The Superintendent and members of the Board of Education are concerned about potential health and safety risks posed by the treatment of raw sewage in close proximity to areas where children play sports. Further, there was deep concern over the lack of transparent, responsible and ethical deliberations by the Town in the siting of this sewage treatment plant.
To this end, the Board of Education passed a resolution declaring its strong opposition to the proposed plant for reasons of health, safety and welfare of students and staff and called upon the Town to discontinue its current plans and permit the Board and school community to study the impact and alternative locations.
