Does Woodbridge VA have a Mayor?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Real Estate Connections
Woodbridge is neither an incorporated borough, township, town or city and does not have a mayor or council normally associated with an incorporated location.

WHY YOU ASK? Woodbridge is a geographic location in Prince William County. It's boundaries are determined by 3 ZIP codes - 22191, 22192 and 22193

Here in the Commonwealth of Virginia if you live in a county (that's the vast majority of us) all of your services are provided by the county. That includes schools, public safety, water and sewer, courts, libraries, hospitals etc. The elected officials of the county are Supervisors and one of those folks is the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors. The day-to-day business of managing county agencies falls to the County Executive who serves at the pleasure of the Board of Supervisors. This is also true of the police chief, fire chief, and school superintendent. The sheriff is elected as is the clerk of court. Therefore, you only pay one tax - your real estate tax. You do pay a water and sewer bill since that is a function of your personal usage. Woodbridge gets along quite nicely without a mayor.

ARE THERE TOWNS and CITIES IN VIRGINIA? You bet there are. They have mayors and town or city councils just like other states. They provide all of their own services and do not normally receive services from the surrounding counties. However, there are instances where smaller incorporated towns and cities purchase services from the surrounding county such as school and water and sewer service. You may have a seperate tax to defray the cost of these purchased services, but they are usually included in your municipal tax.

Quaint? Not really, we've been doing it as long as there's been a United States of America and we fly the flag proudly in Woodbridge even though we don't have a mayor.

Karen--I know that the states out east do thinks a bit differently than other areas but didn't understand exactly how it works. Anyone relocating to Woodbridge would be wise to consult area experts such as you and Art for an explanation of the differences so they understand how the local government is run.

I lived in a area called North Lake, WI that had no Mayor and was unincorporated. It was ran very well, and it thrived just fine as well.

Karen I am aware your reports on Woodbridge are an integral part of your market strategy to be current on many facts throughout Prince William County. The obvious goal is to provide your clients with the very best possible representation and blog posting is an excellent method and may include posts about other interesting locations in our area
