BRATTLEBORO—February 3, 2019
Wendy M. Levy
The Selectboard approved the warnings for the 2019 Annual Town and Town School District meetings, and Representative Town Meeting, at the January 29 special board meeting.
The Board made one minor amendment to Article 23, which addresses the limited self-governance pilot program developed by the Vermont League of Cities and Towns (VLCT) for consideration by the Vermont state legislature.
If passed, it will signify the Selectboard and RTM supports a limited program for some Vermont towns to operate under home rule, allowing them to pass ordinances that are not prohibited by state statute. Currently, Vermont municipalities are limited by Dillon’s Rule to only create town laws addressed in statute.
The town’s Annual Town and Town School District meetings are held on March 5, and RTM is on March 23.
