Fixed costs affecting Middlebury town budget

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard is beginning its review of a draft fiscal year 2019 municipal budget that, if left unchanged, would add 2.16 cents to the current local tax rate of 98.2 cents.

But it’s a spending plan that could look different when it’s put before Middlebury voters on Town Meeting Day in March, as selectboard members could recommend both subtractions and additions before agreeing to a final budget proposal by Jan. 23, when it is expected to be finalized.

Students this month unveiled their Moosalamoo Museum, which closed Nov. 21.

GMP electric rates expected to rise by 5 percent

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By Mike Polahamus of VTDigger.org



VERMONT — Green Mountain Power’s electric rates are slated to rise by 5 percent in 2018 if the Public Utility Commission approves a deal the state’s largest utility reached this month with the Vermont Department of Public Service.

The deal incorporates approximately $18 million due to GMP customers as a result of terms the company agreed to when it purchased Central Vermont Public Service Corp. in 2012.

By Addison Independent



MIDDLEBURY — A caricature of the late game warden Denny Gaiotti and his story of a defiant skunk grace the cover of the newly released “Vermont Wild, Adventures of Fish & Game Wardens, Volume 5.”

A Whiting resident and game warden for 39 years, the cover art pays homage to the legendary law enforcement officer affectionately called “Bigfoot” by Addison County outdoorsmen. Looking for Gaiotti’s size-14 boot tracks was one way hunters would attempt to ascertain if the big lawman was nearby.

The Middlebury College Department of Theatre will continue its 2017-18 theatre season on November 30 with Will Eno’s 2010 play, “Middletown,” directed by Alex Draper.

Inspired by “Our Town,” the play, according to the New York Times, is a “delicate, moving and wry amble along the collective road to nowhere,” and one “that glimmers from start to finish with tart, funny, gorgeous little comments on big things: the need for love and forgiveness, the search for meaning in life, and the long, lonely ache of disappointment.”
