Special Town Meeting will be held Thursday, Aug. 18 beginning at 7 p.m. at the Hopkinton High School Field House/Athletic Center, 90 Hayden Rowe St.

The Select Board voted Tuesday, Aug. 2 to place one article on the Special Town Meeting Warrant relating to an addition to the Marathon Elementary School.

This funding, if approved, will supplement previously approved funding for the project. A two-thirds vote at Special Town Meeting will be needed to pass the measure.

The signed warrant can be found on the Town of Hopkinton website.
