Constable & Animal Control Officer Vacancies

The Town of East Montpelier is currently seeking to fill vacancies in the first constable position and both the lead and assistant animal control officer positions.

 

East Montpelier First Constable

After more than eleven years of deeply appreciated service to the Town of East Montpelier as both the elected First Constable and appointed lead Animal Control Officer, Sandy Conti has decided to step down from both positions. The town is now seeking candidates for the First Constable position (the ACO position is being recruited separately, but the same person serving in both positions as Sandy did will be considered). Years ago the town voted to prohibit constables from exercising any law enforcement authority. By statute (24 V.S.A. §1936a) the official duties are limited to the:

• Service of civil or criminal process, under 12 V.S.A. §691;
• Destruction of animals, in accordance with 20 V.S.A. chapter 193;
• Killing of injured deer, under 10 V.S.A. §4749;
• Provision of assistance to the health officer in the discharge of the health officer’s duties, under 18 V.S.A. §617;
• Service as a Criminal Division of the Superior Court officer, under 24 V.S.A. §296; and,
• Removal of disorderly people from town meeting, under 17 V.S.A. §2659.

This position receives a stipend of between $1,000 and $1,500 per year. If you would like to be considered for this position or simply want more information, please contact or send a letter of interest to:

Bruce Johnson
East Montpelier Town Administrator
PO Box 157
East Montpelier, VT 05651
(802) 223-3313 x 204
eastmontadmin@comcast.net

Candidates must be legally qualified voters in East Montpelier. The Selectboard will consider the applicants at its July 1, 2019 meeting. Any appointment will be for the remainder of Sandy’s one-year term, through 2020 Town Meeting Day.

 

East Montpelier Animal Control Officers

Soon after Sandy Conti stepped down as our lead animal control officer, our assistant ACO, Elliott Morse, also resigned. Hence, the town is now seeking candidates for both ACO positions. The main ACO duty is the enforcement of the town’s animal control ordinance. Animal Control Officers are also responsible for capturing and impounding dangerous or stray domestic animals, investigating cases of animal cruelty, and enforcing licensing laws.

We’re looking for people who are comfortable with animals, great at communicating with people from all walks of life, and are effective problem solvers. The Animal Control Officer role is all about helping animals and people co-exist in our community, and giving a helping hand to those who need it. That could mean helping a community member to understand their responsibility for following the animal control ordinance, it could mean getting a stray dog to safety, it could mean trapping a cat who has lost her way, and it could mean working with neighbors to resolve a complaint about animals. If you believe you have the skill set to help our town in this way, please contact or send a letter of interest to:

Bruce Johnson
East Montpelier Town Administrator
PO Box 157
East Montpelier, VT 05651
(802) 223-3313 x 204

The lead ACO receives a stipend of $1,000; the assistant ACO receives a stipend of $500.

2019 Listers Notice to Taxpayers

On May 30, 2019 the East Montpelier Board of Listers lodged the 2019 Grand List with the Town Clerk.

2019 Listers Notice to Taxpayers

The Grand List contains the listing of all taxable properties in the town along with the current assessment of each property. The lodging of this list opens a two-week window in which taxpayers can grieve their current property assessment. Taxpayers whose assessment changed during the past year will receive direct notice of the change and right to grieve. All taxpayers, however, have the right to grieve during this period.

32 V.S.A. §4111(g) reads as follows:

A person who feels aggrieved by the action of the listers and desires to be heard by them, shall, on or before the day of the grievance meeting, file with them his objections in writing and may appear at such grievance meeting in person or by his agents or attorneys. Upon the hearing of such grievance the parties thereto may submit such documentary or sworn evidence as shall be pertinent thereto.

The grievance hearing will be held on Thursday, June 13, 2019 at the East Montpelier Town Office from 9:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Grievances can be submitted in writing to the listers on or before the date of the grievance hearing. You may call (223-3313) or come into the East Montpelier Town Office between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9:00 a.m. to noon on Friday to make an appointment to present your grievance in person.

April 9, 2019 Special School Meeting

You almost certainly noticed that there were a number of normal voted items missing from the school portion of Town Meeting this year, both on the Australian Ballot side and on the floor. In particular, there were no votes on the U-32 and EMES FY2020 budgets. That is about to be remedied.

Both the East Montpelier Elementary School District and the U-32 School District have called special school district meetings for Tuesday, April 9, 2019. There will be an Australian Ballot vote on both the EMES budget and the U-32 budget & regular items in the EMES library from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. There will also be a standard school meeting at 5:30 p.m. in the EMES gymnasium to handle floor vote items.

Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey

The Town of East Montpelier, with the assistance of the Central VT Regional Planning Commission, is in the process of updating its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan helps guide the proactive (we hope) efforts to improve the town’s capacity to withstand calamitous events, such as the 2011 storms that resulted in over $300,000 worth of damage to the town’s infrastructure. The existence of a FEMA-approved plan opens up hazard mitigation grant opportunities and decreases the town share component of federal (generally FEMA) & state funding for repairs from events that warrant federal disaster declarations.

An important part of hazard mitigation plan development is community involvement/feedback — we need your input! Our first such public engagement effort is a short survey on various plan elements. You can access the survey either from the link below or by opening the notice, which contains both the direct link and a QR code for smart phone use.
