The Richmond Parade & Fireworks Committee held a public planning meeting a couple of weeks ago. The meeting was well attended and it seems like there is enough interest and volunteers to continue with the July 4th celebration in Richmond this year.

However, we still need many more volunteers to get involved and make a commitment to help out. Whether you would like to help out on the day of the event, or if you are able to help with planning ahead of time, any level of participation and time commitment is welcome.

For those of you who are interested but were unable to attend the meeting, we have set up an online signup form. If you have something to suggest or offer that isn’t on the sign up form, please add it in the comments. Please share the form with anyone you think might be interested in helping out: https://goo.gl/forms/30r5JvozAlVBJ5ex1

The new rewrite of the Richmond Town Plan is up!

We want to see as many people as possible show up to this hearing! In January, we expect the Selectboard to also have a hearing but early input is extremely important.

Update October 23rd 4pm:  Chief Buck continues to improve with medical treatment. He is alert and doing much better. He may come home by the end of the week, but it will be some time before he is back to work. Thank you all for your continued well-wishes!

 

Update October 22nd 3pm:  Chief Buck is out of intensive care, in a regular room (amazing news!)- but he’s not ready to come home yet. The doctors are still working on treatment options, so while Chief continues to improve – he’s awake and talking with his friends and family – there’s more work to do by medical center staff. Such a terrific improvement, and so much hope! Thank you all for your supportive comments over the past few days.

 

Update October 21st 3pm:  Chief Buck continues to improve.  He is undergoing diagnostic tests to determine a course of treatment.  The situation continues to be serious but we’re encouraged by his progress today.  I cannot be more specific than that due to respect for his privacy, but the hospital is taking very good care of him.

 

On Friday, October 20th, Police Chief Alan Buck joined the pursuit of burglary suspects as they fled an earlier stop in Jericho, through Richmond and into Huntington.  While in pursuit, Chief Buck suffered a critical medical emergency, but was able to safely move to the side of the road and park his vehicle.  An officer from another agency assisted Chief Buck while other officers continued the pursuit of the suspects, who were eventually caught in another town.  Richmond Rescue was able to quickly respond and the best efforts were made to assist Chief Buck.

Chief Buck is at the University of Vermont Medical Center getting the best care he can right now.  He is with his family and many of his law enforcement colleagues.  I cannot go into specifics about his condition other than to say that it is a serious medical event, and we here in the offices are willing to do anything we can to assist him and his family during his recovery.  Please, do not email for updates, I will post information as I am able to.
