  • Jericho Foothills Bond Vote

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.
    The Jericho Fire District #1 Prudential Committee will be asking the Foothills residents to vote on a $66,000 bond from the Vermont Drinking Water State Revolving Fund. The monies are needed to pay for the new greensand filter, associated support structure and other miscellaneous upgrades to the filtration system that were installed last summer. The bond is necessary as JFD #1 does not have enough reserves to cover the cost of the project. The revolving fund program provides low cost financing to municipal water systems for capital improvements.
    More details will be forthcoming in the near future. There will be an information meeting on December 12 and the vote day itself is December 19, 2022.
    For more information, please contact:

  • Posting Land

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

    Jericho Residents interested in posting their land for no hunting, shooting, trapping or fishing need to complete a form at the Jericho Town Clerk's Office. The form is in triplicate and one copy will go to the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department so that the game warden can enforce it. The cost is $5 , payable to the Town of Jericho and good for a year from when it is signed by the applicant and received by the Town Clerk Office. To reach a Game Warden, call the Williston Barracks non-emergency number, 878-7111 to speak with a dispatcher. The signs can be bought at a local hardware store. The Town Office also has "safety zone" signs that are supplied by Vermont Fish & Wildlife. The "safety zone" sign will alert a hunter that they are within 500 feet of a dwelling.

    Green Mountain Passport Day at Jericho Town Hall

    Thursday May 20th we will be outside the Town Hall (67 Vermont Route 15) to issue Green Mountain Passports to Jericho Residents from 9am to 4pm. No appointment needed. The cost is $2 and the passport is good for lifetime. You must be 62 years old and a resident of Vermont or a Veteran to be eligible for the Green Mountain Passport. This Green Mountain Passport allows for free admission to State Parks and State sponsored events for a lifetime.

    If you applied for a Green Mountain Passport from Jericho in the past but have lost the card or it went through the wash. We can re-issue a replacement card to you at no cost. We have a file of past applications.

    You need to come in person and you need to bring your Vermont Driver’s License. You need to swear under oath that you are 62 or older and a resident of Jericho, Vermont. For Veterans, there should be a Veteran designation on your Vermont Driver’s License. Thank you to those of you who asked about the program this winter but opted to wait until nicer weather. We look forward to seeing you outside the Jericho Town Hall on Thursday May 20th 9am to 4pm. I believe the State Parks will start charging admission Memorial Day Weekend.
