CHESTER, Vt. – Residents of Chester approved the 30-year bond for the EMS/Town Garage project for $4.78 million by a healthy margin during the special town vote Tuesday, Nov. 5. The count was 315 “yes” votes versus 183 “no” votes, according to the Chester town Facebook page.

The project will construct a new EMS Services building, located on Pleasant Street, which will house the fire, police, and ambulance services for Chester and completely renovate the existing Town Garage.

There were three informational meetings leading up to the vote, Sept. 25, Oct. 23, and Nov. 4, where Selectboard Member Lee Gustafson, along with other Building Committee members, presented costs, schematics, and an overview of the project to help garner town support.
