Jim Harrison “Office Hours”

Or perhaps more aptly “dump and donuts” will take place at the following times and locations:

Saturday, September 21
8:30 – 10:30 am – Bridgewater Transfer Station

Saturday, September 28
8:30 – 10:30 am – Chittenden Transfer Station

Saturday, October 5
8:30 – 10:30 am – Killington Transfer Station

Thursday, September 26
9:00 – 11:00 am – Mendon Town Office

I encourage members of the district (Bridgewater, Chittenden, Killington and Mendon) to stop by during one of the times above to provide input on State issues of importance to you or just to say Hi. Feedback and suggestions to move Vermont forward are always welcome.

Vermont has a citizen legislature, with state representatives and senators being part time positions. Most have other occupations they work around or take a leave from when the legislature is in session from January to May or are otherwise retired from their careers. And unless they are the House Speaker or Senate Pro Tem, they do not have offices or personal staff.

A citizen legislature (in my view) helps to keep our elected representatives more accessible to the districts they represent. Fall is a good time to start planning for the upcoming session with the sharing of ideas and concerns. I hope you will stop by during one of the above “Office Hours” or email me at

RE: Lottery for Maple Logs (possibly some Birch)

The Town of Mendon has contracted with Trees, Inc. to remove two large maple and some large limbs from a birch tree at the Tenney Cemetery on Meadowlake Drive. The wood could be processed for fire wood.  It is expected there could be one to two truck loads of logs from this project.  The Selectboard is allowing interested parties to sign up for a lottery to receive the wood at no charge to the property owner.  The names will be drawn at random with the first name receiving the first available truck load, the second name receiving the second truck load (if available) and so on.  The wood will be delivered by Trees, Inc.  Property Owner must express interest to the Town of Mendon Selectboard via written notice or email to by June 25, 2019.


  1. Must be a Mendon Property Owner to enter the lottery.
  2. Delivery address must be a property within the Town of Mendon. The town reserves the right to deny delivery based on location and access to the property.
  3. Property Owner must agree to take the entire truck and will not be able to accept only a partial load or certain type of wood.
  4. Log lengths and size will vary.  The trees are 2’ in diameter.
  5. Schedule for delivery will be determined by the progress of the project which is based on scheduling by the Town of Mendon with Trees, Inc. The Town will provide at least 24 hours notice for delivery.
  6. Notice to enter the lottery must be in writing with the Property Owner’s name, address, email and phone number as well as a clear description of the delivery address and location where the logs will be delivered. Example: “Joe Smith, 2282 US Route 4, Mendon, VT 05701,, 802-775-XXXX, deliver to 2282 US Route 4, at the end of the driveway to the left side of the garage.” The Road Commissioner will inspect the location for delivery if he is not already familiar with the location.
