Weybridge Town Meeting results 2019

WEYBRIDGE — Following a trend in most Addison County communities this year, Weybridge residents endorsed all requests on their town meeting agenda — including a proposed 2019-2020 general fund budget of $156,850 and a highway fund request of $511,900.
Voters also agreed to take a first step in reorganizing their community library. They dissolved the Cotton Free Library Board of Trustees, which will be replaced by a committee that will try to breathe new life into a public library that has been inactive for more than two decades. The 106-year-old library building, located off Quaker Village Road, has deteriorated and needs significant repairs before it can be put back into public use, according to local officials.
In other action at their town meeting, Weybridge residents OK’d:
•  $25,000 for local fire protection services.
•  $17,000 to continue the town-sponsored recycling program.
•  Spending up to $95,000 to buy a John Deere 444K loader for the highway department. The purchase price will be borrowed from the town’s equipment fund and replaced over a five-year period.
•  A combined total of $26,775 for various nonprofits that deliver a variety of services to Weybridge residents.
There were no contested local elections on the ballot this year. Elected unopposed were Alix O’Meara, selectboard, two years; Megan Sutton, selectboard, three years; Spence Putnam, town moderator, one year; Kristine Bowdish, town constable, two years.
Weybridge voters weighed in on a five-person race for three Middlebury seats on the Addison Central School District board; ballots cast in all seven ACSD-member towns were co-mingled and counted to decide the winners. Local residents also cast votes on a K-12 public education budget of $37,794,916 to operate ACSD schools, including Weybridge Elementary, for the 2019-2020 academic year.
