The annual Bar Harbor Open Town Meeting was held on Tuesday night, June 4th at the Conners-Emerson School. There were 135 people in attendance.

According to Town Clerk Sharon Linscott:

All school warrant articles passed as presented in the Warrant so the numbers remain unchanged.

Article R, Municipal Expenditures had 3 amendments pass and 1 amendment fail. The revised total approved by voters is $14,525,463.

Article S, Municipal Revenues had 1 amendment pass. The revised total approved by voters is $5,891,055.

This results in a net increase to the overall budget of $12,589. Finance Director Stan Harmon will figure out how that changes the proposed mil rate.

The remaining articles passed as presented.
