Posted on June 28, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Tuesday approved the first increase in the municipal portion of the city tax rate since 2008, a 2-cent hike that will bring it to about 62.3 cents for the 2012-2013 fiscal year that begins on July 1.

Addison Northwest Supervisory Union officials and City Manager Mel Hawley expect the city’s residential school rate to drop by a little bit less than a penny, meaning the overall residential property rate in Vergennes should rise by a little more than a penny.
