Bangor voters pass $41.2M school budget

By Dawn Gagnon, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — Residents approved the $41,238,725 education budget for the 2012-13 school year in a local referendum Tuesday.

The budget, which was passed in a 1,604 to 661 vote, reflects a 0.34 percent decrease from the current budget. Despite the lower bottom line, taxpayers will contribute about 1.9 percent more because the school department expects to receive 5 percent less in state and federal revenue than this year.
