CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS DELAYED? 

STATE OFFICIALS PLAN TO DELAY FUNDING FOR 12 PROJECTS ACROSS THE STATE… BECAUSE THEY FEAR REVENUES WILL BE DOWN IN THE NEXT BUDGET CYCLE…..

THE MONEY IS EXPECTED TO COME FROM ISSUING BONDS…..

THE NEW HAMPDEN HIGH SCHOOL IS AMONG THOSE ON THE LIST.

SOME PROJECTS MIGHT BE DELAYED FOR SIX MONTHS… OTHERS FOR A YEAR…..

AN EDUCATION DEPARTMENT SPOKESMAN SAYS THE MOVE WILL ALLOW THE STATE TO DEVOTE 5-MILLION DOLLARS MORE TO EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMING… RATHER THAN CONSTRUCTION FINANCING…..
