VEAZIE, Maine — The final step in Veazie’s school budget approval process will take place on Tuesday, when voters go to the polls to take part in the budget validation referendum.

The polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the town office. Absentees ballots are available as well, according to Deputy Clerk Julie Strout.

The $4.2 million gross budget proposed for 2013-14 was developed by the transitional school committee the town appointed to oversee local education through July 1, when Veazie’s withdrawal from RSU 26 takes effect.

The local share of the budget is slightly more than $2.8 million, down 6 percent from this year.
