Serving up a decision
Northborough/Southborough – Ever since the 2006 completion of the Algonquin Regional High School renovation/reconstruction project, Northborough and Southborough have been going back and forth about how much each town should receive of the $36 million in state reimbursement funds. Given two approaches – one based on the regional contract's cost break-down, which depends on relative student population, and one based on the state's revised reimbursement formula – each town has taken the stance that benefits it financially.
The most recent court decision sided with Northborough. If Southborough does not win its appeal, the town could have to pay potentially $1.5 million more for the project.
