The legislature significantly amended Vermont’s Open Meeting Law in 2014. See the Open Meeting Law page for resources.
Act 148 institutes new requirements and deadlines for the municipal management of solid waste. Our Solid Waste Management Workshop on January 28 is designed to bring you up to speed.
All PACIF member police departments have online access to PACIF’s model Fair and Impartial Policing policy, which satisfies the requirements of Act 193 (S.184) of the 2014 Legislative session. Interested non-police individuals may see the policy here.

This YouTube video gives a quick overview of one way we are helping PACIF members' employees get serious about wellness. Studies show that healthy workers are injured less often and recover more quickly than unhealthy ones. In each One-to-One Wellness Consultation, Heidi Joyce spends 30 minutes with a single employee to get a handle on his or her wellness status and develop customized strategies for improving. Members just need to schedule several consultations for a single day so Heidi can share her know-how and enthusiasm.
