Therefore, Supervisor Bulova said that no action would be taken on the property tax rate until the next Board meeting scheduled for May 24, 2004.

 

                        A brief discussion ensued with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive.

24.                   LORDS AND LADIES FAIRFAX  (11:20 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly noted that each year the Board selects outstanding members of the community to be recognized as the Lords and Ladies of Fairfax.  These citizens go beyond the already superior standards set in Fairfax County to make memorable contributions to their fellow citizens and communities.

 

To acknowledge the individual Lords and Ladies of Fairfax, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the appropriate individuals to appear before the Board on June 7, 2004, to receive certificates of recognition for this outstanding achievement.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

25.                   US ARMY WEEK  (11:20 a.m.)

 

In conjunction with Celebrate Fairfax! activities, the United States Army Fife and Drum Corps will perform at the Board meeting on June 7, 2004.  Accordingly, Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board proclaim June 6-13, 2004, as “US Army Week” and direct staff to prepare a proclamation for presentation to recognize the members of the Corps.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

26.                   IMPACT OF STATE BUDGET ON MR WAIVERS  (11:20 a.m.)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, during discussion of the State budget, the Board mentioned the MR Graduate Program.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#23.)

 

Chairman Connolly reminded the Board that as part of a plan to restructure the MR Graduate program to ensure that as many individuals as possible can take advantage of the program even as funding demands grow, in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2005 Budget, the Board funded 17 of the most critical recent MR graduates.  Anticipating roughly $500,000 in funding from the State to cover the majority of the costs for the new graduates, the Board also established a scholarship fund of $500,000 to allow for some of the remaining 31 MR graduates to receive some level of funding.  He expressed his hope that the General Assembly would provide additional MR waiver slots which might increase the County’s ability to assist the 31 unfunded graduates, either directly or by using dollars now allocated to graduates to fund previous graduates awaiting Medicaid funding.

 

Now that the State has passed a budget for FY 2005, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to determine:

 

·      How many MR Waivers the County will receive in FY 2005 from the State’s FY 2005-2006 biennium budget.

 

·      Whether those waivers will provide for the 17 MR graduates budgeted in the Board’s FY 2005 Budget.

 

·      Whether there are any additional waivers, and, if so, provide the Board with options on how that funding might be used.

 

Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to convey information to the affected families indicating that the Board will deal with this issue in an expeditious manner to resolve the uncertainty, and this was accepted.

Chairman Connolly noted that most of the Board Members joined him for the twenty-sixth Annual Valor Awards on February 26, 2004.  The Valor Awards ceremony honors those men and women of Fairfax County public safety who made selfless sacrifice, sometimes placing themselves in grave danger, to safeguard the lives of others.  He reminded the Board that this year’s ceremony was hosted again by Bill Curtis of the A & E Network’s Award winning Investigative Reports, American Justice and the Cold Case Files.  At the ceremony, Mr. Curtis announced his intention to donate a complete video library of more than 20 episodes of Cold Case Files to the County.  Chairman Connolly indicated that it was his pleasure to accept the donation on behalf of the Criminal Justice Academy.

Chairman Connolly announced that last Friday, a number of Board Members attended a press conference for the announcement of the Affordable Housing Preservation Initiative.  This past Monday the Board’s Housing Committee, chaired by Supervisor Hudgins, recommended that the Board adopt the plan as its own.  A major tenet of this initiative is the Affordable Housing Preservation Forum, which will take place on Wednesday, June 2, 2004, at the Fairview Park Marriott, from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.  A private grant will finance it.  This forum will bring together the development community, large property owners, non-profit organizations, advocacy groups, state and local leadership, and others committed to preserving the County’s affordable housing stock to address this critical issue.

Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board proclaim June 19-26, 2004, as “Responsible Fatherhood Week” in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite the appropriate representatives from the Fairfax Fatherhood Collaborative, Opportunities, Alternatives, and Resources (“OAR”) and the Office of the Sheriff to receive the proclamation at the June 21, 2004, Board meeting.  Supervisor Kauffman and Supervisor McConnell jointly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

(P)                   Chairman Connolly stated that the Board has reviewed several policies recently, such as the Travel Policy, Vehicular Purchasing and Retention Policy, and asserted that the County needs to review an office furniture policy.  He said that it should always be the Policy of the County that the purchase of furniture is made only when absolutely necessary and, then, under strict guidelines to achieve the greatest savings possible.

 

Chairman Connolly expressed an interest in receiving the following information:

 

·      The criteria and process used to justify furniture purchases and the approval process.

 

·      When a furniture purchase is justified, the steps taken to ensure that it is purchased as economically as possible.

 

Accordingly, as part of the Board’s ongoing effort to identify budget-saving initiatives, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to conduct a review of the Policy governing the purchase of new office furniture by County employees.  Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

 

Chairman Connolly stated that he distributed copies of a memorandum he had received from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, on this subject.

On behalf of the Board, Chairman Connolly expressed appreciation to the County’s Information Technology (IT) staff for their tremendous work in keeping the County’s website both effective and leading edge, and he congratulated them for receiving this well-deserved award.  He asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite IT staff to appear before the Board for formal recognition at an appropriate time.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

33.                   COUNTY WINS CITY AND COUNTY PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT AWARD  (11:28 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly announced that the County recently won the Overall Performance Management Award during the City and County Performance Management Awards program, presented by The Performance Institute in San Diego.  The Performance Institute is a private, nonpartisan think tank dedicated to improving government through the principles of performance, competition, transparency, and accountability.  The Institute recognized Fairfax for its strategic planning and budgeting.  Among a few of the reasons for the recognition, the Institute stated that the County enables funding of priorities that directly support the County’s “Vision goals”; that the County clearly articulates funding decisions to its citizens; and that the County presents budget information in a user-friendly format, improving readability. 

 

On behalf of the Board, Chairman Connolly expressed appreciation to the County Executive and his staff and the County’s Budget staff for the outstanding, exemplary, and now award-winning, work that they do and congratulated them for earning this well-deserved recognition.  He asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the appropriate staff to appear before the Board at an appropriate time to be formally recognized.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor DuBois said that on September 29, 2003, the Board approved the proposal from the Great Falls Memorial Committee to create a monument on public property near the center of Great Falls to honor all those who have served the cause of Liberty throughout the County's history.  The Board further approved, in concept, the placement of this monument on the grounds of the Great Falls Community Library in accordance with the location agreed to by the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) and the Great Falls Memorial Committee.  The Board further directed staff to provide support to finalize the design and the site plan of the monument, and she provided copies of those plans to the Board.

 

Supervisor DuBois said that the architectural firm of Lukmire Partnership, Incorporated, the architect for the Great Falls Library, and Paciulli Simmons and Associates were requested to provide the design services for this project.  She expressed her appreciation to Ms. Katayoon Shaya and Mr. Luis Lopez at DPWES who have worked closely with her office and the Great Falls Memorial Committee to develop the design of this project and to coordinate the location, access, maintenance, and construction issues.  Once sufficient funds are provided by the Great Falls Memorial Committee, DPWES staff will assist with construction.  Zadmer Enterprises, Incorporated, the contractor for the construction of the library facility, will provide construction services.

 

Therefore, Supervisor DuBois moved approval of the final design described in Attachment 1, visual concept shown in Attachment 2, and approval of the text shown in Attachment 3, in accordance with previous direction from the Board and contained in her written Board Matter.  Chairman Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

41.                   RECOGNITION OF MS. ASHLEY RITZ FOR HEROIC ACTION (DRANESVILLE DISTRICT)  (11:41 a.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois said that on April 21, 2004, Fairfax County Department of Fire and Rescue staff responded to an explosion in a shed in the Pimmit Hills area of the Dranesville District.  Devon and Tyler Lutz, two four-year-old brothers born 10-months apart, were in the vicinity of the shed when the explosion occurred and received severe burns.

 

Supervisor DuBois said that Ashley Ritz, a 15-year-old neighbor who was walking home from the school bus when the accident happened, heard the explosion and the cry for help from the boy's mother.  Without hesitation and with total disregard for her own safety, she ran straight towards the black smoke and searched for one of the boys she could hear crying inside the dense smoke and fire.  By putting herself in harm’s way, she pulled him to safety and attempted to extinguish his burning clothes with her feet and bare hands, receiving burns herself.  Her actions and bravery prevented further injuries and saved his life.  The boys are undergoing treatment at Shiners Hospital in Boston and are still listed in critical condition.  

 

Supervisor DuBois said that the Aluminum Cans for Burned Children Program (ACBC) is assisting the family with lodging expenses while Devon and Tyler are undergoing treatment.  Local businesses, schools, and private citizens have assisted with the ACBC program by collecting aluminum cans.  They have collected more than 270 million cans since 1989 when the program began.  Participants can take their bags of cans to one of the many drop-off sites located at area fire stations.  Those who would like to participate in this very worthwhile program or would like more information can call 703-246-3801 or go online to www.acbcprogram.org.  Supervisor DuBois asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs and Channel 16 staff to publicize this program.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Therefore, Supervisor DuBois asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Ritz to appear before the Board on May 24, 2004, to be recognized for her heroic and courageous deed.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor DuBois announced that the Town of Herndon is hosting a receptionist for Mr. DeNoyer on May 19, 2004.  She moved approval of the resolution proclaiming May 19, 2004, "John DeNoyer Day" in Fairfax County.  This motion, the second to which was indistinguishable, carried by unanimous vote.

45.                   SHENANDOAH AND POTOMAC DRAFT TRIBUTARY STRATEGIES FOR PROTECTION OF THE CHESAPEAKE BAY  (11:46 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross noted that Board Members recently received a letter from the County Executive transmitting draft comments on the Shenandoah and Potomac Draft Tributary Strategies for protection of the Chesapeake Bay.  Staff submitted the comments in draft form since they were due to the State on May 5, 2004, and the turnaround time was too short for Board endorsement of them prior to submittal.  The Board should act as soon as possible to finalize the draft comments.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to prepare the draft comments for endorsement by the Board at its May 24, 2004, meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Smyth invited the public to the ribbon cutting ceremony and community celebration for the re-opening of the James Lee Community Center which will be held on May 22, 2004, at 1 p.m.  It will be a family event with entertainment, refreshments and tours of the newly expanded facility.

Supervisor Frey said that the Ox Hill Baptist Church located at 4101 Elmwood Street in Chantilly has applied for a rezoning and special exception to permit four phases of expansion over a 15 year period.  Phase I calls for the construction of additional parking and infrastructure to accommodate phases II, III, and IV to follow.  Since this additional parking will help meet the church's current demand for parking, as well allowing for future growth, the church hopes to complete the Phase I improvements before winter.  The Planning Commission public hearing is scheduled for September 22, 2004.  Consequently, the church has requested that the Board authorize concurrent processing, and schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board to occur immediately following the Planning Commission hearing.

 

The applicants understand that this motion does not relieve them of any obligation, ordinance or standards, and will not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way.
