Thank you to all of you who
attended the County’s Public Input Sessions on the 2018-2019 Budget. The School
Division had excellent representation at each of the meetings, and many
residents spoke in favor of increasing funding for our schools. The County will
hold a public hearing on the Budget on April 9, 2018, at the Pittsylvania County
Schools’ Educational and Cultural Center located in Chatham, Virginia. I have
included the County’s Notice of Public Hearing below.
