Tax Rate Set at SB Meeting

Select board (SB) meetings are recorded by LPC-TV and are available at their website and on Comcast Television.  Written minutes are available at the town’s website.  At Monday night’s meeting the tax rate was set for the year as follows:

Fire District # 1 (Proctorsville)

• Resident 1.8282

• Non Resident 1.8394

Fire District # 2 (Cavendish)

• Resident 1.8150

• N. Resident 1.8262

Other issues discussed at the meeting were as follows:

• Depot Street Bridge: Utility lines will be buried in the riverbed in 2018 with bridge replacement taking place in 2019.

• Town Garage: Asbestos will be removed by the end of the month, with an RFP going out shortly. The goal is to have town garage replaced before snow flies.

• Winter Sidewalk Plowing: Given the age of the equipment, and associated costs, the SB discussed other options for clearing sidewalks this coming winter. One option was to hire a private contractor for this service. No determination was made.
