BANGOR, Maine — The University of Maine System will cut 157 positions across its seven campuses and central office and dip deep into its rainy day fund if a budget plan it released Tuesday is passed by the system’s board of trustees next month.

The proposed budget features eight fewer positions lost than what system Chancellor James Page warned could be cut in March when he addressed the state Legislature.

The proposed budget was posted to the system’s website on Tuesday and will be reviewed and considered by the trustees’ Finance, Facilities and Technology Committee on Monday. The entire board will vote on the budget at a May 18-19 meeting.
