Office of: Mendon Selectboard

December 11, 2023

The Mendon Selectboard learned that an appointed public official received a serious threat directed towards the employees and officials in Mendon.  The threat is currently under investigation.

The safety of the employees and town officials is a priority and will not be compromised.  The Selectboard has taken immediate steps to ensure the safety of our municipal government while continuing to serve the public in accordance with Vermont statutes.  Essential municipal operations continue remotely and under the supervision of the Rutland County Sheriff.  The public can reach town staff via telephone and email during normal Town Office business hours of Monday-Thursday 9 AM-4 PM. All Board and Commission meetings will be held remotely.  The agenda and links to the meetings can be found on

The Selectboard requests understanding and patience during this difficult time.  We wish to demonstrate unwavering support to our dedicated staff and our public officials, most of whom are volunteers serving their community.

Mendon continues to be an amazing and safe community to live, work and visit.  The municipality is committed to being open and welcoming to all.
