Addison sees tax rate drop

Posted on August 6, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



 

ADDISON — Due to a combination of factors, the town Addison’s residential property tax rates dropped by 14.8 percent for the 2012-2013 fiscal year, while the town’s commercial property tax rate fell by 10 percent. 

Addison’s new residential rate is $1.5412 per $100 of assessed value, down from $1.8084.

That decrease of almost 27 cents translates to a tax bill that is about $534 lower for an Addison home assessed at $200,000, assuming its owners are not eligible for property tax relief.

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) began a major rebuild of the 7.3 mile stretch in early June, and is slated to finish in mid-November. The $5.8 million project stretches from Route 7 to Route 22A, and began with shaving down the top several inches of road, revealing ruts and potholes beneath.

ADDISON — Snake Mountain was host to many unfamiliar visitors on Monday afternoon. Two dozen foreign and American students hiked up the mountain’s slope, many students of whom had a mere 48 hours earlier been on the other side of the Pacific Ocean en-route to a three-week study-trip to Vermont.

These 25 high school students traveled thousands of miles to participate in the nonprofit, educational program Green Across the Pacific.

ADDISON — Vergennes resident Karen Florucci can’t pin down whether she was in second or third grade when she picked out her career, but the choice stuck.

In early June, Florucci will retire after 25 years teaching at Addison Central School, 21 in kindergarten and four in second grade.

Before arriving at ACS, the 1972 Castleton State College graduate taught two years of elementary school in Castleton and three years at the now-shuttered Brandon Training Center, and then for four years in the 1980s operated her own kindergarten in her Vergennes home.

Addison zoning data posted on website

Posted on April 30, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — Addison officials said last week they have been a little disappointed that the town’s still relatively new website has not drawn more traffic from town residents, but members of the development review board and planning commission hope one of the latest additions might spark more interest.

Zoning administrator Ed Hansen, who returned to that post in February after his contract was not renewed a few years back, has begun posting monthly updates on planning and DRB activity.

Addison taxes seen dropping

Posted on February 9, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



 

ADDISON — As town budget crafting season has wrapped up, the Addison selectboard has proposed to spend more in the 2012-2013 fiscal year than its members had budgeted in the current fiscal year — but this year the town has managed to save almost $75,000 that the board is planning to use to lower the town’s tax rate next year.

Meanwhile, in Panton, the selectboard’s proposed budget is lower on its face value, but if residents back four proposed capital funds, net spending could rise slightly in the upcoming fiscal year.

ADDISON — Longtime Addison Town Clerk Jane Grace recently announced her intention to step down after more than 40 years on the job.

Grace told the selectboard that she would stay on until the end of 2012.

Assistant clerk Marilla Webb has served in that capacity for many years.
