Bristol eyes possible 1.8 percent tax hike

Posted on January 28, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — Bristol selectmen, worried about cutting too close to the bone in the 2010-2011 municipal budget, are asking town residents to approve a 1.18 percent increase in taxes this year to fund a proposed $1.9 million spending plan.

If approved by voters at the town meeting on March 1, the budget would be supported by $1,558,632 in taxes.

“If we cut too much we’re going to end up paying for it later,” Selectman John “Peeker” Heffernan said at the board’s meeting Monday night.

Selectman Sharon Compagna agreed.

City voters to consider bill-paying grace period

Posted on January 28, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes residents in March will have the chance to vote themselves a 15-day period during which they would be allowed to make late payments on tax and sewer bills without an interest penalty.

A provision for such a grace period is on the Town Meeting Day ballot adopted by Vergennes aldermen at their Tuesday meeting.

Current city laws call for a 1 percent penalty to be applied automatically if quarterly tax or sewer payments are even one day late, but City Hall workers urged aldermen to consider giving residents the power to make the change.

Bristol selectmen send gravel rules to vote

Posted on January 28, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — Hustling to meet a statutory deadline, Bristol selectmen on Monday chose to pass on to voters unchanged a proposed Bristol extraction ordinance that, if approved, would govern gravel extraction operations in the town.

Had the board opted to make even minor changes to the document, the ordinance would not have been eligible to head to a Town Meeting Day vote, when Bristol residents will also weigh a proposed town plan that has been four years in the making.
