Public Meeting Set on Pair of Ballot Questions

ELLSWORTH — The Maine Municipal Association has scheduled a meeting for Tuesday, Sept. 22, at 6 p.m. for the purpose of getting information about two citizen initiatives that will be decided by the voters on Election Day Nov. 3.


The meeting will be held at the Ellsworth City Hall auditorium.

One of the citizen initiatives that will be discussed at the meeting is the Excise Tax initiative (Question 2) that proposes to cut the motor vehicle excise tax rates by 50 percent or more for newer vehicles and provide full sales tax and excise tax exemptions for hybrid and “alternative technology” motor vehicles.

The other citizen initiative that will be discussed is the newest version of the Taxpayer Bill of Rights initiative (Question 4), commonly referred to as TABOR or TABOR II.

Both proponents and opponents of these two initiatives are invited to this meeting in order to make presentations and answer questions from the audience.

The general public is invited to attend.
