March Channel 16 "County Magazine" Highlights Proposed $2.7 Billion FY05 County Budget and Profiles Acting Police Chief

The March cable Channel 16 television show, "County Magazine," reports on Fairfax County Executive Anthony Griffin's proposed fiscal year 2005 budget recommendations, which were presented to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors on Monday, Feb. 23.

"County Magazine" will also pay tribute to members of the county's Police Department, Fire and Rescue Department and Office of the Sheriff who were recognized with Valor Awards presented by the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Board of Supervisors. The awards honor law enforcement and emergency service personnel for actions beyond the call of duty.

Acting Police Chief Suzanne Devlin, the first woman to head the county's police force, will also be featured. Devlin oversees the day to day operation of the department while the county searches for a successor to Tom Manger, who retired and moved to Montgomery County to lead that police force.

In recognition of Women's History month, "County Magazine" will honor the heroic women who fought for the ratification of the nineteenth amendment so that all women would have the right to vote. The show will also get you ready for spring with a feature on a kayak class at the county's Riverbend Park as well as focus on the county's five off leash dog areas -- fenced, safe places where dogs can run, play and socialize with other dogs.

"County Magazine," with host Gail Eskew, can be viewed on cable Channel 16 each Monday at 7 p.m., Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and Sunday at 1:30 p.m. The program may also be viewed on the Internet at anytime during the month through Channel 16's video-on-demand service at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dtcs/channel16/vstream.htm.
