The Vermont state legislature amended the Open Meeting Law in its last legislative session. For more information about the changes to the law, please review a primer put together by the Vermont League of Cities and Towns. Both the Burlington Free Press and the Valley News have written about the impact of this change on Vermont towns.
Over the past several months, the Selectboard has been working to encourage greater utilization of the website as a communication tool between residents and their town government. We are aware of the new posting requirements mandated by the amended Open Meeting Law. We are evaluating how best to come into compliance while maintaining the town website. We have taken the website down, but this will be an interim measure. The Selectboard takes the letter and intent of the Open Meeting Law seriously and remains committed to transparency and enhanced communication. Please feel free to contact any of us with any questions or concerns you may have.Thank you.
