Vt. Corrections Department seeks public comments

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Corrections wants to hear from the public about its operations - ranging from transitional housing in Vermont's communities to the operation of its prisons.

The first of 4 quarterly meetings planned during the next year is set for Tuesday at 4:15 p.m. at Vermont Interactive Television locations around the state. (( Go to WCAX Infocenter for a link to that website and list of locations. ))

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 she doubts the department will respond immediately to any issues raised, but will do so in the near future.
