Earlier this month, members of the Vermont Kids Against Tobacco (VKAT) group in Windsor took to the streets to pick up litter. But unlike the statewide Green Up Day effort happening around the same time, these kids were out to collect one thing: cigarette butts.
Earlier this month, voters at the Annual Village Meeting in Hyde Park passed a $3 million bond question to build a 1-megawatt community solar project. On Thursday, Stowe voters will consider spending up to $3.5 million on a similar project. Both towns plan to fund the projects through zero-interest federal Clean Energy Renewable Bonds. The deadline to apply for funding is next week.
