ADDISON COUNTY — Most property owners in the five-town area are seeing higher tax bills than last year.

Selectboards in Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton, New Haven and Starksboro set municipal tax rates in the past month or so to pay for town staffing obligations and highway spending.

Town leaders have also received final homestead and non-residential school tax rates from the state, allowing towns to send out 2014-2015 tax bills. Each of the five towns are served by the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union.

MONKTON — After more than two years on hiatus, Monkton First Response is back in business.

The organization, founded in 1976 to provide emergency medical care to the northern Addison County town, lost its certification in 2011 due to dwindling membership. This year, Bob and Kelly Howard resurrected the rescue squad and in January began serving the town of 2,000 people.

“We started running again around Jan. 1,” Bob Howard said.
