The seven members of the Louisa County Board of Supervisors will meet at 5 p.m. for a closed session and convene in open session at 6 p.m. (meeting overview)

One of the first items of business is to approve the minutes from the October 16 meeting. These can be reviewed now before approval. (take a look)

There are eight items on the consent agenda, several of which have to do with capital projects for volunteer rescue stations. There’s also an amended performance agreement between the county, Crossing Pointe LLC, Get Active LLC, and GW & FW Holdings. Among other things, the new agreement would increase the tax rebate associated with the agreement from $250,000 to $500,000. (read the new agreement)
