Public hearing set for All Metals relocation

Meeting Thursday, Aug. 28

All Metals Recycling, currently located on James Brown Drive, is looking to move its salvage yard operation to Avenue B off Industrial Avenue.
A public hearing is set for Thursday, Aug. 28 at 6 p.m. at the Town Hall.
All Metals needs a certificate of approved location before it can obtain the proper state license to open a salvage yard in town, which requires a public hearing.
The board went through a similar process last September when it approved the James Brown Drive location. All Metals Recycling opened that facility after nearly two years of appeals from nearby residents and another salvage yard.
The Development Review Board approved All Metals’ request for a discretionary permit at its July 22 meeting.
All Metals Recycling is proposing a scrap metal recycling business on a .72 acre portion of an S.D. Ireland property near the end of Avenue B.

    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.
