BRISTOL — Bristol resident Devin Wendel’s job description didn’t change this summer, but his work commute went from 44 miles, at least by way of the Appalachian Gap, to two-tenths of a mile along West Street.

For the past year, Wendel has been the full-time interim athletic director at East Montpelier’s U-32 High School. This spring he was hired to take over the same position at his alma mater, Mount Abraham Union High School — just around the corner from his family of five’s Munsill Avenue home.

FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard on Monday adopted a fiscal year 2016-2017 residential tax rate that is 7.01 cents, or about 3.7 percent, higher than the 2015-2016 rate.

The town’s new residential rate is $1.9701 per $100 of property value, up from exactly $1.90 in 2015-2016.

For homeowners who pay based solely on the value of their property, the increase will mean another $70.10 in taxes per each $100,000 of assessed value.

VergFallsBldg3349.jpg

VERGENNES — The owner of Grist Mill Island in the Vergennes falls is proposing to add five apartments to the two buildings on the island, for a total of nine overlooking Otter Creek.  

Three of the apartments would replace office space in the Grist Mill itself and two would be carved out of a now empty horse barn.

The June proposal followed the Vergennes Development Review Board’s May rejection of a 10-apartment plan submitted by Mahaiwe LLC, of which major city property owner and Ferrisburgh resident David Shlansky is listed as the manager.
