The Town of Granville lies nestled in the Green Mountains of Vermont with the scenic Route 100 corridor running north-south through the town. A rural town, Granville has a population of approximately 300 full and part-time residents. Our Town Office is located on Route 100 in the historic one-room schoolhouse that dates back to 1857.
Currently Granville tuitions the student population under the School Choice provision of the Department of Education statutes. Schools are funded by local property taxes as well as State and Federal contributions.
Town governance consists of a Selectboard comprised of three members elected at the Annual Town meeting in March, as well as various other elected and appointed positions. Law enforcement is handled by an elected Town Constable and Vermont State Police. Granville has a trained volunteer Fire Department equipped with trucks and equipment to handle fires and other emergencies, and has agreements with fire departments in abutting towns for reciprocal services if needed during an emergency. Our Cemetery Commissioner oversees the three cemeteries in town.
Granville is centrally located to three hospitals, Gifford Medical Center in Randolph, Porter Hospital in Middlebury, and Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin. There are local clinics in Rochester and Waitsfield. Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Hanover, New Hampshire and Fletcher Allen Health Care Center in Burlington, Vermont are the two larger medical centers in our region.
Currently, there is cellular telephone service in most spots in town provided by AT&T Wireless, and DSL internet available to subscribers through Fairpoint Communications.
