Posted on November 2, 2009 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Oct. 27 inched closer to a decision to accept ownership of the land under the city pool and nearby recreation facilities and discussed a way to help finance long-term operation and maintenance of the pool.

City Manager Mel Hawley suggested that the city council should request that the Vergennes ID school board, which now owns the land but is scheduled to dissolve next June, sell an adjacent eight-acre parcel it also owns and turn the proceeds over to the city.

The take from the sale could create a fund to help Vergennes afford pool ownership, he said.

City could allow backyard chickens

Posted on November 2, 2009 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — City Planning Commission Chairman Neil Curtis discussed at the Oct. 27 city council meeting two issues planners have dealt with in recent months: backyard chickens and off-site sandwich boards.

Essentially, Curtis said planners believe that all chickens are illegal under current zoning, but that new laws could offer room for compromise.

“That’s something we’d like to consider changing for smaller numbers,” he said, noting planners also believe aldermen should consider a “nuisance ordinance” for backyard fowl violations rather than harder-to-enforce zoning provisions.
