Website evaluation

Main article: Evaluation of Virginia county websites

The good

  • County board members' contact information and term dates are posted.[1] Meeting agendas[2] and minutes[3] are available for current and previous years.
  • Contact information for county administrative officials is posted on the individual departments' pages.[4]

The bad

  • Only the most current budget is posted.[5] No financial reports or audits were found.
  • Bid requests are posted,[6] but there is no listing of recently awarded contracts.
  • Information is available about how to make FOIA requests,[7] but 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.[8]
  • The site has no comprehensive listing of county taxes and rates.
