Augusta Supervisors Vote Against Ordinances, Adopt Staggered Terms

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday night, Augusta County supervisors decided against a couple of proposed ordinances.  One of the ordinances restricts panhandlers and the other addresses the issue of dogs barking in county subdivisions late at night.

Supervisors heard from the public on both issues.  A common concern regarding the barking dogs was how enforceable the ordinance would be.

"It is not a simple solution," said Deborah Cheezum, who lives in Augusta County.  "And it is very difficult.  It is not the animals' fault.  It is the responsibility of the dog owner."

Supervisors did however adopt staggered terms.  David Karaffa, Larry Wills and chair Tracy Pyles volunteered to run for two-year terms in 2015.
