It’s time to replace the windows at Watertown Middle School and the town hopes to get help from the state to pay for the work.
Superintendent Jean Fitzgerald told the Town Council that the school has 207 windows which are 36 years old. On Tuesday, the Council approved the School Department’s application to the School Building Authority’s accelerated repair program.
The School Committee then approved the application at a special meeting on Thursday scheduled just to take the vote.
The estimated cost of the project is $310,000. If successful, the town would get nearly half the project paid for by state funds. Last year, Watertown qualified for a reimbursement rate of 48 percent, said Town Manager Michael Driscoll.
