In Brief: White Stone Sewer; Irvington Sidewalks

WHITE STONE SEWER PROJECT HAS MOVEMENT

White Stone is moving forward with its public sewer project. Council voted unanimously to have the town manager and mayor execute a contract to purchase property on which to locate the sewer’s wastewater treatment plant. It’s a 19.483-acre tract just outside of town limits on Mosquito Point Road at a cost of $250,000. Public utilities is an accepted use for the property, but the town will have to obtain zoning and building permits from the county with the required buffers around the treatment plant.

IRVINGTON SIDEWALK ISSUE RESOLVED

The question of just who will pay for and fix the crumbling sidewalks of Irvington has finally been resolved between the Town of Irvington and the Virginia Department of Transportation. AFter painstakingly researching historical records, VDOT was able to ascertain ownership of some sidewalks, while others could not be determined. The Rappahannock Record reports that council members last week passed a resolution accepting VDOT’s proposal for the state to take ownership of the sidewalks in question that are adjacent to state right-of-way. The town will be responsible for sidewalks not located on state right-of-way.
