As a VLCT member, you can help set VLCT’s municipal legislative priorities for the 2019-2020 legislative biennium. Please take time to discuss the attached proposed priorities with your local legislative body. Designate a delegate to the annual meeting to vote for your town (form enclosed).

Attached are the recommendations of VLCT’s five committees for the 2019-2020 VLCT Municipal Policy. Please review the proposals at a council or board meeting before the VLCT Annual Meeting before the VLCT Annual Meeting taking place Wednesday, October 3, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in South Burlington.

Once adopted at Town Fair, the policy will guide the actions of VLCT Advocacy in 2019-2020 biennium in the areas of transportation and water quality funding, economic development, addressing the opioid crisis, marijuana regulation, water quality, and more.

Do these policies represent the most significant issues for your municipality? What should be included that is not? Please take time to propose amendments if your city or town believes a significant issue is not addressed.

This platform of legislative initiatives will be debated at VLCT’s annual Business Meeting at the DoubleTree by Hilton in South Burlington, on Wednesday, October 3, 2018, beginning at approximately 12:30 p.m. Please join us!

Return any proposals of amendment on the attached form by Friday, August 31, 2018. The entire draft Municipal Policy and proposal amendment and voting delegate forms are available for download at the bottom of this page.

The VLCT Board will consider all submitted amendments at its meeting on Thursday, September 6, at the VLCT offices. Any Board-endorsed amendments will be included in the draft policy that is distributed to the members at the annual meeting. VLCT members may also offer substantive amendments in writing ahead of the meeting or from the floor. Grammar and syntax corrections are discouraged as we will do our best to  make those corrections prior to finalizing the policy.

Please email Karen Horn, Director of Public Policy and Advocacy, at khorn@vlct.org with any questions. Thank you!
