Cheshire residents approved six capital expenditures at referendum in Tuesday’s election.
Resident Laura Proulx said, “I voted yes for all of them.”
Republican Registrar of Voters Susan Pappas said residents approved nearly $1.1 million in school security improvements, $500,000 for window replacements at Cheshire High School and a districtwide lavatory improvements program, and $340,000 for the removal and replacement of underground oil storage tanks at Doolittle, Humiston, Chapman and Dodd schools, as well as $1.5 million road improvement program.
A $640,000 appropriation and bond authorization for the replacement of a fire truck pump engine was also approved on Tuesday. Deputy Fire Chief Donn Youngquist on Tuesday said “we’re very thankful to voters and the support they continue to show throughout the years.”
