A new Vernon website!

Hello world, Vernon is back online!

This unofficial town website is run by volunteers, and you can help! We need people who can:

  • Report on town meetings and events
  • Help post agendas, warnings and meeting minutes
  • Keep our directory pages up-to-date and complete
  • Maintain listings in our calendar of events
  • Help out on the tech side of the website

Interested? Contact Bronna Zlochiver ( or Martin Langeveld (, founders of this website.

We request town boards and committees to send us minutes, agendas and warnings for posting on this site, and we invite clubs, organizations and businesses to send us news and event information.

We can also use financial support to pay for the costs of maintaining the site — if you have a business and want to place an ad on the site, please be in touch.

We would like to stress that, as it says on every page, this site is not the official Town of Vernon website, which was taken offline in 2014. Therefore, NOTHING posted on this site serves is an official Town of Vernon communication. Notices of meetings posted here do NOT constitute legal warnings nor does anything else on this site fulfill ANY legal requirements.

September is budget season

The Vernon Selectboard has announced it will hold meetings about the next fiscal year’s budgets with town committees and departments during September. The Board Meeting has set the budget meetings starting for Sept. 8, Sept.15, Sept. 22 and Sept. 29.

All of the meeting dates are on Tuesdays and will start at 6:30 p.m., with the aim to finish meetings by 8:30 p.m.. Department heads and committee chairs should be in touch with Selectboard Secretary Catrina Lawley to arrange a time to meet with the Selectboard. They plan to handle several committees in one night and the larger departments might require the full meeting time. Catrina will do her best to accommodate everything but will be grouping departments and committees together to get the best results.

You can reach Catrina at (802) 257-0292 ext 20 or
