Two decades on, farmers weigh organic standards

Posted on September 16, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



ADDISON COUNTY — Since the passage 20 years ago this week of the 1990 Farm Bill, which established a National Organic Program (NOP), the demand for healthy, sustainably produced food has skyrocketed — and with it, the demand for organically certified products.

Consumers nowadays — especially those in cities — don’t always know how or where their food was produced, so organic certifications give them more information to use when making purchasing decisions, said Vermont Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy while marking the anniversary this week.

Debate over police HQ in Howden Hall unresolved

Posted on September 16, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



BRISTOL — Concerned members of the Bristol Historical Society and their supporters appealed to the Bristol selectboard at the Monday meeting to change its decision to move the police department’s offices into the basement and west wing of Howden Hall.

The decision to move the police, now in temporary housing, will result in the loss of a public meeting space in Howden Hall and the historical society will not be able to expand its museum in the historic West Street building, historical society vice president Gerald Heffernan told the board.

Water vote petition is rejected

Posted on September 16, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Randy Ouellette, a Vergennes alderman acting as a private citizen, believed on Aug. 31 that he had successfully petitioned for reconsideration of the Aug. 4 vote that backed a $5.1 million bond to pay for Vergennes-Panton Water District plant renovations.

But Ouellette this week learned that his petition had fallen into what one official in the Vermont Secretary of State’s office called “a gray area where municipal attorneys could disagree.” On Monday, he received a letter from the water district board informing him his petition lacked enough signatures to force a revote.

By Tamara Hilmes



BRISTOL — The Bristol selectboard is moving forward with plans for repair of the South Street Bridge, which was closed a little over a month ago due to safety concerns. Out of the three proposed options, the board at a meeting Monday evening decided to go with the first, and most expedient, option.

MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County Humane Society (ACHS) is seeking to renovate and expand its Middlebury headquarters at 236 Boardman St. in order to better serve the area’s homeless animals and enhance their prospects for adoption.

• Replacement of a combined total of roughly 1,500 square feet of exterior sheds and outbuildings with a new 2,800-square-foot barn.

• Renovation of the existing 2,700-square-foot main building, erected around two decades ago.

Ferrisburgh puts land on market

Posted on September 16, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The town of Ferrisburgh has placed on the market the 35-acre parcel it owns at the junction of Routes 7 and 22A, just outside Vergennes, with an asking price of $375,000.

The price might have been higher for an open site with permitted wastewater capacity, level topography, high traffic volume, easy access to rail transportation and frontage on two of the state’s busiest highways.

But despite those pluses the land, zoned industrial with retail uses conditionally permitted, does come with some baggage for potential buyers.
