“The board understands there may be other avenues to pursue,” said Selectboard Chairman Rick Ebel.

The order was directed to property tenant Sheila McGregor, who has operated the Heidi’s Haven dog rescue operation at the site. Her keeping as many as three-dozen dogs in a 912-square-foot ranch home with a one-car attached garage has generated neighbor complaints for at least a decade.

Posted on April 9, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — As voices grew louder and one Sand Road neighbor accused another of lying at the April 3 Ferrisburgh selectboard meeting, Board Chairman Rick Ebel had already warned that he would call a recess to calm things down before another resident held up a dead rat in a freezer bag.
