Ferrisburgh school bond driving up tax rate, budget

Posted on January 21, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh Central School board has adopted a $3.05 million spending proposal for the upcoming school year that includes a major increase, one that is being driven by the first year of payments on last summer’s $1.5 million school upgrade project.

In all, the increase is about $190,400, or 6.66 percent, over current spending.

Of that, $130,000 will go toward making bond payments. That amount alone would boost FCS spending by 4.55 percent, if voters approve the board’s proposal on Town Meeting Day.

VUES board adopts level spending plan

VERGENNES — Although the face value of the Vergennes Union Elementary School budget will look bigger, residents of Vergennes, Panton on Waltham will be asked on Town Meeting Day this year to approve a little less elementary school spending than in 2009.

That’s because the 2010-2011 VUES budget will include money previously voted on separately in the three union towns’ ID board (essentially elementary school board) budgets.

Lack of scoring punch thwarts MUHS hockey

MIDDLEBURY — As has been the case at times this winter, on Monday the Middlebury Union High School boys’ hockey team did almost everything well enough to win.

The missing element in the Tigers’ 3-1 setback to visiting Northfield was offense. The Tigers outskated the 9-4 Marauders for most of the game and outshot them, 24-18, but couldn’t light the lamp.

Coach Derek Bartlett was left with mixed feelings about his 5-7-1 Tigers. Bartlett is disappointed that the Tigers don’t have more to show for their efforts, but not disappointed with their effort.

VUHS sees small spending cut

Posted on January 19, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School board last week adopted an $8.9 million budget for 2010-2011 that calls for a decrease of about $11,000 from current spending levels.

Despite that level-funded spending plan, Addison Northwest Supervisory Union officials said declining enrollments in three of the four union schools and the expected hike in the statewide education property tax rate would lead to increase in residential property taxes in the five ANwSU towns.

New sprinklers on tap for city opera house

Posted on January 14, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Earlier this month, Vergennes Opera House officials learned they would get a key piece of funding in their quest to install sprinklers in the City Hall theater: The Vermont Arts Council awarded the opera house a $20,000 Cultural Facilities Grant to support the project.

After adding the grant to a $32,588 Vermont Downtown Development Board tax credit the theater was granted in 2009, opera house executive director Jackson Evans said board members are confident they can raise the rest of the money for the $65,000 project, which they hope will begin next month.
