The water in this town is astronomical and not quality water.
I love how everyone is complaining and yet the town doesn’t care. There pockets get filled with cash while we hurt to pay there stupid rates for some Sh$tty water that none think is quality.
“Out of town limits” Strasburg water has and always will be a total and complete rip off. Water/sewer bill was $200/mo. Moved to culpeper and water/sewer bill has been a steady $50/mo and we’re still “out of town limits” 🤣😂
Yeah! Just what I wanted another rate increase. It's not like my water bill is already higher than my electric bill or anything, that's sarcasm incase anyone didn't notice that.
For a household of two in Lynchburg, we paid between $35 and $40 a month for water. In Strasburg, we’ve paid anywhere from $70 to $200 a month, and NO ONE at the town office can explain why.
I paid less when I lived in Manassas. Water out here is bullshit.
What the hell????? Seriously??? Strasburg water must have gold in it!!!! Complete sarcasm because Strasburg water is awful!!
Just moved here this is not giving me hope
Strasburg just loves taxing their citizens to death.
I think it's a rip off.... extremely high for a couple of 2 with a few grandchildren over during the week... it's higher than our electric bill with the a.c. going....

Pool needs to be fixed,children come out with blisters on feet from chipped up bottom
Could someone explain this constant closing of the pool for "chilly" temperatures? I've lived all over Virginia, including a few of your neighboring towns and this is the first time I've ever seen a pool close for this reason. If you were talking 50 degree weather or torrential downpours all day, I might could get behind you closing. But setting the bar at above 70 degrees seems a bit crazy.
My children swam in a pool this last Sunday in 64° weather in the pouring rain.
Just a reminder --- Town Real Estate and Personal Property taxes are due TODAY. To avoid penalty, have your mailed payment postmarked with today's date or drop in our night box tonight. Any payments received in the night drop box after 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 6, will be considered late and late fees will be added.

I heard that a POO did happen on Friday in the kids pool & they closed it. Maybe something transferred to the adult pool. I’ve never liked the idea that children with a dipper/pull-up go in the adult pool. It probably is the filtration system.
It didn't pass health code? Everyone swims in the poisoned river anyway
Can't even keep a pool open and functional for the town
Other nearby towns, like Front Royal and Stephen's City, have pools, for those who really want to visit a pool this weekend and don't have their own swimming pool.
What serious issues?
Sandy Palmer another summer with the same issues at the pool smh
I've been told to address my concerns on Rich's condition on this page. If the town could update everyone on his condition it would go a long way to dispel rumors. My continued best wishes for his recovery. Thank you in advance.
Sure is one long investigation.
Sober my A** 😂😂 he nor the town getting off this one good luck. I know too many people in higher places that says different. That's why the state police is involved with the investigation. Help from core-labs out of Inova Fairfax county hospital will beg the differ 😮with what his BAC was js.
Any update on the mayors condition Town of Strasburg
Is the Mayor getting charged with reckless handling of a motorized vehicle ? Driving a motorized vehicle drunk and endangering life's of the people ? Or is that just for the normal tax paying citizens ? We want answers chief
Well him and his wife were driving around drunk all night last night so maybe that has something to do with the accident? And of course Strasburg police didn’t do anything about them driving intoxicated. I guess they didn’t wanna have to arrest the mayor at his own event! I guess that’s KARMA for screwing people out of money on a consistent basis.
Some of us citizens are contacting national news sources. 7on your side etc this has stop
Press charges and dismiss him as mayor
What was his B.A.C?
He was drunk on a golf cart way to go Strasburg
DON'T DRINK AND DRIVER PERIOD!! I don't care who you are,,,, I lost my son-in-law from a drunk driver
Hey cuz Rich Orndorff Jr. Hope your healing well try not to let media get you down ...God Bless
Prayers that he is ok!
March 2018? Haha.
Sending prayers and God's grace for you all, on eagles wings
Where was you police when he and his wife was in the gold cart driving and drinking around town allday ? Of forgot he signs the paychecks get the fu** out here we as tax paying citizens that pay y'all's salaries demand answers. What if he had run over someone and hurt or killed them ? Would the town still stand behind him ? As if have said on the what's happening in Strasburg site before I was bullied and blocked from speaking my mind and told I don't have freedom of speech even on a private site lmao this towns citizens need to stand up and vote corruptione out DRIAN THE SWAMP ASAP . FROM POLICE TO MAYOR TO THE TOWN COUNCIL MEMBERS .
When you get caught drinking at apple blossom weekend you get arrested and don't get out till Monday morning lol

With our area receiving over 60 inches of rainfall last year it can be difficult to determine if standing or flowing water is caused by rain or an underground water line leak.
The water mains are installed three to six feet beneath the surface of the public right-of-way. Water can surface near the leak or travel several hundred yards underground from the leak and surface within the right-of-way or on private property.
If you notice clear water bubbling from the surface, similar to a natural spring, in an area that usually has no flowing water then it may be a water line leak.
If you do spot a possible water leak please contact your Public Works Department at 465-3025 or report using yourgov.cartegraph.com. We will be happy to investigate the area to determine if it is an actual water line leak. ... See MoreSee Less
