By John Flowers



VERGENNES — State lawmakers and Gov. Peter Shumlin are trying to resolve a $68 million revenue shortfall in the fiscal year 2017 general fund budget. While state politicians agree on the magnitude of the financial problem, it’s clear that there is far from consensus on how to mop up the red ink.

Rep. Diane Lanpher, D-Vergennes, provided an update on the fiscal year 2017 budget at Monday’s legislative breakfast in Vergennes. Lanpher is a member of the House Appropriations Committee, which considers funding requests for state agencies and programs.

VERGENNES — Towns’ ownership of their schools and surrounding land has concerned residents each time Addison Northwest Supervisory Union has voted on unification, most recently in 2010, and the upcoming decision on March 1 is no exception.

In the past decade, a central question in some residents’ minds has been reluctance to allow control and ownership of their schools to be transferred to a single board with representatives from all five ANwSU towns, as will be the case in ANwSU if its member towns vote yes next month.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — In Vergennes, City Manager Mel Hawley said officials want to tie up three loose ends before school property is transferred to a new unified union under one-board control, something that would happen on July 1, 2017, if Addison Northwest Supervisory Union unification passes on March 1.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Residential school tax rates are now expected to drop in four out of five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union communities, according to new estimates released this week by ANwSU officials.
