Special Election – December 16, 2020
The Town of Maynard will hold a Special Election on Wednesday, December 16, 2020, all precincts will vote at the Fowler School, polls will be open from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM. Residents will cast ballots on a proposed debt exclusion to fund construction costs for the fire station.
This proposed $16 million capital project addresses much-needed new construction. Approval of this article completes the final phase of a multi-year endeavor to replace the fire station. The town already purchased land on Sudbury Street for the sole purposes of the construction of a new fire station, and a design of the station was appropriated for at the 2018 Annual Town Meeting. Borrowing rates are reportedly at their lowest in recent history, and construction costs are likewise reportedly stable. The additional tax levy proposed for this debt exclusion is approximately $75.00 for the average single-family household in Fiscal Year 2021 (FY21). In FY22 through the proposed 30-year bond, an additional $150.00 would be levied for the average single-family household.
Question #1 on the ballot reads:
“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?”
A Yes vote means you support funding the borrowing for the construction fire station through debt exclusion.
A No vote means you do not.
