Posted on January 11, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — As Addison Northwest Supervisory Union elementary school boards wrestled with budget challenges last week, they also began considering whether to move voting on their proposed spending plans from Town Meeting Day to a later date.

That idea, first suggested by Vergennes Union High School board member Neil Kamman on Jan. 4, gained traction at Vergennes Union Elementary, Ferrisburgh Central and Addison Central school board meetings later last week, said ANwSU Superintendent JoAn Canning.

Addison Central School board to consider additions to budgets

Posted on January 11, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — Administrators presented two possible 2016-2017 spending plans to the Addison Central School board on Thursday, one that made few changes to school’s program and would raise spending by almost 5 percent to roughly $1.62 million, and one that cut spending about $36,000 to about $1.5 million.

Principal Matt DeBlois and Addison Northwest Supervisory Union administrators crafted that $1.5 million budget to avoid the Act 46 per-pupil spending threshold after which residents must pay a dollar-for-dollar penalty on their tax bills.

Opponents of the so-called “Addison Natural Gas Project” had requested that the regulator reconsider the Certificate of Public Good it had granted to Vermont Gas in December 2013 because the projected price of the pipeline had jumped 78 percent.

Vermont Governor Shumlin calls for divestment and job creation

By Anne Galloway VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — Gov. Peter Shumlin gave his sixth and final State of the State address to the Vermont Legislature on Thursday.

The uncharacteristically lengthy speech was a victory lap through memory lane, with a listing of accomplishments that lasted more than an hour. In the past, Shumlin, who has difficulty delivering long speeches because of his dyslexia, has kept his addresses short. This time, however, the governor spared no detail and appeared to be determined to defend his three terms in office.

FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh Central School board on Wednesday considered a budget for the 2016-2017 academic year that would cut $228,000 from the school’s current $3.587 million spending level. 

If adopted and approved by residents in March, cuts would include the school’s challenge and band programs, literacy intervention specialist, and part-time technology instructor, according to Addison Northwest Supervisory Union Superintendent JoAn Canning on Thursday.
