ALBURGH – The annual Alburgh Village Meeting is expected to be postponed when the village trustees meet on Tuesday evening.
The village – like other communities in the wake of deadly COVID-19 virus – believes it needs to delay the May 5 annual meeting and vote, Trustee Chair Cheryl Dunn told The Islander.
She said a formal vote by the trustees is needed to pull the plug on the meeting that was legally warned for May 5 at the municipal offices on North Main Street.
The trustees plan a brief meeting at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday to approve the delay and also cover a few other pressing issues, including an update on the water tower, Dunn said.
No new annual meeting date is proposed. Much will depend on Gov. Phil Scott’s relaxation of his Executive Orders due to COVID-19, Dunn said.
The annual meeting is expected to include election of a village clerk, a treasurer, a trustee, a delinquent tax collector and two auditors. The ballot items also will include raising $22,985 in local taxes to cover annual expenses, including streetlights.
