Unchecked Power: Vermont Edition

By | April 5, 2017

I submit for your perusal two screen captures that you might find amusing:

This’ll be my third year as Weigher of Coal for the town of Richmond, Vermont. I haven’t had to weigh any coal yet, and since the town doesn’t have a set of municipal scales, I’m unlikely to be asked to do so, but on the other hand, I don’t get paid anything for holding down the office.

Carole got asked today to continue on as a town Fence Viewer, but in defense of that office, she actually has gotten asked to come out once or twice and rule on fenceline disputes along with the other town Fence Viewers. The town is supposed to have three, but right now has only two. If you read this, and live in Richmond, contact the town manager!

    Peculiar, charming, and essentially harmless – that’s how I like my governments! I am tempted to look for a list of all such posts in Vermont/New England, but it’s easier and possibly more fun to just speculate.
