Are there any benefits to keeping the present local government system?

We believe that having a village government as well as a town government provides Essex Junction residents with a higher quality of municipal services at relatively low cost, compared to other communities in Chittenden County. It allows us to provide excellent street and sidewalk maintenance, excellent fire safety services, an excellent community library, and a small, accessible municipal government that has the resources and flexibility to respond to your needs.
