Vergennes to see 1.5-cent uptick in city tax bills

Posted on June 27, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes city council on Tuesday adopted a 2013-2014 municipal tax rate of 63.5 cents, up by 1.43 cents from the 2012-2013 levy needed to pay for city services, but not schools.

The increase of 1.43 cents will translate to $14.30 of additional taxes per $100,000 of assessed value, or $28.60 on a $200,000 home.

It is only the second increase in the municipal portion of the city tax rate since 2008. A year ago the council added two cents to the rate, the first change since 2008.

BRISTOL — Porter and Dave Knight of Bristol have watched their Fresh Air child grow for the past 9 years. This year will be the 10th summer 14-year-old Elijah Hedrington, of the Bronx, has visited the Knights. “He’s fit right into the family since the very beginning,” Knight said. Porter believes that hosting a Fresh Air child is just as eye-opening for her family as it has been for Elijah. “Having a Fresh Air child helps your family grow as much as it helps the child grow. They see things differently but so do you,” she said.
