Police, public works costs drive $1.83 million city budget draft

Posted on June 3, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes City Council last week got its first look at a draft 2013-2014 city budget, one that City Manager Mel Hawley prepared and said could mean the second increase since 2008 in the tax rate devoted solely to paying for municipal services.

Aldermen will make the final decision on the budget and the municipal portion of the tax rate by the end of June. That portion of the tax rate does not support school spending.

City council debates locations for a potential smoking ban

Posted on June 3, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — A policy asking Vergennes residents and visitors not to use tobacco on the city green or at the city pool and recreation area is on hold.

At the Vergennes City Council’s May 28 meeting, two aldermen were not sure they supported such a policy for the city green, and two other aldermen were absent. As a result, the council tabled until June 11 a policy for both the green and the recreation area near Vergennes Union Elementary School.

VERGENNES — Unlike some longtime educators, Vergennes Union Elementary School kindergarten teacher Donna Ebel did not grow up convinced she wanted to spend her career working with students.

Ebel followed a winding path to the VUES classroom that has been her professional home for the past 21 years and now for just a few days more — she will step down at the end of the school year.

Vergennes nears deal on solar array; Ferrisburgh plan is called off

Posted on May 27, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — While Vergennes nears a deal with Encore Redevelopment for a 150-kilowatt solar array near its city sewer plant, the Burlington firm has told the Ferrisburgh selectboard that further research showed its proposal for a 500-kw array on town-owned land was not feasible.

In Vergennes, aldermen and Encore could sign a deal as soon as this week for an array that could save the city at least $4,000 a year off its power bill for the next two decades.

City weighs smoking law versus policy

Posted on May 20, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen at their meeting last week moved closer to adopting a policy that would ban tobacco use in the area around the city pool and on the city’s central green.

A council subcommittee will look at model policies and ordinances offered last week by a tobacco prevention expert and make a recommendation at the council’s May 28 meeting.

A policy could be a gateway to a law that calls for tickets and fines, depending on how well the policy works.

Posted on May 20, 2013 |

gallery9783.jpg

VERGENNES — Not too long after artists and Vergennes residents Cat Cutillo and Ross Sheehan met in New York City, they knew they wanted a space that would serve as a gallery and base of operations for her photography and his work in several artistic media.

Cutillo, 33, a New Hampshire native and Tulane University graduate, and Sheehan, 35, a Salisbury native, Syracuse University and 1996 Middlebury Union High School graduate, didn’t fulfill that goal in their first several years working in the art world together in New York this past decade.
