9. Utilities & Services

TP Topic - Utilities Service and Regional Cooperation

Colchester should endeavor to create and implement structural, operational, and regional options to optimize the transparency, accountability, effectiveness, and cost of government and public services. Utilities discussed in this section include sewage disposal, water supply, solid waste disposal, and stormwater treatment. Services discussed include Town Government, Fire Protection, and Regional Government.

Additionally, Colchester seeks to work together with other municipalities and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission in order to achieve the vision and policies in the new Town Plan and assist other municipalities and the RPC in meeting new goals.

Colchester’s final Town Plan meeting was held on October 2nd. The Town Plan Team conducted a survey that had been dispersed online via the Town Plan webpage, our Thoughts on Thursday email service, Facebook and Instagram. The survey was open for 5 days and we collected 65 responses in total. Click through the slides below and check out the Video from the meeting!  Sorry, no podcast for this meeting.
