Delegate Paula Miller appeals to the City for senior property tax relief

The following email on the subject of senior property tax relief was sent by Delegate Paula Miller to the City Manager, Mayor and Council:

Subject: Del. Paula Miller on Senior Tax Relief

Dear Mayor Fraim, City Manager Williams and Members of City Council:

As you prepare the budget for presentation and passage I hope that you will commit to including the additional Senior Citizen Tax Relief that was approved this winter by the General Assembly.

My bill (HB270) was rolled into HB1503 and raises the income eligibility restrictions for tax exemptions for senior citizens and the permanently disabled from $62,000.00 to $67,000.00 for Norfolk residents, effective July 1, 2008.

As you’re well aware, property tax increases are still of major concern to all Norfolk residents and since the Homestead Exemption was killed in the Virginia Senate this is one piece of additional tax relief that we can at least provide to our qualifying seniors and disabled residents in Norfolk.   A number of folks have asked me when they can expect the income limit to be raised as a result of my bill.  I have promised them I would be making the request of city council.  The relief is available but the legislation is permissive.  PLEASE help ensure additional relief for these seniors by raising the income limit on July 1, 2008. 

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me. 


Delegate Paula Miller



“Best help citizens can provide would be any information on the two tone Ford F-150”

April 30, 2008

I just received the following email from our 3rd Patrol Division P.A.C.E. Officer Lietenant Roger Hungerford concerning the murder of Navy Lieutenant Todd Cox on Beverly Avenue last Thursday night:

As a follow up to the Beverely murder I am hearing that a lot of people think this is a gang initiation or a random act. I can tell you it was neither. As is common with most murders, this had some underlying factors that tied the killer to the suspect. The best help citizens can provide would be any information on the two tone Ford F-150 that was used by the killer. If anyone saw anything related to the murder (especially any license info) that night and has not been reported, please urge them to contact PD. They can contact me 613 8593 or 423-4448  Officer Jackson or Hubbard (823-4478).



Lt Roger Hungerford
