POLICE SURVEY AVAILABLE
The Williston Police Department is looking for community feedback through an online survey, available at www.town.williston.vt.us/police through Aug. 15.
Hard copies of the survey are also available at the police station.
In a letter at the beginning of the survey, Police Chief Todd Shepard says he intends to formally survey the community on a regular basis, possibly every two to three years.
“We hope to establish some benchmarks for how the community feels as it relates to crime in your community and performance of your police department,” he writes.
Input from the survey will help the police department direct its services, as well as formulate programs and goals.
LIBRARY LOOKS FOR INPUT
Like the police department, the Dorothy Alling Memorial Library is seeking resident input through a community survey.
The library will consider the data for its strategic plan and annual budgeting.
Surveys should be completed by July 31. It is available on the library’s website, williston.lib.vt.us. A paper copy can be requested by calling 878-4918 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
TOWN SEEKS PUBLIC WORKS PROPOSALS
Williston has issued a request for proposals from property owners interested in selling a building and/or land to the town for a new public works facility.
The deadline is Aug. 2 at 4 p.m. For a complete copy of the request for proposal, contact Town Manager Richard McGuire at 878-0919 or email@example.com or visit the town website, town.williston.vt.us.
HOST FAMILIES SOUGHT
PAX, the Program of Academic Exchange, is seeking families who would be interested in hosting an exchange student who will be attending Champlain Valley Union High School in the fall. Families can host for a few weeks, months or the entire school year.
Students do not need their own room, just a bed in a room with a host sibling and a place to study. They have money to cover personal expenses, including school lunch, and have medical insurance.
Interested families can contact community coordinator Kelley Cartularo at 373-0011 or KelleyC@pax.org.
