Voters reject both parts of VUHS multiple choice budget proposal

Posted on May 7, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union voters on Tuesday sent two VUHS budget articles down to defeat for the second time in 2015, one by a close margin and one by a landslide.

A $10.31 million proposal to fund the high school, and which cut $156,000 from the budget defeated on Town Meeting Day, lost 722-676 or 51.6-48.4 percent.

A second article, one that could have only taken effect if the first article had passed, would have added that $156,000 back into VUHS spending. It failed by 843-556, or 60-40 percent.

Ferrisburgh backs Central School spending plan on second try

Posted on May 7, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — In a second 2015 vote on a Ferrisburgh Central School budget, Ferrisburgh voters on Tuesday approved two spending articles totaling $3,592,402 for the 2015-2016 school year. The result will be an increase of about 2 percent over current FCS spending.

Because a second Vergennes Union High School budget proposal was defeated on Tuesday, 722-676, despite support in Ferrisburgh, the tax impact of Tuesday’s vote is difficult to assess.

MIDDLEBURY — After surviving four losses in a recent eight-day stretch against some of Vermont’s top Division I programs, the Vergennes Union High School baseball team bounced back on Tuesday with an 8-3 victory at Middlebury, one that extended the Tigers’ own early-season hardship.

The 2-4 Commodores got a tidy five-hitter from sophomore Hunter O’Connor, who settled down after a rocky first inning and struck out seven. VUHS also got some timely hits to take advantage of 10 walks issued by two Tiger hurlers.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes officials on Wednesday learned the city will not receive an extension on its $21,000 state grant to support an East Street preschool playground, news that effectively pulls the plug on a project that generated opposition among neighbors and mixed reviews from other city residents.

The city had already received one extension from the Department of Buildings & General Services that required that work on the $42,000, quarter-acre project, proposed for city land next to the municipal pool, be under way by June.
