Who Gets In On Legislation To Collect Early Tax Revenue?
In Abingdon the Washington County Virginia Board of Supervisors had a closed meeting to discuss the Virginia Code section that refers to developments of regional impact. The meeting was closed to allow conversation with legal counsel regarding specific matters requiring advice concerning the legal implications of the Virginia Code. No action was taken as a result of the closed meeting which included County Administrator Nadine Culberson, County Attorney Lucy Phillips, County Treasurer Fred Parker and Christy Parker, the county's director of economic development. Legislation could allow the city of Bristol, if they meet requirements as a regional impact development at Interstate 81's Exit 5 to collect tax revenue after the first phase of construction is complete on The Falls. Board Chairman Dulcie Mumpower says they heard from the county attorney. (bg)
