Bond Counsel Letter to MSBA only muddies water more!

Where the new site is not being acquired by the City, we do not think that M.G.L. c, 43, s. 34 requires school committee site approval. However, M.G.L. c.43, s. 34, does require the approval of the school committee of the plans for the new high school project, prior to the commencement of work on the project. Any such plans, of course, would necessarily be site specific, and so any such approval would also constitute site approval.

This just emphasizes the need for a Judge to make this ruling!

How can you say on one hand ” M.G.L. c.43, s. 34, does require the approval of the school committee of the plans for the new high school project, prior to the commencement of work on the project” and “so any such approval would also constitute site approval” but then say “As schematic design and the development of plans have only just gotten underway, we do not see that school committee approval is a legal necessity at this time”?

Here is the letter sent to the MSBA by the Bond Counsel
