Holland Holds Budget Community Meeting

To continue engaging with citizens about the budget process, Dale District Supervisor Jim Holland and School Board Member John Erbach co-hosted two Dale District community meetings focused on the county and schools proposed FY2018 budget. The meetings provided an opportunity for residents to preview elements that will be incorporated into the plan and ask questions.

On March 15, from noon to 5 p.m., the county administrator will present the full proposed FY2018 budget during a work session with the Board of Supervisors in Room 502 of the Administration Building. Additional community meetings will be scheduled following the release of the proposed FY2018 budget to the board.

Board Recognizes Alpha Kappa Alpha

At the Feb. 22 Board of Supervisors meeting, Dale District Supervisor Jim Holland, joined by his fellow board members, recognized the local chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha for their work in the Chesterfield community. Alpha Kappa Alpha was the nation’s first sorority established by African American women and today has more than 290,000 members worldwide. One of their most recent projects was Playground Mobilization Day in which they refurbished the playground at Ettrick Elementary. The group also awards scholarships every year to deserving Chesterfield high school students.

Partial Tax Exemptions for Rehabilitated Structures

The Board of Supervisors recently made some changes to the county’s incentive program for the rehabilitation of properties, making it easier for people to apply for partial tax exemptions for rehabilitating older homes and buildings. There is no application fee for the program, which offers an exemption to people who meet certain criteria when improving older properties. Buildings must be 25 years old, though newer structures may qualify in certain cases. The property improvement must raise the assessed value of residential homes by 10 percent and commercial/industrial buildings by 15 percent. Large commercial projects are now eligible for an exemption at a lower improvement value threshold, which may encourage revitalization in projects worth $10 million or more. Call the Department of Real Estate Assessments at 804-748-1321 for more information.


Cub Scout Pack 2874 Meets with Dale District Supervisor

Earlier this month, a group of seven fifth-grade boys in Cub Scout Pack 2874 from St. Luke’s United Methodist Church visited the Public Meeting Room to meet with Dale District Supervisor Jim Holland. As part of their final requirement to move up to Boy Scouts, the boys had to meet with a government leader, learn about their role and discuss important issues going on in the community. Lt. John Miller from the Chesterfield County Police Department is the group’s den leader and arranged the meeting.
