Website evaluation

Main article: Evaluation of Virginia county websites


The good

  • Contact information for elected county officials[1] and county administration[2] are available.
  • Term dates for county board members are posted.[3]

The bad

  • County board meeting agendas and minutes are available for previous years, but not for the most recent months.[4][5]
  • No budget, financial reports or audit information is posted.
  • There is no information regarding vendor bids and contracts.
  • There is no information about the county's association with lobbyists. However, the Virginia Association of Counties lists the county as a member.[6]
  • The listing of county taxes is not updated, and it is not easily found on the site.[7]
  • The site's search function does not work. The navigation is poorly designed and confusing.
