E-911 Addressing

Even if you rely on a Post Office box for mail delivery, it is very important that your street address be posted on your property and visible from the road so that fire, police, or ambulance responders can find your location in an emergency. In a situation where every minute counts, you don't want the Mad River Valley Ambulance Service to waste precious seconds trying to guess where the right location is and possibly going to the wrong one.

Addressing Guidelines

Your new locatable address should be posted at the property in accordance with the guidelines adopted by the Selectboard as part of the Town's Street Naming and Addressing Ordinance as follows:

  1. The number should be affixed to the structure in a manner which is legible and distinguishable from the road or driveway on which the structure is located. If the structure is located in such a way that the number cannot be easily seen from the road, then a sign or number post should also be used at the driveway entrance in such a way that it can be easily seen from the road. Rural mail boxes may be used for posting the new [or existing] address if located at the driveway entrance and are on the same side of the road.
  2. Address numbers should be a minimum of three inches (3") in height, and should be of a contrasting color to the background on which are applied. Any other numbers on the building which may be mistaken for or confused with the address number should be removed from the building.
  3. Multiple unit structures should display the building number in such a manner as to be visible from the road as outlined above, and in addition, unit numbers should be clearly placed at the entrance of each unit.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR LANDLORDS: If you have tenants at the above location, it is important that you notify them of the new locatable address.

CONFIDENTIALITY OPTION: You have the option to keep your name and the street address number of your property from being linked in a municipal public record. In order to exercise this option, you must complete a Confidentiality Option Form available at the Town Office, and must provide an alternate mailing address (such as a Post Office Box) for official municipal correspondence.

Justices of the Peace

General Duties and Responsibilities

There are basically five categories of responsibilities for Justices of the Peace:

  1. Elections.  Justices of the peace are members of the Board of Civil Authority (BCA).  Members of the BCA serve as election officials at town or statewide elections.  Justices also are responsible for delivering absentee ballots to voters at election time.
  2. Tax Abatement and Appeals.  Justices of the peace sit as members of the town board for abatement of taxes to determine whether a taxpayer's tax obligation should be forgiven under certain circumstances.  Justices of the peace also serve an important role in the town's tax appeal process.  As a member of the board of civil authority, justices sit to hear and decide appeals when citizens do not agree with the final decision of the listers.
  3. Marriages and Civil Unions.  Justices of the peace may also solemnize marriages and may certify civil unions in Vermont.
  4. Oaths and Notary.  Justices of the peace may also administer oaths in all cases where an oath is required, unless the law makes a different provision.  A justice of the peace is a notary public ex officio and has all the acknowledgment powers of a notary public.
  5. Magistrate.  Justices of the peace may also serve as a magistrate when so commissioned by the Supreme Court.

For more information, check out The Justice of the Peace Guide, published by Deborah L. Markowitz, Secretary of State, 2010.

Justices of the Peace

Because Justices of the Peace run for election with a political party designation on the ballot, parties are indicated next to the name below by a letter indicating Democratic, Independent, Progressive or Republican. The term of office is two years and elections are held on even numbered years.

Constable

At Town Meeting on March 2, 2004, voters approved the following article by Australian ballot:
ARTICLE 13: Will the Town vote to fill the office of Constable by appointment of the Selectboard rather than by election, in accordance with State statutes, Title 17 V.S.A. §2651a.
The vote was 358 in favor adn 197 opposed.

Excerpt from 2004 Town Report: Town Constable - The Selectboard is placing an article on the Warning concerning the appointment of the Constable.  This is currently an elected position, but statute allows voters to delegate this responsibility to the Selectboard.  The Board is anticipating the future transition of personnel in our traffic patrol program through the Sheriff's Department and would like to have the flexibility to continue to coordinate these two roles.  The office of elected Constable, while largely ceremonial and outdated, comes with law enforcement authority under state law regardless of whether the person has any training.  By changing to an appointed Constable, there is a requirement for state certification as a part-time police officer in order to exercise law enforcement authority, and the Selectboard would be able to conduct an appropriate selection process and background check.  Current Constable John Southwick has recommended the change to an appointed office.  By law, this article must be voted by Australian ballot.

Duties

The Constable's duties are outlined in VSA Title 24, Chapter 55, section 1936a as follows:

(a) Subsection (a) effective until July 1, 2010; see also subsection (a) below. A town may vote at a special or annual town meeting:

(1) to prohibit constables from exercising any law enforcement authority; or

(2) to prohibit constables from exercising any law enforcement authority without having successfully completed a course of training under chapter 151 of Title 20.

(a) Subsection (a) effective July 1, 2010; see also subsection (a) above. A town may vote at a special or annual town meeting to prohibit constables from exercising any law enforcement authority.

(b) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a) of this section, constables may perform the following duties:

(1) the service of civil or criminal process, under 12 V.S.A. § 691;

(2) destruction of animals, in accordance with the provisions of 20 V.S.A., chapter 193;

(3) the killing of injured deer, under 10 V.S.A. § 4749;

(4) provision of assistance to the health officer in the discharge of the health officer's duties, under 18 V.S.A. § 617;

(5) service as a district court officer, under section 296 of this title;

(6) removal of disorderly people from town meeting, under 17 V.S.A. § 2659; and

(7) collection of taxes, when no tax collector is elected, as provided under section 1529 of this title.

(c) A constable who is not prohibited from exercising law enforcement authority under subsection (a) of this section may transport a person arrested by the constable for a violation of 23 V.S.A. § 1201 (DUI) to a police department outside the town for the purpose of DUI processing and may complete the processing if he or she has been certified by the Vermont criminal justice training council to do so.

(d) A municipal legislative body may vote to allow a constable elected or appointed in another municipality to exercise law enforcement authority in its municipality, provided that:

(1) the constable is not prohibited from exercising law enforcement authority under subsection (a) of this section;

(2) the constable has completed the training requirements for a full-time or part-time law enforcement officer under section 2358 of Title 20; and

(3) the exercise of law enforcement authority is conducted in accordance with policies and procedures adopted by the legislative body establishing the circumstances under which the authority may be exercised.

According to Title 12, chapter 25, § 691, "Sheriffs and constables may serve either civil or criminal process, anywhere within the state and returnable to any court."
