VERGENNES — Just retiring City Manager Mel Hawley’s longevity in his position has been remarkable, said Vergennes Mayor Renny Perry at a Tuesday evening gathering honoring Hawley in the Vergennes Opera House.

 Perry should know. He worked as one of two city managers in Vergennes when Hawley left for 10 years, between 1998 and 2008, to work for Country Home Products, and Perry has also served as a city manager and mayor in New Hampshire.

VERGENNES — In a Tuesday meeting held in the Vergennes Opera House and largely devoted to honoring retiring City Manager Mel Hawley, members of the Vergennes City Council said they continued to be optimistic about finding a new manager before the end of August.

That’s when Hawley will step down for good. He had planned to leave after this past Tuesday’s celebration, but agreed the week before to fill in on a part-time basis to give the council another five weeks to complete its hiring process.

MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County American Legion baseball season came to a disappointing end over the past few days with four losses to contending teams. Those results left AC with a 5-16 mark that is identical to that of a year ago, and in last place in the Northern Division.

Coach Mike Estey believes this summer’s team probably had more talent overall than the 2017 edition, but that the league-wide quality of competition also improved over this past summer.

Hawley, Mel.jpg

VERGENNES — Vergennes City Manager Mel Hawley has agreed to remain at his job — but only on a part-time basis until Aug. 31 — to allow the city council a little more time to find his permanent replacement.

Deputy Mayor and search committee chairman Jeff Fritz said good candidates have emerged from a search coordinated by the Vermont League of Cities and Towns, but none would be able to take over in time, even on an interim basis, before Hawley planned to step down after this Tuesday’s council meeting.

ST. ALBANS — The Middlebury Marlins swim team wrapped up their Champlain Valley Swim League regular season on Thursday with a 254-188 setback at St. Albans.

Although the Marlins won just once during the CVSL season, a number of their swimmers have excelled and should do well at the CVSL meet, at Essex on July 27 and 28, and the summer championship meet, at Hartford’s Upper Valley Aquatic Center on Aug. 4 and 5.

As a smaller CVSL team the Marlins could also be competitive in a statewide division vs. comparable teams at the Vermont meet.

Check your Vt. property tax bill; thousands are probably inaccurate

Posted on July 19, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — Many property tax bills already sent out by Vermont town clerks and treasurers lack information about education property tax breaks for eligible homeowners, according to state and local officials. The Vermont Department of Taxes blamed “a processing backlog” at the department for the snafu.

“It’s a mess,” said Vergennes City Clerk and Treasurer Joan Devine on Tuesday, adding that by about 2 p.m. that day alone she and Assistant Clerk/Treasurer Melissa Wright had already handled eight calls on the issue.
