Public's top bridge choice proceeds to design phase

Posted on January 18, 2010 |

ADDISON — Vermont and New York transportation authorities are proceeding with the design of a “modified network tied arch” span that will replace the former Champlain Bridge at the same location.

That news was confirmed on Thursday by Vermont Gov. James Douglas and Gov. David Paterson of New York. The modified network tied arch scheme was the overwhelming public pick from among six possible replacement options for the Champlain Bridge, which was closed Oct. 16 and imploded on Dec. 28 after having been deemed by state officials to be unsafe and unsalvageable.

Addison faces familiar budgeting challenge

Posted on January 11, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — About three dozen Addison residents gathered on Thursday to hear Addison Central School officials explain that even with about $180,000 of proposed cuts to the school’s current budget of about $1.9 million, their tax rates will rise if that plan — and the proposed Vergennes Union High School budget — passes on Town Meeting Day.

ACS Principal Wayne Howe said the issues Addison faces are the same most small, rural schools are struggling with: meeting educational mandates with limited resources while working against the economy of scale brought on by declining enrollment.

ADDISON — Addison Central School officials have scheduled a Jan. 7 budget forum to explain to residents how their taxes could go up dramatically next year unless the ACS board slashes its draft 2010-2011 school budget deeply — much further than the lower spending that the board has considered already. Cuts on the table would affect ACS programs and employees.

ADDISON — A modified, tied-arch bridge has emerged as the leading replacement design from among six conceptual options for a new Champlain Bridge.

ADDISON — State and local lawmakers on Tuesday urged Gov. James Douglas to dedicate $1 million in federal stimulus funds to help Addison County businesses — including farms — that have taken a financial hit since the Champlain Bridge was closed on Oct. 16.

Douglas quickly endorsed the $1 million request, but said the money should be spent in the broader context of statewide, $8.6 million economic development package that includes some initiatives the Legislature rejected last session.
