The Vermont Legislature has passed a bill that changes VCGI’s legal standing. Once the Governor signs the legislation, VCGI will become a division of the Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD). The legislation provides that 6 positions (same as the number of positions we currently employ) will be created and existing employees shall be permitted to transfer to the positions created within the new VCGI. VCGI’s duties have not been changed, so we will continue to provide public geospatial data, information, training, and technical support to the citizens, businesses, nonprofits, and public agencies of Vermont. We’ll let you know if any other changes come up!
