Mr. Thacker said that a VDOT Resident Administrator and staff met with the representatives of the Zion Town Center regarding specific needs for Traffic Impact Analysis for their development.

Mr. Thacker provided the Board with a list of High Risk Sites in Louisa County that was created by VDOT’s District Traffic Engineering section that identifies the issues that are being addressed for eight different locations.

Clean Community Commission Annual Report – Robert Meier, Chairman

Bob Meier, Clean Community Commission Chairman, provided an update to the Board on the Clean Community Commission’s activities highlighting their accomplishments from this past year and what their goals are for the upcoming year such as community awareness events, spring and fall clean up campaigns, law enforcement programs, curriculum development through the schools, inmate program, and new recycling initiatives. Mr. Meier stressed the importance of filling the Litter Control position at the County and suggested that they consider making it a full time position. Mr. Meier stated that through the Adopt-a-Highway Program they now have 40% of the highways covered in Louisa County. He said that the roads that are available in the County are now posted on their website. Mr. Meier said that the Inmate Pick Up Program has been rather disappointing since there hasn’t been that many inmates that qualify. Mr. Meier stated that one of their primary focuses is to increase the recycling rate in the County to achieve a 25% recycling rate by 2010. Mr. Meier urged the Board to consider having a second Hazardous Waste Day in the County. Mr. Meier referred to the Solid Waste Management Recycling Plan that was created by the Clean Community Commission and highlighted the issues that the document addresses. In closing, Mr. Meier said that they would like to have a supplemental County Plan to submit to D. E. Q. along with the Joyce Engineering Plan.

The Board thanked Mr. Meier for his presentation and commented on the great job that the Clean Community Commission is doing. Mr. Gentry requested Mr. Meier to include the intersection of Route 700 (Mica Road) at Route 618 (Fredericks Hall Road) to their adopt-a-spot list for this area to be cleaned up. Dr. Morgan said that he would like the Board to consider adding the additional Hazardous Waste Day. Mr. Harper pointed out that he did not see any enhancements for the 2005 goals for the Inmate Program, which Mr. Meier said that they are currently working on this and he would send the information to the Board once it has been completed.

Local Emergency Planning Committee – Mike Schlemmer, Emergency Services Coordinator

Mike Schlemmer, Emergency Service Coordinator, informed the Board that he has included a resolution for their review to reactivate the Local Emergency Planning Committee. Mr. Schlemmer said that the original goal of the LEPC was to discuss and plan for emergencies involving hazardous materials in local communities, but is not a regulatory operation. He said that the only regulatory part is the receiving of plans and chemical information from facilities required under the SARA Title Three Act. Mr. Schlemmer explained that ever since September 11, 2001 the LEPC’s have seen their role expand from just SARA to being involved with planning in general to the recent requirements under the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. Mr. Schlemmer stated that due to all of the issues regarding emergency planning, he would like to recommend that the County expand the LEPC role to include an “all hazards planning approach” and assist in meeting the DMA of 2000. Mr. Schlemmer identified a list of people and organizations that he feels should serve on this committee. He said that once the Board has granted final approval, he would then send the information to the Virginia Emergency Response Council and schedule a meeting for March, which he would like to meet quarterly.

The Board discussed the recommendations at great length and determined that the list should be identified by categories rather than listing individual names to allow for future changes for any new provisions. The Board expressed the importance of identifying the voting districts and possibly having a core group of Ex-Officio’s identified to have manageability. The Board agreed to approve the resolution with the following three corrections; specify that the two Board of Supervisors members would be appointed by the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, remove the word recommend between the word to and members from the third “whereas”, and include another “whereas” to reflect that this was part of the DMA of 2000.

On motion of Dr. Morgan, seconded by Mr. Wright, which carried by a vote of 7-0, the following resolution was adopted:

A RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING APPOINTMENT OF LOCAL EMERGENCY PLANNING COMMITTEE (LEPC)

WHEREAS, the Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA) requires each state to establish state and local emergency planning committees to develop plans to respond to emergencies and to provide for the dissemination of appropriate information to the general public; and

WHEREAS, the Virginia Emergency Response Council has designated Louisa County as an emergency planning district and has requested Louisa County nominate members for appointment to the Louisa County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC); and

WHEREAS, the Board of Supervisors desires to update and expand its members on the LEPC to meet planning requirements for all hazards including: SARA, the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, Citizen Corps, and Homeland Security;

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Louisa County Board of Supervisors on this 7th day of February 2005, that the Louisa County Board of Supervisors does hereby approve the list of categories for nominations and will grant final approval for submission to the Virginia Emergency Response Council the following list of new nominees for appointment to the Louisa LEPC for a period of three (3) years under the following categories:

Staffing Audits

Chairman Barnes explained to the Board that he had requested this to be added to the agenda to get their input on soliciting a proposal for a staffing needs analysis. He said that this would allow them to identify the short comings in staffing as well as evaluate the organization, staffing, operations, and costs with the view of identifying opportunities for advance financial as well as opportunities to improve government efficiency and cost containment.

Mr. Lintecum stated that a staffing analysis would cost the County around $30,000; therefore, it would have to go out for bid.

The Board discussed the benefits of having such an analysis done and the importance of ensuring that the proper functions are assigned to the correct departments for them to run efficiently. The Board said that they would like to have projected growth and future staffing needs taken into consideration as well. The Board expressed concerns about contracting an outside firm for the analysis rather than waiting for the new Human Resources Director to evaluate each of the departments. It was the consensus of the Board to authorize the County Administrator to put out an RFP to see if there is an interest in having the analysis completed. The Board agreed that they would submit the items that they would like to have considered for the RFP to the County Administrator by Monday February 14, 2005. Prior to the RFP being sent out for bid, the County Administrator will provide the Board with a statement of purpose for their review.

On motion of Mr. Wright, seconded by Mr. Purcell, which carried by a vote of 7-0, the Board agreed to have the County Administrator submit a request for proposal for a staffing audit that would include their input for them to see if it would be cost effective and worthwhile.

Mr. Gentry said that the Volunteers of Louisa are trying to recognize volunteer’s in the County for all of their efforts and are accepting nominations until March 31, 2005.

Dr. Morgan said that he had discussed the issue of the 911 address signs at the recent EMSAL meeting and they were very supportive of the plan. Dr. Morgan said that they would like to see everyone in the County receive these signs, but they understand the fact that the Board wants to get an idea of how it is going to work before they roll it out to all of the citizens. Dr. Morgan said that Mr. Morgan is currently working on a draft resolution to present to the Board.

Mr. Wright said that the committee that was created with both Mr. Jennings and himself to look at the Goochland and Louisa boundary lines has been researching information and just received additional information this morning that will allow them to start putting a report together. Mr. Wright said that Mr. Morgan is in the process of trying to compile a type of report to submit to the Board, which he hopes that they will be able to address at the next Board meeting.

Mr. Wright said that he had made his first visit to Social Services and the CPMT last week to familiarize himself with what is involved with these two committees and learn the background details about them.

Chairman Barnes said that the Fire Chief would be bringing proposals to the next Board meeting to consider a retirement plan for volunteer fire and rescue staff.

Chairman Barnes said that he would like to commend the Department of Parks and Recreation for the Father/Daughter Valentines Dance that they hosted this past Friday.

BOARD APPOINTMENTS

Mr. Gentry said that he would like to reappoint Olivia Ryan to the Industrial Development Authority and reappoint Chief Stan Batten, James Glass, Kenneth Forrest, Ashland Fortune, and Donald Jones to the Transportation Safety Commission.

Mr. Gentry said that he would volunteer his services for the Jefferson Area Board of Directors to fill Peg Franklin’s vacancy until the Board is able to find another appointee.

Mr. Purcell said that he would like to appoint Patricia Driskill to the Library Advisory Board and reappoint Inez Thurston to the Commission on Aging.

On motion of Dr. Morgan, seconded by Mr. Purcell, which carried by a vote of 7-0, the Board reappointed Olivia Ryan to the Industrial Development Authority, Chief Stan Batten, James Glass, Kenneth Forrest, Ashland Fortune, and Donald Jones to the Transportation Safety Commission, and Inez Thurston to the Commission on Aging and appointed Patricia Driskill to the Library Advisory Board.
Mr. Lintecum informed the Board that he has included a memo from Pat Morgan, County Attorney, notifying them of Mr. James Pleasants resignation from the Board of Zoning Appeals. Mr. Lintecum said that the Judge would like to know if the Board had any recommendations to fill this position.

COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR REPORT

Mr. Lintecum presented his report highlighting the following items:

Mr. Lintecum informed the Board that he has included a letter that he received from Donald Lloyd requesting to withdraw his application for the Owens Creek Agricultural and Forestal District.

Mr. Lintecum informed the Board that he has included an updated list of various projects and items that they have been working on for the last several months.

Mr. Gentry requested Mr. Lintecum to send a letter to each of the Shoreline Management Committee members notifying them that they were waiting for the Director of Community Development to start his position on February 28, 2005 before they hold any meetings since he would be part of this committee along with Mr. Lintecum. Mr. Gentry said that he didn’t see any correspondence relating to VDOT about the signage for the Trevilian Station Battlefield and he would like to have an update on that.

Mr. Lintecum replied that he had spoke with Mr. Thacker about the signage for the battlefield and learned that there is now a charge for those signs whether it is done through the County or through Trevilians Station Battlefield Foundation.

Dr. Morgan said that he knows that they had previously discussed receiving an annual report on biosolids that would reflect the amount of acres that it was applied to, revenue collected, the man hours spent and he would like to have a summary of any complaints and corrective actions.

Mr. Gentry pointed out that the Board had previously discussed “liquor by the drink” tax and he said that he would like to have this included with the meals and lodging tax item.

Chairman Barnes said that they had learned when Zion Crossroads began being developed; the southern end of Zion Crossroads could potentially be a place for restaurants, where as the northern part you could have alcohol by the drink, but in order for that to happen, it would have to go on a referendum. Chairman Barnes stated that this could affect businesses locating in this area if this were the case.

Mr. Lintecum said that in the past a Country Club or a restaurant has initiated this. Mr. Lintecum said that the liquor by the drink is a citizen’s referendum.

Chairman Barnes opened the public hearing at 7:13 p.m. With no one wishing to address the Board, Chairman Barnes closed the public hearing at 7:14 p.m. and brought it back to the Board for further discussion.

The Board discussed the changes that were going to be made in detail saying that they were attempting to have the changes made prior to the June Primary. The Board expressed their concerns about properly notifying all of the registered voters in the precinct that would be changed in a timely fashion once the Justice Department has approved the change and not wanting to set a precedent for other locations.
