Mold on the walls of the highway garage cited recently by a site inspector is just one of the reasons town officials aim to build a new garage

Mold on the walls of the highway garage cited recently by a site inspector is just one of the reasons town officials aim to build a new garage, and they met Monday as a step toward that goal. Standing over a table covered with multiple building plans in the town office for a lunch meeting, Road Foreman Dave Kaufman and select board members Joe Allard, Mark Daigle and Christine Emmons discussed likes and dislikes about existing highway garages in the area. They hope to use one as a starting point for the garage they envision on property the town is buying off Route 5 in West Burke. The town’s current garage site is off School Street in West Burke. It’s off a town highway, in a residential area, near the West Branch of the Passumpsic River. The building is decades old, and is deficient in multiple ways, including air quality, heating, insulation and size.
