Stafford leaders stay same
Stafford supervisors elect leaders for the year, schedule a special weekend meeting

Date published: 1/7/2011

The Stafford Board of Supervisors will maintain the status quo in 2011. Mark Dudenhefer will remain chairman and Paul Milde will stay on as vice chairman.

Dudenhefer was unanimously elected by fellow board members. Milde retained his title on a party line 5-2 vote, with supervisors Bob Woodson and Harry Crisp, both Democrats, voting no.

There will be some minor changes to the structure of board meetings this year.

Starting in February, the twice-monthly board meetings will begin at 3 p.m. rather than 1 p.m. Supervisors will still meet on the first and third Tuesdays of the month, but the afternoon session will run from 3 p.m. until about 6 p.m. Evening sessions--when most public hearings are held--will still begin at 7 p.m.

One meeting not following that schedule is a special board meeting tomorrow in the Stafford Hospital Center conference room. The Saturday session will begin at 8 a.m. and run until about noon.

Although the Stafford School Board holds annual "retreats" outside of their regular meetings, 8 a.m. on Saturday is an unusual time for a Stafford Board of Supervisors meeting.

Some supervisors have said that it will be more convenient for commuters who can't make it to weekday or evening meetings.

An agenda was not available as of press time, but supervisors plan to discuss their priorities for the year along with the upcoming fiscal 2012 budget.
