Vergennes to consider local option taxes

Posted on October 16, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes City Council at its Tuesday meeting last week agreed to Mayor Michael Daniels’ suggestion to look at the idea of adopting local option taxes in the city.

Local option taxes piggyback on state sales-and-use or rooms-and-meals taxes by adding 1 percent for local revenue to either or both. Daniels said a study conducted a number of years ago, when the city briefly considered the idea, showed that such a tax could raise $100,000 a year for Vergennes.

Middlebury explores help for businesses; Aqua ViTea asks for tax break

Posted on October 12, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury’s efforts to re-boot its economic development efforts in town took a detour on Tuesday when the selectboard learned no one had stepped forward to join a new “Economic Health Committee.”

The board will instead ask participants on some of the town’s past business-promotion groups to serve on a panel that will specifically preside over the community’s new revolving loan fund and review Middlebury’s tax stabilization policy.

And the new task force will have to hit the ground running.

NEW HAVEN — Some community members are initiating conversations with local and state decision makers on how to make Addison County’s roads more friendly for cyclist and walker.

“I don’t think cars should necessarily be king of the road,” said New Haven resident Susan Smiley.

Smiley and fellow New Havenite Doug McKain undertook a survey on the walk- and bikability of New Haven’s roads. They took the idea of a survey to the selectboard last spring, got it green lighted, and recently presented the survey results to the board.

Sometimes life can get too serious. Just a week’s worth of national headlines these days is enough to wipe the smiles from our faces and leave us huddling under the blankets in bed. But that’s no way to go through life now, is it?

Laughter, smiles, comedy — they just might be the only way through the disasters of each day. Not only does laughing make us “friendlier, more resourceful, more attractive and more radiantly alive,” but it also has physical health benefits.

BRISTOL — “It’s always been just five women,” said Anne Majusiak of Bristol’s One World Library Project.
