Congratulations to returning and newly elected and appointed VLCT members for 2020!
Vermont town meeting is direct democracy practiced in its purest form. It is the key to town government, as voters assemble to discuss issues, debate budgets, air grievances, elect officers, and determine the town and school district business for the coming year. Town Meeting has passed for most towns but that doesn’t mean the work is over. We have revised our annual (Post-Town Meeting Process Info Sheet) to assist with your municipal post-town meeting processes.
The Municipal Assistance Center (MAC) maintains a comprehensive set of Town Meeting Resources including general information, models and templates, and FAQs on a variety of Town Meeting topics. Please refer to our downloadable town meeting resources at the bottom of this page.
MAC is also available to assist town officials with any town meeting and post-town meeting related questions regarding their roles and responsibilities. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-649-7915.
