Opinion: Panton deserves better

Posted on February 28, 2019 |
By J. Douglas Dows



Last fall when the Panton selectboard attempted to lower the tax rate by using funds that had been previously allocated for other expenses (the mistake was discovered by a town auditor), the chair of the selectboard attributed the mistake to an erroneous spreadsheet produced by the Town Clerk/Treasurer. That was a lie. To date the chair, Howard Hall, has yet to publicly apologize to the Town Clerk/Treasurer.

Panton town hall cupola choice in budget

Posted on February 14, 2019 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON — Panton residents face a March 5 choice about their town hall, one that is embedded within the proposed town budget.

The budget, which for the first time ever cannot be amended from the floor of Panton Town Meeting, includes a line item for an annual $4,140 payment for an aluminum cupola, not a more expensive wooden cupola that some residents have favored at past town meetings.

The budget also cuts last year’s $38,775 line item for the Town Hall Restoration Fund back to $15,000.

Panton town hall cupola, kitchen debated

Posted on October 18, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON — Seven months after residents at a contentious Panton Town Meeting backed spending money to repair and upgrade Panton Town Hall, much new work has been done, including a new handicap access ramp to the main meeting space and new accessible bathrooms to serve that space.  

But two projects residents also backed, a public kitchen in that space and a replacement for the wooden cupola removed seven years ago, remain in limbo.

Panton to get new tax bills after mistake

Posted on October 4, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON — An accounting error made in Panton Town Hall that slipped past the Panton selectboard when the board adopted its tax rate resulted in the town in August sending out incorrect tax bills. Town officials confirmed on Wednesday those bills were based on a rate about 13 cents lower than it should have been.

Now they are asking Panton’s 320 taxpayers not to pay their tax bills until new ones arrive, probably early next week. The bills for Panton’s annual taxes will also have a new due date for the first installment, Nov. 9 instead of Nov. 1.
