Vergennes pool rates to remain stable this summer

VERGENNES — Rates at the Vergennes city pool will not increase this summer, the Vergennes City Council decided on Tuesday.
Day passes for adults 18 and older will remain at $3, for youths 6 to 17 at $2, and children under the age of 6 may use the pool for free.
Rates for swimming just between noon to 1 p.m. or after 5 p.m. will stay at $2.
A season pass for city residents will still cost $50, and a family pass will go for $100. The corresponding cost for non-residents stays at $65 for an individual or $130 for a family.
Swim lessons remain at $45 per session for residents and $60 for non-residents.
In other business on Tuesday, the city council:
•  Agreed to fund lighting of the Otter Creek falls this summer, a $2,056 line item under the street light budget. Council members will before making the budget final next year discuss making some elements of the lighting installations permanent, such as a control panel and wiring, in order to save money in the long run.
•  Discussed the proposed truck route through northern Vergennes recommended by a recent study and backed by the council. Mayor Jeff Fritz said both county state senators and local state representatives have agreed to write letters of support for a plan that could become a reality in two decades, and that he and City Manager Matt Chabot would meet on May 21 with New Haven and Ferrisburgh selectboards to seek their support. A meeting with the Panton board is also set, and city officials are trying to schedule a meeting in Addison.
•  Signed necessary application paperwork for a $12,000 grant that would fund installation of an electric-vehicle charging station on the southwest corner of the city green.
