Supervisors privilege special interests over taxpayers

Cash proffers on new development were eliminated by the Hanover County Board of Supervisors tonight in a 4-2 vote, with one member absent.

Supervisors also voted to advertise a public hearing January 9th on a proposal to implement a $10 per vehicle fee to raise approximately $1.3 million to replace current revenue from cash proffers.

Elsewhere, Chesapeake voted to keep but revise its proffer policy.
