Wallingford’s Highway Department personnel would like to remind property owners Vermont Statute, Title 19, Section 702 defines the highway right-of-way as follows: “the right-of-way for each highway and trail shall be three rods wide unless otherwise properly recorded.” A rod is a unit of measure equaling 16.5 feet, so the assumed minimum width of the right-of-way is 49.5 feet. This total minimum width extends evenly (24.75 feet) on both sides of the highway centerline. Please bear this in mind before building a fence, rock wall or anything within the right-of-way otherwise you may be asked to move it if it interferes with highway maintenance or projects.

Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos is pleased to announce the dates and locations for his fifth biennial Transparency Tour. Throughout late October and November Secretary Condos will travel to several locations across Vermont to provide training and facilitate discussion on Vermont’s transparency laws; Vermont’s Public Records Act, and Open Meeting Law. Government officials at all levels, from local volunteer board and commission members, to elected officials and state employees, and interested members of the public, are invited and encouraged to attend. For the first time, this year’s Transparency Tour will include an overview of Vermont’s election procedures, and the steps the Secretary of State’s office is taking to ensure the integrity and security of our elections, titled “Defending Our Democracy.” With the 2020 elections just around the corner, Vermonters increasingly want to know that their votes are safe, secure and will count on Election Day. As a longtime proponent of transparency and openness in government, Secretary Condos looks forward to engaging attendees in an informative discussion on the requirements of government officials, and the rights of Vermont citizens. “The public’s right to know is enshrined in our Vermont Constitution. Vermonters deserve openness and transparency in government. By educating municipal and state employees, elected officials, and engaged residents on the requirements of government under Vermont’s Open Meeting Laws and the Public Records Act, I hope to help government officials of all stripes better serve Vermonters.” – Secretary of State Jim Condos Rutland -November 5th at Rutland Free Library, Fox Room, 10 Court Street 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
