SEBAGO — Voters here resoundingly defeated a referendum ballot question at the polls on Tuesday that would have authorized the Sebago Board of Selectmen to issue bonds in the amount of $830,000 to fund a portion of the monies needed to construct a new fire and rescue station.

There were 427 ballots cast against the proposed bonding authorization and 114 ballots in favor.

The defeated referendum question would have authorized the selectmen "to issue bonds or notes in the amount of $830,000, which funds would have been callable, for the purpose of funding a portion of the costs of the town's proposed fire-rescue station facility to be located at a site on the east side of Route 114, which site the voters previously authorized the town to acquire and develop."
