MSBA OKs school repair project in area towns

Tantasqua, DC schools, Brookfield to benefit from funds

April 14, 2011
State Sen. Stephen Brewer (D-Barre), State Rep. Todd Smola (R-Palmer), State Rep. Geraldo Alicea (D-Charlton), and State Rep. Anne Gobi (D-Spencer) announced Tuesday, April 12, that the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) voted to approve proposed Green Repair Program projects in the towns of Brookfield, Sturbridge and Charlton.

The aforementioned projects received the following estimated grant approvals: $194,897 for the town of Brookfield to replace the windows at Brookfield Elementary School; $400,506 for the Dudley-Charlton Regional School District to replace the windows at Shepherd Hill Regional High School, and $600,539 for the Tantasqua Regional School District to replace the roof at Tantasqua Regional Junior High School. The final grant amounts, as well as the individual grant amounts for each project, will be determined by MSBA after a review and audit of all project costs. The individual districts now have 90 days to obtain and certify local approval for the proposed projects.

"I am pleased that the MSBA has decided to approve these projects," Brewer said. "The improvements made at these schools will allow for a better learning environment for both students and teachers."

Gobi agreed, stating, "The Brookfield and Tantasqua districts continue to do their part to reduce the costs to the taxpayers by finding other funding mechanisms to repair their schools. These grants will make sure that our schools will be more energy efficient."
