The City Council held their regular meeting May 16, 2022 to accept the municipal school budget as presented and passed by the Ellsworth School Board. However, the City Council voted to NOT pass the budget.
If you have already requested, received, or returned your school validation ballot, it will NOT BE COUNTED on June 14, 2022 during the State primary. Your STATE BALLOT WILL BE COUNTED.
The City Council will be holding a special meeting before their budget workshop on Monday, May 23rd, 2022 at 6:00 to revisit the school budget vote and resolution. Pending the passage of the budget then, a special school budget validation will be held. The likely date will be in July and you may absentee for that vote if you wish.
