MEETINGS

As an independent political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Virginia, the JIDA is subject to the same rules that govern any public body.  Accordingly, open meetings are held regularly. The public is invited and attendees are given the opportunity to speak during citizens’ time.

The JIDA Board of Directors generally meets monthly on the 4th Thursday at 3:00pm in the Town of Wytheville Council Chambers at 150 E. Monroe Street in downtown Wytheville. If you need special accommodations, please contact the office at 276-223-3370.

JIDA staff reports to each local governing body, typically at their joint meeting and at others times, as well.

If you have questions about the JIDA or how it operates, please let us know. We also welcome your comments at any time, especially during our monthly meetings. Other times, feel free to write, call, or e-mail us.  Contact information is available here.
