In accordance with 24 V.S.A. § 961(a), the Selectboard of the Town of Halifax hereby gives notice of a vacancy created by resignation in the office of Selectboard effective June 27, 2024. The Selectboard, pursuant to 24 V.S.A. § 963, made an appointment to fill this vacancy at its meeting on June 27, 2024. The person appointed will serve until a town election is had.*


CITIZENS’ RIGHT TO PETITION FOR VOTE: Titles 17 V.S.A. § 2643 and 24 V.S.A. § 963 grant citizens the right to petition for a vote to replace the Selectboard’s appointee at a special town meeting. If a special town meeting is called, the newly elected town officer will remain in office for the balance of the unexpired term. If a special town meeting is not called, the Selectboard’s appointee will remain in office until the next annual town meeting. To exercise this right, citizens must present a petition calling for an election for this office signed by five percent of the legal voters of the Town to the Town Clerk prior to the next annual Town Meeting.
