PALMYRA, Maine — At Palmyra’s community center it will be business as usual after residents voted at Saturday’s town meeting.

Faced with three ballot choices, residents voted 93-37 to keep the town’s school-turned-community center as is. The building will not be sold and the town office will not move into the community center, the two other options on the town’s warrant regarding the community center.

The community center, which houses Weeville Day Care, among other businesses, will receive $40,000 for upkeep — $20,000 will be raised while the other $20,000 will come from town surplus.

The building, formerly the Palmyra Consolidated School, was closed in 2010. It was given to the town by RSU 19.

A new selectman was also elected Friday.

J. Patrick White earned 117 votes and will be a selectman, replacing Michael Cray, who decided not to seek re-election. Galen Knight received 70 votes and Dan Sprague earned 62 votes.
