As of Tuesday, March 17, 2020 the East Montpelier Town Office Building is closed to the public until further notice. The office staff is still on duty and ready to provide service on your behalf, just with very limited in-person options at this point. Please contact us by phone or email at the options listed below. Regular office hours will remain the same: M-Th 9-5; F 9-noon.

People needing access to the town records will be required to make appointments. Access will be controlled by Town Clerk Rosie Laquerre. No more than one person will be allowed access at a time. Due to Governor Scott’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order direct access to the town records is currently limited. Please contact Town Clerk Rosie Laquerre for further information.

Non-essential, indoor, in-person town committee/board meetings & events are also canceled until further notice. The Selectboard will meet as necessary. The public will be encouraged to attend those meetings remotely — options for doing that will be provided on the town’s website and on the posted meeting notices. Note: On March 30, 2020 the Selectboard altered the committee meeting restriction to allow for remote-only (with participation options for the public) meetings. On June 1, 2020 the board added the option to hold meetings outdoors. You can see the updated Selectboard order here:
