VFDA Opposes Restrictions in Shelburne

The Vermont Fuel Dealers Association says it provided additional comments at the Shelburne Select Board meeting this week in response to an ordinance that will be enforced in October. VFDA is working with the Shelburne town manager and Select Board to ensure there are no interruptions of deliveries of diesel fuel, heating oil, kerosene, or propane in Shelburne, the association reports in the Aug. 25 issue of The Fuel Line, its newsletter. “Under the regulation as passed, there are significant limits on fuel storage by residents and businesses,” the newsletter reports. VFDA says it is urging the Select Board to rescind the ordinance or make significant changes. This is the second ordinance passed by the town of Shelburne this month that impacts VFDA members, The Fuel Line notes. The first limits the gross weight of fuel delivery trucks on Shelburne town roads to 55,000 pounds.
