The supporting documentation for the meeting is massive and would have to be divided into sections to be small enough to upload. For that reason, only the agenda is here.
Due to construction in the council chambers the meeting has been moved to the Board of Education’s Administration Building at 30 Park Street, third floor. Enter the building from the rear parking lot.
This includes the supporting documentation that town councilors receive. This information is never posted on-line, neither with the agendas nor with the subsequent minutes of the meeting.
Meetings are on the third floor of town hall (Memorial Building) beginning at 7:30 P.M. Meetings begin with a citizens’ forum at which residents can speak to the Council about any town issue.

Asphalt reclaiming pulverizes the asphalt in place all the way down through the sub-base mixing the two layers. The existing asphalt is turned to dust, left in place and becomes the new sub-base. This material is then graded and compacted to get ready for the installation of asphalt.
Milling and resurfacing can only be done if the damage is minimal.
Chipseal is pressing gravel into newly-applied liquid asphalt.
From the Journal Inquirer on May 9th:
“To begin the fundraising, the Republican Town Committee will host a dinner at Adams Mill in Manchester at $60 per ticket, with about $28 of each to be donated to the museum, Kaplan said.”
The correction appeared on May 17th:
The Vernon Town Council passed, with only stylistic changes:
An Ordinance Establishing Citation Procedures and Fines for Zoning Violations
An Ordinance Amending The International Property Maintenance Code As Previously Adopted
An Ordinance Amending Code Sec. 3-4 Vacant and Blighted Buildings
The Zoning Enforcement Officer rather than the Building Official is the responsible position for building and zoning violations. The blight ordinance has been expanded to cover occupied buildings. The town staff now has greater discretion on whether or not to issue citations or impose penalties..

For the last two months (four meetings), the town administration has failed to provide the customary video files of Council meetings for rebroadcast on the Community Voice Channel. Apparently, the town administration has a software problem which somehow prevents a usable video file from being created.
At this point, the only video record of Vernon Town Council meetings is that taken by Community Voice Channel volunteers. All Vernon Town Council videos are shown on Comcast Channel 96. Tomorrow (June 17th) Town Council meetings from March 31, 2016 through June 7, 2016 will be shown all day.
