Towns to Vote to Raise Funds for Dam Study

The Tri-Town Committee wants to raise $50,000 to fund the initial engineering studies and legal work needed to determine just how to fix our dam.  It has raised $20,000 from Aloha, Billings, Lochearn, and the Lake Fairlee Association.  It is asking the towns of Fairlee, Thetford, and West Fairlee for the rest, allocated roughly in proportion to the tax revenue each derived from lakeshore properties.  Voters in each town will be asked to approve this funding on Town Meeting day in early March.

Charlotte Albright, the Upper Valley correspondent for Vermont Public Radio, interviewed Skip Brown and Ridge Satterthwaite for a recent local news feature.  HERE it is on their blog.  There is a button near the upper left that will allow you to listen to it.
