PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT

TOWN OF CASTLETON

In Response to the COVID-19(CORONAVIRUS) Pandemic, Castleton Town Office will be closed to the public effective 8:00 AM Wednesday, March 18, 2020 through April 5, 2020. At this point the situation will be reassessed to deem whether the closure must to be extended.

We have a small workforce and not all positions have redundancy, therefore to keep the Town’s business moving forward, the best course of action to keep employees healthy and on the job.  We will do so by limiting person-to-person contact through social distancing. We are sorry for any inconvenience, but in light of what is happening globally, we choose to follow the recommendations from the President’s Coronavirus Task Force, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Vermont Department of Health to get past this and on the road to recovery.

Town employees will be in the building working and will assist with daily business as much as possible via telephone, email or mail. There is a drop box on the exterior of the Town Office near the front door for your use. If you are making a payment for taxes or sewer, please use the drop box. If you want to speak to the tax department, you can email tax@castletonvt.org or call the town office number at (802) 468-5319 ext. 204 and ask for Margaret.

The Town Office will still accept deliveries and will accommodate those who use the drop box for payment submissions who would like a receipt during normal business hours. Based on the payer’s request, a receipt can be mailed, or an employee can bring it to the front door of the Town Office.

If you need something printed, please call the applicable office and the staff will make every attempt to accommodate your request.
