Tips to help keep mosquitoes at bay:
4th of July Fireworks will be shot off on the 4th, that’s Thursday, be prepared for some delays as the police will be directing traffic after the show. Fireworks are shot off from the municipal pier located at the east end of Hawthorne street. Residents with town stickers can park at any metered space for free.
Fireworks can be viewed very well from the Naval tower located at the Northern most side of the boardwalk and all the way to the end of the public beach leading out to the point.
As you pass the range tower on the point visibility becomes less optimal. Of course watching from a boat in the water is always a spectacular site. The Municipal pier will be closed early in the day to allow the pyrotechnic professional to set up for the show.
The fireworks start shortly after dark. Usually after 9 p.m. We hope you enjoy the show. As always if you have any questions please post them in the comments section and we will try to answer them all to the best of our knowledge.
Have a happy Independence Day!

SOLID WASTE DISPOSAL PROCEDURES
EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2019
Beginning July 1, 2019, residents of Westmoreland County, Virginia will be required to display the Westmoreland County Waste Disposal Permit in their vehicle when disposing of waste at any of the County’s three solid waste disposal sites. Persons not displaying the Westmoreland County Waste Disposal Permit will not be allowed to dispose of their waste at any site. Permits are available to residents at the Westmoreland County Treasurer’s Office, located at the rear entrance of the George D. English, Sr. Memorial Building, 111 Polk Street, Montross, VA. Permits are issued upon verification that all personal property and real estate taxes have been paid. Those residents who are renting should present proof of residency to receive their permits or ask the owner of the property for the use of the permit associated with the rental property.
Also effective on July 1st, Westmoreland County’s solid waste disposal convenience sites will no longer accept cash, check or credit card payments for the disposal of brush, tires, or electronics. Payment for the disposal of such items must be in the form of a Westmoreland County coupon. Coupons are available for purchase at the Westmoreland County Treasurer’s Office during normal business hours: Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (except during holidays and inclement weather). Coupons are non-refundable/non-transferable and will expire on June 30th of each fiscal year. Information regarding the 2019-2020 rates for the disposal of brush, tires, and electronics is available on the County website: www.westmoreland-county.org. If you should have any questions regarding these new procedures, please contact the Westmoreland County Treasurer’s Office at (804) 493-0124.
