FREEPORT — Nomination papers for the Nov. 3 municipal elections are now available at the town clerk’s office at Town Hall.

There are two Town Council seats, three seats on the Sewer District Board of Trustees, and one seat on the Water District Board of Trustees to fill. All are three-year terms.

Candidates for the District 4 Town Council seat held by Councilor Jim Cassida must submit 50 signatures. Candidates for the councilor-at-large position held by Councilor Charlotte Bishop must gather 100 signatures. There are no term limits in Freeport, so both councilors can run again.

The three seats available on the Sewer District Board of Trustees are held by Leon Arsenault, Don Bail and Brenden Alterio. The Water District position is held by Maryann Schwanda. Candidates for either panel must submit 25 signatures.

Nomination papers are due back to the Town Hall, 30 Main St., no later than 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 9.

In addition to the municipal election, voters are expected to decide four statewide referendums: an act to repeal the school consolidation law, an act to promote tax relief, an act to establish the Maine Medial Marijuana Act, and an act to decrease the automobile excise tax and promote energy efficiency.

For more information, contact Town Clerk Beverly Curry at 865-4743, ext. 123.
