News and Announcements

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

The Regional School Unit 24 Board of Directors will host a Public Hearing regarding the June 11, 2019 referendum on the issuance of bonds or notes to construct and equip a new middle/high school in an amount not to exceed $44,147,166. The Board will present the concept design and accept comments and answer questions about the proposed project, the portion of the project that will be supported with State funding, items that must be funded locally, and the impact of the debt service and estimated additional operating costs on local property taxes. The event will be held on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 6:30 P.M. at Sumner Memorial High School. All RSU 24 residents are cordially invited to attend.

Tax Implications for New Building Project

The document used as part of the Public Meeting and Straw Poll on March 20, 2019, which explained the budget (tax) implications, was inaccurate due to an error in the formula calculation. The corrected amounts are much more favorable and you will see a dramatic decrease in the tax burden from what was presented at the meeting. Please take a moment to review the attached (revised) document and let us know if you have any questions.
