What does that mean for you? Where you vote, what district you live in and who represents you on the Board of Supervisors and in the Virginia State Senate and House of Delegates may have changed.
You can find the adjusted precinct and polling place information online and updated Voter Identification Cards will be mailed later this summer. For more information, contact the Voter Registrar at 757-253-6868 or by email.
National Night Out – On Tuesday, Aug. 2, join forces with over 15,000 communities nationwide for the 28th Annual National Night Out.
During the evening, residents throughout the County are asked to lock their doors, turn on porch lights and spend the evening outdoors with neighbors and police. Many neighborhoods are already making plans for block parties, cookouts, and visits from James City County Police and McGruff the Crime Dog.
To arrange for officers to attend your community event, contact Master Police Officer Richard Schugeld at 757-253-2058 or via email by July 28.
Getting ready for the storm – In the last issue of e-FYI, we focused on the importance of getting your supplies early. Another crucial part of any emergency plan is knowing where to go for local information before, during and after the hurricane.
Sending emergency information to citizens is something the County takes seriously. Sign up, log on or phone in…you can choose one or all:
Love live music? – Head out to the New Town After Hours concert series every Thursday night through Aug. 25, 6-9:30 p.m. at 4301 New Town Ave. in Sullivan Square, behind Legacy Hall. Admission is $7 for adults and kids 16 and younger are free. Tickets may be purchased online or at the concert. Concerts are held rain or shine.
In addition to great bands, the concerts feature fun activities for children with food and drink available for purchase. For more information including scheduled bands, visit the website. The concerts are offered in partnership with James City County, New Town Management and Inclusion, Inc.
Free movies and karaoke! – Chickahominy Riverfront Park is the place to be on Saturday nights in July.
You can register for the events in advance or at the park office. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Fireworks reminder – In James City County, the use, possession, display, sale or storage of fireworks is illegal. This includes fireworks that were legally purchased elsewhere. Violators may be jailed up to twelve months and/or fined up to $2,500.
County residents who have purchased or are in possession of fireworks are encouraged to turn them in at any County Fire Station or call the Fire Marshal’s office at 757-220-0626 for assistance. Individuals voluntarily surrendering fireworks will not be criminally charged.
