Has anyone noticed all of the regulatory signs existing in Waitsfield? Don’t park here, don’t park there…

We had some stars this winter all around town and it looked like we had life. However, this guy isn’t allowed to put lights around his skier; he actually had to take them down.

We’d like to hear from the business community. What is your experience getting signage in Waitsfield? Is the town business friendly?

Waitsfield Pays $20,000 for Piece of Ledge in Floodplain

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is what is left of the building that floated away. It’s obviously in flood plain and set backs overlap, creating a novel, negative building envelope. It’s too small for ANY structure.

Waitsfield Selectman Use Grant Money like Crack Cocaine

crack_is_wack[1]Waitsfield Vermont selectman appear to have been overcome with addiction. Upon hearing that all three bids exceeded the known budget for building our town hall, their first response was “How can we get more grant money?” Already exceeding the neighboring town of Moretown’s budget by 2x, our town hall was not to be surpassed.

Upon hearing of the select board spending spree, residents for fiscal restraint were woken up from their apathy and wrote into the Valley Reporter.

Waitsfield Selectman Question Donation

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the donation, or is it? The town lost taxes and has to maintain a polo field. Divots and covenant prevent any other use.

Selectman Scott Kingsbury and Logan Cooke question the donation of the Polo field. A Waitsfield resident at the meeting mentions she questioned the reasoning of this in 2009. From the review of  Selectboard meeting video and statements made by selectboard, it appears that the donor is saving $8,000 per year in taxes and in maintaining the polo field at town costs. According to the members we really can’t use the field for much else, because after a polo event, the field is pretty much full of divots from galloping horses. (See below photo and scalloping from mowing lawn).

Thinking this must be an oversight Neil has approached both organizations on multiple occasions.

Waitsfield Studies Pet Rock

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After purchasing a piece of ledge in a flood plain for $20,000, select board looks to study said purchase. There is debate about how much this will cost and what experts will be brought in for this study.

Many in town questioned this purchase. It was not put to vote. Within the office here it is affectionately known as the Waitsfield Pet Rock. It’s the straw that broke the back of common sense.
