With the presidential Super Tuesday done, Waldo County looks forward to a month of Super Saturdays — and a handful of notable weekdays — as more than a dozen towns hold their annual meetings.

Below are previews of meetings that will be held in the next two weeks, along with dates of those that have been set for late March and early April. VillageSoup will preview those later town meetings in future issues.

Note: Some towns hold municipal elections in advance of the annual town meeting, others elect officials from the floor (at the meeting itself). See individual listings for the process in your town.

Saturday, March 10

Palermo — 9 a.m., Palermo Consolidated School. Three candidates — S. Blake Brown, Holly Harmon and Robert Temple — will be vying for one open select board seat, currently held by Chairwoman Sophie Glidden, who is not seeking re-election. Incumbent treasurer Contessa Mancini is being challenged by Angela Nelson. Road Commissioner Scott Childs is running unopposed for re-election. Will Sugg is running for RSU 12 board of directors.

Other notable items on the town meeting warrant include proposed cuts to salaries for hired municipal staff members. The recommendations follow on the heels of a study by a town Compensation Committee that found Palermo was paying more for town office staff than similar communities. The warrant also contains a proposed $100,000 draw from surplus to lower the tax rate.

Searsport — 9 a.m., Searsport District Middle/High School gymnasium. Elections were held March 6 at Union Hall. Residents re-elected Selectmen Aaron Fethke and Joe Perry in a five-way race for the two seats.

The most contentious item on the town meeting warrant will like be the last, which asks if voters want to approve a 180-day moratorium on liquefied petroleum gas projects. The article relates to a proposal from Colorado-based DCP Midstream to build a 22.7-million-gallon propane tank and terminal facility at Mack Point. The moratorium comes in response to a successful petition drive that was spearheaded by those in town who either oppose the project or wish to take time to review town ordinances before the project is allowed to move forward. The moratorium, if approved, would be retroactive to Nov. 23, 2011 and would trigger the formation of an independent committee that will review town ordinances and the comprehensive plan to make sure the town has adequate regulations in place to ensure the health and safety of the residents.

Other items that are expected to get voters talking will be proposed wind facility and floodplain management ordinances, and recommended changes to existing Site Plan Review and Land Use Ordinances.

Freedom — 10 a.m., Dirigo Grange Hall. Elections will be held the preceding day, Friday, March 9, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Selectman Clint Spaulding is seeking re-election against challenger Frances Silenzi-Walker. The post carries a three-year term. Town clerk, tax collector and excise tax collector Cynthia Abbott is running unopposed for re-election, as is Treasurer Erna Keller. Voters will elect a representative for a three-year term on the Regional School Unit 3 board of directors. Myrick Cross is running unopposed for the seat currently held by Kathy Cunningham, who is not seeking re-election. The ballot also asks residents to vote on enacting the proposed “Town of Freedom Comprehensive Plan” dated 2011.

At the town meeting residents will be asked to consider a non-binding vote to borrow up to $400,000 for building or repaving roads. According to Selectman Brian Jones, the vote is to gauge public sentiment and that another vote would need to be taken to actually approve borrowing the money. Another article asks for a non-binding vote on a resolution to “urge the Maine State Legislature and the United States Congress to amend the United States Constitution to clearly state that corporations are not human beings and do not have the same rights as citizens.” An amendment to the town’s shoreland zoning ordinance would aim to make to former commercial properties between the dam and Route 137, including the old mill, available for redevelopment. Compared to past meetings Jones said there aren’t as many obviously contentious issues.

“I expect it to be calm,” he said, “but you never know.”

Tuesday, March 13:

Swanville — 7 p.m. Kermit Nickerson School, snow date Tuesday, March 20. Elections will be held Monday, March 12 at the Town Office. Polls will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. On the ballot will be one select board position for a three-year term, one opening on the planning board for a five-year term and one seat on the RSU 20 school board for a three-year term. Gina Bonin is running unopposed for the selectman’s seat, and Fred Moylen II is the lone candidate for the planning board post. Incumbent Alexa Schweikert will run against newcomer Fred Black for the school board position. Also up for re-election are the one-year posts for town clerk, excise tax collector and treasurer, all of which are currently held by Helen Christianson, who is running unopposed for re-election.

The 34-article warrant carries few stand-out articles, with the exception being Article 7, which will ask voters to allocate funds to strip old shingles from the Town Office roof and replace them with new 50-year shingles. Selectmen recommend allocating $9,000 for the job, while the Budget Committee suggest setting aside $8,500. Christianson said articles pertaining to road maintenance are expected to generate some discussion, as they have in the past, as well as all articles that will impact the overall budget.

Saturday, March 17:

Brooks — 1 p.m. Morse Memorial School. Selectman Arthur Butler is running for re-election. As of March 7, town officials were unaware of any challengers for the seat but there is no deadline and nominations and voting are conducted from the floor of the town meeting. Residents will be asked to consider revised versions of two ordinances that were rejected at past town meetings relating to inspections for mobile homes and rental units. A public hearing on these will be held on March 15. According to Town Clerk Jane McLaughlin, the bottom line of the proposed municipal budget is down slightly from last year.

Burnham — 1 p.m. Reynolds Corner Municipal Building. Elections will be held the preceding day, Friday, March 16, from 2-7 p.m. at the Reynolds Corner Municipal Building. On the ballot will be one select board member, assessor and overseer of the poor. The position, currently held by Stuart Huff, carries a three-year term. Huff is being challenged by Brent Chase. Also on ballot: treasurer (one-year term, currently Arlene Miles), and highway commissioner (one-year term, currently Roger W. Huff).

Also on the March 16 ballot, residents will weigh in on whether to move town office to old Burnham Village School. The town has owned the school since 2010. According to Town Clerk Carolyn Hamel, there have been two surveys on what to do with the school, the most recent was sent out before Christmas. Of the 177 responses to that survey, Hamel said the most popular recommendation was to move the town office to the old school building (other responses to the survey question about the school building included selling the structure, making it a community center and renting or leasing it; Hamel acknowledged that the town is split on the issue). If the majority votes in favor of moving the town office, residents will be asked at the town meeting how much to raise for planning related to the conversion of the school. Hamel said town officials should have an estimate of the planning costs by the time of the meeting.

Jackson — 9:30 a.m. Community Center, Village Road. Elections will be held from the floor. Residents will vote on one select board seat currently held by Cynthia Ludden. Residents will also be asked to elect officers to a number of municipal positions with single-year terms, including: fire chief, road commissioner, emergency management director, sexton and representative to the Unity Area Regional Recycling Center.

Knox — contact the town office for details: 568-3907

Morrill — 10 a.m. Morrill Community Center. The meeting will be preceded by the annual meeting of the Morrill Village Water District at 8:30 a.m., and a general information session about the town meeting at 9 a.m. A separate special election to choose the RSU 20 director has been canceled. The vote will be taken at the regular town meeting.
