Before anyone agrees to all this mess they better ask some really hard questions. First of all how will it affect the tax payers of alleghany county? Will we have to pay two taxes like clifton forge does? What about hunting? It is illegal to discharge a firearm in the city limits. How can people hunt witout guns! What about people in the county that have wells? They are their own personal property so how is the city going to control that? What about people that do not have county septic ? We need to ask a lot of question before we go blindly into this! I have lived here all my life and I do not agree with any of this mess at all!

We cannot keep everything here status quo either while the counties around us continue to grow while we decline from having the economic mentality of the 50s & 60s. If you have a better idea then put it on the table but if you want to keep things status quo then you are not helping the ones that are under the age of 45 with the "same ol same ol" mentality. Also consolidation will not affect your precious hunting either. I have lived here most of my life too & I am all for it, I for one am tired of this area still living in the past!

FYI,not everybody here hunts.That is one of the main problems with this area trying to move forward, you have people here that still has the good ole boy mentality,& still stuck in the past.We live in 2010, not 1910!
