SOUTHBRIDGE — On top of its ongoing middle/high school project, the town is now being asked to accept a long-overdue renovation and expansion at Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School.

In total, it bears a $73.8 million price tag, with Southbridge's share being $3,743,965. Everyone who attended Wednesday's presentation to the Education and Human Services subcommittee seemed supportive of the need and concept, but they all also acknowledged that the cost could be a challenge.

Town Manager Christopher Clark summarized the dilemma everyone's aware of, noting the ongoing school project (slated to open this fall) required extensive negotiating with the state to "feather in the debt and backload it to some degree" so that Southbridge wouldn't need a debt exclusion.
