HB 192 (Minchew) provides an exception to the current moratorium on creating new cities to permit any town with a population in excess of 40,000 to apply for a city charter. Currently only the towns of Blacksburg and Leesburg would be eligible.

In other action, HB 14 (Ware) would repeal the charter of the Town of Columbia in Fluvanna County (population 82).

Both bills were reported out of Subcommittee #1 and should be considered by the House Counties, Cities and Towns Committee on Friday, January 29 at 8 am.
