HINESBURG, Vt. (AP) - Voters in the Vermont community of Hinesburg will consider a $1.5 million bond vote on Election Day to finance water system upgrades.

Vermont Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/1sRduOk) the bond would provide for two new wells, as well as a pump house and filtration system.

A local pamphlet explains the current wells aren’t meeting demand. It also says the current water sources contain hard water minerals and traces of MTBE, indicating gasoline contamination near the wells.

Meetings on the proposal are scheduled at Town Hall at 7 p.m. on Oct. 20 and Nov. 3.
