The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors is moving ahead with plans to name an Ad Hoc Committee on Advisory Boards, although its membership will be decided later.
Although Supervisor Suzanne Volpe (R-Algonkian) suggested moving ahead with appointing members and having the panel starting its work when the proposal was aired at during the board’s first meeting today. However, County Chairwoman Phyllis Randall (D-At large) suggested the board wait until every board member was better acquainted with the idea.
“I think we can move on this expeditiously, I agree, but I don’t think everyone has been fully briefed,” Randall said.
County staff members advised that historically this effort has resulted in some consolidation of the county’s advisory panels—a total of 54 today—but few have been eliminated altogether.
