TOWN OF LYNDON
NOTICE OF ORDINANCE AMENDMENT
October 2, 2018


The Town of Lyndon adopted the following amendments to its Town Ordinance on October 1, 2018. These changes will become effective on November 30, 2018.

At the duly warned Selectboard meeting held on October 1, 2018 the Selectboard adopted changes to Chapter 7 ARTICLE 4 entitled Integrated Solid Waste Management Program. The changes were adopted in order to accurately reflect how solid waste is now currently being disposed of within the Town of Lyndon. Previously the Town contracted or signed a franchise agreement with a hauler to provide curb side service to the residential properties with the Town. The Selectboard opted to allow the consumer to determine the method in which they legally dispose of their solid waste. The changes to the ordinance clarify that the consumer is now responsible for disposing of their own solid waste and recycling.

The Selectboard Board also adopted a Nuisance Structures and Dangerous Buildings Section for the Town Ordinance. This section defines Nuisance Structures and Dangerous Buildings, and outlines inspection procedures, the requirements of the building safety order report, the appeal procedure, and enforcement and penalties for non-compliance.

A complete copy of the Town Ordinance is available at the office of the Municipal Administrator during normal working hours.You can also click below to view the amended sections:


Anyone may submit a petition with a minimum of 5% of Lyndon registered voters asking for reconsideration of these amendments. Such petition must be received no later than 44 days (November 14, 2018) from the adoption date. Such a petition will require a special Town Meeting to reconsider this amendment.

Any questions or comments may be directed to the Municipal Administrator at (802) 626-5834.
