HERMON, Maine (WABI) - Hermon voters approved the school budget at Thursday night’s annual town meeting, but not without controversy.

The budget total approved in the nearly three-hour meeting is $90,000 less than the school committee proposed.

This after the committee last week voted unanimously in favor of hiring a School Resource Officer.

Superintendent Micah Grant says after talking with the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office, the cost would be about $110,000.

We have reached out to the Hermon School Department for clarification on if the school will have enough funding for an SRO.
