Forum promises update on Barrington Middle School project financials

Forum is set for Tuesday, March 7

There will be a special Barrington Middle School Building Forum Update on Tuesday, March 7 at 7 p.m. inside the Barrington Middle School auditorium.

The event is open to the public and will offer updated information on the project as well as the financials related to the work.

A special financial town meeting is set for March 16 — residents will be asked to approve a resolution to exceed the 4 percent tax cap, as annual debt service payments for the bond would exceed a 4 percent increase to the town's tax levy.
