Crackdown on migrant workers worries local farmers

August 16, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Local farmers this week sharply criticized new federal rules calling for large fines to be levied on employers who do not fire foreign workers who present them with inaccurate Social Security information.

Farmers argued that the new rules — unveiled late last week by the Department of Homeland Security — will further stem a vital source of foreign labor that has kept many Vermont dairy operations afloat. An estimated 2,500 migrant laborers, many of them with dubious work and immigration credentials, currently toil in anonymity on dairy farms throughout the state, performing jobs that Vermonters increasingly don’t want to take.

Approximately 500 migrant laborers, hailing primarily from Mexico, are believed to be working on farms in Addison County.

“It was just starting to get better, and now this happens,” said Cheryl Connor, a Bridport farmer and member of the Addison County Migrant Workers Coalition (ACMWC), a group that advocates for the needs of guest farm laborers.

Otter Creek hydro proposal dries up

August 16, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Planning for a proposed small-scale hydro project for the Otter Creek Falls in Middlebury has come to a screeching halt after a Vermont Department of Public Service (DPS) decision to take a pass on a grant request submitted by the project’s local developers.

Meanwhile, planning will go forward on the feasibility of using biomass technology to supply heating and power for Otter Creek Brewing, which did receive a DPS grant through the state’s Clean Energy Development Fund (CEDF).

State officials recently announced that they will award $2 million in grants to 17 projects designed to promote clean electric energy technologies and programs — primarily with respect to renewable energy resources — and the use of combined heat and power technologies.

Bristol sewer proposal calls for double capacity

August 16, 2007

By CYRUS LEVESQUE

BRISTOL — The Bristol selectboard on Monday received a proposal for a new wastewater treatment system to fix the town’s lack of excess sewage capacity. If the plan is approved in its current form it would double the existing capacity of the system, which is now at its limit and cannot allow additional users or changes in use.

The proposal presented to the board by engineer Alan Huizenga is only a draft, preliminary proposal, he said, and would cost between $400,000 and $500,000. The proposal would be voted on by residents before any action is taken.

“This is the first step in the preliminary design process,” said town administrator Bill Bryant.
