Budget trimmed for new Briggs School in Ashburnham
The budget for the new John R. Briggs Elementary School has been trimmed back down to what officials call an acceptable amount, thanks to two weeks of work by the professionals involved with the project to seek out lower bids and the Briggs Building Committee's acceptance of their suggestions Thursday night.

Didn't they say when we voted on this 'This is a really good time to build, prices are down.....'. The other thing I don't get is 'reducing the size of storage areas'- Have you seen the current classrooms, they have 10lbs worth in a 5lb bag. What's the over-under on a February ground breaking, things keep getting pushed back don't they..... One more thing, I hope these bids are inflation/fuel price protected or another over-ride vote will be needed; or a cheap non-functional school will be built.
I didn't really like the idea of a new school, but the town voted for it, so LET'S NOT WASTE A DOLLAR TO SAVE A PENNY. Build it right, do not cut corners, we are going to have the bills for at least 30 years; and hopefully the school for alot longer.
