Mark your calendars!
Thetford voters are being asked to vote “yes” or “no” about whether to vote on November 6, 2018 for a change of government structure (the addition of a Town Manager) for the Town of Thetford.
The October 3, 2018 vote is NOT a “yes” or “no” vote concerning a change in our governmental structure. It is a vote about whether to have a ballot vote during the upcoming mid-term election on that subject – the change in governmental structure.
The Selectboard will devote time on its regular Monday night agendas to this vote starting Monday, September 17, 2018. If you’d like to learn more about this vote or the potential vote in November, please attend upcoming Selectboard meetings.
The following Town of Thetford Committees/Commissions have vacancies:

- Historic Preservation Committee (2 vacancies)
- Development Review Board (1 alternate)
Thetford is a town of six unique villages on the Connecticut River, half-way up the east side of Vermont. About half of its 2,500 or so residents live and work in town, with the other half working in other towns in the Upper Valley. The community is extremely active, and different groups seem to enjoy living here all the more for the fact that there are groups of people here quite different from their own.
The town is run by volunteers and by a full and part-time staff of 25. Residents wishing to get involved in the several committees that help set the town’s agenda should look to the Citizen’s Guide on our Contact Us page and feel free to send questions to one of our selectboard members or other public official.
