BACKGROUND:

At the first meeting of January each year, the Board of Supervisors elects a Chairman and Vice-Chairman, establishes its meeting calendar and addresses other items related to its operation for the upcoming calendar year, including adoption of the Board’s “Rules of Procedure.” 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

This work session topic supports the County’s mission “to enhance the well-being and quality of life for all citizens through the provision of the highest level of public service consistent with the prudent use of public funds.”

 

DISCUSSION:

On December 12, Mike Chandler, Director of Education, Citizen’s Planning Education Association of Virginia, Professor Emeritus, Virginia Tech, will facilitate a “Code of Governance” work session to provide time for Board members to discuss operational and procedural items that may benefit the Board in the upcoming year. Mr. Chandler intends to contact Board members prior to the work session to assist him as he identifies topics for discussion. 

 

For the Board’s information, attached is the Board’s “Rules of Procedure” adopted in January 2007.
