LIVERMORE FALLS — Voters will consider two contested selectmen’s races on June 8 at the annual election of town officials, and a proposed $2.73 million municipal budget.

The polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Town Office.

Incumbent Heather Bronish, Jim Long and Sheila Scanlon are seeking one, two-year term on the Board of Selectmen. William Kenniston, incumbent Nixon Ortiz and Josh Tainter will vie for one, three-year seat on the board.

Phoebe Pike is unchallenged in her bid seeking reelection to a three-year term on the Regional School Unit 73 board. The district serves Livermore Falls, Jay and Livermore.

Residents will have 41 other articles to consider for the budget proposal and a request to do a joint purchase for a snowmobile for the Spruce Mountain Ski Slope in Jay. Jay, Livermore and Livermore Falls jointly own the mountain and most of the buildings at the ski area.

The Spruce Mountain Ski Club operates the ski slope and owns the equipment. Voters in Livermore Falls are being asked to withdraw $2,240.50 from the fund balance for the machine. Livermore Falls’ share is 33% of the cost. Jay’s share is 49% and Livermore’s portion is 17%.

The proposed budget for 2021-22 represents an increase of $82,397, or just over 3%, from the current budget. It does not include the town’s share of the RSU 73 or Androscoggin County assessments.
