Aldermen eye economic group

Posted on May 17, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — In an annual goal-setting session at last week’s Vergennes city council meeting, Alderman David Austin suggested that the city look to form an economic development committee that could work to improve the area’s business climate and offer support and information to potential new ventures.

“I think we really need a local economic development committee,” said Austin, a Main Street business and property owner. “I continue to believe there is economic opportunity here in Vergennes.”

Business looks good for Goodrich

By Andy Kirkaldy



CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Goodrich Corp., which has a branch on Panton Road in Vergennes that is the city’s largest employer, in late April announced solid first-quarter results and a generally — if still cautiously — optimistic forecast for the balance of 2010.

The local plant, according to a corporate spokesman last month, is seeing an up-tick in business, and was seeking to fill 30 jobs, which he described as for “technicians and professional positions.”

Vergennes residents consider finances, educational equity

VERGENNES — Few foes of proposed one-board Addison Northwest Supervisory Union governance spoke out at a Tuesday forum held at Vergennes Union Elementary School in advance of the May 11 revote on unification.

But school board officials acknowledged fears about a potential increase in the city’s tax rate and the assumption of debt from Ferrisburgh that prompted petitioners in Vergennes to ask for a new vote.

Sheriff's deputy to be honored 78 years after his death

VERGENNES — The mortal remains of John Collette have been buried beneath a simple headstone in St. Peter’s Cemetery in Vergennes since soon after his death of a heart attack at age 46 on July 17, 1932.

But a fortuitous discovery by an amateur historian is allowing Vermonters to learn the rest of Collette’s story, a story that will allow him to have his name posthumously etched on a far more elaborate monument — the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Horse-drawn peddler coming to Vergennes

Posted on April 29, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Downtown Vergennes will have a turn-of-the-century look — at least once or twice a week — this summer: Aldermen approved on Tuesday an application that will allow a local farmer to set up a horse-drawn vending wagon next to the city green.

Erik Andrus, owner of Ferrisburgh’s Good Companion Bakery, plans to hitch a four-foot-by-seven-foot wagon to a draft horse and drive the rig from his farm — which is about a half-mile east of Route 7 on Burroughs Farm Road — into Vergennes. That plan earned unanimous backing on Tuesday.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Tuesday voted unanimously to sign the deed that will give the city ownership of 11.22 acres of land near Vergennes Union High School, land that houses the city’s recreation facilities, including the Vergennes pool.

The land had been owned by the Vergennes ID school board, and the pool had been maintained by a volunteer committee. The city is now taking over that task and has been planning to do so in recent months.

VERGENNES — Vergennes officials said it was with unusual regret that they accepted the April 13 resignation of Neil Curtis from the city’s planning commission after almost seven years of service, the past three-and-a-half as its chairman.

Curtis, 42, oversaw the first full rewrite of the Vergennes city plan in decades, an effort that consumed most of his tenure, and also served those seven years on the Vergennes Development Review Board.
