Church to become new town office; shared-use building rejected

The former St. Robert's Church will become the new town office, decided Chittenden voters Tuesday. Additionally, voters passed all town budgets including the highway budget, the cemetery budget and the school budget.

But the town rejected an idea to build a shared-use public safety building, by a 244-163 vote. The town rejection disallows Chittenden to accept a $300,000 grant award to design and build a shared-use public safety pathway. The grant required local matching funds of $16,600 per year for the next five years.
