You can also drop payments in the convenient blue drop box next to the handicap ramp or in the back door mail slot (can be a tight fit). If you drop the payment off and want a receipt, remember to include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. You can also mail in your payment, but if you use USPS, please mail early and make sure you get the envelope postmarked.

On March 21, 2022, the East Montpelier Selectboard adopted a resolution urging all EM residents to be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus as well as encouraging businesses and other entities with public-facing aspects to implement face covering policies of their choice. See:

March 21, 2022 EM SB Resolution on Face Coverings & Vaccination

 

Also on March 21, 2022, the Selectboard rescinded its order regarding municipal operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The East Montpelier town office building is open, with some restrictions, to the public and committee meetings can once again be held in-person. We are still limiting access for land records research to a one-at-a-time basis, with appointments encouraged but not required. Mask use at this time is on a personal choice basis.
