An Act To Amend the Brunswick Sewer District Charter

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. P&SL 1947, c. 77, 31, sub- 1, last sentence, as amended by P&SL 1987, c. 104, 2 and affected by 5, is further amended to read:

The total indebtedness at any time shall may not exceed $20,000,000 $25,000,000.

Sec. 2. Referendum; effective date. This Act takes effect when approved only for the purpose of permitting its submission to the legal voters of the Brunswick Sewer District at an election called for that purpose and held by November 7, 2017. The election must be called, advertised and conducted according to the law relating to municipal elections, except that the registrar of voters is not required to prepare or the clerk to post a new list of voters. For the purpose of registration of voters, the registrar of voters must be in session the secular day preceding the election. The subject matter of this Act is reduced to the following question:

“Do you favor changing the debt limit of the Brunswick Sewer District from $20,000,000 to $25,000,000?”

The voters shall indicate by a cross or check mark placed against the word “Yes” or “No” their opinion of the same.

The results must be declared by the municipal officers of the Town of Brunswick and due certificate of the results filed by the clerk with the Secretary of State.

This Act takes effect for all other purposes immediately upon its approval by a majority of the legal voters voting at the election. Failure to achieve the necessary approval in any referendum does not prohibit subsequent referenda consistent with this section, provided the referenda are held by November 7, 2017.

summary

This bill raises the debt limit of the Brunswick Sewer District from $20,000,000 to $25,000,000, pending a referendum held by November 7, 2017 approving the increase.
