MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury voters on April 10 will be asked to approve a 2013-2014 Mary Hogan Elementary School budget of $6,418,788, reflecting a 4.46-percent increase in spending that would preserve current programs and beef up science, technology, engineering and math instruction.

The proposed budget does not include a second-language (Spanish) program that the ID-4 school board has been discussing for the past few years. The board elected to take a pass on such a program, at an estimated cost of $144,671, in favor of a greater focus on math and sciences.

Middlebury fire department may be asked to accept fewer tax dollars

Posted on January 24, 2013 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Town officials want to know if the Middlebury Fire Department would be willing to receive $72,000 less into its equipment savings account next year as a way of relieving stress on a tight 2013-14 municipal budget.

It was around two decades ago that Middlebury began the process of earmarking two cents on its tax rate each year to raise money for major fire equipment purchases in the future. It is a policy that has allowed Middlebury to forgo floating bond issues for the purchase of fire apparatus such as pumpers and ladder trucks.

Posted on November 28, 2011 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County Solid Waste Management District (ACSWMD) board has approved a 2012 budget of $2,576,552 that reflects a 7-percent increase in expenses, but maintains a level fee for trash disposal and reduces the drop-off charges for some recyclables at the transfer station.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury selectboard members learned Tuesday that the fiscal year 2013 municipal budget could, in a worst-case scenario, require a 5-cent hike in the local tax rate, even before crunching the initial numbers on the new spending plan.
