CHAPTER 90

An Act to provide for the termination of the Town of St. Charles in Lee County.

[S 589]

Approved April 5, 2022

 

Whereas, the Town of St. Charles in Lee County was created by the Circuit Court of Lee County on January 10, 1914; and

Whereas, the Town of St. Charles was never granted a charter by the General Assembly as current law requires; and

Whereas, the Town of St. Charles has ceased to function as a town under Virginia law; and

Whereas, there is no functioning town council for the Town of St. Charles to request the termination of the town; now, therefore,

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:

1. That the Town of St. Charles in Lee County is terminated and that the procedures and requirements for annulment of a town charter as set out in Chapter 37 (§ 15.2-3700 et seq.) of Title 15.2 of the Code of Virginia shall be deemed to have been satisfied for this purpose.

2. That upon termination of the Town of St. Charles, any terms of office and the rights, powers, duties, and compensation of any officers, agents, and employees of the town shall also be terminated, and that the title to all property, real and personal, tangible and intangible, of the former town shall be vested in, and the indebtedness becomes a debt of, Lee County without any further act or deed.
