UNITY — Residents of Unity approved a $1.27 million budget at Saturday’s annual Town Meeting.

They passed all but one item in the 61-article warrant, tabling a vote on a town electric sign.

Forty-nine residents attended the meeting, held at the Mount View School complex in Thorndike.

Voters amended a handful of articles, including proposals to spend:

• $11,103 for Waldo County Action Partners, which was amended to $2,000.

• $680 for Spectrum Generations, which was amended to $500.

• $500 for Gameloft, which amended to $250.

The amended articles reduced the annual budget to $1,267,380.

On Friday, incumbent Board of Selectmen member Daniel McCormick was reelected. McCormick defeated write-in candidate Lynn Warman 125-54.

Voters are expected to vote later this spring or summer on Unity’s larger issues or expenditures. Town officials hope for a larger turnout after residents are vaccinated against COVID-19.
