Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to invite the members of the Library Board, the Library Foundation, and representatives of the Macleod Trust to appear before the Board to be thanked and recognized for this impressive gift which leverages the County’s investment in its libraries through the generosity of Mr. Macleod and the innovative approach of the Library Board.  This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross and carried by unanimous vote.

70.       CABLE REFRANCHISING  (Tape 8)

 

Supervisor Bulova stated that she recently met with the Director of the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) regarding the schedule for the Cable Refranchising process.  She noted that in the May/June time frame, staff will issue a Request for Refranchising Proposal (RFRP), which will include expectations for future cable service.

 

Acknowledging that a public hearing is planned for later in the process, Supervisor Bulova expressed her belief that it would be useful to seek public opinion at this stage to determine constituents’ future needs, expectations, and demands.  She noted that focus groups, organized by the Federation of Citizens Associations and the District Councils, as well as the Parent Teachers Organizations (PTAs), could:

 

n         Learn where technology is headed and what can be expected from future cable service;

 

n         Learn what services are being offered or provided when franchising or refranchising is undertaken in other parts of the country; and

 

n         Envision the role they expect cable will play in their daily lives as technology advances.

 

Supervisor Bulova stated that following focus group discussion, a public hearing in late May or early June would be useful to determine the public’s needs and expectations that could be  incorporated into the RFRP and communicated to Media General Cable and other cable companies. 

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to consider this approach and report as to the feasibility of engaging community groups and organizing focus groups in time to allow public comment and remain on schedule with the refranchising process.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 


71.       DAY CARE SERVICES  (Tape 8)

 

Supervisor Bulova stated that it had been called to her attention that there are waiting lists for day care services at Oak View and Laurel Ridge Elementary Schools.  She said that the Board should consider offering before and after school day care at the David R. Pinn Community Center operated by the Department of Community and Recreation Services (DCRS) less than one-half mile away which would add affordable services for the school-age population in that community.  The DCRS offers a summer REC-PAC (playground) program in the facility.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the staff of the Office for Children (OFC) to work with the staff of the DCRS to:

 

n         Explore the feasibility of opening an affordable, self-sustaining before and after school day care program at the David R. Pinn Community Center beginning in September of 1997.  The day care services should maximize use of existing Community Center staff to operate the program;

 

n         Explore the option and affordability of DCRS’s offering such a program that meets state licensing standards and is self-sustaining if the staff of the OFC believes that it is unable to offer such a program; and

 

n         Report with recommendations no later than July 21,1997.

 

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the request to include the cost and the licensing requirement, and this was accepted.

 

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

 

Following a brief discussion, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked to amend the request to direct staff to:

 

n         Address the issue of transportation; and

 

n         Determine whether the County could license this day care to be operated by a private business within the Center;

 

and this was accepted.

 

Without objection, the request, as amended, was so ordered.

 


72.       PHOTO RED LIGHT ISSUE  (Tape 8)

 

Supervisor Bulova reminded the Board that as a result of legislation passed by the General Assembly several years ago, the County is a qualifying jurisdiction for photo red light ticketing.  She noted that several other jurisdictions are attempting to implement this program with the City of Fairfax planning to begin using “Photo Red Light” this summer.

 

Supervisor Bulova explained that she understood that a staff task force assembled to pursue implementation in the County was disbanded by the former County Executive because of legal issues.  Because she believed that such a program would be well received by citizens’ organizations, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to report to the Board with the reasons for disbanding the task force and not pursuing implementation of a pilot program.  This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Frey asked to amend the motion to refer the issues related to the enforcement of speed limits in school zones to the Board’s Legislative Committee, and this was accepted. 

 

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

 

73.       SHOWMOBILE  (Tape 8)

 

With reference to her written Board Matter regarding replacement of the County’s 31 year old Showmobile, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to examine the feasibility of securing a new Showmobile through corporate donations and address the following issues by offering a recommendation to the Board:

 

n         If corporate funds are sought, is the County willing to allow company advertisements on the new Showmobile, and is there any legal prohibition to this;

 

n         If the County were willing and able to allow company advertisements, how much title of the Showmobile is the County willing to relinquish; 

 

n         If the company advertisements were allowed, which companies would be the most acceptable for advertising on the Showmobile and how much advertising would be acceptable in terms of size and location of the logo and company name;

 

n         How much usage would the County be willing to grant the corporate sponsors in return for their contributions and would Board Members be willing to relinquish some of their use;

 


n         If corporate sponsors are sought to fund the Showmobile, which companies would the Board allow staff to seek; is there a formal bid process to line up companies for their participation, and if the bid process is required, are there any restrictions the Board can impose to preclude certain companies from participating because of the nature and exposure of the Showmobile to the general public; and

 

n         If the formal bidding process is not required, what about the issue of choosing one competitor over another, e.g. Coca Cola versus Pepsi.

 

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

 

74.       REQUEST TO RECORD VOTE  (Tape 8)

Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to coordinate efforts between the Department of Family Services and School Division staff to review similar cases when children are caught in the bureaucracy with no services. 

 


Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the request that the Board refer this issue to staff for clarification of the procedures regarding temporary guardianship, and this was accepted.  Without objection, it was so ordered.
