ATKINSON – MSAD 41 voters cast their ballots to determine whether the Town of Atkinson withdraw from the district.
The district and the town tried to work out its differences, but the withdrawal committee said taxes are too high when combined with the larger towns in the area.
They said the district has piled on additional fees, but the district argues those fees help fill the financial hole left by Atkinson’s exit. The towns are currently trying to make costly repairs to school buildings.
The Atkinson residents vote 75 to 14 to not borrow money for the school repairs.
