Regional School Unit 12's regional budget meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday at Whitefield Elementary School, 164 Grand Army Road.
Voters who live in the district — Alna, Chelsea, Palermo, Somerville, Westport Island, Whitefield, Windsor and Wiscasset — can attend the meeting to vote on the amount the district may spend on each cost center of the budget. The budget will then go to a referendum on Sept. 10.
RSU 12 voters rejected the previous $26.5 million budget on June 29. The school board's new budget is $26.4 million and also incorporates additional state subsidy to reduce the cost to local taxpayers.
The regional budget meeting has been rescheduled to fall within 45 days of the first referendum, as required by state law.
