The VLCT 2018-2019 Municipal Calendar contains an incorrect date concerning the last day that supplemental town meeting petitions may be returned to the town clerk. The Municipal Calendar mistakenly states that January 21 is the last day that supplemental petitions may be filed with the town clerk when in fact the last day to file supplemental petitions is Tuesday January 22, 2019.
This is because January 21 is Martin Luther King Day, a legal State holiday. Vermont law says the deadline for filing is automatically extended to 5:00 p.m. the next day if the last day for filing falls on a “Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday”. 17 V.S.A. § 2103(13). Because January 21 is MLK Day and a legal Vermont State holiday, the date to file the supplemental petitions extends to that Tuesday, January 22.
