Local real estate market showing mixed signals

Posted on January 5, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — The good news, according to local appraisers, is that unlike many areas of the nation the bottom has not fallen out of the Addison County real estate market in the past three or four years.

The bad news? Well, just because the county is not as poorly off as say, overbuilt foreclosure centers like Nevada or Florida does not mean the market is booming.

Ferrisburgh appraiser Charlene Stavenow said sales indicate that prices in most segments are no more than holding their own.

VERGENNES — At the suggestion of two residents who sit on other city boards, Vergennes aldermen on Dec. 20 agreed to consider at a future meeting adopting a formal conflict of interest policy. 

The recommendation came from school board member Cheryl Brinkman and planner Alex McGuire, who asked aldermen to either consider adopting a conflict of interest policy or ordinance, or give residents the option of adopting one on Town Meeting Day.

Vergennes will vote on higher petition threshold

Posted on December 29, 2011 |

VERGENNES — After a spirited discussion about local democracy, on Dec. 20 Vergennes aldermen agreed to put a measure on the March ballot that, if approved by city residents, would increase the threshold needed by petitioners to force a citywide revote from 5 to 10 percent.

That compromise move came after a proposal by residents Cheryl Brinkman and Alex McGuire requesting the council place an article on the ballot to raise the petition bar to 20 percent.

Opera house backers seek city funding

VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen are considering a request from Friends of the Vergennes Opera House (FVOH) President Allison Rimmer that the City Hall theater receive $15,000 of ongoing annual city support in response to budget woes brought on by the recession.

Rimmer told aldermen on Dec. 20 that the FVOH will also approach the selectboards in Ferrisburgh, Addison, Panton and Waltham for financial help, much as Bixby Library officials have done — and with much the same rationale.

Clippings: Ambition can be for greater good

Posted on December 29, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



2011 probably won’t go down as a banner year here or worldwide.

Water provided many memories, and not many of them pleasant. One of 2011’s first images that seared itself on my consciousness came from msnbc.com. I logged on one morning and was stunned to see for the first time a picture of Japan’s east coast after the devastating tsunami.

A later image that lingers is the video of Bartonsville’s covered bridge collapsing into Irene’s surging waters.

In between fell spring’s seemingly unceasing rain.

FERRISBURGH — Only a pending delivery and the remote possibility of warm weather remain as hurdles for a planned skating rink next to Ferrisburgh Central School.

Given that it is late December and rink organizer Tim Bicknell said a needed plastic liner should arrive any day, residents from Ferrisburgh and neighboring towns with any luck should be able to lace up their skates for the town’s newest recreation option sometime next week.
