WOODSTOCK — Selectmen decided Tuesday night to hold a public hearing on School Administrative District 44’s cost-sharing formula.

The hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Town Office.

Selectman Ronald Deegan said it’s important that Woodstock residents know all the facts and understand what they are voting on and the results should the referendum pass. He suggested Woodstock hold a public hearing to answer questions voters may have.

Town Manager Vern Maxfield will prepare a PowerPoint presentation and the three Woodstock representative on the SAD 44 cost-sharing committee will each speak about how they plan to vote and their reasons.

SAD 44 has scheduled a referendum on the change Nov. 8.  

Stephen Bies also let fellow selectmen know that when his term is over in March, he’ll be stepping down. Bies has served five nonconsecutive terms as a selectman.
