Previous Merger Efforts

For the past few years, the Town of Essex Selectboard and the Village of Essex Junction Board of Trustees have explored a potential merger of the governance of the two municipalities under a single charter.  A Governance Subcommittee of the two boards reviewed governance models and organized groups and surveys with residents to help create merger plans.
