Council Approves Nearly $800,000 for Bangor Arena Site Plans 

There was a special meeting of the Bangor City Council Monday night.Councilors voted to spend nearly $800,000 to get final site plans for the proposed Bangor arena.The planned arena would cost around 65 million dollars.A price tag that has some people worried that some of that expense will land on tax payers backs.Some citizens have rallied together in hopes of putting together a petition which would order a referendum allowing the citizens to vote on the matter.If a referendum did occur and voters put a halt to the arena plans, not all of the $800,000 voted to spend on Monday would be lost.For the referendum to go through, the petition would have to get over 2,200 signatures by January 14th.
