Bucksport Municipal Question 1

Shall the Resolve entitled ‘Borrowing of up to $560,000 for the purpose of replacing two culverts on Jacob Buck Pond and Bucksmills Roads be approved?Information from the Town of Bucksport: "The Town of Bucksport has been offered a grant from the Maine Department of Transportation for $190,000 toward the replacement of two major culverts in the community. One is located on Bucksmills Road at White’s Brook and the other is on Jacob Buck Pond Road at Stubbs Brook. These culverts are in poor condition and located on Town-owned/maintained roads. They are also high on the State’s list for replacement in order to attain fish passage through the installation of culvert types that will allow for that. The total cost of replacement of these two culverts has been estimated at $750,000. Acceptance of the MDOT grant would leave $560,000 to be funded locally. The proposal is to borrow for this project with a fifteen-year repayment. The Town will have to eventually replace these two culverts. Acceptance of these grants will help to defray that cost. The financial impact to the Town’s debt service is shown on the ballot itself.
