Posted on December 19, 2013 |
By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — The Bristol Planning Commission on Tuesday took a look at the final two proposed sites for a new firehouse and determined that one aligns with the town plan and the other does not.

Commissioners voted for the West Street site, and against the North Street site.

The group was not comparing the two sites against each other, but rather evaluating each individually according to their adherence to the Bristol Town Plan. Only the selectboard has the power to choose a site.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Tuesday agreed to an early release of $2,500 in city funding for the Vergennes Partnership, the private organization charged with overseeing the health of the city’s downtown.

GOSHEN — Innkeeper Tony Clark, one of the pioneers of cross-country skiing in Vermont, has seen the handwriting on the snow. Or rather, lack of snow.
