Dear Residents of North Yarmouth and Cumberland,

On behalf of the MSAD #51 Board of Directors I want to take this opportunity to thank the community members from both towns who attended the May 14th District Budget meeting. The District Budget meeting was an opportunity to discuss and vote on the budget in the first of two required votes.  The Board appreciates your time and participation in this very important process.

The 2015-2016 District Budget passed Thursday by a vote of 40-6 and now moves to the Budget Validation Referendum on June 9, 2015.  Voters in both towns can vote immediately by absentee ballot during the times posted below or by attending the polls on June 9, 2015.  Please take the time to vote on next year’s budget and, as always, our sincere thanks for participating in the 2015-2016 budget process.
