BIDDEFORD — Voters in Biddeford were in a spending mood Nov. 3, approving two bonding referendum questions by wide margins.
Official results released by City Clerk Carmen Morris show voters favored a $10 million, 20-year bond issue for storm and sanitary sewer improvements 6,795 to 4,065.
They also approved a $7.5 million, 20-year bond for sidewalk, road, and drainage improvements and upgrades to city-owned buildings 7,198 to 3,638.
The city’s calculations show the tax impact over the life of the 20-year bonds would be about $109 on a home valued at $227,100 — the median house value in Biddeford.
In all, 60.34 percent, or 11,139 of Biddeford’s 16,064 registered voters cast ballots in the Nov. 3 election, according to Morris.
