Council approves two bond order requests from school board

On Monday, April 11, 2022 the Town Council voted to approve two separate bond order requests from the School Board.  The first bond order, in the amount of $1,161,082  is to finance a School Revolving Renovation Fund (SRRF) for ten separate school improvement projects at all three schools utilizing the State of Maine's SRRF Program.  Business Manager Marcie Weeks applied for the SRRF grant in the fall of 2021 for facility improvements that qualified under the state's parameters for health, safety and compliance issues [Article].  These improvements are relocatable and can be moved to any new future school buildings.

The second bond order, in the amount of $650,000, authorizes the expense of a schematic design for a new elementary and middle school project.  The schematic design will provide a more accurate estimate of costs and overall design ahead of the November 2022 building project referendum.  For more information please visit the Building Project website
