By Zach Despart



ADDISON COUNTY — Dairy farmers in Addison County and across Vermont are weathering a significant decrease in the wholesale price of bulk milk, a trend that shows no sign of reversing.

And what a difference a year can make. The price per hundredweight of milk peaked last year in New England at more than $25, an all-time record. This month farmers expect to be paid about $16 per hundredweight, or cwt, a unit of measure that equals about 11 gallons.

Monkton Central board warns school budget revote

Posted on April 6, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



MONKTON — The Monkton Central School board on Thursday evening warned for voter consideration a new spending proposal that shifts resources within the school without increasing the size of the budget.

The sum of the proposal, around $2.82 million, is $200 less than the version voters rejected on Town Meeting Day by a tally of 231 to 178.

If passed, the budget would represent a 9.3 percent spending increase over the present fiscal year. The new vote will be Tuesday, April 14.

By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — A committee of volunteers charged with developing a design for a new firehouse in Bristol will present the plan they chose at a meeting next Wednesday, April 8, at 7 p.m. in Holley Hall.

If the public is receptive of the plan, the selectboard hopes to schedule a bond vote for the project as early as June, with an eye on breaking ground in September.

The new firehouse would replace the current facility on North Street, which was completed in 1897 and suffers from a number of structural deficiencies.
