years ago at Town Meeting, about two dozen towns from Montpelier to White River
Junction voted to join ECFiber, a
community based organization that promised to deliver high speed fiber optic
broadband service to every household. Today
ECFiber has been able to connect just a few hundred customers, and in the five
years that have passed, its had to dramatically change its business model.
this Town Meeting Day, voters in one Addison County town have reiterated their strong opposition to a
proposed natural gas pipeline, hoping to boost their voice as the Vermont Gas
Company seeks permission from the state to expand its service south.
