A few items of information for you or your association newsletter:
The Board Corner: Perspectives from Penny – Happy New Year! As 2019 begins, thoughts turn to weather, the Virginia General Assembly session, and new tax forms. In this newsletter, you will find helpful information from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) about how to prepare for, and cope with, winter weather that we know is in our future. Links to VDOT's resource information may be loaded into your phone or other device so that you can see current updates as needed. Please drive safely, and remember to clear snow from all of your vehicle, not just the windows. Sheets of icy snow can peel off your vehicle roof and become dangerous missiles for drivers behind you.
