MONKTON — Once again, it’s back to the drawing board for Vermont Gas Systems and the town of Monkton.
After several hours of impassioned discussion at a special meeting on Monday night, Monkton’s selectboard rejected a Memorandum of Understanding negotiated between VGS officials and Monkton Selectmen John Phillips and Stephen Pilcher by a 3-2 vote, with Phillips and Pilcher dissenting. Around 70 citizens attended the meeting.
“I’m disappointed, I really am,” Phillips said after the meeting. “I don’t know where we’ll go from here. Get the lawyer and sit down with Vermont Gas again, see where we are.”
