GLOVER, VT â€“ Two members of the Glover Ambulance Squad traveled to New Jersey this week to help provide relief efforts following Hurricane Sandy, which ravaged the Jersey Coast early last week.
Jersey residents have been hit yet again with a harsh winter storm.
Squad members Dennis Gibson and Chance Griffin drove the serviceâ€™s newest ambulance. The trip took about six hours. The crew had to take a 12 hour rest before attending meetings and getting their assignments.
NEWPORT, VT- The North Country Union High School facilities committee took a building tour with Jerry Davis of PeakCM and custodian Ron Chaffee, focusing on mechanical, electrical and plumbing issues that affect A and B wings of the school.
The committee's goal is to propose a renovation plan to the school board and, following approval, to market the plan to the community to obtain support and voter approval of the project.
NORTH TROY â€“ Once again voters nixed a request to take out a $1.3 million bond for renovations and improvements to the town school.
Last March, voters turned down a $2.2 million bond for the same project. For several months, school board members worked on cutting the request by $800,000 before bringing it back this week.
Apparently, their efforts werenâ€™t enough for voters to say yes.
