Updated: Board Schedules Special Meeting on December 4
A special meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 4, 6 pm at Stuarts Draft High School.
The Augusta County Board of Supervisors has heard from many concerned citizens about the possibility of Augusta County’s consideration to become a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary County. While the Board has a regular scheduled meeting on Tuesday, November 26, this issue is not on the agenda and will not be discussed that night.
Due to the interest in this topic, the Board has decided to schedule a special meeting on Wednesday, December 4, 2019, at 6 pm to hear comments from the public concerning this issue. Because of the anticipated number of citizens who are planning to attend this meeting, the meeting location will be changed to Stuarts Draft High School auditorium in order to accommodate increased attendance. The Board encourages citizens who are interested in this issue to attend on December 4, 2019.
