Vermont minimum wage is up 14 cents in 2013

Posted on January 7, 2013 |
By Associated Press



MONTPELIER (AP) — Vermont’s minimum wage went up 14 cents an hour, effective New Year’s Day, to $8.60 per hour.

That’s according to a state law that says the wage will go up each year by either 5 percent or an amount that matches the Consumer Price Index, whichever is less.

The minimum wage for workers in places like hotels and restaurants, who rely on tips for a significant part of their income, went from $4.10 to $4.17.

Such increases often trigger raises for workers making just above the minimum wage, as well.

ADDISON — The Addison Central School board will meet on Tuesday and could then adopt a budget proposal for the 2013-2014 school year that would drop spending over current levels by almost 4 percent.

If board members adopt the draft now before them, they would be cutting about $66,600 from the current $1.68 million budget to arrive at spending of roughly $1.61 million. The final budget proposal will need to be approved by voters.

Ferrisburgh officals lukewarm to land lease for solar

Posted on January 3, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The town of Ferrisburgh was presented in November an offer to lease about 3.5 acres of its 34.9-acre parcel next to Vergennes, an offer that according to the company making it could be worth about a half-million dollars over its 20-year term.

But the selectboard has yet to carefully study whether that claim is accurate or enter into serious negotiations with Encore Redevelopment, the Burlington firm proposing to lease the land and put a solar panel array on it that would produce 700,000 kilowatts a year.

VERGENNES — It was only a couple of months ago that Dave Huntley was jobless, homeless and living out of his car.

“I’d been working on a farm in Barton,” Huntley said during a recent interview at the John W. Graham Emergency Shelter in Vergennes, where he eventually landed. “There weren’t too many farm jobs out there.”

But thanks to the efforts of the shelter, other area nonprofits and a Vergennes landlord, Huntley is a now a rent-paying tenant at a local residence.
