Budget cuts lead to unmowed grass along Vermont highways
MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - If you’ve noticed taller grass along the state’s highways, that’s because of budget cuts.
Gov. Phil Scott said in Tuesday’s news conference that with the first quarter budget, reductions in the VTrans maintenance budget had to be made. He says roadside mowing was the first to go.
Scott says they hope they can start back up soon to make the roads more welcoming for tourists, but at this point, there’s no timeline.
