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 for our Monday, Sept. 12, 2022 Board Meeting, which I hope you will consider attending. SpecialTouch1Bham We also have three rezoning and zoning-related public hearings and one hearing amending our Fiscal Year 22-23 budget because of an adjustment in school funding, along with four presentations.  It will indeed be a long meeting. The hearings revolve around, not only our operating budget, but a proposed sawmill on Ranson Road, a proposed ammunition sales operation on Sawmill Road, and a commercial repair shop and rental yard on Slate River Mill Road. Please make sure to pay close attention to what you sign up for to speak as you must sign up and be recognized before speaking during public comment or any public hearing.  We will also consider setting public hearings for October for two zoning cases.  We will also consider forming a committee to study our Zoning Ordinance, allowing staff to undertake an extensive review of zoning actions taken since adoption of the ordinance; and having an outside agency complete our Comprehensive Plan. We also have several Department/Agency Reports, including a request from the School Board to use Carry Over Funds for a specific purpose, two Finance Committee recommendations regarding increases for Sheriff’s Office staff and an appropriation to the Firemen’s Association for the purposes of a new location for their Tractor Pull. We will also discuss a recommendation from the Solar Committee. We’ll also be honoring the Buckingham Coach Pitch State Championship Team, which placed third in the World Series representing Virginia during their tournament in Alabama, who also brought home the Sportsman Award! Our upcoming Board of Supervisors regular meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 12, 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.
