Residents woke up to plowed roads, but a few people were in disbelief. Some residents complained about the high snow left in front of their driveways by the plows, but for the most part, many residents were very pleased with the town’s response to, and management of last week’s snow.

Foulds follows up on audit report with an update on the budget

Although auditor Billy Robinson of Brown Edwards & Company, LLP issued the Town of Colonial Beach a clean opinion for fiscal year 2013, at the Nov. 21 council work session, he cautioned the council, “The town really needs to examine more closely, how far off the tax projections were to the actual taxes collected.

Town loses $20,800 in revenue in Hamilton St. sale

Every council has one. It seems that every council has at least one transaction, ordinance or resolution that blows up in its face.
