By Addison Independent



BRANDON — It’s time to move on. That seems to be the message from Brandon voters, as every article on the Town Meeting Day ballot was approved this week.

The Brandon selectboard warned a “no-frills” budget that represents a 2 percent, or $47,000, increase in the amount to be raised by taxes. The approved $2,906,075 spending plan calls for $2,425,370 to be raised by taxes — a 1.7 percent increase. Voters bought it, passing the budget, 609-418.

Town Meeting Wrap 2015: Addison

By Addison Independent



ADDISON — If Town Meeting Day polling is any indication, voters in Addison were willing to open up their wallets for most items on the school and municipal warnings — except for the Vergennes Union High School’s general operating budget. As in the other five towns that feed VUHS, Addison voters on Tuesday rejected the proposed $10.47 million high school spending plan; in Addison the tally was 140 no, 123 yes.

Residents did, however, approve the level-funded Addison Central School spending plan of $1,543,138; the vote was 166 yes, 98 no.

Vergennes to host city-wide yard sale

Posted on March 2, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — About 5,000 visitors come to Brandon for its annual community-wide yard sale, an event coordinated by that town’s chamber of commerce, which in turn reaps close to $1,000 for promoting and organizing the day.

That success caught the attention of downtown Vergennes merchant Linda Cook, owner of Linda’s Apparel and Gifts on Main Street.

Cook brought the idea of trying to duplicate those results to someone who knows the idea works in Brandon: new Addison County of Chamber Executive Director Susan Hoxie, who is a Brandon resident.
