Marshfield always appoints these officials. They haven't been
called upon in the 7 years that I have been here. We have called
upon our fence viewers more than once to help deal with the issue of
cattle on neighboring property.

24 V.S.A. 871 requires the
selectboard to appoint one or more weigher of coal and one or more
inspectors of lumber shingles, and wood. We all know that these
offices are relics of a time long passed, but I'm trying to ascertain
whether towns still, in fact, make these appointments.
Do any towns out there appoint a
weigher of coal and/or an inspector of lumber, shingles, and wood?
Has any town had any occasion,
in recent memory, to call upon either of these officers?
