Policies are adopted by the municipality to provide guidance for internal operations and generally apply to employees, town facilities or the governing body itself. Below is a list of policies currently in effect.


Municipal ordinances, once adopted, are legally enforceable local laws. The process for adopting or repealing an ordinance is carefully outlined by Vermont state statue. An ordinance, unlike a policy, is “‘an expression of municipal will affecting the conduct of the inhabitants generally, or of a number of them under some general designation.’ City of Barre v. Perry & Scribner, 82 Vt. 301 (1909).” Below is a list of Ordinances passed by the Town of Sharon.
