Addison Independent still preferred for town news

MIDDLEBURY — At a March 21 meeting, the Middlebury selectboard reviewed town meeting poll results and feedback. Fifty-nine percent of 201 responders said they preferred to be informed on town news via “ newspaper,” followed by Front Porch Forum (38 percent) and town listserv (36 percent).
Forty-nine percent of respondents said they wanted to learn more about the upcoming rail bridges replacement project and proposed Ilsley Library expansion; next on the list was the town plan update at 36 percent.
According to the handout, “most were satisfied or had no response” about town meeting in the Middlebury Union High School auditorium. But some criticized the length of the meeting and the difficulty of access to microphones for those not sitting near aisles; some of those residents suggested hand-held microphones or a return to a gym setting.
