2020 State of the County Address to be Publicly Broadcast
View the address live on Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 6 p.m.

Chesterfield County Administrator Dr. Joe Casey, in partnership with the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce and ChamberRVA, will deliver Chesterfield’s State of the County address at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 9

Due to health precautions related to COVID-19, the event will be conducted virtually, providing an opportunity for the public to watch the address live from the comfort of their homes or workplaces.

The State of the County address will be broadcast live on the State of the County webpage, the county’s main Facebook and YouTube pages, and Comcast Channel 98 and Verizon Channel 28.

As part of the State of the County address, Dr. Casey will provide an overview of the county’s advancement during the pandemic to pivot service delivery and keep the county open for business. He will also highlight the county budget, capital and infrastructure investments, and business development, among other topics, as well as provide an overall vision for the county’s future. 

Additionally, Dr. Casey will discuss plans for a $54 million budget surplus that has prompted the Board of Supervisors to consider an array of amendments to the FY2021 spending plan, including investment in the county’s workforce. The surplus is the result of the county’s quick actions to mitigate financial impact early into the pandemic, increased sales tax revenue, and an accelerated rate of residential growth.
