Saugus serves up success of recent accomplishments by the slice

SAUGUS — The town manager and selectmen will celebrate Saugus’ success over slices and sodas Wednesday night at Prince Pizzeria.

Residents and business owners are invited to join in on the festivities, which will begin at 5:30 p.m., during which Town Manager Scott Crabtree will highlight recent accomplishments that he said are historical for the town, including the support for a new education plan.

Voters approved a combination middle and high school, and renovation to the Belmonte Middle School and Veterans Memorial Elementary School in a special election in June, which included two debt exclusions; one for a $160 million school building project with contributions from the Massachusetts School Building Authority totaling more than $65 million, and the other for a $25 million investment in restructuring the district.

Crabtree will also discuss the town’s financial success and stability, and green initiatives in the past year, including an investment in electric cars and an electric car charging station.

The town has received more than $5.5 million in outside grants and other funding in the past three years, and capital improvements were made to several public parks and playgrounds.

“I encourage all residents, elected and appointed officials, staff, and business owners to come out and celebrate the town’s collective success, and to reflect on all that we have accomplished by working together and speaking in one voice,” said Crabtree.
