    BURLINGTON ó The Burlington City Council is voting on a deal that would transfer ownership of a downtown parking lot to Vermontís Champlain College, which plans to build apartment-style housing on the site for about 300 students.

    The council is scheduled to vote tonight on whether to proceed with the $1.1 million deal for what is now a parking lot at St. Paul and King streets.

    Champlain owns the adjacent property. The college would like to begin work this fall. Construction could begin in January.
