AROUND TOWN

Blackstone Town Council will hold a Continued Meeting today (Wednesday) at 6:00 p.m. to adopt a budget for 2020-21. The next budget, which takes effect July 1st, includes a $2.00 increase in monthly garbage collection fees to help the Town buy a new garbage truck. It also includes 3% raises for Town employees and higher raises in the police department to keep up with Nottoway County, where a starting deputy now makes about $42,000 per year. We’ll give you a raise rundown in our next edition. I’ve learned over the years that folks love reading about salaries...except their own.
