ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) -

People in Albemarle County can now weigh in on strategies to keep area streams clean.

On Thursday, November 1, the county held a community meeting to give feedback on seven proposals.

A total of 13 are on the table, and they’re based on comments and suggestions from the public that were received in 2017.

Among them is an expansion of the water protection ordinance's definition and increased fees for those who violate the rules.

“We want their feedback, their input about the draft proposals that we've put together,” David Hannah, the county’s natural resources manager, said. “So we want to hear what they like or don't like about them, if we have left things out - we just want to hear what they have to say."

People can check out these proposals on the county's website and give their input through an online survey.
