It’s budget time! This year, we are looking at a budget that answers the service needs of Powhatan County, but also relieves some of the tax burden on our residents. The ‘big picture’ is to bring in more rural-friendly commercial growth, and to let them pick up some of the cost of fire equipment, sheriff cars, school supplies, transportation, and all of our other needs.

You can help with suggestions to your supervisors. We’ve made it easier to ‘play with the numbers’ this year. You can get on the County web site and select an Excel spreadsheet which allows you to make cuts/additions to actual items, and see the results for yourselves. Here’s a link.

Or, you can just call or email us, and let your thoughts be known.

After all, it’s your money!
