RSU 25 voters approve gym floor project



BUCKSPORT — Regional School Unit 25 (RSU 25) voters Tuesday approved a referendum to renovate the Bucksport Middle School gym floor.

The vote was 2,391 yes to 1,626 no.

RSU 25 includes the towns of Bucksport, Orland, Verona Island and Prospect.

Superintendent Jim Boothby said the floor needs to be replaced due to issues with the foundation retaining moisture.

The project will cost $310,000 and work will commence in June 2019. The RSU will fund the work with $75,000 from capital reserve and borrow $235,000 from the town of Bucksport.
