Southbridge (MA) voters approved a request to fund a $25.7 million Proposition 2 ½ debt exclusion to pay for the construction of a new fire station on Worchester Street, reports telegram.com.

The money will pay for construction of the new station, which will replace the existing 122-year-old station on Elm Street. This would increase property taxes by an estimated 6% to 8% to pay the debt service for design, site acquisition, and construction for the project.

The tax increase will remain in effect until the bonds are fully paid.
