CANCELED - APRIL 14TH SCHOOL BUDGET REVOTE - CANCELED



Governor Scott has issued a stay at home order effective at 5pm on March 25th, 2020, for all non-essential businesses, in the hopes of slowing down and stopping the spread of the Coronavirus. This means that the Alburgh Town Clerks Office will be closed until April 15th, 2020. The Clerk will be checking emails and phone messages from home and will be collecting the mail on a daily basis. The office will NOT be open to any members of the public.
This also means that the vote originally scheduled for April 14th and the informational meeting scheduled for April 13th, is postponed to a future, yet to be determined date. As soon as the new date is set, that information will be available via the website; www.alburghvt.org as well as via social media (Facebook and Front Porch Forum). The warning will also be in the Islander when the date has been determined.
Please continue to be kind to one another and be patient with the people that must work, the health care providers, the store clerks that are still working and anyone else in an industry that has to stay open through this pandemic.
As always, if you need to contact the Town Clerk, Donna Bohannon, you can reach her at 802-782-4510.
Leave a message if she doesn't answer and she WILL call you back.





If you or someone you know in Alburgh, needs food, medicine or other basic necessities but isn't able to get out to get them or is worried about going out because of the corona virus, please contact the Town Clerks office and let them know. We have a list of people that are willing to help in this time of uncertainty. The phone number that you can call is 802-796-3468 and you can speak with Town Clerk, Donna L. Bohannon or Assistant Town Clerk, Danielle Choiniere. If it is on the weekend or after hours, you can call Donna Bohannon at 802-782-4510, but leave a message if you get a voicemail (service can be difficult at her home). Your contact information will be relayed to someone that has offered to help and they will contact you about your needs. Stay healthy and don't be too proud to ask for help, there are people willing to do just that ..help.




By a unanimous vote of the Selectboard at a special meeting held on 03/18/2020, the regular meetings of the Selectboard will be cancelled until after May 1st. This is based on recommendations from the CDC to minimize the spread of COVID 19. They also voted unanimously to keep the Town office closed to the public until further notice.
With the closure of the office to the public, business is still being conducted. Payments can be made via snail mail or can be placed in the dropbox located on the south side of the building. Payments can also be made via the town website; www.alburghvt.org with a credit or debit card. There is an additional fee associated with the use of a credit/debit card. Up to $113 there is a $3.00 fee and after $113 the fee is 2.65%.
The Selectboard also voted unanimously to waive the $2.00 late fee for dog licenses until after June 1st and tax payments will not be considered delinquent until after May 11th. The Board made this decision with the cooperation and approval of the Delinquent Tax Collector, Terry Tatro. If you have any questions, please contact the Town Clerk at 802-796-3468 or by email at townofalburgh@fairpoint.net.
There will also be changes to how the staff at the Transfer Station handles business. They will be asking that you remain in your vehicle and will handle the trash and other waste for you. They will collect the money from you while you remain in your vehicle. Please be cooperative and respectful as they continue to do an outstanding job while enforcing procedures designed to keep themselves and you as safe and healthy as possible.
The Corona virus has had a greater impact on our daily lives than any of us could have imagined, but with common sense and diligence, we can prevent it from growing more than it already has. Please do your part in preventing the spread of this new contagion by limiting your contact with others. You may not be at risk but there are many that are. People with heart or lung conditions and the elderly are at a greater risk and may suffer dire consequences if exposed.
Please be patient and understanding of the new procedures as we try to limit the spread of this contagion and above all else be considerate of one another and help a neighbor if you see they need it. Supporting one another and kindness will help neutralize the negative effects of this virus.
