Hanover Board debates proposal at meeting Wednesday night

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Hanover County Board of Supervisors is expected to adopt the $390 million proposed budget for next year on Wednesday.

Later in the evening, you can weigh in on a proposal that could save you time and money.

There's an option on the table to do away with county decals on cars.

In the past, the decals were used as a tax collection and public safety tool, but now, the only real purpose is to prove you live in Hanover so you can use a county landfill.

Some Hanover County leaders have proposed getting rid of the $10 decal and instead issuing Hanover car owners a free sticker to put on the car they use to haul away trash.

County leaders say that $10 fee may not sound like a lot, but it's a good place to start in saving taxpayers some money — especially those who have more than one car.

You can tell the board what you think about it at a public hearing starting at 7 p.m.
