WCA Owner/Tenant Contact Update Form

(click here)

Maintaining current contact information helps the board and its committees reach owners and tenants with important board announcements as well as during emergency events such as a water/gas main break or to report storm damage to vehicles or other property.  Each owner and paying tenant should complete a separate form.  Non-resident owners should enter their address at the end of the form.  Note: You do NOT need to have a Google account in order to update and submit the form.

Hunter Mill District News, September 2, 2020

Sept. 2, 2020

Dear Neighbors,

It's hard to believe it's the end of summer! It has certainly not been the summer any of us envisioned at the beginning of the year. However, I do hope you and your families were able to find some time to relax and enjoy the many amenities we have in Hunter Mill District, including our beautiful trails and lakes.
On a personal note, much of my summer was spent recovering from triple bypass heart surgery, which was an unexpected turn of events for me and my family. The overwhelming number of good wishes was very much appreciated. I am starting to ease back into my duties as your supervisor but I expect it will take another month or so until I am back 100 percent. My staff has done a stellar job of responding to your questions and concerns and I encourage you to continue to reach out to them at huntermill@fairfaxcounty.gov, or 703-478-0283.
And since we are coming up on Labor Day weekend, I also want to take a moment to thank the thousands of Fairfax County employees who have worked tirelessly to serve our residents during the pandemic – while also taking care of their families and loved ones under these unique circumstances. While either frontline or behind a desk, our workforce took on the enormous task of going virtual, learning new skills and in many cases learning new jobs. Some examples include our public information officers who have worked 12-hour shifts for several months to provide residents with up-to-date and fast-changing information on a number of communications platforms. Our Department of Information Technology has also been fantastic, successfully steering our 12,000+ workforce through “the world’s largest telework experiment." Our Office of Elections staff have been working long hours to successfully organize the elections earlier this summer (with all regular voting locations fully operational) and plan for an historic Election Day during a pandemic. And the list goes on. It is because of the dedication of our employees that we have continued to be able to serve our constituents and keep our government working for you.
And finally, happy back to school day to all the Hunter Mill District students beginning the 2020-2021 school year on Sept. 8. This school year will be challenging for students, parents, teachers and support staff and the Board of Supervisors will continue to support the School Board as they make the hard calls on educating our children during the pandemic.
