Shumlin To Sign Bill To Rebuild State Offices

Print More

Governor Peter Shumlin is going to sign legislation that will formally begin the process of rebuilding the Vermont state office complex damaged when flooding from Tropical Storm Irene inundated Waterbury.

About 1,500 state workers were displaced from their Waterbury offices when Irene hit last August.

About 200 have since returned to the Public Safety building, but hundreds more are now working at temporary locations across northern Vermont.

The plan is to rebuild the complex so it can withstand another flood and bring about 900 jobs back to the community.
