Taxes, school repairs on Wenham Town Meeting agenda

WENHAM — Taxes, budget transfers and funding for school repairs are among the items up for discussion at tomorrow’s Special Town Meeting.

Town Meeting will convene at 10 a.m. at Buker Elementary School, 1 School St. The meeting warrant has six articles, all of which deal with financial issues.

Wenham voters will be asked to approve funding for several school projects that were also on the warrant at Hamilton’s Town Meeting on Oct. 13: $575,000 for a new roof at Cutler Elementary in Hamilton and $1.5 million for a list of miscellaneous projects throughout the district.

The Massachusetts School Building Authority is expected to reimburse the district for up to 43 percent of the cost for the Cutler roof.

The second, $1.5 million article includes replacing the roof at Winthrop Elementary in Hamilton; replacing insulation, windows and a fire suppression system at Buker School in Wenham; replacing windows at Cutler Elementary; and making $409,000 worth of miscellaneous building repairs throughout the district.
