Union — The five towns in Regional School Unit 40 will hold their budget referendum vote Wednesday, June 18.

Polling times are as follows:

10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friendship and Waldoboro town offices

10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Warren Town Office

2 p.m. to 6 p.m., Union Town Office and Washington, Gibbs Library

The proposed $22.7 million budget is a 2.47 percent increase instead of a perceived 3.37 percent increase over last year for voters — made possible primarily by bringing $200,000 of MaineCare expenditures and reimbursements into the general fund balance, according to Business Manager Karla Miller.

The five-town breakdown of contributions is:

— Friendship, $1,721,612, up 2.01 percent or $34,006 from last year

— Union, $1,961,883, up .11 percent or $2,061

— Waldoboro, $4,560,645, down 1.3 percent or $60,254

— Warren, $3,503,654, up 3.39 percent or $114,754

— Washington, $1,295,527, down 1.12 percent or $14,692

RSU 40 serves the towns of Friendship, Union, Waldoboro, Warren and Washington.
