Greene County Looks at Ways to Deal with Aftermath of Severe Flooding

GREENE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) -

A first-of-its-kind town hall in Greene County is giving people a chance to weigh in on some of the issues the area is facing.

Supervisors provided updates on several projects, including where the county stands on dealing with the aftermath of severe flooding that occurred over the summer.

The county is working with several state and federal agencies to make changes in order to help keep what happened six months ago from happening again.

“This is not something that the county can take on themselves,” Melissa Meador, the county’s emergency services coordinator, said. “Without the assistance of VDOT and other state and federal agencies, we're not going to be able to make the necessary changes."

Supervisors say this style of meeting provides a relaxed and informal way of engaging people who live in the county.

Now, the focus shifts to preparing for what could be a rough winter.
