2018 Vergennes city meeting preview

Posted on March 1, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



VERGENNES — A big question — one worth $500,000 — on the March 6 ballot in Vergennes is whether residents will support the purchase of a new pumper truck for the Vergennes Fire Department.

The Vergennes City Council is asking voters to back a bond in that amount to fund a new fire truck to replace the department’s Engine 1, a 24-year-old pumper. Department leaders said the 1994 truck is becoming unreliable and expensive to repair.

Posted on February 15, 2018 |
By Elsie Lynn Parini



Bixby JeffFritz1053 Lead.jpg

This past Sunday afternoon some lucky history buffs got to meet a 188-year-old Vergennes icon. Adorning his classic brown suit and tie and capped off with his fez, Mr. William Grove Bixby gave a tour of his namesake, the Bixby Memorial Library.

Of course the original Bixby is dead. In fact he died way back in February of 1907. But his legacy is very much still alive in the Little City.
