Dear Citizens,

With the County’s budget adopted, we are now preparing to close out FY2017-18 and start up a new fiscal year beginning July 1, 2018.  In the meantime, we are taking a few moments to recognize Memorial Day.
Memorial Day serves as a reminder to all of us of the sacrifices of those men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.  Some of them were native sons and daughters of Isle of Wight County and we pause to honor them for their service.
