The outrage continues to spill over after the Richmond School Board votes not to rezone the overcrowded River City Middle School.

Councilman Michael Jones and School Board member Nicole Jones will hold a press conference at River City Middle at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday over this critical rezoning issue.

School board members at odds over vote against rezoning overcrowded middle school

River City was already over capacity when it opened last year, and this fall is expected to have more than 1,600 kids enrolled.

Some board members believe they can still come up with a new solution before RPS’ Open Enrollment deadline in early May.

The River City rezoning proposal is again on the school board agenda on Monday, May 2 - but whether they’ll take another vote still remains to be seen.

Chesterfield Tax Headache

If you live in Chesterfield County, you may have noticed a spike in personal property taxes, especially when it comes to your car.

We’re on your side, getting answers from Chesterfield after many of you reached out to us about your personal property taxes.

Used cars with hundreds of thousands of miles on them are being valued at thousands of dollars more than last year.

The reason: used car values skyrocketed across the U.S. - they are up more than 35 percent.

That’s because the pandemic halted new car production - raising the value of used cars.

Karl Brauer, the executive analyst with iSeeCars.com spoke about this.

“It’s just related to the supply chain issue, we just do not have enough pieces of computer equipment,” Brauer said. “It’s actually getting a little worse and it’s causing a lack of new car availability. When we don’t have new cars, you keep your current car, which causes a lack of used car availability.”

To appeal the assessment of your vehicle’s value, you can file that appeal online at the county’s website.
