Pursuant to 24 V.S.A. § 1061, notice is hereby given that the Middlesex Select Board intends to convey approximately 1.6 acres along US Route 2 and VT Route 100B, acquired by the Town in April 2000, to abutting property owner David Specht, d.b.a. DAMSTAT Properties, LLC, for $21,500 via a Quit Claim deed.

If a petition signed by five percent of the legal voters in Middlesex objecting to this proposed conveyance is presented to the Town Clerk within 30 days of this posting and publication, the Select Board shall cause the question of whether the Town shall convey the real estate to be considered at a special meeting called for that purpose. After the meeting, the real estate may be conveyed unless a majority of the Middlesex voters present vote to disapprove of the conveyance, per 24 V.S.A. § 1051 (a) (1).

Rich Lewis will be out and about in Middlesex this fall and spring!

The Town of Middlesex is undergoing a town-wide reappraisal for the Grand List year 2017. The Town has contracted Richard M. Lewis Appraisal Services, which conducted the 2003 reappraisal and the 2010 update. Half the town will be inspected in 2015 and the other half in 2016.  

Rich drives a black Honda CR-V and his vehicle is equipped with identifying information.  Please call Rich @ 802-476-8129 if you have questions about the re-appraisal.


Meet Erika Holm – the World’s Best Animal Control Officer!!! Not only does Erika live in Middlesex, she also has a long history of being active with the Central Vermont Humane Society. She works with dog owners to avoid problems before they become issues and she would like to remind you that the Fourth of July is a nightmare of loud, unexpected noises for many dogs who then take off and run! So here are some of her helpful tips:

  • A Thunder Shirt can ease your dog’s anxiety during fireworks. Barring that, a tight (but not TOO tight T-shirt) or wrap around the abdomen with an Ace Bandage can achieve the same effect.
  • Keep your dog INSIDE during the festivities. Even if you’re not the one shooting fireworks, your neighbors’ antics might be enough to cause them to run.
  • If your dog does run away, don’t call 911 or the town clerk’s office (because we won’t be here!) Please call Erika at (802) 249-2127.
