Notice is hereby given that the Lincoln Town Council will hold a public hearing on Monday, September 28, 2015 at 7:00 PM at the Council Chambers, 63 Main Street, Lincoln, for the purpose of hearing oral and written comments to consider the adoption of an order entitled “Town of Lincoln Order 2015-1”, which authorizes the appropriation of funds in an amount not to exceed $1,150,000. Both the public hearing and Town Council meetings are open to the public. A copy of the order will be made available to the public, once approved at the office of the Town Clerk and is available for public inspection during regular office hours. Pursuant to Article VIII, Section 801 of the Town Charter, the order and appropriation of funds shall be submitted for approval by the voters of the Town of Lincoln at a Referendum Election to be held on November 3, 2015.
QUESTION 1: Shall the Order 2015-1 of the Lincoln Town Council, authorizing the Town to lease the Courthouse located at 52 Main Street by appropriating up to $250,000 of unappropriated fund balance and designated reserve accounts and entering into a ten year lease purchase contract, and calling for the Town to borrow up to $700,000 to finance improvements to bring the Courthouse into compliance with the Town and State Building Codes and the Americans With Disabilities Act, so that the Courthouse may be used as the Town Office, be approved?
SUMMARY: The Town wishes to acquire the Courthouse for use as a Town Office. To do this, the Town will make a down payment of $250,000 and enter into a ten-year lease purchase agreement, paying approximately $2,070 per month, for a total cost of approximately $500,000. In order to use the Courthouse as a Town Office, the Town will be required to install an elevator to make it accessible to persons with disabilities and to make various repairs and improvements in order to bring it into compliance with the Town and State Building Codes. The cost of the elevator and other required repairs and improvements will be $700,000. To pay for them, the Town will borrow $700,000. Upon approval of the Town’s Downtown Tax Increment Financing district and this expenditure by the Town and the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development, the Town intends to use TIF revenues to repay the loan over ten years.
