Reversion is now a done deal

Reversion will become a reality for Martinsville and much sooner than had been expected. The Commission on Local Government announced Thursday morning that the parties have reached an agreement in principle and it should be approved by the two government bodies before the end of the month.

Henry County Attorney George Lyle said late Thursday that attorneys for both Henry County and Martinsville informed the commission earlier in the day that mediation produced general agreement on a number of issues and the two localities would like time to memorialize those agreements in a written document that could then be considered by the Commission.

Lyle said the details of the agreement have yet to be finalized, but they expect public consideration of some of the issues could occur by the end of the month.
