James City County Board of Supervisors members Jim Icenhour (Jamestown district) and Michael Hipple (Powhatan) recently appeared at Ford’s Colony’s Town Hall Meeting to brief residents on the “State of the County.”
The supervisors are invited each spring to speak on and address audience questions regarding county budgets, taxes, education, development, transportation, security and other subjects of local interest.
Icenhour, a Ford’s Colony resident, detailed the board’s achievements over the past year, including the adoption of the county’s 2045 Comprehensive Plan. Other accomplishments he noted included redistricting to balance the surge in Stonehouse-area growth and the decision to add pre-K space to existing buildings to reduce overcrowding in elementary schools.
Hipple lauded the pending county arrival of the communications company Shentel, from Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, which will bring customers the option of fiber optic cable and a new choice for phone, TV and internet services.
