46.THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY'S (EPA) NATIONAL LOW EMISSIONS VEHICLE PROGRAM (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix stated that recently the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed regulations to establish a national low emissions vehicle program. Under these regulations auto manufacturers can choose to voluntarily comply with the restricted tail pipe standards for cars and light duty trucks.

Supervisor Dix stated that the Ozone Transport Commission has made a recommendation to EPA that the thirteen member jurisdiction to the Ozone Transport area be required to have low emission vehicles at the front of their air quality attainment plans. He stated that the advent of a 49 state low emission vehicle will go a long ways toward reaching a compromised agreement that can help the area meet its goal in air quality attainment while not discriminating against certain geographical areas of the country. The County can achieve almost 90 percent of the reductions of the California cars through this process by using available gasoline that is in the market today.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board go on record in writing to the EPA Region Three Administrator supporting the National Low Emissions Vehicle Program as a means by which the County moves toward achieving its air quality goals to the Metropolitan Washington Region. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by unanimous vote.

47.BLUE PLAINS AGREEMENT (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix stated that as a follow-up to the last Board Meeting relative to the Blue Plains Agreement, the Board is on record in opposition to the current proposal to establish an authority under the District of Columbia (D.C.) Legislation that would be a ten member body, six members from the District and four from the suburban jurisdictions. The D.C. City Council will hear the second reading on the proposed legislation on December 5, 1995.

Supervisor Dix stated that is important for the Board to continue to give guidance to staff as common ground is sought on this matter. This is difficult because the District has the authority under law to proceed with this legislation. There are proposals that discuss concurrence requirements as they relate to certain matters.

Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board concur in a direction to:

Supervisor Dix stated that there does appear in the D.C. Legislation a discussion about a study that would look at privatization of both the operation and maintenance of a facility as well as perhaps the acquisition of the facility. Originally proposed as a one year study, there is an amendment to the legislation that now confines that time limit to six months. It is important for the County to continue to encourage discussions of privatization that meet the operations and maintenance of the facility.

Supervisor Dix amended his request to ask unanimous consent that the Board also direct the County Attorney to provide a legal ruling on what the County's obligation would be should this authority issue debt and whether or not there would be any impact on the full faith and credit of Fairfax County or its debt capacity or any of those kinds of issues.

Supervisor Dix pointed out that current legislation grants the District collective authority over collective bargaining rights and provides them the option of adopting authority benefits programs and gives them full authority over the Authority's budget. He noted that in the past, dollars have been taken from the reserve that have accrued in the enterprise fund for this operation including transfers to the general fund for other operations in the District of Columbia.

Following further discussion, the request, as amended, was so ordered.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, this issue was revisited. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#75.)

48.FISCAL YEAR (FY) 1997 FAIRFAX COUNTY BUDGET (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix stated his belief that most of the Board Members have received a briefing from staff related to the current status of revenue and expense projections and the corresponding deficit that is presently being forecast for the Fiscal Year ( FY) 1997 Fairfax County budget. That forecasted deficit which currently is being projected in the range of $125 to $150 million does not include the full amounts recently put forth by the school division regarding their FY 1997 funding request. These numbers will obviously present significant challenges to the Board as it seeks to reconfirm budget priorities while being faced with difficult choices.

In view of these challenges, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

Chairman Hanley asked to amend the motion to delete the words "public safety" in both bullets, and this was accepted.

Supervisor Alexander stated that there is an ongoing program of recruit schools for firefighters and police officers and it should be made clear that this motion will not impact the rookie and recruit schools for both firefighters and police officers, and this was accepted.

Following discussion, with input from William J. Leidinger, County Executive, the question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Dix further moved that in preparation for budget deliberations and Budget Subcommittee work sessions, that the Board direct staff to require that department heads and agency directors be prepared to make presentations on their respective budget requests which include performance based analysis of the work program and a categorization of activities in that work program which are mandated (and to what level of service) versus those activities which are not mandated. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Berger.

Following discussion, with input from William J. Leidinger, County Executive, the question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to advise, in writing, all presently funded contributory agencies that they will be required to submit a written request for funding in the FY 1997 budget which provides information which includes but is not limited to:

  1. A description of the organizations' present and past work program, including a performance based analysis of the impact and results attributed to that work program.
  2. The present local, state and federal tax status of the organization.
  3. The total annual funding which the agency receives and an itemization of the amount and source of that funding (including local, state, and federal, along with private sources, which includes foundations, corporations, etc.) .

Additionally, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to provide to the Board a complete history of funding from Fairfax County for any organization which submits a written request for funding as a contributory agency as a part of Fairfax County's FY 1997 budget. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Trapnell.

Following discussion, with input from Mr. Leidinger, Supervisor Dix amended the motion to modify the language in Number 1 to include a time frame of the previous years work program.

Following further discussion, Supervisor Bulova asked to amend the motion to add a Number Four to read as follows: "An evaluation of a contributories' adherence to the Board's adopted benchmarks," and this was accepted.

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

49.AUTHORIZATION FOR OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova noted that infill development is very difficult and must be handled in as sensitive a manner as possible. She said that sometimes fine tuning becomes necessary to provide assurances to adjacent neighbors that future development will not have too great an impact on their quality of life.

Supervisor Bulova pointed out that in Braddock District there are several parcels off Braddock Road near the State Police Headquarters. The potential development of these parcels is causing concern for the residents of the Briarwood Subdivision. To allay their concerns, Supervisor Bulova has agreed to add language to the Plan that better defines how development should occur and how access would be provided.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to work with her office to develop Plan language for parcels 69-1((1))29 through 40B. She added that the public hearing before the

Planning Commission should be held in March 1996 or sooner if possible and the public hearing before the Board should be scheduled as soon as possible after that. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

50.COMPUTERS FOR THE SENIOR CENTERS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that she talked with a constituent who attends the Wakefield Senior Center which is operated by the Department of Community and Recreation Services. He asked about the possibility of obtaining some computers to be used in a learning lab environment in the senior centers.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to work with the Department of Community and Recreation Services on the feasibility of placing retired computers that are 286's or better in learning labs at each community center and senior center for use by residents. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley.

Following discussion, Supervisor Hyland asked to amend the motion to direct staff to request the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce and local businesses to consider helping with this effort, and this was accepted.

Following discussion, with input from William J. Leidinger, County Executive, Supervisor Bulova amended the motion to direct staff to determine if there are computers that are not needed by the School System that may be used by the Senior Centers, and this was accepted.

Supervisor Dix pointed out that teen centers and disadvantaged areas in the County were trying to get access to technical equipment. He added that a strategy was needed to cross the various spectrums of age groups and how to address this issue.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

51.SURPLUS SCHOOL SITES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Berger stated that on January 23, 1995, the Board authorized a Subcommittee to consider the sale of surplus public school property in a way that would permit the Schools to retain the proceeds from the sale of surplus property for School improvements. Shortly thereafter, Delegate Vincent Callahan introduced legislation in the General Assembly to provide enabling authority for this procedure. That legislation was enacted by the General Assembly, and the Board Subcommittee, composed of Chairman Hanley and Supervisor Berger, has met with appropriate representatives of the School Board on this subject.

Supervisor Berger moved that the Board agree, as a matter of Policy, to dispose of surplus School property that is not needed for other County purposes in accordance with the 1995 amendments to the Code of Virginia Section 22.1-129. Specifically, he moved that the surplus property be disposed of in this manner:

Supervisor Berger further moved that the Board request the School Board to review its properties to determine if any may be considered as surplus under this new procedure. He said that it is his understanding that the Dead Run School Site may be surplus to the needs of the Schools.

Supervisor Berger moved that the Board request the School Board to begin the procedure with the Dead Run Site and such other sites as the School Board may deem appropriate. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Trapnell.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Dix and asked to amend the motion to delete the phrase "and such other sites," and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Vice-Chairman Dix returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

52.ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY (EPA) - REDUCTION OF AIR EMISSION FROM MUNICIPAL WASTE BURNERS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Berger said that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the environmental groups have reached a legal settlement regarding reducing air emission from

municipal waste burners. The new standards will allegedly improve upon EPA's 1991 version by requiring sources to control cadmium, lead, and mercury as well as dioxin and other air toxicities.

Supervisor Berger said that the Board needs to know if the County is one of the 130 municipal waste burners involved and if so, what equipment additions will be required and an approximation of the cost.

Therefore, Supervisor Berger moved that the Board direct staff to prepare an Information Item for the Board as expeditiously as possible. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

53.REQUESTS FOR FAIRFAX COUNTY SAFETY AND RESCUE SERVICES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Berger said that Fairfax County recently sent two emergency medical units, comprised of three people per unit and a supervisor, to the Million Man March in Washington, D.C. He noted that Fairfax County was not compensated for this.

Supervisor Berger moved that the Board direct the County Executive to consult with the Board whenever there is a request for County safety and rescue services to be present outside of the County unless it falls under The Mutual Aid Act. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix.

(NOTE: Supervisor Berger had to leave the Board Auditorium to respond to an important telephone call.)

Following discussion, with input from Glenn A. Gaines, Chief, Fire and Rescue Department, Supervisor Connolly moved to table this matter. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and CARRIED by a recorded vote of seven, Supervisor Dix voting "NAY," Supervisor Berger and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

54.EXTENSION OF REVIEW TIME FOR PUBLIC FACILITIES APPLICATION 456-D94-11 (Tape 6)

On behalf of Supervisor Berger, Supervisor Trapnell stated that on November 2, 1995 the Planning Commission deferred the decision on Public Facilities Application 456-D94-11 by the American Personal Communications to construct a telecommunications base station at 798 Dolley Madison Boulevard. To accommodate the additional review time required for this Application, Supervisor Trapnell moved that the Board extend the application review period for Public Facilities Application 456-D94-11 until June 30, 1996. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Berger and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

The original network relied on a small personal computer and

required over six hours to send each bulletin to the growing number of local participating businesses. This network called FASTFAX shortly resulted in the first arrest due to this information exchange and received national exposure from the media

Supervisor McConnell stated that Ms. Joan Doyle and Mr. Hal Crane of the Magnacom Communication Corporation contacted MPO Wackett and volunteered their services to fax broadcast all FASTFAX bulletins for all seven County Police Stations, the Criminal Investigations Bureau (CIB), and the police Public Information Office (PIO). Additionally, they agreed to supply all software, assist in the creation of databases, and provide all necessary training to operate this system, all without financial remuneration and solely as a gesture of commitment to support the Police Department.

Supervisor McConnell said that the FASTFAX network has grown from 100 to approximately 1000 participants Countywide, due largely to the support given by Magnacom.
