Posted on May 9, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union voters on Tuesday will decide whether to support a proposal put forth by the Vergennes Union High School board for a five-year, $600,000 loan to put a new roof on the school’s leaky classroom wing and auditorium.

If voters back the $600,000 loan, payments would add about $10 of annual taxes per $100,000 of assessed home value, according to an estimate offered in April by ANwSU business manager Kathy Cannon. Those who are eligible for prebates would not pay the full amount of that increase.
