For Those About to Watch…
Or perhaps you plan to attend the Stafford County Board of Supervisors meeting in person. Either way, here are some highlights as I see them.
1) The Capital Improvement Program. This is the first item on the agenda at 1 p.m. and will probably be a major (or the major) topic of conversation at the joint School Board/BoS meeting at 5 p.m. in conference room A/B/C.
2) Legislative Priorities. Fifth on the afternoon agenda, but first in your heart. These are the top requests the county wants from state government. Nothing too unusual or amazing here, just a sign of the times that can be fun to peruse.
3) Awarding a contract for installing a water line to Roseville Plantation. Item 23 in the evening session, but could be moved to the afternoon if time allows. Interesting because it awards $1.2 million. Also interesting because it puts public water well beyond the current Urban Services Area boundary.
4) The public hearings. There are eight of them. That’s a lot. Most involve text amendments to the zoning ordinance and county code. Another changes the fees for development applications and the last one increases the cost of a 24-punch pool pass by $12.
See you there!
