Aldermen peg city's tax rate at 75 cents

Posted on July 6, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — As expected, the Vergennes City Council on June 30 increased the Vergennes municipal tax rate by 2.5 cents to 75 cents.

That increase will add $25 to city tax bills per $100,000 of assessed value. Aldermen had been targeting that number for months and in their recent meetings had made major cuts to a draft budget.

Aldermen also approved a 2015-2016 general fund budget of $2,121,912. That number is an increase of about $34,000, or 1.6 percent, over the 2014-2015 general fund budget of about $2.088 million.

Vermont Guard officials confirmed late last week that the 40th — which had been slated to be decommissioned and possibly made a detachment of the New Hampshire National Guard 39th Army Band — has been given an indefinite reprieve.

Rainy June bogs down farmers

Posted on July 6, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy

ADDISON COUNTY — According to the National Weather Service, June’s rainfall in Burlington of 8.67 inches proved to be the third highest since 1884, trailing only 1922 and 2013.

Nobody had to tell Vermont farmers that news.

“Every year we have our little times and issues with wet weather,” said Peter James, co-owner of Weybridge’s Monument Farms. “But this year it’s been the entire month of June.”

Heavy rain and clouds in June pose special problems for dairy farmers.

MIDDLEBURY — The Turning Point Center (TPC) of Addison County is seeking land or a building in which to relocate within the year. Free, would be nice.

 The nonprofit drug rehabilitation center learned recently it has until next August to vacate its rented space within Middlebury’s Marble Works complex, so they’re in the market for another benevolent, if not wholly supportive, landlord — preferably one who could donate space to them.
