Field work begins today in Campbell County for real estate reassessments.  The Board of Supervisors hired Wampler-Eanes Appraisal Group to do the work.  Those performing the work will have identification and magnets on their cars.  The assessors will take outside pictures of some properties, but will not do any interior inspections.  The work will continue into next year.  The reassessments will become effective in 2019.

Roanoke City Council will vote to authorize issuing bonds to pay for project laid out in the Capital Improvement Program.  The city will borrow $32.2 million dollars to fund projects.  The school system will get the most money, $12.7 million, for improvements.  Renovations at the Melrose Library will get $4.2 million. 

Pavement repairs will take place today on Williamson Road.  Only one northbound lane will be open today and tomorrow between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. as crews work between Madison Avenue and Orange Avenue.
