Brabo said there were several benefits from her attending last year's convention. She was able to arrange a visit to the county by Sen. Mark Warner, and she brought back information about various scholarships and school programs.

REASSESSMENTS BEGIN

Officials with Blue Ridge Mass Appraisal already have visited 5,028 properties in King George, as part of the county's general real estate reassessment.

Representatives of the Staunton company have been leaving yellow door hangers when people aren't home, asking residents to fill out the information and send it back. Blue Ridge still has about 7,900 additional properties to visit, Jonathan Larsen, a field supervisor, said Tuesday.

"The citizens of the county have been made well-aware of what's going on," he said. "Almost all the time, when we arrive at a house, people know why we're there."

At this point, the company is making sure it has correct information about buildings and properties. Valuation will come later.

The reassessment will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2014. According to the Code of Virginia, each locality has to do a general reassessment to determine each property's fair market value and to make sure it is equal to similar properties in the area.

The last reassessment was effective Jan. 1, 2010. More information from the county about the process and a map showing the progress of reassessment is available at the county's website, king- george.va.us.

SERVICE RECOGNIZED

Terry Moore and Dr. Richard Kelly were recognized by the Board of Supervisors for their service with the King George County Economic Development Authority.

Moore served since 2004, when the group was known as the Industrial Development Authority, until the end of last year. He was secretary in 2005 and 2006 and vice chairman from 2007 to 2012.

Kelly served on the authority from February 2011 to December 2012.

Glen Moore, chairman of the group, thanked both men for their devotion to King George County.
