GUILFORD, Vt. (AP) - The southern Vermont town of Guilford is hoping for some help from the state to save a local pond.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports that Sweet Pond in Guilford was drained in April of 2011 after the state determined the dam that created it was unsafe.
Local officials say with no pond, there has been little reason for anyone to visit the adjoining state park, which opened in 1976.
Rehabilitation of the dam is expected to cost around $330,000. State Rep. Mike Hebert, who represents Guilford, says he's hoping Montpelier will chip in.
