Social Services Website

The Virginia Department of Social Services, aware of our many concerns during COVID-19, has created a new website. It is designed to be a hub of information for all residents and businesses. Topics found on the site include child care, unemployment, housing, and more. If you have a question and are looking for an answer, click HERE.  Try out the app for your phone, too!

Trash and Recycling

Starting Monday, May 4, sanitation workers will be out at 6 a.m.,one hour before their usual start. The new time will help them avoid the heat of the coming summer months. So don’t be alarmed by the truck rolling down your street earlier than expected.
