Brookfield voters approved both bond requests up for referendum Tuesday, giving the green light for several maintenance projects around town and the second-to-last approval needed for Phase II of the Still River Greenway.
The $1,037,000 capital projects bond passed by a vote of 1,290-327 (margin of 963 votes), enabling the town to fund renovations at the Brookfield Library, high school, Center Fire Station, Town Hall and Town Garage. (See a full list here.)
Voters also approved a bond allocation for $2,407,000 to complete the 2-mile Still River Greenway by a vote of 1,360-273 (1,087-vote margin).
Construction will begin once the plan is approved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and 80 percent of the cost ($1,925,600) will be refunded through federal and state grants.
