Council Approves Power Deal with Hydro-Québec


The Burlington City Council was in a giving mood last night, save for a verbal dust-up with Mayor Bob Kiss over his opposition to the Hydro-Québec contract, approving a power deal with the provincial utility, funding a study that could help keep the Vermont Lake Monsters playing ball in Burlington, and giving Champlain College the OK to expand in the city's South End.

The council started off the evening by honoring fallen firefighter Lt. Steven "Vinny" Costello as more than a dozen city firefighters stood along the back wall of Contois Auditorium.
