Gateway Collaborative Report

June 12th, 2017 Comments off

The 6 remaining Gateway Regional School District towns –Middlefield, Chester, Blandford, Huntington, Russell, and Montgomery– received a state “Community Compact” grant aimed at identifying ways to share or regionalize services, in order to cut expense with economies of scale, and group buying power, while maintaining or improving town services. The DOR’s Division of Local Services (DLS) has concluded their study of the Towns’ financial departments, and made a proposal to be reviewed and adjusted as the towns see fit, after public discussion.  Read DLS report here. The future projections about the towns’ population, tax rates, and budgets are quite eye-popping. DLS Hilltown Proposal
