Eye Health & Vision
Recent studies and research strongly link eye health to various conditions, including Alzheimer's. Advancements in technology and more research into the causes and effects of Alzheimer's disease have led to the realization that doctors can confirm a diagnosis by using refined eye examinations.
We created a guide that discusses the link between eyes and Alzheimer's, how the disease affects your eyes, the use of eye exams for early detection, and more! Please take a look at that, and our general Aging & Eyesight guide:
We recently published what we believe to be the most easy-to-understand guide on the ins and outs of medicare. This free resource highlights coverage, costs, eligibility, and enrollment information, along with answers to some frequently asked questions.
Board of Supervisors & PSA Actions Taken at August 8, 2022 Meetings
During their August 8, 2022 meeting, the Carroll County Public Service Authority decided to halt the previously approved water and sewer rate increases. This action was taken by the PSA Board of Directors to combat some of the rising costs seen by the citizens of Carroll County.
The Carroll County Board of Supervisors, during their August 8, 2022, meeting, approved to decrease the Personal Property Tax Rate on the new classification of motor vehicles and those similar as described in the Code of Virginia from $2.30 per $100 to $2.15 per $100. This action was taken to lessen the burden on citizens of the County due to the drastic increase of NADA values. The Board also approved an emergency ordinance to change the collection date of vehicle license fees. The new collection date for vehicles owned on January 1, 2023, will be December, 2023. The individual vehicle owner will not receive the annual $25.00 license fee on their 2022 personal property tax ticket as in previous years. The Board of Supervisors wishes to thank the Commissioner of Revenue and her staff for working with them to review and implement these changes.
