What about debt exclusions?

There will likely be a debt exclusion ballot question that would authorize the Town to finance the possible new Pierce School building. The Town estimates that the total temporary annual cost of servicing that debt will be about $12.6M per year over 25 years.  For more information on this debt exclusion and the Pierce School project, please refer to the following page on the PSB’s website: https://www.brookline.k12.ma.us/pierce-project
