Posted on April 16, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON — Although some questions remain about the feasibility of a kitchen on the upper level of Panton Town Hall, work that voters approved on Town Meeting Day to improve the 19th-century structure will soon begin.

Overall plans call for making town hall’s two bathrooms handicap-accessible, replacing the handicap ramp, adding the kitchen, and installing a newly built, low-maintenance cupola to replace the deteriorated cupola that was removed in 2011.

2018 Panton town meeting preview

Posted on March 1, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



PANTON — Panton voters will meet at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 6, when they will make several decisions about their town hall.

But they won’t be meeting in Panton Town Hall.

Because of ongoing work to the building and the fact that its handicap ramp is currently unusable, the Panton selectboard decided to move town meeting to a site that is “an officially ADA-qualified location.”

That would be Panton’s town garage, and it will host town meeting this March.

Bixby Library plans big space changes, but won't ask for tax dollars to pay for it

Posted on February 5, 2018 |

Bixby9504 lead pix.jpg

VERGENNES — The Bixby Library is about to embark on almost a quarter-million dollars of renovations, repairs and reconfigurations that its board members and director think will not only help preserve the Vergennes landmark, but also enhance the library’s ability to meet the needs of the five communities it serves.

Board members said funding for what will in fact be three separate projects will come from the library’s maintenance endowment, grants, donations, and the sale of tax credits.

ANWSD eyes level-funded budget with staffing cuts

Posted on January 8, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Addison Northwest School District board on Wednesday leaned toward adopting a level-funded $21.1 million spending plan for the fiscal year that begins July 1.

It’s a budget that ANWSD officials said would mean elementary school and support staff personnel cuts, but would also maintain educational programming and limit a property tax increase to less than the 9.4 cents expected statewide.
