Voters favoring budget of $45.6 million for school

Supporters of a proposed $45.6 million budget for the the Maine School Administrative District 6 outnumbered opponents in a partial tally late Tuesday.

The Bonny Eagle district includes Buxton, Frye Island, Hollis, Limington and Standish. With Buxton, Standish and Limington reporting, the vote was 1,249-902.

The budget is up 2.36 percent, or just over $1 million, from the current budget and maintains the same level of educational programming. If the budget is approved, annual property taxes on a $200,000 home would decrease by $12.37 in Standish and increase by $75.96 in Buxton, $59.02 in Hollis, $117.01 on Frye Island and $36.71 in Limington.
