Structure of Government

Occoquan is chartered and incorporated as a town in the Commonwealth of Virginia and as such is subject to the authority of the Commonwealth. This relationship is governed by what is known as the Dillon Rule, which states that elected officials and governments in the Commonwealth’s counties, towns, and cities have only the authorities specifically granted to them by the General Assembly. As a consequence of this structure of authority and the relationship between states and the federal government, outside agencies provide a range of goods and services to town residents and many outside elected officials and public servants make decisions and manage services that affect town residents’ everyday lives.

Constituent Services

To navigate this complicated web of goods and services, elected representatives at all levels of government provide constituent services. Whether it is a question about a county real estate tax bill or benefits from the VA, there are staff ready to help you with your issue or refer you to the appropriate agency that handles it.

Below is an introduction to some of those actors at various levels of government and ways to contact them.
