The public is invited to attend the Superintendent Dr. Aldridge Boone’s “State of the Schools” address to the community. The event will be held Thursday, Oct. 21, at 6 p.m. in the Rappahannock County High School Auditorium. Copies of the school division’s annual report will be available at that time.

There being no business to come before it, and after consultation with the chair, the regular October meeting of the Rappahannock County Planning Commission has been canceled.

Rappahannock County tax bills for 2010 have been mailed and must be paid or postmarked on or before Dec. 5, to avoid penalty. Failure to receive a bill through the mail does not relieve the taxpayer of any additional charges that will accrue under law for failure to pay within the prescribed time. Treasurer’s Office Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. For more information, call Frances A. Foster, Treasurer, 540-675-5360.
