Public Hearings

Participation


The Board of Supervisors appreciates your interest in the Stafford County Government and welcomes your participation. The public has two opportunities to comment during board meetings: during the public presentation section of the meeting and during a public hearing on a particular issue.

Request to Speak


If you would like to speak at a meeting, send an email request to Marcia Hollenberger and include the meeting date, your name, and address.
