Between the extra amounts of salt used this winter on Vermont's streets and roads and the higher costs of emergency supplies, towns might cancel some summer street construction and repairs to make up for the winter salt expenses, Neil Boyden, director of Williston's Public Works Department, and other public works directors said. Boyden
said winters often tend to even out.A tough start to winter like this year often leads to a mild, dry late season.Such a development would help immensely, he

Lake Iroquois Beach set to open
Williston Public Works Director Neil Boyden said last week that temperatures were recently measured in the water off the beach at about 48 degrees , much too cool for most swimmers.May's persistent rain and below-average temperatures have kept the water from warming, he said.
The frigid waters prompted the Lake Iroquois Recreation Board of Commissioners
to delay the opening of the beach a week beyond its traditional Memorial Day weekend start.The beach is owned by the towns of Hinesburg
, St. George and Williston.The Board of Commissioners includes a representative from each town."The beach has always been weather dependent," said Boyden, who is Richmond's representative on the Board of Commissioners.
expects interest in swimming to escalate accordingly.
said Bob and Helen Koch, who had managed the food concessions at the clubhouse behind the beach for roughly eight years, informed the Board of Commissioners about a month ago that they would be unable to provide the services again.
said the Recreation District advertised locally in search of a new vendor, but received no responses.So, Boyden
approached the Bridge Street Cafe
about taking the job.He
said the business agreed, on short notice, to assume the vendor responsibilities.
"They ought to be really good," Boyden
said."We're lucky to get them."
The beach area will also feature a new playground designed to accommodate more children.The previous playground, which was installed in 1991, had been restricted to children age 6 and older.The new playground will suitable for children ages 2-12, according to Boyden
"We're getting a lot younger clientele there than six years old and we decided we needed to get the equipment to serve them," Boyden
said earlier this year.
The new equipment, which cost approximately $6,200, will be funded with a state grant.Boyden
said the playground should be installed around June 18, near the time school lets out.
