FERRISBURGH — The Basin Harbor Club is making a major change to its Lake Champlain waterfront — replacing its combination of moorings and old cement and floating docks with new, modern floating docks to better accommodate boaters who want to tie up and stay overnight at the resort and enjoy its offerings.

The work, expected to be completed in time for the May opening of the club’s 131st season, is being done by another noted Ferrisburgh concern: Dock Doctors, headquartered on Route 7.

MIDDLEBURY — The host Middlebury Union High School girls’ basketball team pulled away in Saturday’s fourth quarter to defeat Vergennes, 49-24.

The victory, the Tigers’ fifth in six tries, moved them to 7-3. It was the product of a strong team defense, as the Tigers forced 32 turnovers, and balanced scoring, as six Tigers tallied between four and 13 points.

Senior forward and tri-captain Ally Larocque (seven points and a team-high seven rebounds vs. VUHS), said they enjoyed Saturday, and their season has been satisfying.

Ferrisburgh's municipal budget won't trigger tax hike

Posted on January 26, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard adopted a budget on Tuesday that if approved by residents on Town Meeting Day would barely move the town’s municipal tax rate, effectively cut the hours of the elected treasurer position from 35 to 20 per week, and allow the board to hire an extra part-time worker for the town office.

Board members also adopted a Town Meeting Day warning that will ask residents to make three other decisions: whether to buy a $190,000 truck, to change property tax payments to a quarterly schedule, and to create a $500 Conservation Fund.

Ferrisburgh board planning to cut treasurer hours

Posted on January 23, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard is moving toward cutting hours for the position of town treasurer as it prepares its 2017-2018 budget, the latest sign of its discontent with the work of town’s elected incumbent treasurer.

The board also on Jan. 17 discussed with its auditor what he called accounting deficiencies, and changed the town’s credit card policy to give the board, not the treasurer, the authority to issue or cancel town credit cards or make changes on cards being used by cardholders.
