Welcome to The Maysville Voice, the newsletter for those who reside and vote in the Maysville District in Buckingham County. I am pleased to bring you much information, links, and resources to inform and engage with you as your County Supervisor.
Some topics we will be considering or hearing about during our meeting on this Tuesday include: An update on The Firefly project from CVEC, a public hearing on a 199’ cellular tower in northern Buckingham and a public hearing on revenue sharing with solar projects, introduction of a case from the Planning Commission regarding a nearly 2,000 acre solar facility off Bridgeport Road, forming a new committee to oversee the construction/renovation of our animal control facility, and authorization of a contract for repairs to the older portion of the courthouse.
Our upcoming Board of Supervisors regular meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2021, NOT TOMORROW BECAUSE OF COLUMBUS DAY, in the Peter Francisco Board Room in the County Administration Complex on Route 60. I encourage you to attend to learn more about your County Government and how your tax dollars are spent.

Continued Outages with CenturyLink
As you know, I have been leaning in and fighting hard to get CenturyLink to restore telephone and internet outages that have been persistent in our county, but more so for the company to replace its failing infrastructure. Here are some links to media coverage of that effort.www.MilesforMaysville.com
