Supervisor Bulova called to the Board's attention a resolution passed by the Human Services Council requesting recommendations from the Deputy County Executive for Human Services on reorganizing the County's human services.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board:

·Direct the Deputy County Executive for Human Services, working with the Acting County Executive, to develop and present to the Board by August 1, 1992, a human services reorganization and process redesign plan. The human services reorganization and process redesign plan shall:

*Encompass all County human services that are addressed in the Fiscal Year (FY) 1993 program oriented budget for human services and housing;

*Address how the County works with private agencies to provide services;

*Structure the human services delivery system to be client centered, efficient, and effective; and

*Strive to achieve the County's human services goal.

The human services reorganization and process redesign plan shall propose savings of at least $2-4 million by FY 1995 with an objective of far larger long term savings. The plan shall project both any short term expenditures, like automation, that may be needed, as well as longer term expenditure reductions. There shall be opportunity for public comment and participation, and for consideration by the Human Services Council prior to presentation of a plan to the Board.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hanley.

Following a query from Supervisor Trapnell, Supervisor Bulova stated that contributory agencies are included under "private agencies."

The question was then called on the motion which carried by unanimous vote.

HERITAGE RESOURCES BRANCH TO PARK AUTHORITY

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to report with a plan for relocating:

·The County's archaeologists, Environmental and Heritage Resources Branch, from the Office of Comprehensive Planning (OCP) to the Park Authority; and

This motion was seconded by Chairman Davis and carried by unanimous vote.

(R)Chairman Davis relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman McConnell and moved that the Board adopt the following Resolution:

"WHEREAS, there is increasing concern in the Commonwealth of Virginia about the impact of automobile emissions on air quality; and

WHEREAS, Fairfax County has been identified as part of a 'non-attainment' area for air quality standards as designated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); and

22.ADDITIONAL ACTION ON THE PROPOSED COMMUNITY

DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT (CDBG) STATEMENT OF

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT OBJECTIVES AND

PROJECTED USE OF FUNDS FOR FISCAL YEAR

(FY) 1993 (PROGRAM YEAR 18) AND PROPOSED

REPROGRAMMING, IF ANY, OF PRIOR YEARS' CDBG

FUNDS (Tape 8)

[NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, action was taken on the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). See Clerk's Summary Item CL#18.]

Verdia L. Haywood, Deputy County Executive for Human Services, called to the Board's attention that the additional programs added by Supervisor Hyland ($18,903 for Fairfax Affordable Housing, Incorporated and $24,049 for Youth Services provided by United Community Ministries) are already included in the staff recommendation; therefore, they do not need to be added separately.

Chairman Davis relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman McConnell and asked unanimous consent that the Board reinstate the Huntington Sidewalk Extension for $50,000. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman McConnell returned the gavel to Chairman Davis.

Supervisor Hyland moved to reduce the amount for payment of Section 108 loans by $218,000, an amount equivalent to that for the projects added earlier in Chairman Davis' amendments to the staff recommendation on distribution of the County's CDBG entitlement. This motion was seconded by Chairman Davis and carried by unanimous vote.
