During the Board of County Supervisors meeting on January 10, Chairman Corey Stewart delivered the annual State of the County Address highlighting the successes and challenges the county faced during 2016.
“As we look back at 2016, there is much to reflect on. We had triumphs. We had tragedies. Yet, through it all, one thing is clear. You, your businesses, and your families continue to make Prince William County a community where people choose to live and businesses choose to locate. And the Board of Supervisors continues to invest in the community by funding initiatives that enhance the quality of life that our citizens expect and deserve while keeping your tax bills the lowest in the region,” said Stewart.
