Citizens’ actions speak louder than words

Those who did not speak showed their support with precisely timed applause, boos and other derogatory noises. At times, the audience stomped, clapped and booed in unison to drown out Council’s comments they didn’t want to hear. Residents, teachers and parents spoke in support of the school.

Town Hall evacuation necessary but not immediate

Update on mold at Colonial Beach Town Hall

Email notifications for special emergency meetings gave the impression that Colonial Beach town hall would be immediately evacuated and called the evacuation an emergency. Although the issues facing town hall are health and safety risks the evacuation will most likely not take place until after the July 4th weekend according to Town Manager, Val Foulds.

After passing a resolution at the June 12 Town Council meeting, to authorize Foulds to spend up to $130,000 to carry out mold remediation and safety repairs at Town Hall located at 18 North Irving Avenue, Foulds has announced they will be evacuating Town Hall by the beginning of July and moving operations to the old Primary Building, on the Colonial Beach elementary school campus, located at 315 Douglas Avenue.
