ANwSU board members get initial look at unification law

Posted on June 29, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Many members of the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union boards and several residents of the five district towns gathered at Vergennes Union High School on Wednesday to hear a review of school governance and unification provisions in a new Vermont law — and how quickly ANwSU might have to take action.

Act 46 creates incentives for school districts to unify their governance structures. ANwSU has tried to unify in three separate years and voted in favor of unification in 2010 and 2011, only to see petitioned re-votes reverse the outcomes.

ANwSU starts moving into new offices

Posted on June 29, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union employees were packing boxes and lugging office furniture and equipment from Green Street up Main Street late last week as they were completing the district’s long-awaited move to new office space in the Kennedy Brothers building.

ANwSU officials had signed a lease to move from the Cornerstone Building on Green Street in June 2014, a move that will save the district $11,800 a year for comparably sized space in Kennedy Brothers.

Surplus to help city council control taxes

Posted on June 25, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — As they moved on Tuesday toward a 2.5-cent increase in the city’s municipal tax rate, Vergennes aldermen received good news from City Manager Mel Hawley — the city’s year-end fund balance will be larger than he first expected.

Hawley said some numbers could still move a little bit, but he told aldermen the fund balance — the cash carry-over from the city’s fiscal year, which will end on June 30 — would be enough to allow aldermen to use it to keep the tax rate in check.

City sewer overflow seen as costly issue

Posted on June 25, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Aldermen mulled over the municipal budget at the Vergennes City Council meeting Tuesday (see story on Page 1A), and also discussed the latest overflow of the city’s sewer system into Otter Creek.

City Manager Mel Hawley once again said that water infiltration from older clay sewer lines (both city-owned and privately owned), roof drains and sump pumps — as well as heavy rains — pose major problems, and that pinning down the sources must be done per a long-standing state order before a major fix can be made.

Paving of Main Street in Vergennes limits parking

Posted on June 22, 2015 |
By Addison Independent



VERGENNES — Parking on Main Street in Vergennes will be severely curtailed for a couple days next week as the city undertakes a major paving project.

Vergennes Police Chief George Merkel said that there will be no parking on Main Street between East Street and the Otter Creek Bridge from the evening of Monday, June 22, until the morning of Thursday, June 25.

City officials are hoping that they will be able to keep two lanes of traffic open during the paving process, but that won’t leave room for parking.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — A fire on the afternoon of Friday, June 12, destroyed the Meigs Road home of a family of four, including a Vergennes Union High School senior who graduated hours later.

Vergennes Deputy Fire Chief Matt Fraley said city firefighters were alerted just before 1 p.m., arrived on the scene minutes later with three trucks, and discovered the single-story manufactured home was already beyond saving.

“It was pretty much fully involved when we got there,” Fraley said.

VERGENNES — When the 87 members of the Vergennes Union High School Class of 2015 marched from opposite sides of the VUHS gym on June 12 and met in the middle before turning toward the stage, all, for the first time in the school’s 65-year history, wore blue.

In a vote organized by the VUHS administration, the class earlier this spring voted overwhelmingly to overturn the school’s tradition of white graduation robes for girls and blue robes for boys.

Vergennes considers slight rise in property tax rate

Posted on June 15, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen at their June 9 meeting reached consensus on a 75-cent municipal tax rate, a decision that, if made final by their June 30 deadline to set the city’s 2015-2016 budget and tax rate, would mean a 2.5-cent property tax increase.

Mayor Bill Benton said discussion focused more on what would be fair to ask of residents than on specifics of the draft budget presented by City Manager Mel Hawley.
