News Release on Abingdon’s Annexation Proposal Due Friday
Washington County Virginia has the rest of the week to formally issue its position on Abingdon’s annexation proposal. The issue was discussed by the board in a closed door meeting on Tuesday and a news release is expected by the end of the work day on Friday. The county has maintained confidentiality concerning Abingdon’s proposed annexation at the town’s request. Commissioners now say future discussions will be made available to the public. Several property owners spoke out against annexation at the public comment session held prior to the closed meeting but most wanted to see the process made more public. Residents of some of Washington County’s more-affluent subdivisions say they don’t feel annexation would benefit them in terms of services compared to taxes they would have to pay. Another public hearing on the annexation issue is being planned. (bg)
