Posted on August 22, 2016 |

VERGENNES — Adding a second porch door, higher porch railings and stairs from that porch down toward a rear parking lot might at first not seem like that big a deal for the Bixby Memorial Free Library.

But those simple changes to the porch at the 104-year-old Vergennes landmark’s west end, along with the planned addition of push bars to the library’s front doors, serve a key purpose: They are key fire-safety upgrades that increase the Bixby’s legal capacity from 50 people to 200.

VERGENNES — While Bixby Memorial Free Library officials and patrons last week celebrated recent work that allows more people to enter the city landmark at the same time (see related story), the library board members are also amid a months-long process that will help them decide how the Bixby will use its new capacity.

By the end of the year, Bixby officials intend to have in place a new strategic plan that should cover at least the next three years.

VergFallsBldg3349.jpg

VERGENNES — The owner of Grist Mill Island in the Vergennes falls is proposing to add five apartments to the two buildings on the island, for a total of nine overlooking Otter Creek.  

Three of the apartments would replace office space in the Grist Mill itself and two would be carved out of a now empty horse barn.

The June proposal followed the Vergennes Development Review Board’s May rejection of a 10-apartment plan submitted by Mahaiwe LLC, of which major city property owner and Ferrisburgh resident David Shlansky is listed as the manager.

VERGENNES — Because of a change made late in this past legislative session, residential school tax rates in four of five Addison Northwest Unified Union School District (ANwSD) communities will be between about 2.76 and 3.56 cents higher than ANwSD officials’ good-faith estimates.

Overall Vergennes tax hike seen at 13 cents

Posted on June 30, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes City Council on Tuesday used some creative accounting and a new, larger projected fund balance to hold the 2016-2017 increase in the municipal portion of the city tax rate to 4 cents, while adopting a $2.23 million general fund budget. 

The new municipal tax rate will be 79 cents, up from 75 cents in Vergennes’ 2015-2016 fiscal year that ends on June 30.

The municipal tax rate increase of about 5.3 percent will translate to an additional $80 a year in taxes on a $200,000 home.
