At last night’s Board of Selectmen meeting, the Board of Selectmen voted their intent to hold both a special election on February 23, 2015 and a special town meeting on March 9, 2015 to fund a feasibility study under a 2013 grant proposal submitted to the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) for renovation and repairs to the Clyde F. Brown School.

The 2013 Statement of Interest was submitted on April 5, 2013 and outlined the need to repair major building systems and to alleviate overcrowding at the Clyde F. Brown School. In its 2013 SOI Millis requested funding for either a renovation or addition at the Clyde F. Brown School to address the following three priorities:
