I'll have to watch the city's Finance Committee video in the coming Wednesday.  If it gets approved, this info will be added to the Wiki.

Also, your photo of 0321 will not be used in a fleet page as I found out it's vertically long.  A cropped shot of it will be acceptable.

This here is the city council meeting from September 11th and it mentions the community Connector in bangor Maine and in the council minutes that states that the city council has approved to piggy back off the state of Connecticut transit bus order to purchase 5 Brand new Gillig 29’ Diesel Buses
And the bus superintendent of the community Connector will be putting in the purchase order 

The next order of buses will be replacing the 5 2002 Orion V 30’ Buses that the Community Connector got in 2012 From the Westchester County Beeline system

heres a link to the city council meeting

Even though you cropped the photo, it turned out to be of low quality, which is the reason I didn't bother uploading it.
