Framingham Selectmen tabled a vote on approving a 5-year lease for new Framingham Public Schools administrative offices Tuesday night, citing contamination issues with the proposed lease building.
The Framingham Public Schools were looking to lease the Perini building at 73 Mount Wayte for 5 years at more than $325,000 a year, until it was learned that there is contamination issues that could prohibit children within the building.
On advice of Town Counsel, Selectmen tabled its approval of the lease Tuesday night. Instead, Selectmen asked for an environmental consultant and the school system's director of buildings and grounds to inspect the building.
The school system wanted to lease the second floor and 80 parking spaces for administrative offices, as the current King Administration Building is being converted into the town's ninth elementary school.
The school will begin teaching kindergarten students in August.
Selectmen are expected to re-look at the lease at its July 22 meeting.
