Connectivity Update: Thanks to the many Page County residents that have filled out our internet connectivity survey. The purpose of this survey is to determine speeds and unserved areas because several maps (FCC specifically) are saying Page County is served by multiple providers. We know this is not the case and need your data to make our case. We are not alone and now the National Association of Counties has partnered with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), the Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP), the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) and Farm Credit to develop a mobile app designed to identify areas with low or no connectivity.
Follow the information below for the “TestIT” app and help Page County further our efforts in better connecting our community.
BIG NEWS! Congratulations are in order to the amazing staff at the Page County Animal Shelter. For the second year in a row, they’ve been designated “no kill” for maintaining an euthanasia rate of less than 10 percent for 2019, with an overall save rate of 94.6%!! They work with several rescue groups; Cat’s Cradle, Save the Tails, Ragged Mountain Dogs, Humane Society of Warren County, SPCA, to name a few, in order to make this happen. The huge strides the shelter has made are only achievable through the staff’s hard work, dedication and compassion for the animals in their care. If you see Jami, Shelby, Hali, Courtney or Danika, please let them know how much their efforts are appreciated! Thank you, ladies. Another proud day for Page County!! #pagecova#teampageco...

I certainly hope and request that the 2nd Amendment Resolution be passed unanimously !!!
Any resolution needing to use the phrase "slippery slope" to convey a point is pretty embarrassing.
I'd say stand around outside and be heard by chanting!!!!!!
why weren't we told about the Nov 19 meeting before now
Thanks Coty Young!!!!!!!
The resolution seems pretty vague about what bills are contrary to the 2nd amendment. It merely refers back to the language of the 2nd amendment while ignoring any subsequent interpretation by the courts.
Worse still, it is declaring any measures passed by the upcoming General Assembly as against the 2nd amendment, prior to any legislative process.
Is the BoS really proposing to usurp the role of the courts in interpreting the law? By declaring that the county won’t spend any funds to enforce laws that are contrary to the 2nd amendment, it sure does seem like it. That seems pretty radical and, well, lawless to me.
But here’s the thing: the county knows full well that it is not the authority that gets to determine whether laws are Constitutional. They also know perfectly well that the Democrats in Richmond and Washington aren’t intending to pass measures that are un-Constitutional. So the BoS gets to make its statement, and the people of the county rejoice over this little moment in the culture wars. But they’ll be in for a surprise when they discover that so much of what they think is un-Constitutional - like universal background checks, for instance - are completely valid.
Some people must be unaware of standing bills in Richmond. ￼￼A law like this is something that King George III would’ve passed. Not￼￼￼ a free people. This bill would have made Peter Mullenburg in Woodstock a criminal, or Gen. Joseph Warren or some guy named George Washington!! Just saying.
We might be able to request a special meeting like their doing in Shenandoah.
Oh great. so you want to contribute to the theatrics of government. All elected officials jobs are to enforce the law--how about put your efforts into arresting speeders on 340 or dong something about drug use. Sanctuary to evade possible laws? Stupid in the extreme.
Please watch this 1 minute video, of an Asian lady in Georgia, in 2016, successfully chasing away 3 armed home invaders. She emptied her gun doing this. Now imagine what might have happened if she had been limited to 10 rounds or less. Don't ever think this could NEVER happen to you. youtu.be/-_MRVnR6KI8
Not open to public comment?? Was a post made about the Nov. Meeting being OPEN TO PUBLIC? I SERIOUSLY DOUBT IT
