Posted on June 24, 2016 |
By Anya Schwartz



Years ago, when “Take Back Vermont” signs popped up in the wake of the civil unions struggle in Vermont, and vitriolic letters appeared daily in the Burlington Free Presshating on gays and lesbians, I experienced how my home in Vermont could suddenly feel unsafe, and how neighbors I once thought of as accepting of me might actually wish that I — and every other lesbian, gay, or bi person in Vermont — would disappear.

 Landfills will no longer accept yard debris as of July 1. Haulers must offer residents and businesses curbside collection for leaves, brush and clean wood every fall and spring, a service for which haulers may charge. Customers should contact haulers for pricing information.

Posted on June 23, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Police spending — especially $110,000 for two new cruisers — dominated a Tuesday Vergennes City Council meeting devoted to the next city budget and municipal tax rate, both of which must be adopted by July 1.
