Brandon voters OK Neshobe School budget on second try

Posted on April 28, 2014 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — Voters OK’d a revised Neshobe Elementary School budget in an April 22 re-vote, by a tally of 458-276.

Around 60 percent of those who showed up at the polls this past Tuesday favored the spending plan, which was defeated March 4 (638-576); but only a little more than half as many people cast ballots compared with the Town Meeting Day election.

The $5,321,670 spending plan contained a 1.36 percent increase in expenditures over the current budget and will raise the local school tax rate by 1 cent, from $0.69 to $0.70.

By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — Recycled Reading of Vermont is moving to a larger space in Bristol’s downtown, and will expand its operation.

The store, which sells used books, CDs, DVDs and musical instruments, isn’t moving far — in fact, the new space is just across the street from its current location at 25 Main Street. The store will occupy the space that used to house Better Planet.

Owner Melissa Hernandez, who opened the store in 2011, said things were starting to feel crowded in her shop, so she went looking for a new home for her business.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes City Council on April 22 heard good budget news from City Manager Mel Hawley on two fronts, annual spending and the city’s new police station.

Hawley said despite what he called a rough winter, Vergennes Public Works Department spending is under budget — even its $50,000 line item for sand and salt, which has $9,000 remaining.
