Newbury residents fume at DCF meeting

NEWBURY—“Can you hear us now?” Newbury residents did not hold back in venting their frustrations at a “listening” hearing on the proposed state-sanctioned juvenile detention center.
After a site visit, Dr. Harry Chen, the newly appointed interim commissioner of the Vermont Department of Children and Families, met with Newbury residents at a 4 p.m. meeting on Dec. 6. Though the meeting was facilitated by Lt. Gov. Molly Gray, the person on the hot seat was Chen.
