This is a reminder that on July 1, 2020, Vermont state law:

  • bans disposal of food scraps in the trash or landfills,
  • requires trash haulers to offer food scrap collection services to non-residential customers and apartments with 4 units or more, unless another hauler is willing to provide that service. Food scrap collection is also currently required by law for bag drop haulers.

Recycle Right! in the NEKWMD!

Announcing the 2020 Downtown and Village Center Tax Credit Program

Vermont’s Downtown and Village Center tax credit program is one of the primary benefits of Downtown and Village Center designation, and supports revitalization in community centers across the state.

In 2020, $2,600,000 in state income tax credits are available to projects that enhance the historic character and improve building safety of older and historic commercial and community buildings in these designated communities. The credits support general rehabilitation work, code compliance work, and façade improvements, and may be combined with the federal program.

Applications for the next round of tax credits are due Wednesday July 1, 2020 and the Vermont Downtown Board will make is allocation decisions by mid-August.
