VUHS sees small spending cut

Posted on January 19, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School board last week adopted an $8.9 million budget for 2010-2011 that calls for a decrease of about $11,000 from current spending levels.

Despite that level-funded spending plan, Addison Northwest Supervisory Union officials said declining enrollments in three of the four union schools and the expected hike in the statewide education property tax rate would lead to increase in residential property taxes in the five ANwSU towns.

New sprinklers on tap for city opera house

Posted on January 14, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Earlier this month, Vergennes Opera House officials learned they would get a key piece of funding in their quest to install sprinklers in the City Hall theater: The Vermont Arts Council awarded the opera house a $20,000 Cultural Facilities Grant to support the project.

After adding the grant to a $32,588 Vermont Downtown Development Board tax credit the theater was granted in 2009, opera house executive director Jackson Evans said board members are confident they can raise the rest of the money for the $65,000 project, which they hope will begin next month.

VERGENNES — Designing the replacement for the Champlain Bridge will involve a literal, as well as figurative balancing act, according to officials from HNTB, the firm commissioned by the state of New York to plan the new structure.

The new bridge will have to be wide enough to better accommodate vehicles, pedestrians and bikers, but not so wide that it triggers more intensive permitting requirements, HNTB Vice President Ted Zoli told more than 60 area residents who showed up in Vergennes on Monday evening for an overview of how the span will take shape.
