Lincolnville Harbor rules

Lincolnville voters agreed that all mooring owners, and those renting moorings, in Lincolnville Harbor, should be able to tie up a tender craft at one of the designated town floats, by a strong majority of 502 to 85.

The change to the Harbor Ordinance now extends tender tie-up privileges to those with moorings in the outer harbor and coastal zone, as well as the inner harbor at Lincolnville Beach. In the past, tender tie-up privileges were granted with mooring ownership or rental, but due to changes over the years, only mooring owners in the inner harbor had tender tie-up privileges.

Voters approved amendments to the town of Lincolnville Land Use Ordinance to make local land-use rules consistent with state guidelines, with a vote of 454 to 121.

Voters approved the Lincolnville Central School budget for the upcoming 2018-19 school year, 540 to 95.

CSD budget and board

Voters approved the Five Town CSD budget with a vote of 615 to 113.

Andrea Palise was elected to a seat on the Five Town CSD School board, with 583 votes.
