Lyndon Select Board wanted to make some changes to that draft

A dispute about whether the Northeast Kingdom Waste Management District (NEKWMD) was responsible for paying property taxes for its building and land on Church Street in Lyndonville has dragged on for several years, and led to a court-mediated settlement, agreed to in recent days by the waste district board. The board had earlier approved a version of the Host Town Agreement the two sides have been working on in mediation, but the Lyndon Select Board wanted to make some changes to that draft, so the agreement had to be voted on again. During a virtual meeting of the NEKWMD board, also held in-person at the waste district’s offices on Tuesday evening, the board nearly unanimously approved the agreement which will see the district provide benefits to the Town of Lyndon but not pay property taxes.
