Local Votes for Feasibility Study and Project Scope and Budget
Pursuant to G.L. c. 70B and 963 CMR 2.10, the Massachusetts School Building Authority ("MSBA") has issued the following Vote Bulletins to inform cities, towns, and regional school districts that have been invited by the MSBA into the Eligibility Period or to enter into a Project Scope and Budget Agreement with the MSBA of the requirements for warrant articles, motions, orders, and votes related to any potential projects that may be eligible for MSBA funding.
** Please note that only cities, towns, and regional school districts that have been invited into the Eligibility Period by the MSBA should vote to authorize funds for a feasibility study. Also, only cities, towns, and regional school districts that have been invited to enter into a project scope and budget agreement with the MSBA should vote to authorize a project, and such vote should not occur until after the project scope and budget have been approved by the MSBA.
Communities are urged to contact the MSBA before finalizing an article, motion, resolution, ballot question or other vote because there may be additional requirements depending on the particulars of your project. If a city, town or regional school district already has voted to authorize a project, please contact the MSBA immediately.
