J-BHS budget OK’d; BES and JES votes this week

by Nancy Beal

Approximately two dozen citizens from Beals and Jonesport, most of them teachers and school board members, gathered June 10 in the Jonesport-Beals High School gymnasium on chairs placed six feet apart to act on the 2020-21 high school budget. In about a half-hour, by a vote of 17-4, they approved $1,777,934, a figure that is $125,990 more than the bottom line a year ago. Part of the increase is from nearly $40,000 to establish an aquaculture program, for which grant money is being sought.
