VUHS board ready to request smaller bond

Posted on April 11, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School board met on Monday night and edged closer to adopting a new, more modest bond proposal to take care of what Addison Northwest Supervisory Union Superintendent Tom O’Brien called the most critical items that were included in two earlier defeated plans.

The new bond the VUHS board discussed on Monday, which O’Brien said on Tuesday would be “somewhere in the $2 million range,” will focus “on the roof and the cafeteria and kitchen primarily, with some smaller pieces in the auditorium.”

Although the decision was technically unanimous when it was made at the end of the aldermen’s Tuesday meeting, it came only after a fairly long closed-door session at the city’s fire station.

By John Flowers



LEICESTER — Leicester residents on Tuesday voted 68 to 61 in favor of a slightly scaled-back version of the 2013-2014 elementary school budget of $1,127,521 that they had defeated on Town Meeting Day.

The new spending plan of $1,117,640 reflected $9,881 in cuts, resulting in a 5.4-percent increase compared to this year. Cuts made by the Leicester Central School board included around $2,140 in health insurance-related expenses, $2,758 less in compensation for the school nurse position, and a $5,000 reduction in administrative salaries.

Bow could only do what the other players, fans and coaches did — watch OV junior Taylor Aines’ game-winning, three-run homer sail at least 30 feet over the left-field fence.
