Topic Description:

On July 12, 2007, the Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution directing the County Administrator to schedule a public hearing on a proposed amendment to Section 13-51 of the Code of Fauquier County to add additional exceptions to the requirement to pay a local license registration fee.  These additional exceptions would exempt the following persons who live and work in the county from having to pay a local license registration fee on one personal vehicle owned or leased by them:  Deputy Sheriffs; Virginia State Police Officers; Municipal Police Officers; and paid Firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians.  These additional exceptions were authorized by the General Assembly as of July 1, 2007, by amendment to Section 46.2-752 of the Code of Virginia. The proposed effective date for this amendment is January 1, 2008. This amendment will also remove some redundancies that exist in the current section of the County Code.
