Voters OK senior center project
HUDSON - Voters on Tuesday gave overwhelming support to a $4.4 million Proposition 2-1/2 debt exclusion to pay for a renovation-expansion project at the senior center.
The vote was 3,802 in favor, and 1,732 opposed. Voters at a special town meeting in November agreed to place the proposal on the special presidential primary ballot.
The project will include the design, rehabilitation, construction, equipping, furnishing and addition of 14,000 square feet at the senior center at 29 Church St.
The town has used a $263,000 Community Development Block Grant to begin the design work.
Town Executive Assistant Paul Blazar said the debt exclusion will cost the average single-family homeowner about $60 the first year and decrease in subsequent years.
