ADDISON COUNTY — For most local maple syrup makers, each sugaring season is marked by something new. Prices fluctuate. Mother Nature is unpredictable. And now and then, there’s an advancement in the field of sugaring — like the “check valves” that many sugarmakers are using this year for the first time to increase production (see story, Page 18) — that changes the business of sugarmaking just enough to get everyone talking.

What Redpath ended up getting for her birthday — albeit belatedly on Feb. 13 — could be called priceless, although it came with a figure: $11,116.

Ferrisburgh officials propose 3-percent hike in municipal budget

Posted on February 8, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh selectmen have proposed a 2010-2011 budget that, including charitable donations to be decided by residents on Town Meeting Day, would add about a half-cent to the town’s property tax rate. That increase would translate to $5 per $100,000 of assessed value.

Including about $57,700 of charitable requests, selectmen are proposing increasing town spending from about $1.52 million to $1.565 million.

That increase of about $45,500 translates to roughly 3 percent.

Ferrisburgh school bond driving up tax rate, budget

Posted on January 21, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh Central School board has adopted a $3.05 million spending proposal for the upcoming school year that includes a major increase, one that is being driven by the first year of payments on last summer’s $1.5 million school upgrade project.

In all, the increase is about $190,400, or 6.66 percent, over current spending.

Of that, $130,000 will go toward making bond payments. That amount alone would boost FCS spending by 4.55 percent, if voters approve the board’s proposal on Town Meeting Day.

By Kathryn Flagg



FERRISBURGH — A real estate developer is eyeing 16 acres of land along Route 7 in Ferrisburgh near Vergennes for a new solar energy project that could, if built, generate enough power to run 170 homes each year.

At this point, the 1-megawatt solar farm would be the largest solar power project north of Pennsylvania, according to developer Ernest Pomerleau.

The proposed Addison Solar Farm would be located on land just east of the Vergennes Union High School on the Vergennes-Ferrisburgh town line.

Ferrisburgh, Vergennes officials talk sewer extension

Posted on December 21, 2009 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Last Tuesday’s sit-down in Ferrisburgh town offices with town and Vergennes officials to discuss a possible sewer extension deal did not produce an immediate meeting of the minds, but both sides said afterward they would keep lines of communication open.

“It definitely wasn’t, ‘No, we don’t want it,’” said Ferrisburgh selectboard chairwoman Loretta Lawrence on Wednesday. “We want to keep it in discussion.”

Mayor Michael Daniels also said afterward he hoped talks would continue, although it appeared the city’s proposed split of tax revenue might be a sticking point.
