VERGENNES — In considering their 2013-2014 municipal budget on Tuesday, the Vergennes city council gave special attention to two organizations — the Vergennes Partnership and the Vergennes Opera House.

Aldermen included $7,500 for the Vergennes Partnership despite a last-minute plea from partnership executive director Tara Brooks for $15,000 of support, which she said would allow the organization to retain at least a 20-hour position.

Vergennes to see 1.5-cent uptick in city tax bills

Posted on June 27, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes city council on Tuesday adopted a 2013-2014 municipal tax rate of 63.5 cents, up by 1.43 cents from the 2012-2013 levy needed to pay for city services, but not schools.

The increase of 1.43 cents will translate to $14.30 of additional taxes per $100,000 of assessed value, or $28.60 on a $200,000 home.

It is only the second increase in the municipal portion of the city tax rate since 2008. A year ago the council added two cents to the rate, the first change since 2008.

Posted on June 17, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — At their Thursday meeting, the Ferrisburgh Central School board heard a proposal for a roughly 120-kilowatt solar array that would produce about the same amount of electricity needed to power FCS for a year.

Jon Budreski of Waterbury’s SunCommon outlined an arrangement for a solar array that would not provide electricity directly to the school, but through net-metering would earn FCS a credit of about $2,500 a year on its power bill.
