Posted on September 13, 2018 |

FERRISBURGH — The owner of Vergennes modular and mobile home dealership Town & Country Homes Inc. has a town permit and is seeking an Act 250 permit amendment that would allow him to move his sales and display office to Route 7 in Ferrisburgh, just north of Vergennes.

FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard discussed last week a possible sale or lease of the town-owned 34.91-acre parcel at the junction of Routes 7 and 22A to the Addison County Solid Waste Management District (ACSWMD).

ACSWMD officials have said they might be interested in the prominent parcel outside of Vergennes as a recycling center/trash drop-off, in part to replace Vergennes recycling center, which will probably close at the end of 2018. That possible closure would not necessarily affect private trash and recycling haulers.
