St Johnsbury Passes Bond Article 2,013 to 864 on CSO Elimination Project.
The Town of St Johnsbury Vermont overwhelmingly passed their bond vote during the general election for the Eastern Avenue, Western Avenue and Main Street. This bond article is for the construction of a combined sewer overflow elimination and utility improvement project that is proposed to be completed by the Town along Eastern Avenue, Western Avenue and Main Street prior to a Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) paving project scheduled for 2014.
Most of these utilities were installed in the early 1900ís, and have extended beyond their useful life and are currently in poor or failed conditions. Dufresne Group encouraged Town officials to include this bond article this November to allow the Town to complete designs and pursue State and Federal Grants over the winter to begin construction early next spring and complete the project prior to winter ahead of the VTrans paving project.
Dufresne Group played a critical role to get information on the bond article to educate the voters on the importance of this critical infrastructure improvement project, including the development and mailing of informational bulletin to registered voters, contacting the local newspaper and radio stations to include project details.
