Mount Vernon District Hosts 21st Annual Town Meeting

Mount Vernon District Supervisor Gerry Hyland will host the 21st annual Mount Vernon Town Meeting on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 7:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Mount Vernon High School’s Little Theatre, 8515 Old Mount Vernon Road, Alexandria.

“Directed primarily to residents of the Mount Vernon District, the meeting is open to all residents of the county,” said Hyland. “I want to provide a local forum to hear the significant issues involving Mount Vernon as well as countywide affairs while creating the opportunity for residents to meet their elected representatives and express their views and concerns.”

Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Gerald E. Connolly will make remarks on the county's priorities for 2008.  Panelists scheduled for the town meeting include County Executive Anthony H. Griffin; Fort Belvoir Base Commander Col. Brian Lauritzen; School Board Chairman Daniel Storck; Deputy Fire Chief David McKernan; James Patteson, director of Land Development Services, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services; and Captain Michael Kline, Mount Vernon Police station commander. The presentations will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

As part of the town meeting, Hyland will guide a “virtual bus tour” of the Mount Vernon District.

Starting at 7:45 a.m., displays and exhibits will be available in the cafeteria along with beverages, doughnuts and breakfast pastries before the presentations, which begin at 9:30 a.m. Fairfax County agencies will provide information and answer questions, including representatives from the Office of Public Affairs, Department of Family Services, Fairfax County Park Authority, Police Department, Fire and Rescue Department, Animal Services Division, Department of Tax Administration, and Stormwater Management Division. Also exhibiting in the cafeteria will be Fort Belvoir, the Virginia Department of Transportation and Inova Health Services among others.

Residents can bring their rechargeable batteries for cell phones and PDAs for recycling, as well as old cell phones and eyeglasses for donation.
