By Nick McCrea, BDN Staff

VEAZIE, Maine — The town will hold a special election Tuesday, March 27, at which residents will decide whether they want to move forward in the withdrawal process from RSU 26.

Polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the municipal building, 1084 Main St., and absentee ballots are available by calling or visiting the town office.

The warrant article reads:

“Do you favor filing a petition for withdrawal from Regional School Unit 26 (Riverside RSU) with the Board of Directors of Regional School Unit 26 and the Maine Commissioner of Education, authorizing a withdrawal committee to expend no more than $50,000 to accomplish the withdrawal, and authorizing the Veazie Town Council to issue notes or pledge credit in the name of the Town of Veazie for this purpose, all as required by state law and authorizing that expenditure from the Town’s undesignated (unassigned) fund balance for this purpose?”
