BLUE HILL — Although the amendments and points of order came thick and fast, Blue Hill voters were much in agreement on two issues at Saturday’s annual session.
They supported creation of a pre-K program and they favored full funding of the $4,688,780 school budget for 2013-2014. The pre-K motion, however, failed on a 53-65 written ballot. The school budget was approved unanimously on a voice vote.
Though selectmen, school board members, the school superintendent and voters agreed on the need for a pre-K program, they disagreed on the timing. School Supt. Mark Hurvitt said the idea is a good one but this isn’t the budget year for new programming.
