  • Town Administrator to Depart

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    The SelectBoard is saddened to announce that the Town Administrator, Todd Odit, has conditionally accepted the offer to become Hinesburg’s first Town Manager. The SelectBoard congratulates him on his new challenge and wishes him well.

    Todd during his tenure brought organization to the Town Hall and helped the Town move forward with the redevelopment of the sawmill property, master planning for roads, bike and pedestrian pathways as well as stormwater and best practices for gravel roads. He has been skilled in securing grants to significantly offset the cost to the Town to put in sidewalks, upgrade roads and stormwater projects contained in the master plans. His leadership also helped the Town respond to windstorm and flooding emergencies and secure FEMA funding. Todd during his 11 years also contributed in a myriad of ways in updating policies, procedures and the organization to facilitate a smooth-running Town Hall.

    The Town has benefitted greatly by his time here. The SelectBoard at its scheduled meeting on March 18, 7pm will discuss transition planning and hiring processes.

    Given the latest restrictions on public gatherings due to community contracted cases of COVID-19 operations at Town Hall have been changed.

    Specifically, starting Wednesday March 18 and until further notice, the Town Hall will be closed to walk-ins. Individuals will need to call or email the appropriate staff person who will then figure out how to assist them remotely. The Town Clerk will be scheduling appointments for anyone that needs to research land records in order to keep the number of people in the office at one time to a minimum. Town staff contact information is below:

    Please be aware that town staff are working to put plans in place in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. Our plans are being guided by the following:

    • slowing the transmission of the virus;
    • continuing essential municipal services and
    • ensuring the safety and health of town employees and our citizens.

    Depending on the severity of this unfolding health crisis, we may need to re-prioritize municipal services which could include postponing, delaying or cancelling some events, meetings or other services due to safety concerns. We appreciate your understanding as we make adjustments in order to provide as many services as we can while balancing the need for staff and community safety. With this in mind, we respectfully ask that if you do your municipal business by phone, email or our drop boxes. We will do our best to accommodate what you need without you having to visit the town hall. Per CDC guidelines.... less contact is better.

    In an effort to keep people safe we have decided to close or limit the following municipal services at this time:

    1. Access to the town hall conference room is eliminated except for essential meetings of municipal bodies, which will be curtailed as much as possible.
    2. No members of the public may visit the Highway Garage.
    3. Most town committee meetings are canceled until further notice.

    As you know, the situation is changing every day and sometimes by the minute. Town staff are not experts on the Coronavirus, thus we are monitoring and following the Vermont Department of Health and CDC recommendations and guidelines for safe operation of our services. For the latest information on the virus, please go to the VT Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) webpages which are updated daily. You can also call 211. If you have questions regarding your health, please call your doctor.
