Bangor City Councilors Leonard, Sprague, Schaefer, and Tremble on Zoom
Here are the Bangor Maine ARPA application voting results from July 18, 2023. Each city councilor's votes are listed.

On July 18, 2023 the Bangor City Council held an up or down vote on whether or not to move certain applications forward in the ARPA funding process. A successful YES vote does not guarantee funding. It only ensures that the application will receive a discussion during a City Council ARPA workshop meeting.

Here are the results. Scroll down below to see each Councilor’s voting choices. You can see the video recording of the meeting here.
