Superintendent's Weekly Wrap-Up

School Year 2017-2018


March 30, 2018

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.

The Board of Supervisors of Pittsylvania County, Virginia, will hold a public hearing in the Pittsylvania County Schools Educational and Cultural Center Auditorium, 39 Bank Street, SE, Chatham, Virginia, 24531, Monday, April 9, 2018, at 7:00 p.m., to hear citizen input on potentially changing the County’s current personal property rate from $8.75 of assessed value, 30% of fair market value to $12.00 of assessed value, 30% of fair market value. In addition to this change, the Board will also consider potentially changing the Vehicle License Fee from $38.75 per vehicle to $40.75 per vehicle. Separate public hearings will be held on this same night to hear citizen input on the proposed County Budget, the proposed School Budget and the proposed real property tax increase. A complete text of the proposed change is available in the Office of the County Administrator, 1 Center Street, Chatham, Virginia, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., as well as on the County’s website at www.pittsylvaniacountyva.org.
