The Rockland City Council will meet briefly Monday, June 13 with potential candidates for a vacant seat on the Regional School Unit 13 Board.

The council plans to appoint a replacement for Steven Dyer who resigned effective June 3. Dyer is moving outside Rockland to be closer to his job as an instructor at Thomas College in Waterville.

Donald Robishaw, who had sought appointment to the board for two open seats late last year, expressed his interest again during the public comment session of the June 6 council meeting. Robishaw, a former assistant fire chief and former school bus driver, said he had concerns about the proposed budget for the school district and its impact on Rockland.

Mayor Brian Harden noted there were two other people interested in the seat — former RSU 13 Board members James Kalloch and Nancy Jeffers.

Harden said anyone else interested in serving Rockland on the RSU 13 Board should contact him or the city clerk at city hall.

Rockland has five representatives on the 13-member RSU 13 Board.

The person appointed by the council will serve until November.
