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.

ADDISON COUNTY — Youth was served this year in Addison County, at least on the local high school softball teams.

Although all four teams had fine senior athletes, underclass students played prominent roles on the Middlebury, Mount Abraham, Vergennes and Otter Valley squads — seven of the 10 picks for the 2015 Addison Independent Softball All-Star Team were juniors, sophomores and, in one case, a freshman.

Posted on June 22, 2015 |
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.

MONTPELIER — Revisions passed this spring to the Vermont law governing renewable energy generation in the state included some changes in the process used to site solar arrays in Vermont towns, including establishing statewide setback requirements, allowing towns to insist that local landscape screening laws apply, and creating a task force to evaluate the process.
