He said this meeting will be via ZOOM and they will help decide which message they think captures the spirit and value of public power. The Board said they would be here and would do the ZOOM meeting with Reg.

 

Any Other Business: Reg Beliveau, Village Manager, informed the Board that last week he attended a meeting at the P-10 site with Randy Brock to discuss what is important to Vermont utilities.

Any Other Business: Chris Leach asked how the collection of Village taxes went. Reg stated they had a very good year and only turned over approximately $48,000 in delinquent taxes to Betty Cheney.

Janet Savoi was present for this discussion and informed the Board that they decided to cancel the Gathering of the Realms event for 2022 and plan it for September 2023 instead. She said there were too many permits and details to have in place so having more time to work on this will be a benefit to them. She said the dates for the event will be September 9-12, 2023. The Board stated this event was previously approved and they approve it being held in 2023 instead of 2022. Janet thanked the Board and said she would be back in to give updates as necessary.

 

  1. Swanton Village Police Department Update:

 

 

Chief Matt Sullivan stated that in the month of September the Village responded to 96 calls for service. He said the top ten calls were 17 suspicious person/circumstance; 12 foot patrols; 9 traffic stops; 6 motor vehicle complaints; 6 community outreach; 5 citizen assist; 4 property/home watch; 4 agency assistance; 3 unlawful mischief; and 3 background investigations. He also showed them their ticket report indicating 9 warnings issued and 1 traffic ticket issued. Chief Sullivan then showed their arrest analysis which included 1 retail theft arrest. Chief Sullivan said the department responded to 179 calls for service in the month of September with the Village and Town combined. He said the top ten calls for service were 26 traffic stops; 25 suspicious person/circumstance; 13 foot patrol; 12 agency assistance; 12 juvenile problem; 10 motor vehicle complaints; 8 community outreach; 7 citizen assist; 7 welfare/suicide checks; and 5 threatening. He then showed their arrest analysis which included 1 retail theft arrest, 1 assault on a law enforcement officer, 1 resisting arrest and 1 disorderly conduct.

 

Chief Sullivan said they are planning on hiring another part-time officer who is highly experienced in emergency medicine as well as being a firearms instructor. He said this is a very good hire and they’re a local individual who went to BFA St. Albans. He also informed the Board that they are seeing an uptick in drug activity over the last couple of months. He said they are aware of the locations and are working with multiple agencies on this issue. He said they are also working on scenarios where someone would need to be removed from the rail trail in case of an emergency. He said there is a need for some kind of equipment that could be used to do this. He also said he attended the last Selectboard meeting and there were concerns about a homeless man sleeping at the library. He said he is working on getting him shelter but told him he could no longer sleep there. Adam Paxman asked if they’ve noticed individuals sleeping in the Village Green. Chief Sullivan said that hasn’t been an issue as far as he knows. Adam encouraged people if they see something to say something. The Board thanked Chief Sullivan for his report.

 

  1. Discussion on Curb Cut at 19 and 21 First Street:

 

Reg Beliveau, Village Manager, informed the Board that Don Collins is seeking permission to install a driveway on his property located at 19/21 First Street. He said this is to access his garage that is located behind his rental property on York Street. Reg said having his own driveway on First Street will be less of an inconvenience for his tenant on York Street. He also said Zoning Regulations state the Public Works foreman and Village Manager can give permission for this, but said he wanted the Board’s approval because it is on First Street. Both Adam and Eugene were fine with Reg and Dean Ryan approving Mr. Collin’s driveway on First Street.

 

  1. Approve Amended Warning, Resolution and Declaration of Official Intent for the Missisquoi Waterline Project:

 

Reg Beliveau informed the Board that the previously approved documents pertaining to the new waterline were incorrect. Instead of $900,000 this waterline job will cost approximately $1,200,000 but the Village still qualifies for a 50% disadvantage subsidy on that amount. This will amount to $600,000 in loan forgiveness so he feels this is definitely the route to pursue to benefit the Village taxpayers.

 

Adam Paxman made the motion to authorize Dianne Day, Village Clerk, to sign the Resolution Certificate stating that it was determined that the public interest and necessity demand certain public water system improvements, namely to construct a second water line from the water plant crossing the Missisquoi River to the Village at an aggregate estimate cost of $1,200,000. Eugene LaBombard seconded. Motion carried.

 

Eugene LaBombard made the motion to approve and adopt the Warning and Ballot to be used on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Adam Paxman seconded. Motion carried.

 

Adam Paxman made the motion to approve and adopt the Declaration of Official Intent of the Village of Swanton to reimburse certain expenditures from proceeds of indebtedness. Eugene LaBombard seconded. Motion carried.

 

  1. Authorize Village Manager to Sign Vermont Municipal Bond Bank Application for Unspent Loan Proceeds and Authorize Assistant Village Manager to close Hydro Checking Account:

 

Lynn Paradis, Assistant Village Manager, stated the Board already approved her applying $92,700 in unspent bond money toward the principle on the rubber bag bond. She also said she has approximately $3000 in the hydro checking account and she will deposit those funds in the general checking account. Adam Paxman made the motion to authorize Village Manager, Reginald Beliveau Jr., to sign the Vermont Municipal Bond Bank Application for Unspent Loan Proceeds and to allow Assistant Village Manager, Lynn Paradis, to close the Hydro Checking Account. Eugene LaBombard seconded. Motion carried.

 

  1. Authorize the Village of Swanton to Purchase 2022 VT Transco Equity Offer and to also Purchase any Unsubscribed Units:

 

Eugene LaBombard asked if the Village ever purchased any unsubscribed units. Lynn Paradis said yes they have and they receive dividend payments quarterly on all the units they have purchased. Eugene LaBombard made the motion to authorize the Village of Swanton to Purchase 2022 VT Transco Equity and to also purchase any Unsubscribed Units. Adam Paxman seconded. Motion carried.

 

  1. Approve the Town of Highgate’s Water and Wastewater Allocation for Airport Upgrade:

 

Eugene LaBombard made the motion to enter Water Commissioner’s meeting at 7:32 p.m. Adam Paxman seconded. Motion carried.

 

Eugene LaBombard made the motion to approve the Town of Highgate’s water and wastewater allocation for the airport job as presented. Adam Paxman seconded. Motion carried.

 

Adam Paxman made the motion to exit Water Commissioner’s meeting at 7:35 p.m. and re-enter Open Session. Eugene LaBombard seconded. Motion carried.

 

  1. Any Other Necessary Business:

 

Reg Beliveau said the FERC public hearing and meetings recently held went pretty well.

 

Neal Speer stated they have welcomed another new business on Merchants Row called Divine Treasures. He said Vision Nutrition recently opened there as well and the House of Pizza and Scampers make Merchants Row a real nice place to shop and eat. He said he’d like to commend all small businesses for welcoming everyone.

 

  1. Executive Session to Discuss Personnel and Real Estate

 

Adam Paxman made the motion to enter Executive Session at 7:41 p.m. to discuss real estate and personnel. Eugene LaBombard seconded. Motion carried.

 

Adam Paxman made to the motion to exit Executive Session at 9:00 p.m. Eugene LaBombard seconded. Motion carried.

 

ACTION TAKEN: None.

SWANTON VILLAGE BOARD OF TRUSTEES

SWANTON VILLAGE MUNICIPAL COMPLEX

120 FIRST STREET

SWANTON, VT 05488

 

PUBLIC HEARING

Monday, October 3, 2022

7:00 PM

 

PRESENT: Neal Speer, Village President; Chris Leach, Trustee; Adam Paxman, Trustee; Eugene LaBombard, Trustee; Reginald Beliveau Jr., Village Manager; Dianne Day, Village Clerk; Linda Wirts, Chevon Cooper, Ron & Sandy Kilburn, Hank & Molly Lambert, Jenn Yandow, and Gordon Winters. Via Zoom: Lynn Paradis, Assistant Village Manager.

 

  1. Call to Order:

 

Neal Speer, Village President, called the meeting to order at 7:10 p.m. Everyone stood for the Pledge of Allegiance.

 

  1. Public Comment:

 

Hank Lambert, volunteer member of Swanton Enhancement Project Beautification Committee read the following letter to the Trustees:

 

Dear President Speer and Members of the Trustees,

 

Since the formation of the SEP Beautification Committee in 2015, SEP has taken the lead in efforts to enhance the beauty of Swanton’s landscape, which creates a sense of civic pride, enhances economic development efforts and encourages prospective residents to consider Swanton.   To date, these efforts have been entirely volunteer, with funding primarily raised through fundraising initiatives.

 

Our committee has reached a point where the installation and maintenance of trees and flowers is far greater than our small group of volunteers can manage. To continue and expand streetside beautification requires municipal funding. We hope you will consider this request for Commitments by Swanton Town and Village to Beautify Swanton.

 

Vision and Mission of the SEP Beautification Committee

The Beautification Committee of the SEP envisions citizens joining a common effort to enhance the beauty of Swanton’s landscape. Our mission is to       

  1. Create inviting and colorful streets and spaces.
  2. Enhance the year-round beauty of the Village Green; ensure its sustained use as a safe, attractive and vibrant public space.
  3. Boost citizens’ sense of place and community pride

 

Summary of Request

The Swanton Enhancement Project requests municipal funding to support a seven-year effort to heighten the beauty of Swanton. The program calls for planting and maintaining streetside trees, creating and maintaining gardens and planters throughout the village core and surrounding streets of our community. This request seeks annual municipal funding over an anticipated span of seven years.

 

Proposed budget for the first year (2023):

One-time ARPA funds              $10,000

Volunteer Fundraising              $  5,000

Municipal Appropriation           $30,000

 

Proposed budget for 2024-2029 (Assume 3% average annual cost increase):

2029

Goals and Estimated Costs

Goal #1: Create beautiful roadway entrances to Swanton with trees, flowers and planters. First St., Spring St., Canada St., Grand Ave., No. & So. River Streets.    

  • Over the next seven years, plant 70 trees on street entrances to Swanton.      

Cost Estimate, year one: 10 trees @ $500 per tree = $ 5,000

  • Over the next seven years, expand the number of flower beds and planters on street entrances into Swanton village.  

Cost estimate, year one: 2 beds @ $500 per bed = $1,000  

 

Goal #2: Create trouble-free methods for watering flower beds and planters.    

  • Install underground irrigation on the village green

One time Cost estimate: $5,000                                   (ARPA funds in 2023 only)      

  • Construct a source for watering flower boxes on the bridge.                                        

One time cost estimate:   $5,000                                   (ARPA funds in 2023 only)        

 

Goal # 3: Provide incentives to businesses and private property owners to beautify storefronts and private lawns 

  • Offer matching micro grants to businesses and private property owners to beautify store fronts and streets.  Cost Estimate:  $1,000

 

Goal #4: Achieve dependable, long term municipal support       

  • Equipment and materials for planters, soil and soil amendments, hanging baskets, and related items. 

Cost Estimate: $2,000

  • Contract with a person experienced in horticulture and dedicated to planning, planting and maintaining plants, and related activities, especially from May through October. ($50/ hr. X 20 hrs./wk. X 26 weeks)                  Cost Estimate: $26,000       
  • Currently, the Village is responsible for village parks and the beach. The Town is responsible for the recreation path, the Fourth Street initiative, Veterans Park and the Recreation Department. Consider combining all parks and beautification efforts into a ‘One Swanton’ responsibility, perhaps named Swanton Parks and Recreation, splitting the costs between the two jurisdictions.                                                                                                                      

 

Conclusion

Advocates of this proposal are motivated by the fact that cultivating a beautiful and inviting appearance with trees, flower beds and planters is an expression of community pride among its residents.  In addition, such enhancements create a welcoming atmosphere for visitors and prospective businesses alike.

 

In a 2018 survey conducted by the SEP’s Beautification Committee, 421 out of 1100 Swanton residents surveyed gave high rankings to the appearance of the community and, in particular, the swans, colorful flowers, trees and planters.

 

We hope you will fully affirm this request to beautify our community by committing the necessary funds to sustain these efforts. In partnership with the town and village, SEP leadership, and volunteers, let us move forward to an even more vibrant and welcoming community.

 

Thank you for your consideration of this proposal. We appreciate all that you do in the service of Swanton and its residents.

 

Sincerely,

Debbie Winters, Co-Chair

Betsy Fournier, Co-Chair

And Members of the SEP Beautification Committee: Saundra Dubois, Sarah Foisy, Marie Frey, Sandy Kilburn, Hank Lambert, Shelley Robtoy, Lauriette Winters, Linda Wirts

 

The Village of Swanton also wanted to show what the Swanton Enhancement Project is requesting from the ARPA funds.

 

Dear President Speer and Members of the Trustees,

 

Swanton Enhancement Project (SEP) is grateful that the Town and Village are accepting public input for the use of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds.  The Vermont League of Cities and Towns has provided a summary of the Final Rule for use of the funds, which provided much greater flexibility in the use of the funds.  The opportunities are endless, but SEP would recommend prioritizing the following types of projects:

  • Projects that have not been successful in receiving competitive grant funding in the past (i.e. Planning grant for Recreation Dept., Marble Mill phased restoration, LVRT trailhead, etc.)
  • Projects that don’t have other sources of grant funding (i.e historic restoration funds, brownfields funds, infrastructure grants, etc.)
  • Projects whose investment provides long term benefits or spurs additional private investment or encourages population growth (i.e. streetscape improvements, parks improvements, Recreation programs, etc.)
  • Projects that are “one off” or time limited so budget holes are not created

 

Additionally, although the Village and Town received separate sources of funds, there may be projects that are geographically located in one but that provide significant benefits to the entire Swanton Community.  In these cases, there may be an opportunity for the Village and Town to pool ARPA resources to leverage larger grant opportunities or provide greater benefit than acting alone. Examples of this type of project include:

  • Commercial Streetscape and Village green improvements (utilities underground, ADA accessibility)
  • Sidewalk improvements
  • Parks improvements
  • Projects that leverage the potential of the LVRT and its users
  • Programs at the Recreation Department, Library, Historical Museum and other entities that serve all residents

 

 

 

Below is an initial list of projects that SEP would recommend for ARPA funding investment:

  • Use ARPA funds to Leverage Future Larger Grants
    • Provide funding for consultant or staff person through 2026 to source grant opportunities and write grants that leverage portions of ARPA funds
  • Village green improvements
    • Put electrical utilities and wires underground
    • Fountain repairs and improvements
    • Repair the bandstand to improve safety and accessibility
    • Improve / expand the swan pond
    • Install underground irrigation to flower beds
    • Redesign trees and other plantings
  • Funding for future phases of the Downtown traffic plan
    • Downtown commercial streetscape improvements
    • ADA Accessibility upgrades
  • LVRT trailhead parking and way finding signage along Fit and Healthy Path
    • Fund balance of proposed construction of parking area - $90,000
    • Welcome to Swanton signage design and installation at trailhead, Grand Ave. and River St.
      • Provides wayfinding to local businesses, services, recreational and cultural offerings
  • Parks 4 year capital improvement plan through 2026
    • Set aside $25,000 per year for 4 years - $100,000
    • Items could include:
      • new fencing around courts at Marble Mill Park
      • new basketball hoops at Marble Mill Park
      • Play features at Swanton Beach
      • Improved Marble Mill entry area and signage.  Install retaining wall
      • Landscaping and Beautification efforts including
        • Purchase 100 street trees for planting on village and town streets
        • Provide source of water for bridge boxes
      • Staff person dedicated to parks maintenance
  • Business Development 4 year investment through 2026
    • Set aside $25,000 per year for 4 years - $100,000
    • Items could include:
      • 0% interest loans for fa├žade improvements and interior fit-ups
      • Signage grants
      • Pay first 2 months of commercial rent to entice new business
      • Fund pop-up business programs to fill empty storefronts
      • Fund business development staff liaison as point person for existing business and to help identify new business opportunities
  • 4th Street Recreation Land Improvements
    • Master Design for fields, parking, amenities
    • Gravel parking area
    • Restroom and facilities storage building
    • Pavilion and picnic area

Betsy Fournier, Co-Chair

And Members of the SEP Steering Committee: Molly Lambert, Hank Lambert, Christine Sweeny, Darci Benoit, Suzanne Washburn, Joel Clark, Shelley Robtoy, Sandy Kilburn, Ron Kilburn

 

Jen Yandow stated she would like it if ARPA funds were used to install electric car charging stations in the downtown area. She said Swanton is the last stop before someone enters Canada and it would be nice if chargers were available downtown so people would stop and shop and have some lunch.
