33. MOSQUITO-BORNE DISEASE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross noted that as warm and wet spring weather approaches, concern about mosquitoes, and especially the diseases they might carry, increases. Health Department inspectors advise that the West Nile Virus has not been found in Northern Virginia. However, Fairfax County residents are anxious about the potential for mosquito-borne diseases as well as the general discomfort mosquito infestation can bring to neighborhoods.

In discussions with health inspectors, Supervisor Gross said that she has been advised that one of the biggest problems contributing to a mosquito problem is the ordinary back yard. Over 75 percent of the yards inspected have breeding problems, with standing water in 55 gallon drums, yard buckets, old tires, upturned garbage can lids, and even plant saucers. In some cases, old swimming pools and plastic baby pools are the culprit. Many times the homeowner is unaware that simple steps can be taken to rid an area of potential infestation.

Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to invite Dr. Judith Thompson, Principal of Garfield Elementary School; Pat Johnson, Garfield's reading teacher; and teaching staff, parents, and children to appear before the Board on May 22, 2000, to be recognized for their efforts. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

Recently the Land Use Committee approved their plans. Their willingness to work with the citizens over this period of time and their ability to work out countless details with staff, resulting in a change in recommendation from denial to approval prompted the committee to approve the application.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on May 8, 2000, on Rezoning Application RZ-1998-LE-074. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation of this application by the Board and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards in any way. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

Smith, Deputy Director/Deputy Building Official, DPWES, and all who worked on the seminar to kick-off the quest for development of a new system to process permits and conduct inspections.
