Will fireworks fly at tonight's Augusta BoS meeting?

After what was reported to be a contentious exchange at Monday's Augusta County Board of Supervisors staff briefing between supervisors Tracy Pyles (D-Pastures) and David Beyeler (R-South River), tonight's public meeting may spark some fireworks. The issue is staggered terms for supervisors, an idea Mr. Pyles supports and Mr. Beyeler does not.

As reported in the Waynesboro News Virginian:
Augusta County supervisor Tracy Pyles seeks clearance from fellow supervisors tonight to use the services of County Attorney Patrick Morgan in reviewing his staggered terms petitions.

Pyles wants to use petitions to get the necessary voters signed to bring his idea for staggered supervisor terms to a referendum. But he has been advised to seek a legal opinion on whether the petition complies with the Virginia Code.
There are other interesting agenda items tonight. The public is invited and encouraged to attend at 7:00 p.m. at the Government Center located on Rt. 11 in Verona.
