“I can’t say that enough. The public has a right to speak at your school or selectboard meetings,” Condos said. “You can’t shut them off. You can limit them.”

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury selectboard members learned Tuesday that the fiscal year 2013 municipal budget could, in a worst-case scenario, require a 5-cent hike in the local tax rate, even before crunching the initial numbers on the new spending plan.

The potential tax increase is associated with four financial outlays — some of them optional, others that hang in the balance — that could add $348,364 to the town spending plan that will cover July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013.

WEST ADDISON — A legion of dignitaries and hundreds of residents from both sides of Lake Champlain marked the much-anticipated opening of the new Champlain Bridge on Monday afternoon.

Gov. Peter Shumlin and state Rep. Diane Lanpher, D-Vergennes, were among the Vermont delegates who helped cut the ribbon on the $76 million bridge that was two years in the making. The former Champlain Bridge, build in 1929, was abruptly closed on Oct. 16, 2009, after it was deemed to be unsafe for travel.

MIDDLEBURY — Voters in the Addison Central Supervisory Union (ACSU) school district will likely be asked to approve a bond issue next year to help pay for re-roofing the Middlebury Union Middle School building.

The UD-3 school board has agreed to solicit bids for the work, which an architect has already estimated will cost between $634,457 and $960,608. The former figure reflects the cost of installing a new asphalt shingle roof; the latter would provide for a new metal roof.
