ID-4 directors propose budget increase of 1/52%

Posted on February 1, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury voters on April 14 will consider a proposed Mary Hogan Elementary School budget of $5,771,990, representing a 1.52-percent increase in spending compared to this year.

The budget reflects no new programs, nor additional teaching staff. It actually represents a decrease of $87 in spending per pupil (from $13,539 to $13,452). That’s in large part because the school anticipates welcoming eight additional students next year, for a potential total of 395, according to Mary Hogan Elementary School Associate Principal Tom Buzzell.

Posted on January 25, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — A former Bristol resident is urging the state Legislature to pass a new law that would require property and casualty insurers to provide coverage for mold-related damage in homes.

At issue is bill S.229, introduced this year on behalf of Brenda Shores, who rented a basement apartment on Mountain Street in Bristol from 2006-2007. During her tenancy, she said mold took over the apartment, creeping into the walls and eventually into her clothing and furniture.
