The time has come when the citizens of Urbanna should do what is
necessary, and return control over to the County where it would be a better situation for all.

The Elite will not like this idea, but it is so wasteful to have a town council, mayor, town manager, one or two employees, and all that goes with the running of a separate town Government, for what purpose, NONE, other than the idea that, " WE KNOW BEST " Come on,
Saluda, Deltaville, Hartfield, Waterview, do just fine, Urbanna is dieing under the many additional local zoning, architectual, and other regulations that have stifled the citizens and made visitors laugh at the folly.

The board of supervisors would treat Urbanna just as equal as all other citizens, and Urbanna citizens would benefit from this.

Wake up, it is time to do this, before Urbanna dries up from neglect and decay.

Extra food taxes, favorite citizen zoning regulations, and all the lonney tunes that get on town council, and especially the Goof ball Yankee, arogant town attorney, who adds nothing but more un-friendlyness to visitors and citizens alike.

I so agree with " AMERICAN" just read the various topics here concerning,

" Urbanna Police Services Contract "
" Town Administrator Embezzlement "
" Various other topics about the Town.

Yes, it makes much more sense to eliminate the dual governments, and instead allow Middlesex County to manage it as it does all the other towns within the county.

At the rate people are going to jail and dieing in Urbanna, it won't be very long before you will not need to transfer control of Urbanna back to the Middlesex County, it will not exist.

Businesses are dismal, tourism is dismal, boating is dismal, no gas for a boat in Urbanna, how many years has it has been that you could not refuel a boat in the town harbor, this town has been day after day destroyed by the idiotic actions of the past 15 years of the town council and it's failure to operate in a friendly, open logical manner.

They ass kissed Voltro for $25000, what a joke, denied the boathouse in the beginning, fought with
Marinas, home owners fences, paint colors, dogs, open fires, the location of the Oyster Festival, which has been ruined by moving it off of Virginia St,. and the fears of the Gustapo of beer drinking, what is wrong with this town, it is not AMERICANA, it is dull-villle, too many Janet Suzon Smiths, Megans, Andy Burys.

The fun is gone, businesses have suffered, many closed, why, just a dull bunch of people who continue to operate in a un-friendly manner, and oh yes, way too many Liberal Yankees and Democrats in the town who have also helped contribute to it's failing.

But, it is not too late, Town Council, Get rid of the food tax, make an honest effort to help businesses in Urbanna, move the Oyster Festival back to Virginia Street, get the Sheriff to loosen up on the war against alcohol within reason of modesty, abolish the Archetural board or whatever it is called, let people paint their house whatever color they wish, stop the Insainty before the town is dead.

I'll paraphrase a Mark Twain quote: I never wished anyone dead, but I've read many an obituary with great pleasure.

You won't see me weeping when this town finally strangles itself.
