School’s Wood Boiler 

Project Up for Re-Vote


By: David Deschesne

Fort Fairfield Journal, January 11, 2012

FORT FAIRFIELD—The Fort Fairfield school system’s heating conversion to a wood chip boiler building is being placed up for a new public referendum due to a discrepancy in the public notice given before the November vote.

The public referendum did have a public notice portion, but it was one day short of the State’s mandate. So, the whole referendum process has to start over again, thus delaying the construction commencement on the overall project.

“This technicality could have placed our 0% interest financing in jeopardy. To avoid this possibility we have scheduled a new referendum for January 19, 2012. The polls will be open from 2 to 6 pm and the question before the voters will be exactly the same as last time,” said Superintendent, Marc Gendron. “The error was mine and I apologize for the inconvenience of having to vote on the same issue twice. The results of the first election strongly supported the project and none of the fundamentals have changed.”
