The Vermont town of Stamford has voted to overturn in its community Gov. Phil Scott's emergency orders issued to protect the state during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The select board of the town of about 800 people along the Massachusetts border voted 3-2 Tuesday to "terminate'' the governor's restrictions.
Select Board member Daniel Potvin says the restrictions remain in place while what he expects will be a legal battle plays out.
Assistant Attorney General Matthew Phillips said Wednesday in a letter to the town that state law does not give the town authority to terminate the state of emergency.
