WINDSOR — The Windsor Volunteer Fire Department has gone 10 months without funding from Isle of Wight County as of the end of April, according to Capt. Dale Scott.

A group of residents concerned about ISLE 2040 filed a petition yesterday in Isle of Wight Circuit Court to stop a waterline to Gatling Pointe.

The petition for a writ of mandamus alleges the proposed $2 million waterline to Gatling Pointe violates Isle of Wight County’s comprehensive plan that advises planners not to extend public utilities beyond the Newport Development Service District. It also alleges that the Board of Supervisors violated the Code of Virginia by authorizing funding for the waterline by approving the fiscal 2016 budget on May 1.

The petition is being brought by Betsy Eagan, Bill Eagan, Lawrence Pitt, Albert Burckard and Herb DeGroft.

Every year, the Isle of Wight/Surry chapter of the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life holds a ceremony tallying its donations, celebrating survival and honoring loved ones lost.
