Constituents and Friends:
This is the latest edition of The Maysville Voice, our monthly newsletter for those who reside in The Maysville Voting District, which I am proud to represent.
When posted, which will be very soon, you will be able to view our agenda, full board packet, and YouTube Channel here.
A friendly reminder that personal property taxes are due TOMORROW, Jan. 5. The Board was able to extend the due date from Dec. 5 to Jan. 5 to give the taxpayers more time with the approaching holidays, and in light of the drastic increase in values of vehicles.. This did not affect the real estate due date.
The Board also waived the convenience fees for paying personal property taxes online to ease the burden on the taxpayer. These fees are waived through March 1, 2023. I proposed this idea of pushing back the deadline for personal property along with waiving penalties until Jan. 5 and convenience fees until March 1.
On Monday, we will hold our monthly reorganizational meeting being the first meeting of the new year. We will elect a new Chairman and Vice Chairman for the calendar year, along with consideration of appointments and reappointments to standing committees and other annual designations. My last meeting as your Board Chairman was in December. It was an honor to lead the Board and serve the county!
We are also set to hold two public hearings: one for a special use permit for a 5 megawatt solar facility on U.S. Route 60 just East of Sprouses Corner, and a special use permit for a Professional Services Office/Medical Office on Troublesome Creek Road for a medical office.
Also, the Board formed a Committee on Gold Mining, which I will serve on along with Supervisor Harry Bryant, District Five, to consider the results of the House Bill 2313 Statewide Study which I was a workgroup member of, to consider the Committee’s findings. I am in favor of banning gold mining in all zoning districts in the county.
The Buckingham Chamber of Commerce, which I serve as President of, will soon hold its annual banquet on Tuesday, Jan 17, 2023 at the Dillwyn Volunteer Fire Department. Tickets are $20. Come enjoy a celebration of the Chamber’s successes, our four prestigious awards (Youth Achievement, Volunteer of the Year, Business of the Year, and The Lifetime Achievement Award), a silent auction, and visit with folks you may have not seen in some time. You must RSVP at 434-983-2372 to attend.
