ADDISON — Addison saw three contested races on Tuesday, one in which a long-term incumbent was unseated and two of which revolved around school issues that have been much debated in the town in the past year.

Obama move could boost state's health care efforts

By Andrew Stein



 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — One of the major blockades to Vermont single-payer health care reform fell last week when President Obama endorsed a bill by the Vermont Congressional delegation to alter the waiver date in the federal Affordable Care Act.

Posted on March 3, 2011 |
By John Flowers



 

MIDDLEBURY — The Addison Central Supervisory Union (ACSU) executive committee will focus on hiring an interim superintendent rather than launch an immediate search for a full-time replacement for current superintendent Lee Sease.

By Andrea Suozzo



 

NEW HAVEN — On Monday evening at Town Meeting nearly 100 New Haven residents filled the town hall to discuss, among other things, the new town plan.

While the town plan passed by a margin of 274 to 140 by paper ballot the following day, residents at the meeting brought up a number of qualms concerning zoning and development along Route 7 and town officials stressed that the discussions are not over.

ADDISON — The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) has agreed to give Flatiron Construction a 65-day schedule adjustment in which to complete the new Champlain Bridge in view of harsh winter weather and underwater debris that have hampered work progress.

Posted on February 28, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



 

ADDISON — Addison planners on Feb. 21 agreed to recommend to selectmen that changes to town zoning made last summer be reversed, at least until the planning commission goes over them again and warns them publicly.
