Vergennes-area ballots see choices only in Ferrisburgh

Posted on January 28, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Few contested races will appear on ballots in Vergennes, Ferrisburgh and Addison, although last-minute interest in seats on the proposed 12-member board to govern all four Addison Northwest Supervisory Union schools could create more contests.

That school board will only be created if the proposed unification measure passes on March 1. Unlike for other offices, the deadline for filing papers for seats on that board is this coming Monday, Feb. 1, not this past Monday, Jan. 25.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Replacing the Main Street and Merchants Row bridges at their existing clearance level of 18 feet, 8 inches would shave about $4 million off the project price tag and 11 weeks off its construction timetable compared to the current plan that would raise clearance to 21 feet, according to the lead engineer and Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) officials.

By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — The Addison Central School board on Jan. 21 adopted a $1,606,375 spending proposal for the 2016-2017 school year that, if approved on Town Meeting Day, would make few changes to school’s program and would raise spending by 4.12 percent, or about $63,000.

That increase is almost entirely driven by an expected hike of roughly 8 percent in health insurance benefits and contracted raises, said Addison Northwest Supervisory Union Superintendent JoAn Canning this week.

LINCOLN — An experienced investigator suspects that the fire that destroyed a Ripton Road home in Lincoln on the night of Jan. 14 was caused by an electrical apparatus for illegal marijuana growing.

According to Robert Patterson, firefighters at the scene of the fire discovered thousands of dollars worth of marijuana plants in the barn at 3625 Ripton Road, tipped off by the smell as fire engulfed the house. The barn, with the marijuana plants inside, did not burn down.
