Westford school officials said a cost increase occurred for a window replacement project.
Westford school officials said recently that because of inflation and other reasons, the cost of the Norman E. Day School and Col. John Robinson School window replacement projects will likely be doubled.

According to a report in the Lowell Sun, during a Board of Selectmen and Finance Committee meeting last week, officials said that in total the project could cost upwards of $4.5 million.

Westford was granted partial reimbursement for the project by the Massachusetts School Building Authority, with the condition that the work be completed by 18 months from June 2013. However, The Sun reported that the construction may have to be pushed back until 2015.

Maybe open some pot dispensaries in town so we can afford to not go down the prop 2.5 override path, otherwise they are going to reach further into our wallets weather we like it or not for expensive pet projects, New windows at Abbott?! There are classrooms or nearly 30 kids packed into those small classrooms but the windows is where the money is spent....when is the redistrict drum gonna get louder?
