Elswick Holds Budget Community Meeting
To continue engaging with citizens about the budget process, Matoaca District Supervisor Steve Elswick and School Board Member Rob Thompson co-hosted two Matoaca 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.

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.
