Website evaluation

Main article: Evaluation of Virginia county websites

The good

  • County board members' contact information is posted.[1] Contact information for county administrative department officials is also available on the departments' web pages.
  • County board meeting agendas[2] and minutes[3] are available for current and previous years.
  • County budgets,[4] comprehensive financial reports and audits are available for current and previous years.[5]
  • Current requests by the county for bids[6] and information about recently awarded contracts[7] are posted.
  • Tax information is posted and taxes can be paid online.[8]

The bad

  • The term dates of elected county officials are not available.
  • No information is available about how to make FOIA requests, and there appears to be no record of the county's FOIA compliance.
  • There appears to be no information about any arrangements with lobbying associations the county may have. However, the Virginia Association of Counties lists the county as a member.[9]
