Vt. Corrections Dept. wants to hear from public
The first of four quarterly meetings planned during the next year is set for Tuesday at 4:15 p.m. at Vermont Interactive Television locations around the state.
Corrections Commissioner Andrew Pallito says he's hoping members of the public, including those with an interest in corrections issues, will attend the session and provide their thoughts to the department.
The department's planning chief, Monica Weeber, says the town meetings mark a shift for the department in getting public input. It previously had relied on a Citizens' Advisory Group.
