Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

28.

CONSTRUCTION ESCROW FUNDS FOR TRAILS AND SIDEWALKS (Tapes 2-3)

Chairman Hanley informed the Board of an issue raised by Jim Hart, Chairman of the Countywide Non-Motorized (Trails) Transportation Committee, concerning how construction escrows for trails and sidewalks are determined and how those escrows compare with the actual cost of construction. There are 638 escrows total; 163 are for trails and sidewalks as of May 25, 1998. The first two cases that the Committee examined provide the following examples: the Green Trails Bridge in Sully District has an escrow fund of $19,500 and the estimate for construction is $98,000. The Kaiser ICF Trail in the Providence District has an escrow fund of $12,600 and an estimated construction cost of about $75,000. A third escrow, in Mount Vernon, is for $50. The amount escrowed is not adequate for the actual cost of the facility.

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to:

  • Examine the County’s methodology for establishing the amounts to be escrowed for trails and report its findings.

  • Review the possibility of establishing a larger trail fund or funds that could be used to build trail projects on the Comprehensive Plan, rather than having almost 200 smaller accounts that must be held for a small specific section of trail.

Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Dix moved to amend the motion to express the intent of the Board that funds derived for projects in a respective supervisor district be utilized for projects that are either in or that benefit the supervisor district for which the funds are derived. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

Following further discussion, the question was called on the amendment to the motion, which FAILED by a recorded vote of six, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn voting "AYE."

The question was then called on the main motion, which CARRIED by a recorded vote of nine, Supervisor Dix voting "NAY."

FAIRFAX AREA DISABILITY SERVICES BOARD REQUEST TO HOLD A PUBLIC FORUM (Tape 3)

Supervisor Gross asked to amend the request to hold the forum in a place that is more accessible to disabled persons, and this was accepted.

 

 

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked to amend the request to direct staff to attempt to coordinate the forum with Board Members’ schedules to allow maximum participation, and this was accepted.

Chairman Hanley informed Board Members of two upcoming events that are currently being coordinated, one is the community meetings on Y2K and the other one is the meetings on the 20/20 plan from TCC.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

30.

CLASS ONE VEHICLE INSURANCE IN FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley stated that it has been called to her attention that there is a critical omission in the provisions that govern two Class One Vehicles in Fairfax County. These two vehicles are the only two that are assigned for personal use without restriction in the County’s fleet. However, because the County is self-insured, the Department of Finance’s Risk Management Division acts as the County’s insurance agent in administering the County’s insurance fund. Personal loss claims from these two vehicles are filed directly with Risk Management. She asserted that this needs to be corrected.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board require that there be separate insurance policies held by a third party insurer outside of the self-insurance fund for Class One Vehicles. This will eliminate the claim for loss of personal items being made to the self-insurance fund. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

31.

SCHEDULING OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 94-H-065, REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1999-HM-011, AND FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN APPLICATION FDP 1999-HM-011 (Tape 3)

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing on Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 94-H-065, Rezoning Application RZ 1999-HM-011, and Final Development Plan Application FDP 1999-HM-011 for August 2, 1999 at 5:30 p.m. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

32.

PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX TO PROHIBIT PARKING IN ALL DESIGNATED BUS STOPS (Tape 3)

Supervisor Dix called the Board's attention to a number of complaints he received from citizens about motor vehicles parking either in areas designated as bus stops or in close proximity to those stops to prohibit busses from pulling into them. This creates an unsafe condition, particularly since the bus must stop in a travel lane and citizens must walk into the street between cars to get on and off the bus.

Supervisor Dix stated his understanding that the Police Department is not ticketing vehicles that park in the bus stop areas used by the Connector and the Reston Internal Bus System (RIBS) busses because the Code of the County of Fairfax does not actually prohibit such parking. More specifically, Section 82-5-39 of the County Code prohibits parking in bus stops designated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), but the County Code has no provision addressing the parking of motor vehicles in bus stops used by the Connector and RIBS busses. The language in the Code dates back to a time when WMATA was the only provider of bus service in the County. Further, the problem will only be compounded in the near future with the implementation of the Dulles Corridor Express Service that will add even more bus stops to neighborhood and major commuter routes in Reston and the surrounding area.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to review this situation and to prepare appropriate amendments to the Code of the County of Fairfax to prohibit parking in all County designated bus stops. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

33.

CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF SITE PLAN FOR WESTERRA PROJECT (Tape 3)

Supervisor Dix informed the Board that Westerra Reston, L.L.C. recently obtained approval from the Board for Rezoning Application RZ 98-HM-063/Final Development Plan Application 98-HM-063 for office development at Monroe Street and Sunrise Valley Drive. Westerra is proceeding with the Site Plan and necessary subdivision to begin construction at this site, which will include the widening of Monroe Street to six lanes to complete an important missing transportation link in the area.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board authorize the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to accept the Subdivision Plat and the Site Plan for this Westerra project for concurrent processing. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

34.

DOG PARK IN RESTON (Tape 3)

Supervisor Dix stated that he was contacted recently by a group of citizens who have formed in the Reston area and are interested in establishing a dog park in Reston. Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to work with his office and the Reston Association to determine whether there is an appropriate location in the greater Reston community that might serve as a dog park. Without objection, it was so ordered.

There was a brief discussion on this issue.

35.

REQUEST FOR UPDATE ON AFFORDABLE DWELLING UNIT (ADU) OPTION (Tape 3)

Supervisor Dix reminded the Board that several months ago he offered an option that might be considered regarding ADUs. This option was to allow an applicant to make a contribution that could be used for down payment funds, as opposed to the construction of ADU units in communities where there might be a non-compatible unit type. Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide an update on this issue including whether it has been scheduled for any kind of review by committee. Without objection, it was so ordered.

36.

GIRLS' BASKETBALL TEAM (Tape 3)

Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the members of the Fairfax County Stars 11-year-old girls' AAU basketball team and their coaches to appear before the Board in recognition of their being the runner-up in the national championship held in Louisiana. Without objection, it was so ordered.

37.

VAN DORN STREET INTERCHANGE (Tape 4)

Supervisor Kauffman referred to the issue he raised on April 26, 1999, regarding the Van Dorn Street interchange and how it ties into the Mixing Bowl and the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project. He distributed to Board Members a letter from the Virginia Department of Transportation regarding the issue. He said that the letter indicates that this interchange is identified as a lower priority for improvement based on traffic volumes and incident statistics.

Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to review this issue and report with options the Board could take to expedite this project either in phases or the entire interchange. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

38.

PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX, CHAPTER 112 (ZONING ORDINANCE) REGARDING PLACES OF WORSHIP (Tape 4)

Supervisor Bulova said that on July 15, 1999, the Planning Commission is scheduled to hold a public hearing to consider an amendment to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 112 (Zoning Ordinance), that would allow the establishment of churches ("churches" should be understood to mean all "Places of Worship" - Synagogues, Mosques, Temples, Churches) "by-right" in some residential districts under certain conditions. It has been suggested that this amendment would help a very small number of churches to build with less difficulty. Under this proposal there would be no public hearing. What it would not do is reduce, waive, modify, or expedite the building development process.

Supervisor Bulova expressed concern that what has been advertised eliminates healthy community dialog and leaves the real issue unaddressed. She said that in her discussions with the Braddock faith community and from experience over the years with churches trying to build in Braddock District, it is her sense that it is the process that is the underlying problem, not the public hearing. Under the current process, the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) has legislative authority to approve Group 3 Special Permits. The BZA, however, has very limited authority to modify the development process (approve waivers, allow concurrent review, interact with the Virginia Department of Transportation, etcetera. Additionally, members of the BZA are appointed by the Circuit Court (not elected) and do not represent individual districts. The public process of community meetings and land use task forces that provides a forum for ironing out differences and concerns is generally not part of the picture, unless a Supervisor or Planning Commissioner intervenes. Even then, the final decision is made by the BZA.

Supervisor Bulova noted that as Supervisor Dix stated in his February 22, 1999, Board Matter, Group 3 Institutional Use applications such as churches can have significant issues associated with them and might be better served if they were processed as special exceptions through the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors instead of the BZA. Staff has reviewed how this proposal would impact the workload and it was determined that it would not increase significantly.

Supervisor Bulova stated that she would like the public and the Board to consider an alternative to what has already been advertised that would include the following components:

  • To ensure that churches (as well as other community organizations) have a clear understanding of the process and what is going to be required of them, a pre-submission meeting would be required as part of the process.

  • To better facilitate community dialog and to provide flexibility for both the community and churches, church applications are processed as special exceptions through the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors rather than as Special Permit uses through the BZA. This would ensure that the faith communities' concerns were better addressed throughout the entire process, from development plat to occupancy permit.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to:

  • Prepare an amendment to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 112 (Zoning Ordinance), that would convert church uses to special exceptions. This amendment should come back to the Board on July 26, 1999, for authorization to advertise a public hearing in early fall.

  • Propose language for a Board Policy that would require a pre-submission meeting as a first step in the application process. In addition to representatives from the church and Zoning Evaluation, staff from the Department of Transportation, Building Plan Review and Site Development, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, would also be required to participate as well as other staff as needed such as Fire Marshal, System Engineering, etcetera.

  • Report with draft language for this Policy along with the advertisement above on July 26, 1999.

  • Seek other ways to streamline the entire process, especially for places of worship, homeowner associations and small community organizations that may be unfamiliar with the development process and have little technical and legal assistance.

Supervisor Frey seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Jane W. Gwinn, Zoning Administrator, and James P. Zook, Director, Department of Planning and Zoning, the question was called on the motion and it CARRIED by a recorded vote of seven, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, and Supervisor McConnell voting "NAY."

The civic association is interested in pursing implementation of a ban on thru-trucks on the aforementioned streets.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to prepare an item for the Board meeting scheduled for August 2, 1999, authorizing a public hearing on this issue to be held this September.

45.

TRANSPORTATION OF VARIOUS FORMS OF TRASH AND GARBAGE THROUGH FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 4)

Jointly with Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Gross said that over the past 14 months a disturbing trend has been developing in portions of Fairfax County that adversely affects the health, safety, and well being of persons living and working within the County. The problem focuses directly on the transportation of various forms of trash and garbage through Fairfax County. Presently, there are several companies, headquartered out of State, which are picking up trash from the New York and the New Jersey area. These companies use tractor-trailers to transport the refuse down the east coast to landfills further south. Due to driver residences, and restrictions on the hours of driving for commercial vehicle operators, these trucks are being parked for one to three days in commercial and industrial areas within Fairfax County. While parked, on State maintained streets, these vehicles are routinely serviced, including oil changes and lubrication. The refuse, when transported on a flatbed trailer, is commonly covered with plastic webbing, or plastic wrapping. When transported in box trailers, the tops are open and the trash, while loosely covered, blows about. There are holes in both materials, which attracts and allows birds and rodents easy access to the bundles of trash. The trash bakes in the sun and begins to putrefy, causing liquid to flow onto the streets and into the soil or sewer systems. This process also creates a stench that has forced County warehouses and offices located nearby to send employees home.

When the problem first started, "No Parking" signs were posted by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). These signs were posted because the street conformed to the warrants normally used to restrict parking due to width and sight distance on the road. The posting of the streets for parking restrictions merely moved the problem to another area. Now the vehicles are parking on the street in commercial zones. VDOT has posted one street with "No Parking" signs to keep sight distance and driveways clear, but there is still ample space to park over 20 of these trucks.

VDOT states that it can only post "No Parking" signs for safety reasons and that the County would have to post the rest of the area. Because the street is used by employees of several commercial businesses during the day, there must be some parking on the street between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Health Department has been to the site numerous times and issued Notice of Violations to the companies owning the vehicles; however, these companies ignore the citations, primarily because they are located outside of the County. The Police Department has taken the position that, since the vehicles are legally parked, they can take no enforcement action.

Research into the problem has shown that these vehicles are in violation of Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 46 (Health or Safety Menaces), Chapter 82 (Motor Vehicles and Traffic), and Chapter 109 (Solid Waste). Chapter 109 directly gives the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES), the Health Department, and the Police Department jurisdiction to enforce the leaching of liquid from the trash onto streets and soil. The problem is, the Police do not know this, as they do not routinely enforce these Codes and the Health Department can merely cite the company. Clearly, there must be coordination between the various agencies.

The most expeditious manner to deal with the immediate problem is to post "No Parking" signs 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. on the streets currently affected. She noted that this is out of the normal policy, which is merely a policy, when posting "No Parking" signs. However, this is the only immediate remedy.

The permanent solution is a review and rewriting of Chapters 46, 82 and 109, so that they are cross-referenced and some ambiguities are clarified.

To protect citizens and workers in the affected areas from becoming ill, to deter the increasing rat problem which has been created by those vehicles, and to keep this

problem from moving to other areas of the County, Supervisor Gross and Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct the County Executive to:

  • Direct the Department of Transportation to immediately commence the process to install the hour specific parking restrictions on Industrial Drive, Industrial Road, Electronic Drive, General Washington, General Greenway, Stephenson Way and adjacent streets, where needed. The Traffic Division of the Police Department can direct the actual placement.

  • Have representatives of the following departments: Health, Police, DPW&ES and Environmental Services, Transportation, Planning and Zoning and the County Attorney, meet as soon as possible to develop language changes that will permanently remedy this situation.

Supervisor Gross added that staff from her office and Supervisor McConnell's office are familiar with the problem with the Code of the County of Fairfax and are available to assist in this review.

Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., County Executive, and David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, Supervisor Kauffman asked to amend the motion to include a review of the issue of "overnight parking," and this was accepted.

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

Supervisor Connolly stated that Special Exception Application SE 98-P-064, the Craven's Nursery case in the name of Clifton Paul Craven and Nancy Craven, was scheduled for a public hearing before the Board on July 26, 1999. The Planning Commission deferred its recommendation on this application until July 29, 1999.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board defer the public hearing on Special Exception Application SE 98-P-064 until September 13, 1999, at 4 p.m. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

49.

MITRETEK SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly stated that Mitretek Systems, Incorporated currently leases and occupies office space on Colshire Drive in McLean. Mitretek desires to maintain its presence in the County and has purchased a site in Fairview Park on which to locate and build its new headquarters. He said that Mitretek has a final development plan amendment (FDPA) pending with the Planning Commission to reconfigure the permitted development from two office buildings to one. The application includes a childcare center in the office building and clarifies the restriction on hours of operation in the development conditions.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Management to concurrently process the site plans and related engineering documents for the Mitretek Systems, Incorporated FDPA Application 78-P-130-06. He noted that this action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

50.

BUREAU OF THE CENSUS SEEKING APPLICANTS FOR POSITIONS IN NEW FAIRFAX OFFICES FOR CENSUS 2000 (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly reminded the Board that on his motion on March 22, 1999, it directed the County Executive to work with the Bureau of the Census Complete Count Committee for Census 2000 in an effort to achieve an accurate population count in the County. He announced that the Bureau is about to open nine offices in Virginia, including one in Fairfax and one in Manassas. The Bureau is currently recruiting managers and automation technicians for each office and has asked the County to assist in publicizing these positions. Interested applicants who have either managerial or information technology experience should contact the Bureau's regional recruiters, Mr. Bob Gabbard or Mr. John Davis, at 703-344-6385 as soon as possible for test scheduling, application instructions, and information.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to publicize this information. Without objection, it was so ordered.

The group was charged with examining transportation conditions in Oakton and making recommendations for improvements. The group met regularly for the past six months and, with the support from both the County Department of Transportation and the Virginia Department of Transportation staff, developed a comprehensive set of recommendations to improve traffic flow and quality of life in Oakton. He distributed copies of the final report to the Board and noted that the information will be posted on his website. No action has been taken yet.

There was a brief discussion concerning this matter.

52.

HORI-OM APPLICATION TO BUILD A HOTEL IN CENTREVILLE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Frey stated that a company called Hori-Om has filed Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 87-S-053-4 and Special Exception Application SE 97-Y-067 to build a hotel on a piece of property adjacent to the building where his district office is located. This application was part of a trio of applications that involved the McDonald's and the property that the Department of Housing and Community Development is developing. A contract issue arose, which led to the separation of this application. The applicants have resolved the issue and are now prepared to proceed with the public hearings.

Supervisor Frey noted that the applications have been reviewed by staff and have received a favorable recommendation from the Planning Commission. Because of the time lapse since the public hearing, the application must be heard again by the Planning Commission. He said that the applicant has assured him that there are no changes to the plan.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff from the Department of Planning and Zoning to schedule the public hearings for filed Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 87-S-053-4 and Special Exception Application SE 97-Y-067 to occur prior to November 1999. The applicant understands that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

53.

DULLES INDOOR SPORTS COMPLEX, LLC (Tape 5)

Supervisor Frey stated that the Dulles Indoor Sports Complex, LLC has filed a proffered condition amendment application and a special permit application for property located on the northwest corner of the intersection of Centreville Road and Barnsfield Road. In an effort to make the indoor courts available for the fall 2000 season, the applicant has requested concurrent processing of the site plans while the zoning applications are undergoing review.

Supervisor Frey stated that the applicants understand that the following motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct the staff of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to process the proffered condition amendment and special permit applications concurrently with the associated site plans. Supervisor Dix seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

54.

CLIFTON PINES (Tape 5)

Supervisor Frey stated that Clifton Pines is a ten-lot subdivision located on Old Clifton Road. The property was rezoned in 1992 from R-1 to R-3 and the General Development Plan showed construction of nine homes and the preservation of an existing dwelling on the tenth lot. Through a miscommunication during the subdivision plan review process, the older home was demolished. The applicants are now proposing to construct a new house on the tenth lot and must pursue a proffered condition amendment application.

Because of the narrow scope of the application, Supervisor Frey stated that the applicant has requested that the public hearing be scheduled prior to the November moratorium on land use applications. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct the:

  • Department and Planning and Zoning staff to schedule a public hearing for this application prior to November.

  • Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to accept the associated site and subdivision plans for concurrent review.

Supervisor Frey noted that the applicants understand that approval of this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

55.

OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT TO CONSIDER PROFFERS FOR TRANSPORTATION, EDUCATION, AND RECREATION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Frey said that the Board had a rezoning application scheduled for public hearing in the afternoon that was deferred because the proffers had been amended. The applicant proposed contributions to the Affordable Housing Trust Fund, but there were no contributions proffered for transportation or recreation. He asserted that the priority in western Fairfax is to solve transportation problems and provide recreational amenities, particularly ball fields. The Comprehensive Plan mandates that any zoning case to be considered at the high end of density must include a contribution to the Affordable Housing Trust Fund, but there is no such language concerning transportation solutions, contributions for schools, or contributions toward recreational amenities.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to consider this issue and begin preparation of an out-of-turn plan amendment to consider language that would put transportation, education, and recreation issues on an equal basis in the Comprehensive Plan with the affordable housing solutions. Supervisor Dix seconded the motion.

Following a brief discussion, the question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

RETIREMENT OF ROBERT E. KOHNKE FROM THE NORTHERN VIRGINIA SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT (Tape 5)

Jointly with Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Kohnke to appear before the Board prior to the August 2, 1999, recess to receive the resolution as outlined in his written Board Matter on the subject. Without objection, it was so ordered.

57.

STAFFING AT THE MOUNT VERNON CENTER FOR COMMUNITY MENTAL HEALTH (Tape 5)

With reference to a letter he had received from a mental health therapist, Supervisor Hyland stated that there is a concern about the staffing capacity at the Mount Vernon Center for Community Mental Health to deliver services to children on the Route One Corridor, described as a "high need" area with a diverse population. The letter writer believes that the County is not filling empty positions promptly and is removing clinical staff from direct services (treatment work) to other duties.

Supervisor Hyland stated that he was told that a waiting list exists for intake alone for children until September, after which there is a long wait for treatment. Further, the writer indicates that there are not psychologists or even psychology interns available to test these children. According to a local referral service, there are only three psychologists in private practice in Fairfax/Alexandria who will provide psychological testing for Medicaid recipients. Just as the School Board has determined that schools in the Richmond Highway area deserve additional resources, this mental health therapist believes that the area is in need of supplemental mental health services.

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this matter to staff for a response to the assumptions made in the letter and recommendations. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor McConnell noted that the school she operates has clinical psychologists on its staff and she asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Attorney to determine whether there was a way for these people to be approached outside of her purview because there is such a need. She indicated that she would like her chief psychologist to discuss the issue with the mental health center staff. Without objection, it was so ordered.

58.

PAYMENT OF COUNTY TAXES VIA CREDIT CARD EVOKES PUBLIC COMMENT (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland stated that recently he has been receiving calls from residents who, upon receiving and reviewing their real estate tax bills, observed that paying by credit card would result in a surcharge of four percent of the tax bill. This fee, imposed by the credit card company, on a $1,250 semi-annual tax bill amounts to $50.

Supervisor Hyland asserted that the complaints are valid. Individuals who call are upset with the substantial increase over last year=s $5 charge, the fact that a flat fee is not used, and finally, the fact that while the percentage fee is shown in a box on the front of the bill, there is no explanation as to why the charge has increased (in the cited case) from $5 to $50, a tenfold increase. Although there is no difference in processing methods, the individual who incurs a higher tax has a higher fee imposed on him or her than one who is paying a lesser amount.

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to refer this matter to staff so that a better way may be found to permit tax-paying citizens to make their payments via credit card without a forced, discriminatory fee charged for exactly the same services performed. At a minimum, he asked that a letter of explanation for the new four percent charge be included with all tax bills being sent.

Following a brief discussion, with input from Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., County Executive, without objection, the request was so ordered.

59.

OZONE (Tape 5)

With reference to his written Board Matter on ozone, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the Chairman to write a letter to the Commonwealth of Virginia Secretary of Transportation to develop language to be used on the State's variable message sign in relation to the new educational project ENDZONE to:

  • Highlight the code red and orange days.

  • Encourage the public to use public transportation.

  • Identify what exits to take to reach the Virginia Railway Express, the regional subway stations, and buses.

  • Highlight the discounts being offered for public transportation.

Supervisor Dix seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Mr. Frank W. Stearns reaffirmed the validity of the affidavit for the record.

Mr. Stearns had filed the necessary notices showing that at least 25 adjacent and/or interested parties had been notified of the date and hour of this public hearing and he proceeded to present his case.

Following the public hearing, Supervisor Connolly moved to waive the reading of the staff and Planning Commission recommendations. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Supervisor Connolly moved:

  • Amendment of the Zoning Ordinance as it applies to the property which is the subject of Rezoning Application RZ 1998-PR-023 from the R-1 District to the PDH-4 District, subject to the execution of the proffers dated June 16, 1999.

  • Modification of the trail requirement to permit an 8 foot wide asphalt trail to be constructed in the general location of the existing 4 foot wide trail along Idylwood Road.

Supervisor Connolly clarified for the record one aspect to proffer number 16, Traffic Control Measures. The intent is to provide limited access along Tire Swing Road between the adjacent neighborhood, Shreve Hill, and the proposed new development. The developer should install this gate as soon as possible after constructing the street connection. However, the developer should also provide temporary traffic control measures prior to the gates' installation, which is sufficient to discourage general vehicular traffic between the two neighborhoods.

Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor McConnell, and Chairman Hanley voting "AYE," Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.
