I’ll try to post a wrap-up of the Senate debate coverage tomorrow, but here’s a quick round-up of four stories you should know about:
-In an interesting public-private partnership, Shentel has helped maintain the county school system’s summer enrichment program for this summer
-In a bizarre turn of events, the county is accepting sealed bids for the trunks of the trees that were removed from the Courthouse square last month. Apparently, because one gentleman asked for them some time ago, the county has to treat this situation the same way they would the deaccession of any other piece of public property. Bids must be in by 2 p.m. on July 30th. Your tax dollars at work.
-The Department of Planning and Zoning has released the dates for the first steering committee hearing for the revision of the county’s subdivision ordinance. This is a process all stake holders need to be involved in.
-U.S. News and World Report is spilling ink raising the profile of Governor Tim Kaine as a possible veep pick for Obama. Yes, the very same Governor Kaine who is now the proud owner of a 48% approval rating.
