Level city spending proposed

Posted on May 14, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — City Manager Mel Hawley introduced a draft budget to Vergennes aldermen at their May 8 meeting that could again allow them to keep level the portion of the city tax rate that funds municipal services.

The total of the proposed budget — not including fee-supported sewer spending — is $1,727,963, an increase of about $20,000.

Including $28,039 of charitable requests, the total grows to $1,756,002 and would increase by about $17,000 (because of a slight drop in those charitable requests).

Middlebury uncovers $1.5 M surplus

Posted on January 26, 2012 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury officials have grown accustomed to looking under rocks and cushions for even the most minute revenues to soften the property tax impact of the annual municipal budget.

On Tuesday, officials discovered a pile of cash — approximately $1.5 million — in surplus funds that will in the short-term assure no rise in the municipal tax rate while unleashing an interesting debate among town residents on how the financial windfall should be allocated in the long-term.

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh selectmen on Tuesday approved a roughly $1.619 million town budget for fiscal year 2013, but on Town Meeting Day Ferrisburgh voters will have the option of adding up to $79,000 to that bottom line.

The selectboard’s spending proposal does not include about $29,000 of charitable donations that Ferrisburgh residents typically back in March, plus two articles that would create capital funds: $30,000 for the town’s fire department and $30,000 for the public works department.

Voters reaffirm support for $3 million of highway work

Posted on April 14, 2011 |
By John Flowers



 

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury voters on Tuesday voted 75 to 17 in favor of affirming a $3 million bond issue to finance various road improvement projects throughout town.

The second Australian ballot vote was needed to affirm a Town Meeting Day vote of 467 to 158 in favor of the bond. That initial vote was improperly warned and therefore had to be ratified.

The proposed 20-year, $3 million bond issue is to take care of 17 different road improvement projects that might otherwise linger on the drawing board.
