Library Expansion
Project Update

On June 18, 2014 Library Board Members Ernie Shand and Nancy McMenemy, along with Ralph Mintz, NBF Architects, met with representatives from Vermont Agency of  Community Development.  After viewing the site and the plans, the library has been determined to be a good candidate for an ADA accessibility grant. The Library Board is moving forward with the application for that grant, which could be between $30,000 and $75,000.

Efficiency Vermont is also now working with NBF Architects and is reviewing the proposed expansion plans for possible monetary incentives to be granted for the purchase and installation of the library's heating, ventilation and cooling systems (HVAC).

The library board is also exploring other grant opportunities with:
Christopher and Dana Reeves Foundation, Quality of Life Grant (for ADA accessibility)
Gladys Brooks Foundation Grant
Tarrant Foundation Grant
Vermont Arts Council Cultural Facilities Grant

Bond amount reduced - the proposed bond amount is now at $1.1 million dollars, a reduction of $200,000. Details on the reduction can be found here.

*** Important Information
about Expansion Bond***

The bond bank requires the full cost of the project to be listed in the bond article with the words "less and grants or other funding sources."  This means that the monies raised by both fundraising and from the taxpayers which total over $150,0000 cannot be deducted from the cost of the project BEFORE the bond article passes. The monies can be deducted, (if the bond article passes) along with any grants received AFTER the bond article passes - thereby reducing the total $1.1 million figure.

Signatures are needed!  DEADLINE JULY 7, 2014(we would like to turn them in by July 2, 2014 because the Town Office will be closed for July 4th holiday)

The Weathersfield Proctor Library Bond Petition is available to sign at the library or contact a library board member if you can't get to the library.  The petition reads:
"We the undersigned voters of the Town of Weathersfield petition to have the following article submitted by Australian ballot to the qualified voters of Weathersfield at a Special Meeting of the Town to be held on Tuesday, August 26, 2014"
"Shall the general obligation bonds of the Town of Weathersfield, Vermont in an amount not to exceed ONE MILLION, ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ($1,100,000), less any grants or other funding sources, be issued for the purpose of financing the cost of making certain public improvements at the Weathersfield Proctor Library, including constructing an addition onto the exisiting library building, such improvements estimated at a cost of One Million, One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($1,100,000).

Signing the petition is not voting for the article, the petition will add the article to the ballot to be voted on Tuesday August 26, 2014.

Absentee ballots will be available starting the week of July 14, 2014. If you might be out of town on Aug 26th be sure to pick up an absentee ballot.

Other important dates:
Tuesday, July 15th - Expansion Information Night at the Library. This will be an informal question and answer evening. Please bring your questions.

Food Shelf New Schedule

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Weathersfield Food Shelf will now be open every Thursday beginning July 3,2014 from 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM. 

Effective 07/01/2014 / Punch card increase for Transfer Station

           Beginning on July 1st, the cost to purchase punch tickets for use at the Weathersfield Transfer Station will increase to $12.50 for a 5 punch ticket and $25.00 for a 10 punch ticket. These prices reflect an increase in the price of a punch from $2.00 to $2.50.

In October, 2012, due to a significant budget surplus in the Solid Waste Fund, the Weathersfield Select Board decided to temporarily reduce the sale price of Punch Cards. Beginning on November 1, 2012, newly purchased Punch Cards began selling for the following reduced prices: 5 punch, $10.00 and 10 punch, $20.00. These prices reflected the temporary decrease in the price of a punch from $2.50 to $2.00. At the time, we thought that this temporarily price reduction would only last for a half year but we were fortunate to be able to continue it for a year and a half.

Existing Punch Cards which have already been purchased for $10.00 and $20.00 may continue to be used after July 1.

Starting July 1, 2014 - Smoking In a Motor Vehicle With Child Present Will Cost You

(a) A person shall not possess a lighted tobacco product in a motor vehicle that is occupied by a child required to be properly restrained in a federally approved child passenger restraining system pursuant to subdivision 1258(a)(1) or (2) of this title. 

(b) A person who violates subsection (a) of this section shall be subject to a fine of not more than $100.00. No points shall be assessed for a violation of this section.

( and the bill summary here


Starting July 1, 2014 a new Vermont law will be in place to protect children in car seats from secondhand smoke. Act 135 bans smoking in motor vehicles when occupied by children in a child passenger restraining system such as a car seat or booster seat. This is a primary offense and punishable by up to a $100 fine.

The Vermont Department of Health advises that public awareness is vital to the law’s success: Our goal is not to fine and ticket but to change the acceptability of smoking around children and protect those who cannot protect themselves.

Children are especially vulnerable to secondhand smoke, which causes respiratory illnesses, ear infections, and lasting damage to a young child’s developing organs and immune systems.

If you have any questions about Act 135 please contact the Vermont Tobacco Control program at or 1-866-331-5622.
