By Zach Despart and Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — Five school boards in northern Addison County will meet in the coming weeks to draft new budget proposals after voters said “no” to initial proposed spending plans on Town Meeting Day.

The Vergennes Union High School board will meet on Monday at 6 p.m. in the school library to consider its next move. Its $10.47 million budget proposal lost, 831-718, on Town Meeting Day, with close votes in all of the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns except Ferrisburgh, which voted against the proposal, 328-243.

MIDDLEBURY — The ID-4 school board on March 4 rejected two citizens’ petitions seeking to change the date of the district’s annual meeting and the method by which the Mary Hogan Elementary School budget is voted, but the panel unanimously agreed to place two articles on ID-4’s April 8 meeting warning that would accomplish the same changes sought by the petitioners.

Sharpe at town mtg.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — Rep. David Sharpe doesn’t give off the aura of a salesman. His elbow-patched blazers may echo Willy Loman, but the soft-spoken, veteran legislator isn’t in the business of sweet-talking his way to a few bucks.

But however unnatural it may come to him, selling was exactly what Sharpe set out to do at town meetings in his district this week. It’s not goods the Bristol Democrat is hawking, but an education bill that would drastically change the organization of Vermont’s schools and alter how they are governed.

MIDDLEBURY — After two years of dipping Middlebury’s economic development hook in statewide and national waters, Jamie Gaucher is getting some nibbles and has even landed a couple of keepers.

Gaucher, two years into what will be at least a five-year stint as the director of the Middlebury Office of Business Development & Innovation, told participants at Monday’s town meeting about several new, small businesses poised to settle in town, with others waiting in the wings.

Monkton opts to move town meeting; keeps voice votes

Posted on March 5, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



MONKTON — Monkton residents took a stand for what they called the town’s democratic traditions in two ways: one, by moving the date of their town meeting in hopes of drawing more people; and two, by voting down two articles that would have changed the method of deciding several articles from voice vote to Australian ballot.

A proposed article on this year’s warning would have moved the date and time of the annual meeting from 10 a.m. on Town Meeting Day, to 7 p.m. the evening before.

SHOREHAM — The stately, Queen Anne-style brick building on Shoreham’s School Street across from the town green has served many constituencies since being erected by celebrated architect Clinton Smith in 1885. It was first built as a Universalist Church, then became home to the Simonds Lodge of the Masons, before being purchased by the Vermont Conservatory of Music in 2005.

Recently acquired by the town of Shoreham, the building is now being viewed as a community asset that could eventually host some basic public and private functions.
