Vergennes elementary eyes 4.7 percent spending increase

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union Elementary School board on Monday night moved closer to adopting a 2013-2014 budget that would boost spending by 4.7 percent to a little less than $4.1 million.

Board chairwoman Tara Brooks said on Tuesday the board would hold a special meeting during the second week of January to make final a plan that would increase spending by about $190,000.

She said the board will probably adopt what they looked at on Monday.

“We’re pretty confident of where we are now in terms or our numbers,” Brooks said.

But when Rachel Wollum claims her cookies are “simply divine,” one can hardly accuse her of stretching the truth.

Not only do Rachel’s cookies taste heavenly, they are baked with love in the basement kitchen of Middlebury’s St. Mary’s Catholic Elementary School.
