Like a clean Lynnhaven River?

From email invite:

Senator DeSteph asked me to let folks know that we have secured meeting space so that area Civic Leagues and other interested parties can meet regarding the Oyster Reefs in the Lynnhaven River and Broad Bay. It will be held Wednesday, July 6th at 6:00 pmat Wave Church on Great Neck Road.

The subject of this Public Hearing is the ongoing Lynnhaven River Basin Ecosystem Restoration Project. This project directly affects all recreational users and residents/homeowners of and along the Lynnhaven River, including Broad Bay, the Narrows, Linkhorn Bay, Lynnhaven Bay, Pleasure House Creek, Keeling Drain and other local tributaries.

This meeting will include affected Civic Leagues, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Lynnhaven River Now, and the VMRC. The Secretary of Natural Resources, the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) and the Army Corps of Engineers will be invited as well.

Please inform, invite & encourage your Civic League Members/residents to attend this public hearing if they are a boater, a waterfront resident, or a concerned citizen on the future of our waterways and fragile ecosystem.

Many thanks,

Jill

Council Adopts FY2022-23 Budget

From City Page at VBGov.com.

FY2022-23 budget has no increases to the solid waste fee, water service charges, sewer charges, stormwater charges, and avoids a real estate tax rate increase.

With the exception of a few fee increases for permits within the department of Planning and Community Development, the FY2022-23 budget and Capital Improvement Program (CIP) are supported through natural growth in citywide revenues. Below are some of the key elements in the upcoming budget.
