General Municipal Law and Governance


Practicing Attorneys

If you have any questions about any of these subject areas, please contact:

Community leaders must be diligent and thorough in discharging their legal obligations, and their actions and motives must be above reproach. The assistance of a trusted, experienced municipal lawyer can be crucial in achieving these objectives.

All public bodies must comply with Vermont’s Open Meeting Law and Public Records Act. Public officials need to avoid conflicts of interest. Binding public action requires properly warned meetings and valid ballot questions.

For over two decades, we have advised public entities on issues related to open meetings, public records, annual and special town meetings, and the requirements for valid and binding action by voters and municipal legislative bodies.

At Stitzel Page & Fletcher, we understand that a timely response can be the difference between a quick resolution and the creation of a complicated, protracted problem. Our team of dedicated, dependable, and responsive attorneys is committed to a prompt response to client communications and questions.
