UVM, Burlington craft new agreement

Print More

The amount the University of Vermont pays to the city of Burlington for fire protection could double in the next three years.

The City Council tonight is to review a plan that would raise the university’s fire protection payment from 456-thousand-dollars currently to 912-thousand-dollars by 2010.

The plan also calls for UVM to make a new annual payment of 180-thousand-dollars to cover other impacts the university has on the city. And it calls for a more formal relationship between UVM and city police.

Jonathan Leopold, the city’s chief administrative officer, calls the plan a landmark agreement that marks a new page in relations between the city and the university.
