and a
worth of articles
The six articles to be consid-
ered at the Special Town Meet-
ing total slightly more than $7
million to be transferred from
existing funds or borrowed. The
five other articles include the
following:
$1.5 million to be trans-
ferred from certified “free
cash” account to the town’s
Stabilization Fund.
$500,000 to be transferred
from certified “free cash” ac-
count to pay for maintenance
and repairs of the parks and
playgrounds in the town.
$500,000 to be borrowed
for designing, construct-
ing, repairing and replacing
equipment at parks and play-
grounds in the town. This
would fund lighting and secu-
rity cameras at the park and
playground projects approved
at last year’s Annual Town
Meeting. It also includes spe-
cial security cameras at the
Police Department so activi-
ty at these recreational areas
can be monitored.
$150,000 to be transferred
from certified “free cash” ac-
count to the Other Post-Em-
ployment Benefits (OPEB)
Trust.
$82,000 in short-term
borrowing for the purchase
of Chromebooks for the
Saugus Publ ic Schools.
This art icle is simi lar to
an article authored by the
School Committee for the
Annual Town Meet ing to
buy Chromebooks that are
necessary so that students
can take MCAS tests online
next year.
Shooting for AAA bond
rating
Crabtree crafted Article 1 to
bolster a major fiscal initiative
and philosophy that he hailed
as “historic” and “the most im-
portant vote for me”during last
year’s Annual Town Meeting.
Town Meeting members last
year approved a record-setting
deposit of $1.5 million into the
town’s Stabilization Fund, which
boosted the town’s so-called
“rainy day fund” to an all-time
high of $4.3 million. There was
only$524,000inthetown’sStabi-
lizationFundwhenCrabtreetook
over as townmanager in 2012.
Crabtree told Town Meeting
members last year that he’d like
to create a surplus of between
3 and 5 percent annually on a
consistent basis. Eventually, he
said, he would like to increase
the fund up to $8 million.
The town manager predicted
the record surplus in the stabi-
lization fund will pave the way
for further upgrades in thebond
rating, while creating new op-
tions on how the town can use
its money, such as “a pay as you
go capital improvements plan.”
“We’re four rungs higher than
we’ve ever been in the histo-
ry of Saugus,” Crabtree told Fi-
nance Committee members
at Wednesday night’s meeting
when advocating for another
$1.5 million transfer from free
cash to be deposited into the
Stabilization Fund.
“Thegoal is tobecomeaTriple-
A [AAA bond rating] communi-
ty,”he said of the top bond rating
