Board seeks 4 percent spending hike for Vergennes Union Elementary

Posted on January 13, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union Elementary School board ended a budget workshop meeting last week eyeing a $4.26 million 2014-2015 budget that would increase spending by 4.34 percent, or $177,000.

However, almost all of that increase is driven by a state-mandated change in the way special education is accounted for within the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union schools and in higher special education costs overall, said ANwSU Superintendent Tom O’Brien and business manager Kathy Cannon.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The proposal to convert the former Vergennes nursing home at 1 Alden Place into a treatment center for troubled teen girls and young women has hit a major snag — a dispute between the property’s seller and its contracted buyer.

The sale of the former Briarwood Nursing Home to Valley Vista, which operates a 10-year-old, 80-bed substance-abuse treatment center in Bradford, is either off or on hold, according to versions offered by building owner John Laberge or Valley Vista co-owner Rick DiStefano.

Addison Central School budget draft reflects teacher cuts

WayneHowe8962.jpg

ADDISON — The Addison Central School board on Thursday moved closer to adopting a 2014-2015 budget that would not trigger a tax increase if residents support it in March, but would mean the loss of one full-time teacher and the school’s part-time math instructor.

Addison Northwest Supervisory Union business manager Kathy Cannon said the impact of that roughly $1.517 million spending plan on the town’s school tax rate would be a drop of about a half-cent.

solararray8745_0.jpg

VERGENNES — Workers earlier this week were putting the finishing touches on a double solar array near the Vergennes sewer plant that is projected to save the city $4,120 a year on its power bill.

About half of the nearly 500 solar panels are being placed on the plant’s lawn, and the rest sited on a knoll behind the nearby Vergennes-Panton Water District office.

The combined array is rated at 149 kilowatts and is expected to produce 200,000 kwh a year, all of which will be sent directly into the larger Green Mountain Power grid.
