Front Royal, Warren County working on joint projects; Park-N-Ride, Leach Run Parkway at top

FRONT ROYAL — Town and county officials don’t appear ready yet to talk about PILOT fees, consolidation or annexation. The former only got a brief mention at the recent bimonthly liaison meeting, and the other two weren’t mentioned at all, according to County Administrator Doug Stanley. Mayor Tim Darr informed the county that the town council is “evaluating the re-introduction of the PILOT fees in the corridor” as previously reported in The Warren Sentinel, Stanley said, but there was “no real discussion” on the issue. Officials from the two jurisdictions did, however, move forward on a number of other matters that have occupied their attention for most of this year.
