Councilors pick up committee assignments from vacant seat

The resignation of City Councilor Sena Magill earlier this month also means that the remaining Councilors had to fill the vacancies she also left on other committees. In addition to attending Council meetings, each elected official serves on several boards and commissions as the official representative from Council. 

“We’re not filling every position that she had had but these are ones that have something going on right now for which its important to have the members right now,” said Charlottesville Mayor Lloyd Snook. 

Councilor Brian Pinkston will now serve on the Albemarle Charlottesville Regional Jail Board. In a future installment of this newsletter, I’ll write about the financing agreement for the renovations that are being planned. Charlottesville partners with Albemarle County and Nelson County to maintain the facility. 

The next meeting of the ACRJ Board is on February 9. (meeting info)

Vice Mayor Juandiego Wade will serve now on the Workforce Development Board for the Piedmont Region. Their information is all on their website but I did not see a listing for an upcoming meeting.
