By Pat Licata, President
The Orange County Board of Supervisors is the main legislative body for the county and is comprised of five members who are elected by the voters of the county and serve four-year staggered terms. Each November, a supervisors’ meeting is held in LOW to provide residents a convenient first-hand look at how their local government decisions are made.
The Board of Supervisors will conduct their regular business meeting on Wednesday, November 13th, at 6:00 p.m. in the Great Hall at the Clubhouse. Having a supervisors’ meeting in LOW is a tradition in part because the meetings are well attended. To maintain that tradition, the Civic Club has elected to forgo its regular monthly meeting and encourage increased attendance at the supervisors’ meeting.
On November 13th, the supervisors’ meeting will include a message from Cliff Wilks, President of Lake of the Woods Board of Directors, and a presentation of a Working Draft of the Capital Improvement Program for FY2019 – FY2023. Bryan David, our County Administrator, will report on the supervisors’ Two-Year Strategic Priorities and their Legislative Priorities for the next session of the Virginia General Assembly.
At 7:00 p.m., the supervisors will provide time to receive public comments. Anyone wishing to address the supervisors during the Public Comment must sign-in on the forms that will be located on a table outside the Great Hall. The forms will be submitted to the Chief Deputy Clerk, and speakers will be called in order. After Public Comment, the supervisors will recess for dinner with the Lake of the Woods Board of Directors.
We look forward to seeing you at the Board of Supervisors meeting on November 13th. Before or after the meeting, consider having dinner at the Clubhouse. The view of the lake from the Clubhouse is spectacular.
