VERGENNES — It was just a routine call to Vergennes police on a Monday morning, in this case Nov. 30, 2015, made by an employee of the Monkton Road branch of Merchants Bank — there were suspicious people outside the bank in a car.

But because that call was made and because police followed up, 10 days later U.S. marshals arrested a New Jersey man, Arun Aftab, 33, on a federal felony weapons charge.

Pump fix could curb city sewer overflows

Posted on April 18, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — A fairly simple fix to one of the two pumps at the Macdonough Drive pump station could help Vergennes solve at least some of the chronic overflow problem that has plagued its municipal sewer system, City Manager Mel Hawley told the city council at its Tuesday meeting.

Hawley said sewer workers have discovered that modern products advertised as flushable don’t always dissolve properly in the system, and those items — he called them “rags” at the meeting — tend to clog the pumps.

Carnivale 2016 was a hit in so many ways

Posted on March 31, 2016 |
By Addison Independent



Carnevale Vergennes 1.jpeg

The third annual Carnevale Vergennes, held in the Vergennes Opera House on Saturday, March 5, was an amazing success. When we started this event in 2014 we hoped to raise important operational funds for two nonprofits, the Vergennes Opera House and the Vergennes Partnership. That first event raised $6,000, which was shared between the two groups.

In 2015, last year, we doubled that amount, raising $12,000, allowing for the same two organizations to receive $6,000 each.
