Ferrisburgh Central board offers $39K cut in new proposal

Posted on April 30, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh residents on Tuesday will decide the fate of a second Ferrisburgh Central School budget proposal, one that will increase spending over the current level by 1.94 percent.

The FCS board’s new proposal calls for spending of about $3.581 million for the 2015-2016 school year. The board in March made adjustments that netted about $39,000 of spending reductions in adopting its second spending plan.

The $3.62 million spending plan that lost on Town Meeting Day, 302-267, would have increased FCS spending by about 3 percent.

FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard voted on April 7 to pursue a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant that could help the town market the 34.91-acre parcel Ferrisburgh owns at the intersection at Routes 7 and 22A.

Acting on the suggestion of resident Tim Davis, who offered to serve as the grant manager, Ferrisburgh will apply for a $50,000 USDA Rural Development Grant that would fund a study to determine whether an agricultural incubator space, also called a food hub, could be successful on the property.

ferrisburghTownShed5595.jpg

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh road foreman John Bull now projects, after this winter’s harsh weather, that the town’s new highway garage will be ready in mid-May.

Residents approved in December of 2013 an $850,000 bond to pay for most of the $1.05 million, 5,940-square-foot, six-bay Ferrisburgh garage.

 Initially, plans called for a fall completion date, but after typical delays in design and construction, Bull said earlier this week it was best to slow things down during this past untypical winter.

Ferrisburgh Central School board makes reductions in new budget

Posted on March 16, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh residents will look at a lower Ferrisburgh Central School budget for a revote that will be timed to coincide with the Vergennes Union High School budget revote. The VUHS board last week eyed April 14 as a vote date.

On this past Thursday, the Ferrisburgh Central School (FCS) board approved a new spending plan of about $3.581 million, $39,113 less than the $3.62 million plan defeated on Town Meeting Day, 302-267. The FCS budget revote date will be set once the VUHS budget revote is set — likely this week.
