July 29, 2010

A story in last week’s paper, “Board sets water, sewer rates,” provided the incorrect date of when the rates go into effect. Water and sewer rates will take effect with the second quarter billing for August 2010. Kimberly Richburg of the Public Works Department said customers will see the rate increase on November bills.

The Selectboard set the rates on July 19 with the intention of them taking effect with the second quarter billing for August 2010, although language for the vote specified August 2011. Town Manager Rick McGuire said a correction would be made at the next board meeting.

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
