7.10:30 A.M. - BOARD MARKUP OF THE COUNTY

EXECUTIVE'S FISCAL YEAR (FY) 1994 ADVERTISED

BUDGET PLAN AND THE FY 1994 ADD-ON PACKAGE

(Tapes 1-2)

(Tape 1)

Fiscal Year (FY) 1994 Add-On Package:

Supervisor Davis moved approval of the revenue and administrative adjustments and the mandated and recommended consideration items included in the Fiscal Year (FY) 1994 Add-On Package resulting in a balance of $5,893,013. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by unanimous vote.

Establishment of FY 1994 Real Estate Tax Rate:

Supervisor Davis moved that the Board establish a Real Estate Tax Rate of $1.16 per $100 of assessed value. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by unanimous vote.

FY 1994 School Transfer:

Supervisor Davis moved that the balance of $5,893,013 be transferred to the Schools. This action will result in a total FY 1994 County transfer of $642.7 million. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland.

Supervisor Hanley stated that last week at the Board's Budget Subcommittee meeting, Board Members were informed of the balance, which exists because of a fraction higher than projected property tax revenue and reduced expenditures on the County's side through the year. She stated that this action recognizes that education is the highest priority of the Board of Supervisors and that this increased transfer exceeds the Board's two percent guideline.

Since the imposition by the School Board of adult user fees for fields and gyms did not generate the projected revenue and did generate a great deal of confusion, as well as deterioration in those programs, Supervisor Hanley asked that the motion be amended to include the request that the School Board rescind those fees and make the appropriate adjustments in the FY 1994 budget, and this was accepted.

Supervisor Hanley stated that there has been a great deal of discussion about ending balances in the School Board's budget. The School Board's revised proposed budget does reflect a $24 million beginning balance for FY 1994, but that balance is included as revenue to be used, not as a surplus fund. The School Board shows a zero ending balance for FY 1994. She stated that both the School Board and County budgets provide a process for carrying over unspent funds for line item projects until the next year to prevent the "use or lose" syndrome and to allow for rebids or readjustments to protect the taxpayers' interests.

However, in light of all of the confusion and the intent of the Board to see that the School Board budget is revised and its Third Quarter Review is funded, Supervisor Hanley asked that the motion be amended to include a request that, if any additional balances occur, the policy be continued of saving those balances rather than funding any new programs in the remaining FY 1993 or FY 1994 budget, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, and as amended, carried by unanimous vote.

Adjustments to County Budget:

Supervisor Davis moved that the Board approve the adjustments to the County budget reflected in Attachment One (contained in the informational package distributed to Board Members entitled, "Adjustments to County Budget") which reflects the reallocation of resources to address priority items. After this action, an available balance of $52,129 remains.

Athletic Field Fee Avoidance (Park Authority):

Supervisor Hanley stated that implicit in the items to be added is the $400,000 that would allow the Park Authority to increase their maintenance. She stated that this does not include the total number of capital Life Cycle costs; however, does include other costs, as well as the field maintenance costs. She asked that the motion be amended to include the same request to the Park Authority that was included to the School Board (under the title of "FY 1994 School Transfer" shown on Page Five of the Clerk's Board Summary), that the Park Authority not impose user fees for fields, and this was accepted.

Supervisor Hanley stated that the Park Authority's trust fund available balance is higher than last year and she asked that the motion be amended to request the Park Authority to find other places to fund those Life Cycle costs, and this was accepted.

Supervisor Alexander asked that the motion be amended to include a notation to the Park Authority that Life Cycle costs are not the kinds of items that are to be added into a fee, and this was accepted.

Summer Wood (Daviswood) Subdivision Storm Drainage

Project, McLean:

Merit Increments in FY 1994 and Cost-of-Living Adjustment:

Supervisor Berger briefly highlighted the Washington Personnel Association's annual salary survey, of which Fairfax County has been a participant for the past 13 years. He moved that the Board:

·Increase the Cost-of-Living Adjustments (COLA) from two percent to three percent;

·Eliminate the merit increases until the County can "come to grips" with its flawed merit system; and

·Freeze the pay systems that are "woefully" out-of-line with what the County's counterparts are being paid.

13.DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT'S (DEM)

TARGET RATE OF COST RECOVERY (Tape 2)

Supervisor Frey stated that on June 2, 1988, the Board adopted a 100 percent rate of cost recovery for the Department of Environmental Management (DEM). He said that DEM has been unable to meet this target rate of recovery for a number of reasons. First, the County's financial accounting system requires DEM to account for revenue in the year for which it is received. Since DEM's projects are multi-year, revenue is often not accounted for in the same year that costs are incurred. Consequently, recovering costs for a project does not translate to recovering costs in each fiscal year. In addition, at the Board's direction, fees are occasionally waived. Moreover, in some instances, the Commonwealth of Virginia has legislated caps on the fees that the County can charge in DEM, which limit DEM's ability to recover full costs. Finally, there are some activities performed by DEM that are not necessarily directly related to development in the County.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board adopt a target rate of cost recovery for DEM of 80 percent, effective July 1, 1993. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Alexander and carried by unanimous vote.
