Vergennes Union High School board seeks to draft new budget

Posted on March 13, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School board on Monday began the process of drafting a new budget for the school after voters in the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns rejected the original spending plan on Town Meeting Day.

Comments by VUHS board members and ANwSU officials there and afterward showed some differences on how much and even whether to cut the budget, including the need for staff reductions.

VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union voters said no on Tuesday to a $9.73 million dollar Vergennes Union High School budget proposal, 961-747.

If the budget had passed, it would have increased spending by about 2.4 percent.

But the VUHS budget’s tax impact was projected to be more dramatic, thanks to the school’s declining enrollment and a projected budget deficit of almost $548,000 that ANwSU officials said was due to unexpected special education costs.

Opinion: Warden earns voter endorsement

Posted on March 3, 2014 |
By Terry B. Silva



I am writing to endorse Gloria Warden’s write-in candidacy for the offices of Town Clerk and Treasurer for the Town of Ferrisburgh.

Gloria began her career in town government more than 20 years ago, when she was hired in 1988 to do the bookkeeping/treasurer’s work for Charlotte when the town clerk was appointed to the Vermont Legislature to fill the remainder of her deceased husband’s term of office. Gloria has been doing fantastic work for the town ever since.
