At the polls

Barrows won reelection to a three-year term on the Board of Selectmen with 163 votes.

Petrea Allen, Robyn Tarantino and John Williams ran unopposed on the ballot for three open three-year terms on the Budget Committee, and were all elected.

Harbaugh was elected with 144 votes to a three-year term on the Lincolnville Central School Committee. He was appointed to a one-year term on the school board in June 2018.

Briar Lyon was elected to a one-year term on the LCS committee, Deb Harbaugh was elected to a three-year term on the Five Town CSD Board, and Jordan Parker was elected to a two-year term on the Lincolnville Budget Committee. All three were elected as write-in candidates, and accepted the positions, according to Town Administrator David Kinney.

Voters approved, 146 to 32, the 2019-20 budget for Lincolnville Central School. The budget totals $3,748,120, up $205,680, or 5.8 percent, from the prior year. The state education subsidy increased 55 percent to $542,454, up $215,995 from 2018-19. After revenues are subtracted from expenses, the total to be raised from property taxes is $3,203,265, which will neither increase nor decrease taxes.

Lincolnville voters approved, 144 to 34, the 2019-20 Five Town CSD budget for secondary education, totaling $12,907,565.93. This represents an increase of 2.89 percent over the 2018-19 budget. Due to a 2.51-percent decrease in revenues, the impact of the total budget on taxpayers is an increase of 4.02 percent.

Lincolnville's share of the CSD budget totals $1,663,166, up 5.46 percent from last year.

Voting will continue on the municipal budget at town meeting on Thursday, June 13, at 6 p.m. at Lincolnville Central School.

The election results were reported as unofficial by the town of Lincolnville. Official results will be updated.
