The budgets for two of the three schools in the Moosabec area were approved last week by small bodies of voters who challenged none of the figures put before them. A total of $1,709,874 was authorized for Jonesport-Beals High School June 15, down a bit from last year’s $1,777,973. The state’s contribution to that amount was presented as $388,554, a bit over $35,000 less than last year. Taxpayers will be expected to pay $546,227 (last year it was about $21,000 less).
