Two Massachusetts towns squabble over high school renovation funding

May 11, 2009
Northborough and Southborough disagree over how the renovation money was allocated

From The Boston Globe: In Massachusetts, Northborough and Southborough are facing off in a thorny dispute over how the towns should have shared $35 million in state reimbursement for the $60 million renovation of their regional high school. Northborough officials say their town was shortchanged and that Southborough owes it $1.4 million. Southborough officials say the grant was divided the way it should have been. And with a proposed compromise turned down by one of the neighboring towns, the dispute is back where it started, the school board that governs their shared Algonquin Regional High School.
