The Loudoun County Government Reform Commission recently trotted out its “to do” list, which is an odd mix of both the impossible and the immaterial.

On the one hand, it sets broad, lofty goals such as fundamentally changing the police and fire services, restructuring the roles of the County treasurer and commissioner of revenue and staggering the terms of supervisors.  On the other hand, though, it dives into minutia such as whether to change “the current treatment of bed and breakfasts” for planning and zoning purposes.

There are a few that are in the middle, like exploring alternative means of measuring the effectiveness of government programs and the consolidation of land acquisition duties and responsibilities.
All in all, I still think the commission’s efforts will yield virtually nothing of substance, and the agenda just proves my point.
