ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

27.OLDER AMERICANS MONTH (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley stated that the Commission on Aging has requested the Board to proclaim May 1997 as Older Americans Month. The Federal Government has selected the theme for this month as "Caregiving: Compassion in Action" with sub-topics such as Caregiving, Problems of Adult Abuse, and Crime Prevention.

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a Proclamation and invite appropriate representatives from the Commission on Aging and TRIAD, a crime prevention effort from the Sheriff's Department, to appear before the Board on May 12, 1997 to receive a Proclamation declaring May 1997 as Older Americans Month in Fairfax County. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by unanimous vote.

28.NATIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH WEEK (Tape 3)

With a notation that the theme for this year's Public Health Week is "Public Health: An Investment in Your Future," Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a Proclamation designating the week of April 7 through April 13, 1997 as Public Health Week in Fairfax County and invite members of the Health Care Advisory Board (HCAB) and the Department of Health to appear before the Board on April 7, 1997 to receive this Proclamation. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by unanimous vote.

29.PARTNERS IN PREVENTION - EFFORTS TO REDUCE TEEN PREGNANCY (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley noted that with the passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996, Congress designated $20 million as incentive to the five states which make the most progress in reducing out-of-wedlock births. She stated that it has come to her attention that the Virginia Department of Health will distribute, on a competitive basis, any monies earned by Virginia to the localities which join in partnership with the State in

this initiative. To inform the localities of this initiative, the Department of Health will conduct a series of regional forums around the Commonwealth with local officials and community leaders. The Northern Virginia forum is scheduled to be held on March 24, 1997 at Freddie Mac Foundation Headquarters at a time when the Board will be meeting.

Previously, Fairfax County addressed the problem of out-of-wedlock births through programs to reduce teen pregnancy. The Commonwealth initiative, called Partners in Prevention, appears to offer an opportunity for the County to expand its efforts to reduce teen pregnancy.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being out of the room.

30.REQUEST TO WAIVE RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE FEES (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to a Ronald McDonald House presently being constructed near Fairfax Hospital and noted that Fred Kober, President of the Christopher Companies, has asked that the building permit and sewer tap fees for this project be waived. The Ronald McDonald House is a charitable non-profit organization providing short-term housing for families of severely ill children next door to needed medical testing and hospital services. Ronald McDonald Houses are located at major hospitals around the country, and Fairfax County is very fortunate such a valuable resource will now be available to families in need at Fairfax Hospital.

Because this is a charitable endeavor, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to waive the building permit fee and sewer tap fee for the Ronald McDonald House of Northern Virginia. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix and carried by unanimous vote.

31.POSTING OF ALL NOMINATIONS FOR AMENDMENTS TO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN ON THE COUNTY WEB PAGE ON THE INTERNET (Tape 3)

Due to complaints from residents and community groups during the Annual Plan Review (APR) that they did not learn about a nomination affecting their neighborhood until it was too late, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to, in addition to all of the other publicity normally associated with the APR, post all nominations for amendments to the Comprehensive Plan on the County web page on the Internet for citizens to review. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix and carried by unanimous vote.

32.DEATH OF 14-YEAR OLD MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT IN TRAGIC GUN ACCIDENT (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley noted that, as everyone is aware, a 14-year old Marshall High School student died last week as a result of a tragic accident while playing with the loaded gun his parents kept in their house. This is the third accident in as many months involving children and firearms in the Washington area. Montgomery and Prince George Counties are considering measures which would require firearms kept in those Counties to be equipped with child safety devices to prevent accidental discharge.

Fairfax County does not have the authority to consider similar measures under Virginia State Law, which prohibits localities from adopting any ordinance to govern the purchase, possession, transfer, ownership, carrying or transporting of firearms which is not expressly authorized by Section 15.1-29.15 of the Code of Virginia. The Board went on record earlier this year supporting a bill introduced by Delegate George Lovelace which would have repealed this section of the Code. Unfortunately, that measure was defeated in committee.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board refer to the Legislative Committee the narrower issue of pursuing the legislative authority to adopt an Ordinance requiring Fairfax County residents who keep guns in their homes to equip them with child safety devices. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

Following discussion, Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to add, "to introduce a bill requiring gun dealers to equip every gun sold in the State of Virginia with a safety mechanism at the point of sale," and this was accepted.

Following further discussion, the question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by unanimous vote.

33.REVIEW OF CURRENT DEPRECIATION AND TAX RATE SCHEDULES FOR COMPUTER HARDWARE (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley noted that rapid developments in computer hardware technology throughout the 1990's have left localities in a quandary when it comes to valuing computers for property tax purposes, and the pace of change in the high-tech marketplace is increasing with the approach of the 21st century. Localities nationwide have conducted extensive studies of this issue, in cooperation and with the participation of their business communities, to try and find an equitable method of valuing and depreciating computer products for taxation purposes.

Fairfax County has adjusted its depreciation schedule for computer hardware a number of times in attempts to address this issue, with the benefit of some information provided by affected businesses. The time has come for a comprehensive study of the issue of Business Personal Property Tax as it is applied to computers in the County.

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct the Department of Tax Administration (DTA) to undertake a review of the current depreciation and rate schedules for computer hardware prior to tax year 1998. The review should be conducted with the participation and input of the business community at large since computers play a vital role in the operation of virtually every business in the County, not just the information technology companies.

In addition, the review should include an examination of the possibility of creating different subsets of equipment to determine whether large mainframe systems, for instance, should be treated differently for valuation and assessment purposes than desktop personal computers (PCs). In addition to examining the depreciation schedule, this effort should also consider the possibility of establishing different rate categories for different types of computer hardware. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by unanimous vote.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

34.WORLD CONGRESS ON INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY - GOVERNMENT CENTER RECEPTION (Tape 3)

Supervisor Connolly called the Board's attention to the 11th World Congress on Information Technology scheduled to be held at George Mason University (GMU) from June 21 through June 24, 1998. The program will include leaders from industries such as retail, manufacturing, education, financial services, health care, entertainment and government. These leaders will speak about trends and directions affecting their industries and information technology executives will be able to assist these leaders in reaching their goals.

Supervisor Connolly noted that an audience of more than 1200 information technology industry representatives and other senior level executives from more than 50 countries are expected to attend.

Since this event will showcase Fairfax County as a premier location for emerging information technology companies to locate their expanded or new business, this is an opportunity to showcase the Fairfax County Government Center to the participants of the World Congress on Information Technology.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Acting County Executive to work with the Economic Development Authority (EDA) to identify a reception event that can be held at the Government Center on June 21, 1998. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Mendelsohn and carried by unanimous vote.

35.RECENT VISIT OF HUNGARIAN DELEGATION (Tape 3)

Supervisor Connolly briefed the Board on a recent visit to Fairfax County by four individuals from Budapest, Hungary representing the Enterprise 2000 Foundation which was set up five years ago by the General Assembly of Budapest. The primary mission of this Foundation is to support entrepreneurial training programs at the secondary school level.

Mr. Tibor Kovari, Executive Secretary of the Foundation, requested an opportunity to meet with individuals in Fairfax County who have an interest in or are responsible for providing entrepreneurial or small business training and support. Specifically, the delegation was interested in learning how the County teaches entrepreneurship and promotes the growth and development of small business.

Based on the uniqueness of this event and the enthusiasm exhibited by those participating, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to send Certificates of Appreciation to the following individuals for providing presentations that gave information on the technical assistance, procurement, and financing services available to small businesses:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by unanimous vote.

36.DUNN LORING-MERRIFIELD METRO STATION (Tape 3)

Supervisor Connolly noted that the new Franconia-Springfield Metro Station will be opening later this year, at which time Metro will be modifying its system maps and station signs to include this new station. Metro has communicated to the Board that this is an opportune time to request any station name changes to allow for a cost-effective way to include these changes in the revised maps and signs.

Acknowledging the community and Board support for the change, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board request Metro to change the name of the Dunn Loring Metro Station to the "Dunn Loring-Merrifield Metro Station." This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by unanimous vote.

38.APPOINTMENT TO THE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY POLICY ADVISORY COMMITTEE (Tape 4)

(APPT)

Supervisor Mendelsohn moved the appointment of Dr. Edward H. Bersoff as the Dranesville District Representative to the Information Technology Policy Advisory Committee. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Connolly being out of the room.

39.ROBERT STEARNS, HERNDON RESIDENT, PULLS A WOMAN FROM A BURNING CAR (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendeloshn announced that on Monday, March 3, 1997, Robert Stearns, a resident of Herndon, displayed unmatched heroics by pulling a woman from a burning car on Centreville Road in Herndon. He noted that Mr. Stearns risked his own life to save the victim - an act of which each citizen of Fairfax County can be proud.

Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Stearns to appear before the Board on March 24, 1997 to be recognized for his heroism. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Connolly being out of the room.
