Step up and put in your name to help the Town of Burlington. 


According to the Burlington Board of Selectmen, they will be making an appointment to fill one regular position on the Zoning Board of Appeals. 


“The Board of Selectmen is seeking residents of the Town who wish to serve their community in a volunteer capacity,” a notice from the board states.

The board also talks a lot of signs and signage in town. 


The ZBA meets the first and third Tuesday of every month.
