Blue Hill Referendum Question 1

Shall the Town re-enact the ordinance entitled “The Blue Hill Healthy Ecosystem Ordinance”, which was approved by voters at the July 14, 2020 Secret Ballot Town Meeting, which was subsequently determined to be legally void because the Maine Board of Pesticide Control had not first reviewed it as required by state law, and which has now been appropriately reviewed, and would become effective on January 1, 2021?Explanation from Town of Blue Hill: This ordinance was brought to voters on July 14th by a citizen petition and was approved by a 68% “yes” to 32% “no” vote. The failure to get it first reviewed by the state agency was an oversight that caused it to be legally void. That failure has been corrected. The proposed ordinance must now be voted on again to be enacted according to the legal staff at the Maine Municipal Association.
