Town officials are talking about expanding town boundaries. While it's something that was first introduced nearly four-years ago, officials are just getting the ball rolling on the project. A Virginia Tech group, which recently helped Fincastle with its boundary adjustment, has been contacted and is expected to start working on a proposal after the first of the year.
