New Fire Station – Special Election

A New Fire Station

To complete the final phase of a multiyear endeavor to replace the Maynard Fire Station, a Special Election is scheduled for December 16, 2020.

The election contains only one ballot question, asking whether to support the construction of the station by allowing a “Debt Exclusion” to pay for the project, as was approved in the Fall Special Town Meeting:

Shall the Town of Maynard be allowed to exempt from the provisions of proposition two and one-half, so-called, the amounts required to pay for the bonds to be issued in order to pay costs of construction of a fire station, including all costs incidental or related thereto? Yes / No

A Yes vote means you support funding the borrowing for the construction fire station through debt exclusion.

A No vote means you do not.
