Voters to decide on purchase for new town garage

Residents in the Vermont town of Wheelock are being requested to think about approving the acquisition of a building to use as a new town storage.

The Caledonian-Report studies the proposal that can be on the annual city assembly ballot March 5 asks voters to think about spending not more than $280,000 to purchase the property.

Town Clerk Carol Rossi says the town voted to purchase the property in 2016, but the purchase did not go through.

Selectman Dennis Sawyer stated during a meeting Wednesday that the property lies in a flood zone, and officers need to ensure that they will put up a barrier to guard the constructing.

Agency of Natural Assets floodplain supervisor Sacha Pealer says the city would wish to get personal insurance coverage for the property.
