By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen at their May 24 meeting got their first look at a draft 2011-2012 budget that City Manager Mel Hawley said should mean no increase in the municipal portion of the city tax rate if they adopt it as proposed in the weeks to come.

And Vergennes homeowners might be looking at a lower tax rate overall.

The current municipal tax rate rounds to 60.3 cents. The city’s full 2011 residential rate including school taxes is $1.8895, and the non-residential rate is $1.9641.

BRISTOL — The Middlebury Union High School baseball team on Tuesday picked up both a rare win over rival Mount Abraham and a boost heading into next week’s Division II playoffs, 8-7 in Bristol.

The Tigers are just 3-11. But junior co-captain Marshall Hastings — a three-year starter at second base who drilled a two-run double, scored three runs and made a key defensive play — made a couple points about that record.

FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh Zoning Board of Adjustment will soon gather to rule on another Champlain Oil Co. application for a Route 7 gas station, convenience store and fast-food restaurant, but both town and company officials expect that decision simply to set up a return to state Environmental Court.
