Water board says no once again to revote

Posted on September 23, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes-Panton Water District Board again on Tuesday declined to accept Vergennes resident and Alderman Randy Ouellette’s petition calling for a second vote on the board’s $5.1 million plan for a major upgrade to its lakefront water plant.

On Aug. 4, Vergennes and Panton residents voted, 104-49, in 8 percent turnout, to approve a bond in that amount to fund what would be essentially a complete overhaul of the district’s 37-year-old plant on Lake Champlain, the first major project since its construction.

VERGENNES — At the annual meeting of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners last month in Albuquerque, N.M., Vergennes veterinarian Joe Klopfenstein was shocked when he was called up to the podium. He’d been named the 2010 Bovine Practitioner of the Year.

“It was totally unexpected,” said Klopfenstein, who owns Vergennes Large Animal Associates and who last year became a board certified specialist in his field with the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. “I had no idea it was coming.”

Water vote petition is rejected

Posted on September 16, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Randy Ouellette, a Vergennes alderman acting as a private citizen, believed on Aug. 31 that he had successfully petitioned for reconsideration of the Aug. 4 vote that backed a $5.1 million bond to pay for Vergennes-Panton Water District plant renovations.

But Ouellette this week learned that his petition had fallen into what one official in the Vermont Secretary of State’s office called “a gray area where municipal attorneys could disagree.” On Monday, he received a letter from the water district board informing him his petition lacked enough signatures to force a revote.

VERGENNES — While a five-person contest for the Democrat nomination for governor is garnering much of the election headlines leading up to Vermont’s Aug. 24 primary, U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., is not taking lightly his quest for another six-year term.
