"Town Meeting Day continues to provide Vermonters with the opportunity to connect with their local government and guide decisions in their towns," says VPR’s News Director Ross Sneyd. "VPR's Public Post was built on that tradition and is designed to help Vermoneters stay in touch with their governments throughout the year not just at town meeting."
While you're at Public Post, browse local government minutes, including many Town Meeting Day warnings, from more than 70 Vermont cities and towns. You can search the minutes, comment on the minutes, and share what you find.
