Wells are drying up in three northern county towns

By Christopher Ross



ADDISON COUNTY — The drought that continues to plague northern Vermont has begun to affect Addison County.

Residents in Ferrisburgh, Monkton and Starksboro reported that their wells have run dry.

Penny Oosterman said her well in Ferrisburgh dried up about a month ago.

“I had just bought a brand-new washer and dryer. Then one day I ran a load of laundry and nothing but dirt water came into the washer. It gunked everything up,” she said.

There hasn’t been any water since.

Ferrisburgh hazmat event first of three in rural precincts

By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh and Panton residents will have a chance to dispose of hazardous household waste locally on May 19, instead of having to take the garbage to the Addison County Solid Waste Management District transfer station in Middlebury.

At some point the trash district also plans temporary drop-off stations to serve two groups of outlying towns; one hazardous household waste collection day will serve Lincoln, Starksboro and Monkton in the northeastern part of the county, and the other will serve Whiting, Goshen and Orwell on the southern end.

Posted on March 26, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — A 34.91-acre parcel in Ferrisbrugh next to Vergennes is formally back on the market, but its listing agent said it could be a tough sell due to a four-year-old Act 250 provision.

The Ferrisburgh selectboard on Tuesday last week signed a new agreement with real estate broker Duncan Harris of Burlington’s Kingsland Company to market the property for $375,000. That’s the same asking price that has attracted three buyers, none of whom has been able to close a deal, since 2011.

FERRISBURGH — Sand Road resident Lauren Fisher told the Ferrisburgh selectboard last week the barking is worse in the summer.

“It’s all hours of the day and night,” Fisher said. “It wakes us up at 2 a.m.”

Family friend Ziggy Comeau described how the smell hit her when she got out of her car in the Fishers’ driveway, a few yards away from a small ranch home that hosts up to 30 dogs.

“My eyes were burning,” Comeau said. “It was bad.”
