A business forum attracted Fluvanna business ownersBusiness owners, workers, and county staff gathered at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church Thursday evening (May 19) to discuss impediments to operating a successful business in Fluvanna County.

The community business forum drew about 40 people, many of whom shared ideas about how Fluvanna can better support its businesses.

“This is your meeting,” said Jason Smith, director of community and economic development, to the gathered business people. “We want feedback and we want to create that action step so that we can continue to improve our process in helping small business and providing what the community needs.”

Think twice before you light up a cigarette the next time you drive.

Virginia is cracking down on smoking in a motor vehicle with young children around. As of July 1 it will be against the law to smoke in a vehicle, whether moving or at rest, if a child under age 8 is in the vehicle.

Breaking this law will be deemed a secondary offense, “which means we cannot initiate a traffic stop or take enforcement action unless there is some other criminal violation,” said Lt. Dave Wells of the Fluvanna County Sheriff’s Office.

The offense will be enforced much like seat belt violations, Wells said. “If a driver is stopped for another offense and they are smoking with a person younger than 8 in the vehicle, they can be ticketed,” he said. “The burden is on us to prove that the child is less than 8 years of age.”

Breaking the law will result in a civil penalty punished by a $100 fine which will be paid into the state treasury and credited to the Literary Fund, according to Virginia code.

People breaking the law will not be arrested but may receive a ticket, Wells said.
