Officials in St. Albans say Vermont lawmakers didn’t act fast enough to reform the state’s land use law, and the delay cost the town almost $80,000. St. Albans wants the state to reimburse the town for permit costs related to a sewer line extension built last year.
St. Albans officials say it took three years to get the Act 250 permit necessary for the project. And they say that delay cost the town almost $80,000 more than originally estimated. They say the delay could have been avoided if lawmakers acted faster to reform Act 250.
Officials will discuss their request in front of the House Natural Resources committee on Wednesday.
