The Mendon Selectboard will conduct a Public Hearing regarding the updated Mendon Town Plan, Monday, October 28, 2019 6:30 pm, Mendon Town Clerk’s Office 2282 US-4, Mendon, VT. Thanks in part to a Municipal Planning Grant, the Mendon Planning Commission has worked with the Rutland Regional Planning Commission to comprehensively update the Mendon Town Plan. The proposed Mendon Town Plan has been updated to better conform to Vermont State Statute (24 VSA Chapter 117) and to better serve as a guidance document for the next eight years. Copies of the Draft Town Plan are available at the Town Clerk’s Office, at the Mendon Town Garage, and by clicking the link below

Jim Harrison “Office Hours”

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 JHarrison@leg.state.vt.us.
