Pittsford selectboard sets mask guidelines


The Pittsford Selectboard determined that face masks should be required when entering town buildings at times when Rutland County is experiencing high COVID-19 case rates.

The decision was made after Town Manager John Haverstock proposed the measure and said that the county is currently experiencing high rates of the Delta variant.

The decision was one of four items of business put before the board, all of which passed unanimously.

Selectmen also began discussing what the hiring process for a new town manager will look like. Haverstock told the selectboard during executive session of the Aug. 4 meeting that he will be resigning from the position in March.

Haverstock said at the meeting that the town intends to issue a proposal soon that will include a job description, as well as a pay and benefit package.

In an email, Haverstock added that the town may retain VLCT as a consultant to help with the search for a new town manager.

Haverstock added he will generate some materials for the selectboard’s future review.


• Selectmen voted to continue the town’s annual tax sale, which did not take place last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Those who are two or more years delinquent on their taxes will receive notice from the town and will be given time to reply to the notice before any property is put on sale.

• The selectboard gave permission for the Pittsford Fire Department to move forward with the state to organize a coin drop fundraiser.

The coin drop would replace the department’s usual haunted house fundraiser.

The fire department wishes to hold the coin drop on Oct. 23 after the tractor parade.

• An assessor’s error that was on the Aug. 4 meeting agenda was passed after some confusion at the previous meeting.

Haverstock told The Reporter that the assessor provided clarification to the original memo, which cleared up the issue and the selectmen found satisfactory.
