The good

  • Contact information for county board members is posted.[1]
  • Contact information for county administrative staff is available via the department pages.[2]
  • Information about county taxes is comprehensive.[3]

The bad

  • County board members' term dates are not posted.
  • Only proposed but not the actual adopted budgets are available for current and previous years.[4] Also, no financial reports or audits are posted.
  • The listing of county board meeting minutes and agendas appears incomplete. [5]
  • Invitations for bids are posted, but there does not appear to be a listing of recently awarded contracts, or general information pertaining to the bidding and contract award process.[6]
  • 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.[7]
