Posted on June 26, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy

FERRISBURGH — After a June 20 closed-door meeting with the Ferrisburgh selectboard, town attorney Jim Carroll told about 20 residents that he would be working to reach a settlement with the Vorsteveld Farm for cutting down about 1,900 trees and shrubs in the town right of way this spring along a three-quarter-mile stretch of Arnold Bay Road.

So, how did that happen?
