What’s on the Board of Supervisors agenda this week?

The Board of Supervisors meets Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the Community Services Center.

Before the meeting, the supervisors will have its 50 mile meal, scheduled with representatives from the Caroline Extension Office and the Hanover Caroline Soil & Water Conservation District.

Here are a few notable items on the agenda for the 6 p.m. meeting:

  • Continued discussion of changes to allow “rural resorts” to be built in rural preservation areas. Here’s a story from the Sept. 10 meeting about the supervisors rejecting the changes.
  • The board is considering establishing a policy for expedited public hearing requests. Here’s the memo.
  • Discussion of an employee incentive program. “The intent of the program is to encourage employees to recommend valuable suggestions through innovative ideas and cost-saving initiatives,” according to a memo.
  • Public hearing for the proposed boundary line adjustment for the town of Port Royal. Here’s a story explaining the situation. Last week, the Port Royal Town Council unanimously approved the proposed change that would increase the size of the town.

Here’s the entire agenda.
