Sewer Bond Passed by Voters in March, 2022
The City of Vergennes held a special March 1 ballot asking residents to approve a bond for a complete renovation of the city's decades-old sewer collection system and wastewater treatment facility (WWTF). The vote in favor of the bond proposal was 384 to 60, or about 87-13%.  The bond vote allows the City to pursue additional grant funding but does not commit the community to move forward with any project until approved by the City Council.
