Vermont Finally Settling Shelburne-St. George Boundary
Montpelier, VT – A Colonial-era dispute over where one Vermont town ends and the neighboring town begins is about to be settled, once and for all. WAMC's Tristan O'Neill reports...
Governor Peter Shumlin will sign a bill today that establishes the boundary line between the towns of Shelburne and St. George.
The discrepancy, which dates to 1763, came to light most recently in 2007 after a house was built on land that both towns thought was theirs.
An arbitrator ruled that each town would give up a small bit of land to the other and that the house would be considered to be part of St. George. But the Legislature, and now the governor, had to first sign off on a new survey of the land.
