The $87.3 million package of bond issues on the November 8 ballot represents the most expensive borrowing package the state's voters have seen in five years, yet the issues have attracted little public notice because of the full slate of political contests. The bonds issues include $9 million for sewer plants and cleaning up hazardous waste; $20 million to close landfills; $5 million for the University of Maine System; $15 million for job-creation programs; $21.3 million for transportation and other programs; $5 million for the Maine Technical College System; $2 million for improvements at the Baxter School for the Deaf; and $10 million to improve and expand fish hatcheries.
