Two appointed to town boards
Town boards will have some new blood after the Selectboard appointed two residents to vacant seats recently.
Keri Goldberg has joined the Recreation Committee. A seventh-generation Vermonter, she told the Selectboard on Feb. 3 that she was interested in volunteering and becoming more involved in the town. Her children are active in recreation programs, and she has coached ski, baseball and tennis teams.
On Feb. 18, the Selectboard appointed John Hemmelgarn to a seat on the Development Review Board. John Patzer was also interviewed for the position, and Town Manager Rick McGuire told the Observer the board had “a difficult choice.”
Hemmelgarn has been a Williston resident for 10 years, is an architect partner at Black River Design Architects in Montpelier and has presented projects to the DRB in the past, according to Selectboard meeting notes.
Kindergarten registration open
Local residents with children who will be 5 years old by Sept. 1 can attend Allen Brook School’s kindergarten registration, set for April 1, 2 and 3 at the school.
