    Stefan Hard / Staff Photo Northfield residents gather Tuesday in the auditorium of Northfield Middle and High School to ponder municipal and school issues on Town Meeting Day.

    NORTHFIELD — Town residents approved the Northfield school budget of $10,347,801 by a vote of 604-374.

    They also authorized the transfer of 40 percent of the school district’s surplus from this year’s budget to the long-term maintenance fund with a 735-228 vote. An article for $71,080 for safety and security upgrades to the schools was also approved, 584-376.

    At the floor meeting Tuesday morning, school board Chairman Justin Wrigley addressed a resident’s questions about the details of the security expenditure by saying it was purposely left “bland” but said the plan included entrance cameras and repairs to the school buildings to make them safer.

    Appointed incumbent Emily Gray defeated Rebecca Trower 513-259 for the remaining year on a two-year school director seat.
