- Assist the health officer in the discharge of his or her duties (18 V.S.A. § 617);
- Serve as a district court officer (24 V.S.A. § 296); and

The Town of Bolton has adopted a “Policy for the Collection of Delinquent Taxes.” The purpose of the policy is to establish clear guidelines so that all delinquent taxpayers are treated fairly and know what to expect. The policy is available for review here.
Notice from AOT
The Agency of Transportation, through its contractor, Morvan Painting Corporation, is performing bridge conditioning work on Bridge #37 over Joiner Brook on US Route 2 in Bolton. Part of this work will include the removal of deteriorated paint which has been determined to contain lead, and must be treated as hazardous waste. For this reason, a contingency and emergency response plan has been implemented. The hazardous waste will be kept on site in fifty-five gallon drums until it is removed by a licensed waste disposal company. The paint chips in the drums should not present a hazard to the public or the environment. The project will mobilize this week (week of October 22, 2017) and work for this season will be completed on Friday, November 17, 2017. At that point AOT will determine if additional work needs to be completed in the spring of 2018. Any questions regarding the contingency plan can be directed to the Hazardous Materials and Waste Coordinator, AOT, at 802-250-4666
