Shenandoah Plans for New Sheriff’s Office Move Forward

28 September 2018 News


In a series of Tuesday night votes, the Shenandoah County Board of Supervisors took steps to push the construction of a new Sheriff’s Office and Emergency Communications Center forward.

One 5-1 vote saw the supervisors add an ordinance amendment to the county’s fiscal 2019 budget to include those projects, as well as the replacement of the public safety radio system. They added $11 million for the radio system alone, according to reports; an additional $8.75 million was allotted for the Sheriff’s Office and Emergency Communications Center complex, bringing the total to $19.75 million.

Supervisors also voted 5-1 to approve an agreement with Davenport Company LLC for financial advisory services, specifically to explore bond financing through the Virginia Resource Authority for the project. The lone dissenting vote Tuesday came from Supervisor Richard Walker, who voiced concerns that the language of the motion for the budget amendment’s didn’t specify where exactly funding for the projects would come from.
