CVU turf fields bond defeated

Voters turned out to the polls Tuesday, narrowly defeating a bond to construct turf athletic fields at Champlain Valley Union High School.

The votes from Williston, St. George, Hinesburg, Shelburne and Charlotte came in at 1,856 for the bond and 1,969 against it.

Voters were being asked to approve a $1.5 million bond to build two turf fields, including lights and bleachers on one field. Since other bond payments for CVU facilities are decreasing, the bond would not have resulted in a net increase in taxes. The bond would have been supplemented by funds raised by the Turf Fields Committee. The total cost for the upgrades was estimated at $2.6 million.


  1. Louis M. Izzo says:

    I take frequent walks in my neighborhood and surrounding sidewalks/roads on Industrial Avenue and Rt 2-A and occasionally see what appears to be a dog-poop bag, nicely tied, but simply left there in the road or on the sidewalk. I would like to remind dog-walkers that this is not appropriate. Please carry it off.

    Thank you for meeting your legal responsibilities.
