ST. GEORGE, Maine — The Select Board will likely decide Monday evening when to schedule an election to fill a vacancy on its panel.

John Snow submitted his resignation earlier this month and the board accepted it at its June 10 meeting. Snow resigned for health reasons.

Snow was elected in 2011 and his term was set to expire in 2014.

Next week, Town Manager John Falla said the board will discuss whether to hold a special municipal election to fill his seat or wait for an already scheduled election. The next regular election will be in November, but there will be a referendum this summer to revote the Regional School Unit 13 budget, Falla said.

That referendum is expected to be held in mid-to-late August, according to RSU 13 Superintendent Lewis Collins. St. George is part of RSU 13.

The town select board has five seats.
