CB celebrates 120 year anniversary

History to be proud of and a place where you can be proud to live. 

It’s proper to celebrate the birth of a town that is unique in so many ways, a town that 120 years ago, on February 25, 1892, was incorporated. This incorporation was the beginning, not just of a town, but of a community of God-loving, hardworking families, many whom are descendants of the founders. And that’s something to be proud of!

In 1492, the start of a great country began. 400 years later, in 1892, Colonial Beach became a town, after having first being settled in 1650. That was 362 years ago when Andrew Monroe first settled here. Andrew Monroe was the great-great grandfather of the 5th President of the United States, James Monroe.

In honor of the occasion, the Colonial Beach Town Council has passed a proclamation expressing its pride, commitment, and dedication to the founding principles which

FEMA has notified Colonial Beach that it has obligated $31,000 reimbursement for trash clean up on public property and storm preparations, for Hurricane Irene.

Because the reimbursement does not cover private assistance or pick up of private debris the town will bear the costs associated with residential removal of debris.

There is still more paperwork and red tape before the Town sees any of this money but it is still

Tim Trivett questions CB Volunteer Rescue Squad activities

Tim Trivett spoke out at Thursday’s Town Council Meeting as a private citizen airing concerns regarding activity by unnamed members of the Colonial Beach Rescue Squad. Holding leadership responsible, he raised concerns that vehicles with emergency tags were being driven at high speeds through town streets with no regard for public safety.
“For too long now, there have been a couple of vehicles that have emergency tags on them that’ve been flying up our streets, Bancroft and all into the town for emergencies and not showing any regard.” Trivett questioned whether the council would be liable for accidents resulting from a member responding to a call.
Trivett implied that some of these incidents were unwarranted, saying, “We have people that are untrained running to the scenes, to medical emergencies, it’s even after some of these scenes have already been secured and you have medical personnel there.”
Trivett also addressed the personal use of rescue squad saying, “these vehicles are being used for personal use, on a regular basis, on a daily basis!”
