§6208. Municipal approval








1. Approval. 
Approval by the elected municipal officials is required when more than 1% of a municipality's
state valuation is considered for acquisition under a bond issue.

2. Transactions. 
Any acquisition by eminent domain funded by the board, when the land exceeds either
50 acres or $100,000 in assessed value, is subject to the approval of the municipality
in which the land is located. That approval may be obtained either from the elected
municipal officials or, if those officials do not approve, by vote of the town meeting
or by referendum of the electorate. If the land involved is located within the unorganized
territory, this requirement does not apply.
