Town Clerk's Office Updated Procedures (April 22, 2020)

Thank you for your patience and support during the COVID-19 pandemic. When it comes to re-opening the clerk's office to the public, I have thought of little else and considered many sources.

While the prospect of re-opening the state, country, and world is exciting, it comes with tremendous responsibility and risk. The following the first of a three phase plan outlining how we are goingto start rolling out re-opening the clerk's office to you:

Phase I: April 20th to approximately May 15th 2020:
We expend a great amount of energy in making our records available online to everyone. Please continue use USLandrecords.com as much as possible.

For everyone’s safety, you are only allowed to access the clerk’s office and the vault.

This is the current procedure to access our vault:

1. Please call any time (802-985-5116) to make an appointment to visit us on a Tuesday or Thursday.

2. Please call ahead to request your lister/tax information so we may have it ready for you to pick up.

3. Please wash your hands in the bathroom on the ground floor. And you may use the hand sanitizer dispenser on the wall as you enter the vault.

4. Please wear a mask and keep a respectful 6 foot distance.

5. Please bring your own materials (i.e. pen, notebook, etc.)

6. Please ring the doorbell/knock on the door to Clerk’s office. I will let you in.

7. Please pay by check or we will invoice you. We cannot accept credit cards at this time.

We will be happy to email or mail out information when it's not available online. The number and email for lister cards is 802-985-5115 and Bbogue@shelburnevt.org. The number and email for tax information is 802-985-5120 and Cbessette@shelburnevt.org. If Candy or BettyJean are unavailable, we will do our best to accommodate you.

If you have extenuating/dire circumstances and need access on another day of the week, please contact me directly to make arrangements. 802-264-5075 or 802-343-3145.

We will sanitize at the beginning middle and end of the day. This routine will be the "new norm". In addition, I will be sanitizing between appointments, and doing notaries through the vestibule window on ground floor.

When I think about all the people in world who are struggling to breathe, I remember what's important to me, unconditional true love. I love my family and my community. I will do my best to protect our staff, and the residents ofour beloved town, while keeping the office up to standards and serving the public.

Yours in service,
Diana Vachon, CMC
Shelburne Town Clerk
