SCARBOROUGH — The lineup for candidates for open seats on town boards has been set.
Voters in November will fill three Town Council seats, elect three people to the Board of Education and fill two seats for the sanitary district. The deadline for candidates to submit nomination papers was Wednesday.
Four residents are running for two, three-year terms on the Town Council. The candidates are incumbent Councilor Jessica Holbrook, and Paul Andriulli, Edward Blaise and Christopher Coon.
William Donovan and Katherine St. Clair are vying for the opportunity to serve two years on the Town Council. The winner will serve the remainder of the term of Karen D’Andrea, who resigned because of work commitments.
There are four candidates for three open seats on the Board of Education. The winners will serve three-year terms. Incumbents Jacquelyn Perry and Jane Wiseman are joined in the race by Donna Beeley and Christopher Caiazzo.
Nick Rico and Ben Viola submitted nomination papers to run for two sanitary district seats.
The Town Council voted Wednesday to place on the ballot a bond to purchase a new ladder truck for the fire department. The truck, which could cost up to $900,000, would replace Ladder 2, a 1988 truck used at the Black Point Fire Station.
Town officials say Ladder 2 has been used by the town for 25 years and must be replaced because of serious frame corrosion issues.
With interest estimated at 2 percent, the total cost to borrow money for a new truck would be $1.08 million.
