Saugus is one of 12 communities that make up the regional vocational school district. Crabtree offered his estimate during the meeting after school officials briefed the Finance Committee on developments in the new building project being considered. Northeast Metro Tech Superintendent-Director David S. DiBarri said the school district has been invited by the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) to the feasibility stage of the project, which he estimates will take 18 months to two years – to complete a study at a cost estimated at $1.3 to $1.4 million. Funds have already been set aside for the study, so there would be no need for school officials to seek additional funds from Saugus and other communities. “We won’t be asking Saugus for a penny until construction,” DiBarri said. If everything proceeds as hoped, that stage of the project could be happening during 2022, according to DiBarri. He noted that about 72 percent of the costs would be reimbursed by the MSBA. Crabtree mentioned several times that he thought the town would be looking at ballpark cost of $25 million, a million-dollar-a-year investment if bonded over a 30-year period. “I’m not sure with that number,” DiBarri said. The total district assessment for the 2020 fiscal year from the 12 communities is $14.7 million, with Saugus paying the most ($3.2 million) or about 22 percent. At the same time, there are 192 Saugus residents of the 1,242 students expected for the fiscal year – 15.5 percent of the school’s enrollment. Accompanying DiBarri at Wednesday’s meeting were Northeast Metro Tech’s Director of Finance, Jay Picone; Northeast Metro Tech’s Principal/Deputy Director, Carla A.
