Website evaluation

Main article: Evaluation of Virginia county websites

The good

  • The homepage includes a link to the Virginia Association of Counties, which lists the county as a member.[3]
  • Building inspection requests can be made online.[4]

The bad

  • County board member information only includes email addresses, and their term dates are not listed.[5]
  • County board meeting minutes are available for current and previous years, but not for the most recent months.[6]
  • Only the current year's budget is posted.[7]
  • Requests for bids are posted, but there is no listing of awarded contracts.[8]
  • No zoning information was found.
  • No information is available about how to make FOIA requests, and there appears to be no record of the county's FOIA compliance.
