Override request now less likely to come before voters

Shrewsbury – After a lengthy, spirited discussion during their April 23 meeting, the members of the Board of Selectmen backed away from approving a request to ask the voters for a Proposition 2-1/2 override this spring. During the meeting, the board reviewed the latest figures for the fiscal year (FY) 2014 budget and noted that overall, the news was good. Projected revenue had increased from Town Manager Daniel Morgado's first estimate of $109.36 million to $111.31 million. The budget for the town's schools came in at $51.38 million, still $1.1 million more than Morgado's recommendation.
