In Burlington, $9.7 million bond on ballot
Voters in Burlington are being asked to approve a $9.7 million bond to pay for repairs and renovations at school buildings.
If approved Tuesday, school officials say, the money would go to replace boilers at the J.J. Flynn school and windows at C.P. Smith school and fortify a failing roof at Lawrence Barnes School.
Schools Superintendent Jeanne Collins says the work would ultimately save taxpayers money on energy and on emergency repairs.
Voters also are also being asked to approve a school budget with a 9.1 percent increase.
