Welcome to the Town of Barre. Nestled deep within the Green Mountains of Central Vermont our small, but growing, community is home to approximately 7,600 residents. Officially chartered in 1781, the Town of Barre incorporates 5 separate villages and is known for its large granite quarries, panoramic mountain views, beautiful natural scenery, outstanding school, great residential neighborhoods, and many modern recreation facilities. As an integral part of the Barre-Montpelier urban area, our families enjoy all the conveniences of an urban area while residing in some of the state's most pristine, rural environments. Please feel free to visit our community anytime.

Beat the heat!! Now is the time to go outdoors and enjoy the Town Forrest. There is something (walking tours, biking, disc golf, etc.) for everyone. For more information on the Town Forrest see Announcement 6 below.


1. Due to the severe rain on July 19 Cummings Road near the Plainfield town line and Plainfield Brook Road near the Plainfield town line are closed. Repair work has begun (Aug. 14). The roads will be re-opened soon. Check these Annoucements about September 10.

2. The Selectboard resumed it weekly meeting schedule. Meetings are every Tuesday night starting at 7:00 pm. Click on Boards and Commissions, and then Selectboard to view the agenda.

3. The lawn waste site near the top of Holden Road is open Wednesdays 3-6 pm; Thursdays 9 am - noon and Saturdays 8 am - noon. Many people enjoy the opportunity to use this free service, perhaps you do. A volunteer, or better yet, volunteers, could open the site during another 2 - 4 hour period. To learn more or to volunteer call the manager's office at 479-9331 or email

4. All road paving work up to Contract #2 has been completed. The contractor for Contract #2 plans to start paving about September 10. To view the 2015 paved road project contract schedule click here.

5. Tax and sewer bills have been mailed. The sewer bill is in the envelope with the tax bill. Owners that forward their property tax bill to their mortgage holder need to remove and keep the sewer bill. To review tax rates click here.

6. Town Forest trail maps are available at the Town Manager's Office (M-F, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm). Parking for forest users is available at 44 Brook Street in Upper Websterville and at the end of Barclay Quarry Road in Upper Graniteville.

7. By Selectboard request the former Dugout Restaurant property cleanup income and expenses are available for viewing (click here).

8. The Town is looking for a non-profit organization that would volunteer labor at the September 19 bulk trash collection. In exchange for volunteering to unload users' vehicles, the non-profit organization will receive donations from the users. In the past, organizations received $400 - $500. Volunteer hours are 7 a.m. - 2 p.m. Eight volunteers would be sufficient, but more volunteers could split the day. For more information contact Carl Rogers at 479-9331.
