Greene Sheriff Refuses to Write Tickets

Greene County Sheriff William Morris is totally unwilling to ticket vehicles for failing to display a county sticker. This in the face of the Virginia Attorney General‘s office saying that he is required by law to do so. Says Morris, “I am not going to be a tax collector for Greene County.” His problem is this: county citizens cannot get the $25 county sticker until they’ve paid their personal property taxes. So Morris believes that he and his deputies have been turned into tax collectors for the county, a role that he’s not willing to assume. Keri Schwab has the story in today’s Progress.
