In June 2017, East Montpelier was awarded transportation funding to conduct a safety study of the Towne Hill, Gallison Hill, and Brazier Roads intersection area. Lamoureux & Dickinson Consulting Engineers and Broadreach Planning & Design are the consultants performing the study. This is very much a fast-tracked project — the study will be completed by the end of the year. There will be a number of public feedback events, the next of which will be held on October 16, 2017, 8:00 p.m. at the town office building as part of the Selectboard meeting. Materials will be posted here as they are available.

On August 14, 2017 the East Montpelier Selectboard appointed Rosie Laquerre, a former EMES board member and WCSU employee, as the town’s first Selectboard-appointed clerk under the governance charter amendments approved at 2017 Town Meeting. Ms. Laquerre’s first day in the office will be September 5, 2017.

The board thanks the Town Clerk Selection Committee, led by Chair Karen Saudek, for its excellent service in the nearly-three month process to find Rosie. The committee’s job was to solicit and evaluate the applicants, and then recommend qualified candidates for the Selectboard to consider.

The board would especially like to thank CJ Flynn, the current Interim Town Clerk through September 1, 2017, for his gracious acceptance of the two-month interim position after his elected office was eliminated by the charter change. Good luck in your future endeavors, CJ!
