From the Bennington Banner:

In a split vote, the Select Board decided Thursday to send a letter to the Public Service Board, asking it to deny party status to out-of-state entities such as Williamstown, Mass., regarding permitting of a proposed 29.5 megawatt biomass facility at the former Green Mountain Race Track.

Those pesky Vermonters!

(Ed note: The Green Mountain Boys Flag)

“The gods of the valley are not the gods of the hills, and you shall understand it.”
Ethan Allen Reply to the King’s attorney-general (June 1770), in a New York court case decided against him, prior to his armed resistance to claims of New York authority over Vermont.

Many arguments suggesting that Williamstown should have a voice because of impact, but I do not see anyone suggesting Pownal should be able to regulate Williamstowns plant- funny how that works!
