Town Charter

East Montpelier Charter

At 2017 Town Meeting voters approved a series of amendments to the town charter and also approved the Plan of Merger, which was treated as an element of the bill containing the East Montpelier Charter amendments, to essentially merge East Montpelier Fire District #1 back into the town. These voter-approved changes to the town charter were approved by the VT Legislature as bill H.527 and signed into law by Governor Scott on June 5, 2017. Portions of the new law went into effect immediately and all aspects became effective on July 1, 2017. The enacted bill became Act M-12. The East Montpelier Charter is codified at 24Appendix V.S.A. Chapter 114E.
