There are a number of organizations in Fluvanna County that provide valuable services to the less fortunate that we all know exist in our communities. One of these organizations, Fluvanna Habit for Humanity, provides the most basic service – that of providing safe, decent, affordable housing for worthy low income families in Fluvanna County. The cost of providing this shelter however, does not come cheap. Fluvanna Habitat is constantly searching for ways to acquire funds to purchase home sites and construct homes.

In that one swayed vote, favoring a lower tax rate, and with deliberate efficiency, it forced the members of the school board and school administrators to seek possible solutions to an impossible task, more cuts to the school budget that was skeletal at best.
