8.                     FINAL FISCAL YEAR (FY) 2005 BUDGET ACTIONS  (10:10 a.m.)

 

(R)                   Supervisor Bulova, Chair, Board’s Budget Committee, stated that on April 26, 2004, the Board took the unprecedented action of provisionally adopting the real property tax rate because the General Assembly had not yet approved a budget.  As a result of the General Assembly's recent passage of a two-year budget for the Commonwealth, the Board will take final action to adopt the FY 2005 real property tax rate.  Action today completes the budget process for FY 2005.

 

Real Property Tax Rate

 

Supervisor Bulova said that having provided public notice and a public hearing in accordance with Virginia Code Section 58.1-3321 (B), and because it is necessary to set the real property tax rate higher than the lowered tax rate specified in Virginia Code Section 58.1-3321, she moved that the Board set the real property tax rate at $1.13 per $100 of assessed value. 

 

As a result of this action, the real property tax rate will be greater than the rate specified by Virginia Code Section 58.1-3321 (A), but the real property tax rate for calendar year 2004 will be reduced by $0.03 from the present rate of $1.16 per $100 of assessed value.

 

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor DuBois and Supervisor Frey being absent.

 


FY 2005 Tax Rate Resolution

 

Supervisor Bulova said that having established the real property tax rate at $1.13 per $100 of assessed value in accordance with Virginia Code Section 58.1-3321, she moved that the Board:

 

·      Adopt the FY 2005 Tax Rate Resolution Adopting Tax Rates for the County as distributed to the Board.

 

·      Direct the County Executive to prepare a budget for FY 2006 which will allow the Board to reduce the real estate tax rate further, if, as the Board emphasized in the budget guidelines, real estate tax assessments and other revenues increase significantly.  In enabling this reduction, the Board will consider all sources of increasing revenue, including State dollars, and will review for reduction the entire County budget.

 

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

 

Discussion ensued regarding education funding, additional real estate tax relief, middle school sports, budget guidelines, and the selection of a School Board Superintendent.

 

Supervisor Bulova clarified that inherent in the motion is an adjustment to the Budget Guidelines.

 

The question was called on the motion, as clarified, and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Smyth, and Chairman Connolly voting “AYE,” Supervisor DuBois and Supervisor Frey being absent.

 

Reston Incubator Project

 

Supervisor Bulova noted that during the FY 2005 Budget deliberations, the Board had agreed to consider funding the Reston Incubator Project during the FY 2004 Carryover Review, which would be advertised in August.  In the meantime, with the State’s adoption of the budget and some additional revenues available, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct the County Executive to provide $25,000 for the Reston Incubator Project beginning July 1, 2004 (FY 2005), with appropriate funding adjustments to be included in the FY 2004 Carryover Review.  Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion.

Jointly with Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board form a pilot program to explore the feasibility and efficacy of a Pedestrian Safety Board to study issues within the Lee and Mount Vernon Districts and report any findings to the Board for final presentation to the County’s Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).  Each Supervisor (Hyland and Kauffman) would appoint three individuals to this board and consultants from DOT and VDOT would be invited to the meetings for their technical expertise.  An additional member would be jointly appointed by the two Supervisors for a total of seven individuals.  The new board would be empowered to select its own chair from the members.  Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland, jointly with Supervisor Kauffman, moved that the Board direct staff to investigate this situation by making appropriate inquiries of the County’s Department of Transportation, the Virginia Department of Transportation, the National Council of State Garden Clubs, and other organizations that may be involved in designating portions of highways or providing markers to identify Blue Star Memorial Highways and consider moving the boundaries of the present designation to include all of Route One from the City of Alexandria to Prince William County.  Chairman Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor DuBois and Supervisor Frey being absent.

Supervisor Bulova distributed to Board Members an article from the May 2004 issue of the Virginia Town and City magazine regarding housing.  She said the article noted that in November 2003, Norfolk's Department of Planning and Community Development published A Pattern Book for Norfolk Neighborhoods.  The book was developed and printed in an effort to help Norfolk homeowners, builders, and communities as they repair, rebuild, and expand their houses and preserve their neighborhoods.  The book gives instructions on a broad variety of topics, such as remodeling a front door, adding a wing or other addition, garage construction, building a new house, or even building a whole new housing development.  Users of the book are able to easily find the appropriate patterns to help them design and build in ways consistent with the city's architecture and are compatible with the neighborhood's character.  The book also shows how to take a house without a lot of style and make it look more like a traditional Norfolk house.

 

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to forward this article to the:

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the organizers of the Clyde's Strawberry Festival to appear before the Board to be thanked and recognized for their hard work in organizing such a worthwhile event to benefit the construction of Nature House at the Walker Nature Education Center.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

Jointly with Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman said that the Army, the Virginia Department of Transportation, and the County are working together to construct the last segment of the Fairfax County Parkway that goes through the Fort Belvoir Engineer Proving Ground (EPG).  The alignment of the Parkway will result in a small portion of the EPG being located between the new roadway and the I-95 Industrial Area.  There is currently no Comprehensive Plan guidance that addresses the relationship between this portion of the EPG and the existing and planned industrial uses in this area.  It may be appropriate for any future use of this land to be considered in conjunction with the adjoining industrially-zoned land.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize an Out-of-Turn Plan amendment for the portion of the EPG located south of the Fairfax County Parkway alignment adjacent to the I-95 Corridor Industrial Area.  This proposed Plan amendment should consider the types of industrial uses and intensities that are appropriate for this area.  Issues of land consolidation and access should also be addressed.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor DuBois and Supervisor Frey being absent.

To accomplish this mission, the WRL maintains a seven day per week wildlife assistance hotline the public can call to report injured, sick, or orphaned animals or to seek advice regarding perceived "nuisance" wildlife problems.

 

Supervisor McConnell said that in 1999 WRL received 8,876 calls, whereas the number increased to 19,236 calls in 2003, of which 75 percent were from Fairfax County residents.  Each call answered and each animal cared for by the WRL is a savings for the citizens of the County, the Animal Shelter and Animal Control.

 

The cost to maintain the hotline, even with volunteers, has increased from $11,993 in 1999 to over $12,684 in 2003.  Unfortunately, WRL has experienced a decrease in its donations as it continues to provide this service.

 

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to explore the possibility of providing some level of yearly funding to the WRL so that it can continue this vital service.  Without objection, it was so ordered.
