Board of Supervisor MEMBERS:
At the present time, Carroll County utilizes the County Board Form of Government authorized by Section 15.2 of the Code of Virginia.
The Carroll County Board of Supervisors consists of six members; one from each of the five magisterial districts and one at large member. Members of the Board serve four year staggered terms. The Carroll County Board of Supervisors regularly scheduled monthly meetings are held on the second Monday of each month unless otherwise posted. The monthly meetings start with a Closed Session at 3:30 p.m. and the Regular Public Session beginning no earlier than 5:00 p.m. in the Board Meeting Room of the Governmental Center unless otherwise posted on our County’s Facebook page at http://www.carrollfb.org. The Public Service Authority meets at 2:00 p.m. on the same date each month unless otherwise posted on our County’s Facebook page at http://www.carrollfb.org. All members of the public are invited and encouraged to attend.
Adjourned meetings are held when the Board knows of items of business to be considered at a later time or cannot complete its agenda on the regularly scheduled day. Special meetings may be held when unexpected items of business must be dealt with that cannot wait to be considered at a regular meeting. The meetings are made know to the media.
As a member of the Board of Supervisors, many decisions that affect the lives of all county citizens must be made. Among the most critical are those of preparing and adopting an annual budget and determining the tax rate necessary to provide services needed by our citizens. As cutbacks in state and federal spending are made as demands placed on local governments become greater, emphasis must be placed on making governments more efficient and productive. Other important duties of the Board are the adoption of various ordinances, approval of all claims paid, and the employing and guidance of County employees. The Board of Supervisors is also responsible for preparing the County to accommodate growth in an orderly manner. This includes construction of water and sewer lines, working toward the creation of employment, and participating in programs to create affordable housing and economic growth.
All meetings of the Board are open to the public and everyone is urged to attend. Citizens having business to present to the Board should confer with the County Administrator ahead of time so that you may be placed on the agenda.
