MONKTON — The wildlife tunnels that construction workers this week are beginning to build under Vergennes-Monkton Road are not your typical Vermont Agency of Transportation culvert project.

The low-slung tunnels will enable amphibians to migrate between their habitat in Huizenga Swamp and in the forests of Hogback Mountain without the life-threatening danger of crossing the busy highway.

MakersFaire3081.jpg

MONKTON — Fifth-grader George Collette’s entreaty to come see the science experiment waiting outside the Monkton Central School gymnasium this past Thursday afternoon was hard to turn down.

“Have you ever seen a marshmallow fly?” he asked.

Outside on the pavement, he and his team scrambled to ready their contraption. Using a bicycle pump, a length of PVC tubing and lots of tape, they used air pressure from the pump to launch marshmallows, as well as their favorite projectiles — wadded tissues soaked in water.

Monkton Central board warns school budget revote

Posted on April 6, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



MONKTON — The Monkton Central School board on Thursday evening warned for voter consideration a new spending proposal that shifts resources within the school without increasing the size of the budget.

The sum of the proposal, around $2.82 million, is $200 less than the version voters rejected on Town Meeting Day by a tally of 231 to 178.

If passed, the budget would represent a 9.3 percent spending increase over the present fiscal year. The new vote will be Tuesday, April 14.

Monkton opts to move town meeting; keeps voice votes

Posted on March 5, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



MONKTON — Monkton residents took a stand for what they called the town’s democratic traditions in two ways: one, by moving the date of their town meeting in hopes of drawing more people; and two, by voting down two articles that would have changed the method of deciding several articles from voice vote to Australian ballot.

A proposed article on this year’s warning would have moved the date and time of the annual meeting from 10 a.m. on Town Meeting Day, to 7 p.m. the evening before.
