budget for July 1 1976 to June 30 1977 by $90000 The date for voting on the referendum was set for July 9 at the Millinocket Armory The petition signed by over 200 residents was taken after the Millinocket school budget was presented earlier in June The school budget in the amount of $2799523 was presented by the Millinocket School Committee as a “bare budget with no frills" and with the approval of four of the five school board members The local appropriation was set at $2154978 The one board member who dissented Mrs Fredericka Boynton had spearheaded in April a referendum to reduce the amount of monies held in escrow for the school budget by $82320 This referendum was passed by a majority of the voters on April 30 and in May the town council reduced the escrow amount by $82320 But since the school budget had not been presented this did not affect the school budget and when the school budget was presented in May the town council accepted the budget as presented by a five to two vote Mrs Boynton then presented five signatures to the town clerk to take out another petition These would Ranger also said it was his personal opinion that if some people were not satisfied with the present town council the time to show this would be at the next municipal election This was in reply to a statement made previously that some council members should be recalled The petition presented June 25 asked for the $90000 to be taken from Article 1 of the school budget Attorney Stan petitions were circulated by Snowman explained that it Mrs Boynton’s husband' appeared under this article Robert that by reducing the budget At the June 25 meeting by $90000 it would not Council Chairman Gearry reduce the amount to be Ranger said that Although some people had criticized the council for putting school money in escrow the Maine Municipal Association (MMA) had written the council saying the council had acted in a responsible manner n doing this Ranger said th some officials had tried to tell the people who took out the first referendum that it would not serve the purpose they thought it raised by the town taxes as this article dealt with state allocations and not local allocations He said the council had three paths of action They could reject the petition they could change the wording of the petition to article 3 which deals with liTcaC allocation 6r they could accept the petition as presented under Article 1 Mrs Boynton who spoke in the absence of her husband said the intent of the petition was for the budget to be reduced by this amount and she didn’t understand why the amount couldn’t be under article 1 Snowman explained that the MMA stated the state allocation cannot be reduced Mrs Boynton said the petition was taken out in good faith and that Town Manager Michael LaChance should have told the petitioners it wasn't worded correctly LaChance replied that he was not consulted in this and he did not see the petition until late in the final day He said that if he had been consulted he would have advised not taking the petition on article 1 LaChance said “The last time I was accused of ‘intimidating’ was when I advised the petitioners and this time my advice was not sought so 1 did not advise” jilrs Boynton said she directed Mrs Nadine Boddy Town Clerk how to word the petition Councilor Thomas Knight asked if the intent was not to cut taxes Mrs Boynton replied “I am not particularly interested in a tax cut I would just as soon see the money reallocated and would like to see the money redirected to other areas” Carleton McLean former councilor said that “monies raised in school funding must stay in school appropriation” After much discussion the council agreed with Mrs Boynton that the intent of the petitioners was to reduce the school budget by $90000 and the vote was unanimous to take the matter to referendum The referendum will have the $90000 cut from Article 3 which states: “To see what sum the municipality will raise and appropriate for school purposes as local funds without state participation — with a recommended amount of $310838” The council then appointed Carleton McLean as warden for the referendum voting and Mrs Boddy as clerk DOVER FOXCROFT — Judge Jessie H Briggs heard the following complaints on Thursday in the Piscataquis Division of the Maine District Court Earl D Case 32 Blaine
