FRANKLIN, Vt. (AP) -- Two top officials with federal Customs and Border Protection are going to be in Vermont for a hearing on a plan to build a new border station at the tiny Vermont crossing with Quebec known as Morses Line.
Customs and Border Protection officials Trent Frazier and Jon Batt will be at the Franklin Town Hall from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.
They will provide information on the current modernization plan for the Morses Line Station, which substantially reduces the size of earlier proposals. They will also answer questions from community members.
CBP is planning to upgrade the port of entry facilities at the little-used Morses Line, but a local dairy farmer says the plan will take too much of a valuable hayfield.
