Vergennes dealing with three issues

Posted on February 15, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — In Vergennes, City Manager Mel Hawley said officials want to tie up three loose ends before school property is transferred to a new unified union under one-board control, something that would happen on July 1, 2017, if Addison Northwest Supervisory Union unification passes on March 1.

One loose end Hawley recently uncovered while researching deeds. The city’s Green Street fire station was once the Vergennes High School gym, and the city bought it for that purpose from the former Vergennes ID School District per a 1957 citywide vote.

Group wants Vermont Legislature to reform state's alimony law

Posted on February 15, 2016 |
By Mike Faher of Vt. Digger



BRATTLEBORO — In 2011, after years of work, the Massachusetts Legislature approved a major overhaul of the state’s alimony law. There was not a single dissenting vote, “and it’s very rare that happens,” said Steve Hitner, the man who led the effort.

Now, a group led by Brattleboro businessman Rick Fleming is attempting to use that model to revamp the Vermont law that regulates — or, the group contends, fails to regulate — the ways in which men and women are ordered to compensate their ex-spouses.
