Since being elected to the Board of Supervisors seven years ago, Smithfield District Supervisor Al Casteen has been a regular at Smithfield Town Council meetings — until September.

“I just haven’t been attending. That was the calmest answer I could give you,” said Casteen about his longest absence since first briefing the board in 2008.

His absence coincides with the county’s decision not to give the town a piece of property off Battery Park Road and the town’s announcement that, as a result of the county’s action, it would consider annexing that property as well as other sites.
