“As soon as the architect first came out, I was over to the offices and signed up. I was here every single week to check and see how the progress was coming,” said Carlson.

Each recommendation was made after careful consideration at a two-and-a-half hour meeting, Haggett said.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — City Manager Mel Hawley introduced a draft budget to Vergennes aldermen at their May 8 meeting that could again allow them to keep level the portion of the city tax rate that funds municipal services.

The total of the proposed budget — not including fee-supported sewer spending — is $1,727,963, an increase of about $20,000.

Including $28,039 of charitable requests, the total grows to $1,756,002 and would increase by about $17,000 (because of a slight drop in those charitable requests).

ANwSU eyes bond to fund projects at high school

Posted on May 10, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Voters in the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns will almost certainly be asked in either November or March to support a $2 million Vergennes Union High School bond that could also, in theory, approach $5 million.

The $2 million, said ANwSU Superintendent Tom O’Brien and business manager Kathy Cannon earlier this week, would pay for a long list of what they called long-term building needs and “health and safety” items.
