st. j selectST. JOHNSBURY - The St. Johnsbury Select Board met last night for their bi-weekly meeting. The board discussed a wide variety of topics that will be of importance in the coming months. The board put a lot of focus on this year's town budget.
The main item on the agenda was the discussion of this year's proposed town budget. The board announced last night that the budget will be able to be reviewed by the general public on Tuesday February, seventeenth, three weeks before town meeting day.

The board also announced last night that it has changed the location of where town residents will go to vote. Voting will now take place at the St. Johnsbury School, rather than the previous location at the Father Lively Center. Because of the change to the local school, Select Board Chairman Kevin Oddy would like to see the school include local politics to the curriculum to give students an understanding of how decisions regarding the town are made.
