The Town of Grand Isle is located in Grand Isle County and is central in the Champlain Islands. The Town is bordered on three sides by water:  on the east by the Inland Sea; on the west by the broad lake of Lake Champlain; and on the north by the “gut” at the drawbridge to North Hero.  Grand Isle is the connection for the year-round ferry to Plattsburgh, New York.  The Town is a short 30-minute drive to Burlington and a day trip to Montreal, Canada.  The fertile farmland fields overlook vistas of breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.  Grand Isle’s views are tranquil, peaceful and pastoral.

Vermont Department of Taxes Issues 2020 Tax Season Guidance in Response to COVID-19 Emergency

The Vermont Department of Taxes continues to carefully monitor the evolving situation related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Department is working closely with the office of Governor Phil Scott and the Vermont legislature, following changes at the federal level, and adhering to guidance from the Vermont Department Health. Please see the Department’s information on relief for Vermont taxpayers at tax.vermont.gov/coronavirus. You should check this link periodically as the guidance may change. You may also follow the Vermont Department of Taxes on Facebook and Twitter.

Transfer Station Bulletin
April 1, 2020
Per a recent letter from our Governor, the transfer station is temporarily halting the acceptance of any bulk items. This includes items such as mattresses, furniture, sofas, chairs etc. Only true construction material will be accepted, and the attendant has the right to refuse any items that are deemed bulky. 
Also, we have observed much crowding, and therefore are going to limit the amount of vehicles entering the facility to 2-4 cars at a time. An attendant will be at the gate directing traffic. Obviously this will create delays and ask that you don”t show up at the opening hour, which as many of you know has happened in the past. This just creates more congestion. Also, stop to think if that little 8 pound bag of trash really needs to be thrown away this week…can it wait another week or two? You’ll find you’ll also save money that way as well!
Thank you for your patience as we work through this. Stay Healthy!
