Lewiston voters will decide July 10 if they want to spend $9.1 million to renovate and expand Lewiston Middle School at 75 Central Ave.
Lewiston property taxpayers would foot the bill for the School Construction Bond to renovate the school. The bond would add about $25 a year on a Lewiston home valued at $100,000. That cost could go down if Lewiston received more money from the state for education.
Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. All voting will take place at the Multi-Purpose Community Center, 145 Birch Street (Longely School building). Parking is available in the Colisée lot.
Deadline to order absentee ballots is Thursday, July 5, 2012 by 4:30 p.m. Voters wishing to cast an absentee ballot may do so in person at the City Clerk’s Office, 2nd Floor of City Hall.
Voters who would like to have an absentee ballot mailed to their home can call the City Clerk’s Office at 513-3124. Requests must be received before 4:30pm on Thursday, July 5, 2012.
Questions regarding this election can be directed to the Lewiston City Clerk’s Office
If Lewiston voters approve the $9.1 million bond for renovation, the school department would then seek bids. Construction would begin in the summer of 2013.
