Posted on October 16, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes City Council at its Tuesday meeting last week agreed to Mayor Michael Daniels’ suggestion to look at the idea of adopting local option taxes in the city.

Local option taxes piggyback on state sales-and-use or rooms-and-meals taxes by adding 1 percent for local revenue to either or both. Daniels said a study conducted a number of years ago, when the city briefly considered the idea, showed that such a tax could raise $100,000 a year for Vergennes.
