Starksboro backs $1.6 million town garage bond

STARKSBORO — Voters in Starksboro on Tuesday approved a $1.65 million bond issue to build a new town garage.
Residents voted 159 in favor of, and 20 opposed to building a new 7,000-square-foot garage on town-owned land north of the town offices on Route 116, near the fire station.
The new structure will be almost twice as large as the current facility so it can house all the road crew’s equipment: three trucks, a tractor, a grader and other smaller pieces of equipment.
The estimated cost for the project is $1.69 million. The selectboard is seeking voter approval for a bond that totals $1.65 million; the balance of the cost of construction would come from a previous year’s municipal surplus.
The 179 voters who cast ballots represented 14 percent of the 1,262 voters on the Starksboro checklist.
