Essex Junction Trustees
The Essex Junction Trustees is the governing, legislative body for the Municipality of the Village of Essex Junction. The five member board is elected at large within the Village. After each Annual Meeting, one of the Trustees is elected by the other Trustees to the office of Village President. The Village President is the Chairperson of the Board of Trustees and presides at the Trustee meetings. The three year terms of the Trustees are staggered to provide continuity. The Trustees usually meet twice per month on Tuesday evenings in the meeting room at the Village municipal office building at Five Corners The public is invited to attend all meetings, and may address the board or ask questions during a special “public to be heard” section at the beginning of each meeting.
Trustees meetings are videotaped by Channel 17/Town Meeting Television and broadcast several times during the week after the meeting. The taped sessions are also viewable online anytime after the meeting by going to the Channel 17 Clickable Agenda window.
The Trustees may hold special meetings to develop budgets, deal with personnel or contractual issues, or to extend public information sessions. All Trustee meetings are warned at least one week in advance. Official warnings appear in the Essex Reporter (the local community newspaper), and on announcement boards in the lobbies of the Village office and the Brownell Library. Meeting warnings are also posted on this website.
