Board acts on reform proposals, Neersville company dissolved
Following a recommendation from the Government Reform Commission, the Board of Supervisors on Feb. 6 dissolved the charter of the Neersville Volunteer Fire and Rescue Co.
Members of the company will still be allowed to join other volunteer companies in the county.
Three supervisors, Geary Higgins (R-Catoctin), Janet Clarke (R-Blue Ridge) and Ken Reid (R-Leesburg), opposed the measure to break up the company and pushed for a delay. Those board members criticized the way the reform commission went about “singling out” the Neersville company during an overall examination of the county's fire and rescue services.
In other board action Feb. 6 stemming from reform commission recommendations, the supervisors voted unanimously to make Loudoun Water increase its visibility and transparency. Loudoun Water will begin posting on the county's website meeting times and agendas, input sessions, rate increases and other public information. Additionally, the water and sewer utility will work with county to develop standards of appointment for its board members.
The Board of Supervisors also directed leaders of the county's Parks and Recreation Department to implement a plan aimed at raising more revenue for its Adult Day Care Program. The parks and recreation department is expected to bring back a recommendation to the board's Finance Committee by April.
