The Selectboard has voted to suspend traditional Town Meeting in 2022 due to the spread of COVID-19. The Vermont Legislature passed Act 77 which allowed the Selectboard to vote to use Australian ballot (paper ballot) for Town Meeting in 2022. Therefore, all Town Meeting items will be moved to Australian ballot, and the traditional Town Meeting format has been cancelled in 2022.

This page provides information related to the FY23 budget which will be on the ballot. Informational meetings regarding the budget and other items on the ballot will be held on Tuesday, February 1 and Monday, February 28, each beginning at 7pm. Both of these meetings will be held virtually with no in person meeting location. See the Town Meeting Warning for more information on how to join these meetings.
