The Loudoun County BOS is leapfrogging from the Metro vote to the Courthouse Grounds Holiday Display vote tomorrow! The following recommendation passed the Board’s Finance and Government Services and Operations Committee 3-1 in June:
“A board-appointed Loudoun County Courthouse Grounds and Facilities Committee, which has been studying the issue, is recommending the government-sponsored seasonal display consist of a “live evergreen tree that would be 10 feet to 14 feet in height and adorned with traditional non-blinking colored lights (with four bulbs per square foot), ornaments that would consist of multi-colored balls and a lighted star at the top.”
The display would also include a crèche, a menorah and a Santa display featuring a sleigh and reindeer approximately 15 feet in length.
Additionally, “wreaths and garlands of greenery be hung on the fence of the courthouse lawn, and that the tree be placed in the traditional spot on the sidewalk in front of the Courthouse and that placement of the other display items would be on the lawn beside the tree,” the committee’s recommendation states.”
Will the “Church of the Spaghetti Monster” followers show up for the vote?
