Town Vacancies

It has become necessary to inform everyone of the dire need the town has for people to fill important vacant positions.  There are currently over eleven positions open that will have a great impact on the efficiency of running town business and maintaining important information and records.  Every position in the town, whether elected or appointed, effects every Woodford taxpayer, but especially the Woodford voters.  This is a great opportunity to share your opinion, knowledge and expertise.  These positions have always been held by the local residents and voters.  If there is no interest the town may have to look into hiring outside professionals and risk losing that local feel of town government that has always been a part of this town.  Many people, past and present, have shown dedication and commitment over the years, but now the town is in need of people to share the responsibility.  Please contact the town office at 442-4895 or via email at woodfordvt@comcast.net if you are interested.
