Good morning, Hopkinton! Welcome to the daily update we call Hopkinton Today — a quick recap of yesterday’s news, highlights of what’s on tap, and a photo of the day.
The Elementary School Building Committee voted 6-0 on Tuesday to approve a budget not to exceed $158,427,494 for a proposed Elmwood School replacement. Later Tuesday evening, the School Committee voted to endorse the ESBC’s decision with a vote of 5-0. This total will be voted on in early November by Town Meeting and by residents on a ballot question for a debt exclusion.
