Fireworks at Augusta Board of Supervisors meeting

There were heated words and disgruntled citizens at tonight's Augusta County Board of Supervisors meeting when residents, upset at the prospect of 33% increases in their real estate reassessments, showed up to express disappointment.

Pastures Supervisor Tracy Pyles proposed postponing reassessments for two years to see if the shaky economy stabilized. The other six supervisors were against that idea.

Lots more on this tomorrow ...

This is sure to be a long fight, Lynn. Friendships will be broken; voters will be betrayed; it could get real ugly.

We had a similar fight in Spotsy this past spring. Best of luck to you guys!
