I thought the Board was supposed to appoint these positions. We have them, but they do nothing.

The Selectboards in Richford have not appointed anyone to these positions since before my time, I've been Clerk for 19 years and before that was auditor for 7 years, so it has been more that 26 years. During that time we have not had a need for these positions and wonder if we could even find willing individuals to fill the positions.

I have a few more odd questions to pose. Please be kind.
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?
