The Town Office will be closed to public access for the foreseeable future. We will maintain the usual office hours to answer the phone, respond to e-mails and postal mail. Every attempt will be made to accommodate the needs of our residents.
The Transfer Station will remain open during its normal hours. Patrons are encouraged to practice social distancing and stay home if you are feeling ill.
The highway department will continue to work although the garage will be locked. They will be monitoring their telephone -802-896-6542. They can also be reached by e-mail at email@example.com
The Wardsboro Public Library is closed at least until April 6. Information is available through their website - www.wardsboropubliclibrary.org

Although not needed now, we may be looking for volunteers to deliver food & medicine to those confined at home in our community. Please call the town office if you or someone you know would like to help or needs help.
REGULARLY SCHEDULED MEETINGS
Open Meeting Law 1 V.S.A. 310-314 Vermont’s Open Meeting Law provides that:
“[all meetings of a public body are declared to be open to the public at all times, except as provided in section 313 of this title [on executive sessions].” The intent of the law is to create transparency in government by requiring advance public notice and an opportunity for public participation in governmental decisions. The law generally applies whenever a majority of the members of a municipal board, council, commission, committee, or subcommittee have a conversation or make a decision about municipal business.
