Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - June 17, 1965, Bennington, Vermont Selectmen move on junkyards but resent Bein Quot states Quot Patsy Bennington selectmen tuesday night continued to move slowly but surely toward enforcement of a state Law regulating automobile junkyards despite the feeling of the boards chairman that the Law was a something we did no to want any part of it was just something thrown in our under the Law four or More junked cars or their equivalent in Auto parts constitutes a junkyard and the person responsible for them must either clean them out or obtain a town junkyard License from selectmen. One requirement for the License is that the Yard be screened off from Public View either by natural barriers such As Trees or shrubbery or by a Fence where such natural screening does not exist. Selectmen this year have declined to Issue a License to two established junkyard operators Fred Olin of Green acres and Jesse Dewey whose Dewey s Auto wrecking is located on Beech Street ext. Prior to the april i Date when licenses Are supposed to be issued both these and other junkyard operators were advised of Steps they had to take if any to comply with the licensing requirements. Three of the operators since were considered qualified to receive licenses and these have been issued. Olin however according to a report by selectmen several weeks ago has not taken the Steps he had been asked to As a result town fathers Are now considering instituting court action against Olin. Before that however they want to be sure that other operators Are complying with the regulations so Olin cannot claim he had been discriminated against. Regarding two of the others which have received licenses Russell Stratton of East Road and Everett Leblanc of North Bennington Road the chairman of the selectmen Richard Vansantvoord reported that Stratton had cleaned up some junked cars standing outside his Fence As he had been asked. Selectmen Joseph Higgins reported that a a Leblanc a looks All the Yard which received the greatest attention at the meeting was that of Dewey who was re 25-w further act Lori Slon but had to hold off until he was in better financial condition. The upshot was that selectmen continued to table action on a License for Dewey but told the Flynn that they were not in portion of his Yard before he would be issued a License. Appearing on Dewey s behalf were an aunt and Uncle or. And mrs. Edward Flynn. Selectmen told the Flynn that when their Nephew a said he was going to do something he did they then expressed satisfaction with the Progress on the Fence which they had asked be erected. This they indicated and the Flynn acknowledged was completed except for a Short Section Between the Yard and some Homes along Rooney court. The problem Here apparently is that the residents in the area have planted some Trees along the stretch and do not want to lose any. Flynn indicated his Nephew is bickering on the matter and said that the Trees might be perfectly satisfactory As a screen. Selectmen then indicated they would have been satisfied with the Fence originally requested except that they have now received a complaint from another resident in the area because the Yard can be seen on the South Side where there is no Fence As it is approached along South Stream Road. Vansantvoord indicated he had not been particularly concerned about this Side and agreed with the Flynn that somebody driving on South Stream Road was not Apt to see the junked autos from that direction unless they were looking for them. But Vansantvoord Felt that the other taxpayers complaint deserved some response and on this basis he and the other selectmen indicated that at some Point though it did no to have to be the immediate future they would like to see a Fence along the South Side of Dewey a Yard. The Flynn indicated that Dewey did plan to make that Exten electric Power use on the Rise in area special to the Banner new York a if the amount of electricity used by a family is an indicator of its Standard of living then living standards Are on the Rise in Bennington. The two go hand in hand say the economists. When one goes up so does the other. Locally according to the latest figures electric consumption per household is at an All time High. Details on the amount of current used and on the Cost of service Are provided in reports just released by the Edison electric Institute and by the Federal Power commission. As to costs a basis of comparison is offered in the pc report which presents typical electric Bills in effect in 5,704 communities throughout the country As of Jan. I 1964. In Bennington it shows the charge for too kilowatt hours of electricity an amount sufficient for Small lighting and appliance needs came to $4.50 a month. Elsewhere in the United states the average for this amount was $4.03. In the new England states it was $4.58. For 250 kilowatt hours a month the local Bill was $8.25. This compares with a National average of $7.43 and with $8.69 in the new England states. For local households that used 500 kilowatt hours a month which covered lighting refrigeration appliances and cooking the Bills were $11.63. In the rest of the country they averaged $10.61 and in the new England states $11.99. There is a considerable Range in the Cost of electricity from one Section of the country to another. Various factors tend to produce these variations Points out the pc. Among them Are differences in production costs due to distance from the source of fuel the compactness of the area served and the kind of ownership. Although residential rates nationally have been dropping in the last year or two they remain higher than they were to years ago. Then the Cost for too 250 and 500 kilowatt hours was $3.86, $7.18 and $10.30. The figures show that the amount of residential electricity consumed in Bennington a regional area came to 4,190 kilowatt hours per household in the year As against 2,785 used in1 1958.
