VERGENNES — The Addison County Solid Waste Management District board of supervisors has voted to negotiate with Ferrisburgh about possibly purchasing or leasing the town’s 34.91-acre parcel outside of Vergennes for a regional recycling and trash collection site.

With the Vergennes recycling center probably closing on Dec. 31, Addison County Solid Waste Management District (ACSWMD) Manager Teri Kuczynski said the district board believes the best long-term answer to Vergennes-area trash and recycling handling is a regional drop-off center.

MIDDLEBURY — Tuesday’s boys’ soccer game between visiting Vergennes Union High School and host Middlebury was a rematch of a Sept. 25 game that proved to be pivotal for both the Commodores and Tigers.

On that day the host Commodores hung a 1-0 upset on a Tiger team that probably took them a little too lightly. Since then, VUHS had reeled off four straight wins to improve to 6-4 heading into Tuesday and put itself in line for a Division III playoff home game.

Vorstevelds spar with Ferrisburgh over roadside tree cutting

Posted on October 8, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — At an occasionally testy Oct. 2 Ferrisburgh selectboard meeting, the owners of the Vorsteveld Farm and board members continued to spar in what is now a 17-month dispute over the farmers’ April 2017 decision to remove without permission almost 2,000 trees and a hedgerow in the town right-of-way along Arnold Bay Road.

About a dozen Ferrisburgh farmers showed up at the Tuesday meeting to support the Vorsteveld brothers and their right to cut the trees and shrubs in a three-quarter-mile stretch of road running north from Panton near Lake Champlain.

Posted on October 4, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



AndyNagyBenson.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — About 215 Addison County residents came together on Sunday afternoon not just to enjoy a leisurely, 2.8-mile walk around their shire town, but to support a cause.

Collectively, organizers of that group stroll — the county’s Annual CROP Hunger Walk — estimate participants raised through their own donations and sponsorships an amount that should approach $28,000 once all pledges are collected. Those funds will help fight food insecurity in the county and beyond.

Panton to get new tax bills after mistake

Posted on October 4, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON — An accounting error made in Panton Town Hall that slipped past the Panton selectboard when the board adopted its tax rate resulted in the town in August sending out incorrect tax bills. Town officials confirmed on Wednesday those bills were based on a rate about 13 cents lower than it should have been.

Now they are asking Panton’s 320 taxpayers not to pay their tax bills until new ones arrive, probably early next week. The bills for Panton’s annual taxes will also have a new due date for the first installment, Nov. 9 instead of Nov. 1.

VergennesTruck1580.jpg

VERGENNES — About 70 residents and officials from Vergennes and neighboring towns on Wednesday weighed in on potential ways to ease the burden Vergennes faces from the 700 trucks, including 362 semis, that rumble through its downtown every day — the highest totals in the state.

Attendees brought a familiar list of complaints about the trucks: They are noisy, dangerous and harmful to the downtown’s historic buildings and economic prospects.
