In addition to the mayor and superintendent, the City Council and School Committee have unanimously endorsed the debt exclusion.
In late 2011, the city closed half of Hunking Middle School due to fears a portion of the building could collapse due to structural problems. About 150 students were bused to a then-closed school on the other side of the Merrimack River. Temporary repairs were made and the students were eventually moved back to Hunking.
The deteriorated building is expected to be usable for only two or three more years.
