    VERGENNES - Voters in the Vermont city of Vergennes have approved the City Council's decision to support a natural gas pipeline project.

    The vote Tuesday was 345 in favor of the expansion project and 143 against it.

    Vermont Gas serves about 50,000 customers in Franklin and Chittenden counties. It is working to expand service into Addison and Rutland counties through the Addison-Rutland Gas Project.

    The company is looking to deliver natural gas to Vergennes, Middlebury and the International Paper plant across Lake Champlain in Ticonderoga, N.Y.

    The company says the new jobs will be added to its current staff of over 100, and will include technicians, dispatchers and customer service representatives.
