SIDNEY — The municipal election in Sidney is scheduled for 12:15 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at the Town Office, while the Town Meeting is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Saturday at James H. Bean School.

The Town Hall is at 2986 Middle Road, while James H. Bean School is at 2896 Middle Road.

The town’s 3,606 registered voters are to act on a $2,265,489 budget as part of the 38-article warrant. Last year’s budget was $2,179,879.

“Overall, our budget for this year has not changed much, and even with the pandemic, the town overall did well,” Desiree Hersom, the Sidney Board of Selectmen administrator, wrote in an email. “We will have a higher surplus than last year and with that a result of less taxes needing to be raised to fund town operations.”

Other articles include a vote to retrofit the Fire Department’s tanker, and on the revaluation of all town property.

Article 21 asks to appropriate up to $100,000 to upgrade the fire tanker.

Article 27 asks to appropriate $150,000 for the revaluation of all taxable and tax-exempt property in town. The Board of Selectpersons would contract with an appraisal company.

Two of the five spots on Sidney’s Board of Selectmen are up for election. Incumbent Andrew McMullen is on the ballot for his spot, and Ronda Snyder is running to succeed a former board member who resigned. McMullen and Snyder are running unopposed.
