Downing Backs Mandatory Vaccinations for Police, Teachers
iBerkshires.com reports the Williamstown Community Preschool is hoping that the town will partner with the nonprofit to help continue to provide affordable child care.
"The board is seeking a long-term solution to bring stability to the preschool's financial model," WCP President Mark Robertson told the town's Finance Committee on Wednesday.
At June's annual town meeting, voters will be asked to approve a $50,000 expenditure to support an operating budget of about $625,000. The town portion of the budget would be about 8 percent of the non-profit's operating budget if approved.
The Williamstown Community Preschool is seeking operational assistance from the town for the first time, but in 2011, town meeting approved $223,000 in Community Preservation Act funds to help the non-profit buy the former church at the corner of Main Street and Water Street.
