City mulls sewer discount for seniors

Posted on November 1, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — At the Vergennes city council meeting this past Tuesday, aldermen discussed a suggestion by Deputy Mayor Randy Ouellette that the city offer senior citizens a discount on sewer bills.
In a Thursday interview, City Manager Mel Hawley said aldermen did not act, but indicated they might consider such a move in the future.
“That is something that is worthy of looking at it,” Hawley said.
One reason aldermen did not move immediately is because of an unknown expense in the sewer ledger — how much it will cost to remove sludge from the treatment plant’s septic lagoons.

VUHS optimistic about testing after efforts in, out of classrooms

Posted on October 21, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes Union High School Co-principal Ed Webbley said only time will tell if the VUHS juniors did well on New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) tests on Oct. 5, 6 and 7.

But school officials are optimistic that years of focus on improving test scores will pay off: VUHS teachers have coordinated their efforts at helping students whose classroom work has lagged, and the school sets aside time at midday to allow teachers to give extra time to students.

Sidewalk repairs won't dip into city taxpayers' pockets

Posted on October 18, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes City Manager Mel Hawley last week said the project to repair the sidewalk and provide handicap access to businesses at the intersection of Main and Green streets should be complete by mid-November, at no direct cost to city taxpayers.

The project, which will also improve a bus stop and a sidewalk bulb-out at the intersection’s southeast corner, carries a total starting price tag of about $84,500, which Hawley said will be inflated by a few change orders.

Parties happy with ANwSU deal

Posted on October 7, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Lead negotiators on both sides said in a joint interview last week that they are satisfied with the new, two-year Addison Northwest Supervisory Union teachers’ contract, which will expire in June 2012 and preserves teachers’ existing health-care benefits and base pay.

Negotiators reached agreement in an eight-hour mediation session in mid-August, and in late September both the Addison Northwest Teachers’ Association and the ANwSU board — which represents Panton, Waltham, Vergennes, Addison and Ferrisburgh — gave final approval.

Vergennes police adding Tasers; officials cite safety, cost benefits

Posted on September 30, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Police Department has joined a small, but growing, list of state law enforcement agencies to add Taser stun guns to their equipment lists.

Chief George Merkel said the department now owns two $1,000 Tasers, which he believes are a safer tool for subduing suspects than other options at police officers’ disposal — physical restraint, pepper spray or batons.

Merkel said enough people are now familiar with Tasers that even their potential use can defuse situations.

VERGENNES — This weekend, the Vergennes Opera House will host a lively program titled “Dance Mix.”

Don’t expect this dance music to have any thumping hip hop beats or Latin rhythms. Instead, the Champlain Philharmonic Orchestra’s set list will feature upbeat selections from the likes of Tchaikovsky, Brahms and Benjamin Britten.

ANwSU board ratifies two-year teacher contract

Posted on September 27, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



VERGENNES — Teachers in the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union are once again working under a contract, after the ANwSU board of directors last week ratified a new, two-year agreement.

The new contract — which covers the period from July 1, 2010, to June 30, 2012 — holds the base teacher salary steady throughout the union, and stipulates no change in the percentage of health care coverage teachers pay. It does, however, uphold already budgeted stepped increases in salary, which will provide scheduled raises to teachers with higher education levels or longer tenures.

Pool ends season in the black

Posted on September 27, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes officials’ first summer of overseeing the city’s Sam Fishman Pool went well, City Manager Mel Hawley told aldermen at their meeting last Tuesday night, and it ended with a surplus of roughly $10,000.

The city accepted ownership of the pool this spring from the Vergennes ID school board, which ceased operations earlier this year per a 2009 vote of city residents. That board owned the land under the pool and the city’s other nearby recreation facilities, as well as an adjacent 8-acre parcel of land accessed from New Haven Road by a right-of-way.
