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 lots of information, links, and resources to inform and engage with you as your County Supervisor. This newsletter is filled with lots of resources and information from our upcoming Monday, March 14, 2022 Board Meeting. We are meeting with the Virginia Department of Transportation at 5 PM to review and amend the Six Year Improvement Plan for state maintained roads, and I have several issues to bring up after hearing from you about many concerns on many roads in our District.
We will be considering and possibly taking action on the following items: Action following a 6 PM public hearing of the transfer of the former Sentara Buckingham Family Medicine Building to Centra Health (which I am thrilled and very excited about that we potentially are seeing a new doctor’s office in Dillwyn); several budget request presentations; a presentation from the Commonwealth Regional Council regarding a repayment due to their excess of revenues; a 6 PM hearing regarding adoption of a solid waste fee ordinance; tire day appropriation; considering an appointment to the Board of Zoning Appeals and to the Planning Commission to replace former District Three Commissioner Pat Bowe, who passed away last month.
Our upcoming Board of Supervisors regular meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Monday, March 14, 2022, 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. If you’re unable to attend in person, you can view our meeting live here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfIL3rVTUEqgxBwXCQoBDTA.

Bridge Road (Route 644) to Temporarily Close
Route 644 – Road closing. Motorists should expect delays due to a bridge rehab project on Route 644 in Buckingham County. Route 644 (Bridge Road) will be temporarily closed from Route 24 (Mt. Rush Hwy) to Route 638 (Dixie Hill Road). Road closure is scheduled to begin March 28, 2022 and is planned until May 06, 2022. VDOT says this bridge currently only has a rating of fair. This project will fix deficiencies and ultimately keep the bridge from having to become posted with weight restrictions.
CenturyLink’s Ongoing Infrastructure Issues
Last night (Tuesday, March 8) we had the slightest bit of rain, which resulted in many neighborhoods losing their telephone dial tones and internet. I continue to work with their representatives on repairing these outages and investing in their infrastructure. I am also working with many other localities on being a voice for Rural Virginia as the State Corporation Commission considers the transfer of control of the parent company to a new firm. I promise I will continue to work to hold CenturyLink accountable to the people of Buckingham and Rural Virginia.
