Residents waited more than three hours through an intense work session of the Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday (Aug. 17) focusing on land use policies in the county.

Land use, which gives significant tax breaks to land owners who dedicate their properties to farming, forestry, or open space, has come under the microscope in recent months.An eighth resident, Channing Snoddy, vice president of the Fluvanna Farm Bureau, sparred with Supervisor Tony O’Brien during the work session.

Tom EllisMany Lake Monticello residents have looked out across from the marina and seen a little village with a working train on a dock. Some may wonder at the unique idea, some think it’s clever, but others know it’s Tom and Kay Ellis who live there.

A civil engineer in his past life – designing water and sewer systems, treatment plants and other municipal facilities – Ellis currently loves to tinker and create. He is self-taught in the craft of woodworking and carving. Recently Ellis won second place in the intermediate category of the annual Fluvanna Art Association’s People’s Choice Award Show for his wooden sculpture Rivanna Food Chain.
