Round Hill To Fill Council, Commission Seats

The Town of Round Hill is looking for qualified residents interested in serving on the Town Council and Planning Commission.

An interim candidate is sought to fill a vacancy created by the Nov. 24 resignation of Councilwoman Kim Fortunato, who was elected to council in May. The Town Council will appoint a resident to serve as an interim council member until November 7 next year, when a special election will be held. The winner of the special election will serve the remainder of Fortunato’s term, through June 30, 2020.

The council meets twice a month on first and third Thursdays.

The application form is available on the town website, roundhillva.org, and residents should also submit a letter of interest and a résumé. The deadline is 3 p.m. Dec. 22. The council plans to review the applications Jan. 5, then announce an interview schedule, and to make the selection by the end of January. The new council member will be seated at the Feb. 2 council meeting. For more information, contact Town Administrator Buster Nicholson at 540-338-7878.

There also is a vacancy on the Planning Commission, which meets on the first Tuesday of each month. Candidates can submit the same application package as for council. There also will be new committees formed to assist the town in implementation of the 2017 Round Hill Comprehensive Plan. Those interested should contact Town Planner Melissa Hynes at 540-338-7878.
