Invitation to community meeting on state education aid to RSU3
When: Tue, May 9, 6:30pm – 9:00pm
Where: Walker School, 33 West Main Street Liberty, ME 04949 (map)
Details: A Liberty/Montville group of residents that have been meeting for the last few months to discuss federal and state legislation and local property tax relief issues is focusing on the variety of bills introduced into the Maine legislature on state funding for education. As residents of RSU3, we are concerned that the continued decrease in state education aid to our district will once again place the burden on our property taxes. Therefore, we are holding a community wide informational meeting for all RSU3 residents to discuss the proposed bills focusing on this issue.
We have asked Senator Thibodeau, Representative Herbig, Representative Kinney, and Representative Zeigler to come prepared to speak about the proposed legislation. We have also invited Superintendent Paul Austin to comment on the impact state funding has on our school budget.
This meeting is not intended to be a debate between parties, as this is a topic that impacts all residents and requires a solution that will benefit all taxpayers regardless of their party affiliation. Our intention is to have a community discussion with our legislators and have residents express their opinions.
We hope you will attend, but not until you have voted on the RSU 3 Revolving Renovation Referendum!!
