PRESENTATIONS

Presentation - A Resolution recognizing T. Hubert Ellis for his years of service to Louisa County

Mr. Wright indicated that T. Hubert Ellis served on the Industrial Development Authority for 22 years.  Mr. Wright stated Mr. Ellis was a wonderful person and did tremendous service to the Community.  Mr. Jennings said he worked with Mr. Ellis on the Industrial Development Authority Board and not only had the pleasure of working with him, but also enjoyed him as a neighbor and a friend.    

The Board presented the resolution to Mr. Ellis' family.


Resolution - Recognizing Allen B. Jennings for his dedication, knowledge and faithful service to the citizens of Louisa County

        On motion of Mr. Harper, seconded by Mr. Havasy, which carried by a vote of 6-0, the Board adopted a resolution recognizing Allen B. Jennings for his dedication, knowledge and faithful service to the citizens of Louisa County.

Mr. Jennings stated he gave all of his honor and credit to God because without his wisdom this couldnt of happened.  Mr. Jennings said he enjoyed working with the entire Board and that he had a good, definite relationship with each member.  Mr. Jennings thanked his friends and family for their support and presence.  

Mr. Gentry stated he would comment about Mr. Jennings and Mr. Purcell after Mr. Purcell was recognized as well.

Mr. Harper stated Mr. Jennings was usually very brief in what he said; however, when he spoke up, he was to the point.  Mr. Harper said members have had their differences throughout the Board, but he never saw Mr. Jennings cross and he appreciated that.  


Mr. Havasy said he thoroughly enjoyed working with Mr. Jennings.  Mr. Havasy said the nice thing about working on this Board was that each and every member became personal friends after a while and it was the brightest, most compassionate Board he had ever worked on.  Mr. Havasy said Mr. Jennings words and inspirations had been an asset to all members.  Mr. Havasy said the two members the Board was losing would be sorely missed and wished them good luck in the future.

Mr. Purcell stated he really enjoyed working with Mr. Jennings.  

Mr. Wright said he worked closely with Mr. Jennings on the Building and Grounds Committee for three years.  Mr. Wright said Mr. Jennings was always very helpful and short and to the point.  Mr. Wright added that Mr. Jennings brought a lot to the Board and he would be missed.  
 

Resolution - Recognizing Eric F. Purcell for his dedication, knowledge and faithful service to the citizens of Louisa County


        On motion of Mr. Gentry, seconded by Mr. Havasy, which carried by a vote of 6-0, the Board adopted a resolution recognizing Eric F. Purcell for his dedication, knowledge and faithful service to the citizens of Louisa County.

Mr. Purcell thanked the citizens of the Louisa District for giving him the opportunity to be their Supervisor.  Mr. Purcell said each Board member brought their own philosophy of Government to the table and everyone knew he had strong beliefs about what Government should do and more importantly, what it shouldnt do.  

Mr. Purcell stated he took this job running on a platform that was essentially fourfold.  Mr. Purcell said he tried to be a voice for the younger generation that he felt hadnt been represented before and he thought the Board had made a lot of strides in the Community for them by expanding culturally and he was proud of that.  Mr. Purcell said he also ran because he wanted to support the school system and even though the two Boards had gone through disagreements, he hoped the Board of Supervisors would continue to be fiscally responsible and support the schools at the same time.  Mr. Purcell said in addition, he ran to provide a voice for the protection of individuals and their rights and he hoped the Board would look out for the rights of the people in the future as well.  Mr. Purcell said it had always been his belief that Government shouldnt exist to be a nuisance or to discourage citizens from exercising their liberties.  

Mr. Purcell said finally, this Board had encouraged businesses and industries to locate to Louisa County and they must continue to do so.  Mr. Purcell said the County had a great opportunity to diversify the tax base and to provide tax relief to the people.  Mr. Purcell added that in years to come, he hoped the Board would continue the hard work that they started.  

Mr. Purcell thanked each Board member for their support over the last few years.  Mr. Purcell said this had been a Board that treated each other with respect and decency throughout the differences of opinion and battles they fought and it was a board he was really proud to have been part of.  Mr. Purcell said he wanted to thank his wife, Jennifer, because without her and the support of his family, nothing he had been able to do would of happened.  Mr. Purcell stated he thought the following quote from George Washington should be remembered by anyone in an elected office or leadership position:  “Be tender with the young, compassionate with the aging, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong because some day in life youll have been all of these.”
   

Mr. Gentry thanked Mr. Jennings and Mr. Purcell for all of their hard work and said he felt obligated to tell the taxpayers what they didnt do, which included the following:  

      ·        They did not forget their political promises they made over four years ago.
·        They did not forget planning and managing growth.
·        They did not forget economic development.
·        They did not forget the elderly and handicapped.
·        They did not forget property rights.
·        They did not forget the taxpayers of Louisa County.
·        They did not lose their dedication to Louisa County.
·        They did not forget children and teachers.
·        They did not forget to be gentlemen in professionals.
·        They did not forget the goals of a rural Louisa County.
·        They did not do all of the above for the pay or personal gain.

Mr. Gentry added that the two members would be missed and wished them the best of luck.

Mr. Jennings said it was a great pleasure working with Mr. Purcell over the past four years and he enjoyed most of his remarks because he said many valid things and made a difference with the Board.  

Mr. Harper said Mr. Purcells youth and enthusiasm was absolutely needed and appreciated and would truly be missed.  Mr. Harper said he enjoyed Mr. Purcells passion that he had shown and the causes he brought forward.  Mr. Harper thanked Mr. Purcell for his service.    


Mr. Havasy said he had a unique distinction to sit next to Mr. Purcell and they have had a lot of discussions and a lot of agreements.  Mr. Havasy said it had been a joy having Mr. Purcell on the Board.  

Mr. Wright said it had been a pleasure working with Mr. Purcell and working together was the key to a successful Board.  Mr. Wright said in his opinion, Mr. Purcell had matured considerably over the past four years, along with every other member of the Board.  Mr. Wright said Mr. Jennings and Mr. Purcell would be missed.


OLD BUSINESS

Discussion - Increase in the security amount for road construction

Mr. Lintecum said in August, the Board was presented with a request to increase the required road security from the current $50 per linear foot to $100 per linear foot.  Mr. Lintecum indicated that the Board asked that a comment period be opened to inform the citizens of the proposed increase and allow them the opportunity to submit comments.  Mr. Lintecum stated the purpose of the security was for the County to be able to construct the roads infrastructure in the event that a developer defaulted on a project.  Mr. Lintecum added an advertisement requesting citizen input was run in the Central Virginia newspaper for one month asking for comment on this increase, but there were no responses.

Mr. Coffey said once the road was inspected and approved the security was then released back to the developer.  Mr. Havasy questioned at what point in the procedure was the security money requested.  Mr. Coffey said it was part of the subdivision application process and before the plat was approved and sent for recordation, the bond would be posted.

Mr. Havasy questioned if there had been a problem in this area with developers defaulting on a project.  Mr. Coffey said the County hadnt had a problem during his tenure, but this request was basically for the protection of the citizens that would locate in these future subdivisions.  

Mr. Purcell questioned what criteria would be used in determining the release of the bond.  Mr. Coffey said the same procedure and process would be used as it is now.  Mr. Coffey indicated that half of the bond would be released and then another forty to forty-five percent would be released after the road was accepted by VDOT.  Mr. Coffey added the other five to ten percent would be held until the shoulders were completed.


Mr. Purcell said he had a meeting with VDOT a few days ago and there had been some new rules passed down at the State Legislature that were wide in scope and devastating to small local developers.  Mr. Purcell indicated that the rule passed allowed the permitters at VDOT to request anything, even after the fact.  Mr. Purcell said because VDOT was the final arbiter in getting County bonds released, he would recommend that the Board instruct Mr. Lintecum to present to them the rule that was passed at the legislature for review to determine how that may apply to any security that the County had and the process for how that money was dispensed.  Mr. Purcell said until the County met with VDOT and understood what was passed, he thought it was hard to implement something like this, even though it was obviously needed by the Community Development Department.  

Mr. Gentry said when this issue was discussed before, he was concerned about the release of the amount.  Mr. Gentry said he thought more than forty percent of the work had been completed when the developer got to the shoulders; therefore, more than forty percent of the bond should be released at that point.  Mr. Gentry said he thought the payout schedule for releasing the bond should be in three phases.


Mr. Purcell stated that he would like to add that VDOT was considering adopting a policy where they could abandon a State road at any time.  Mr. Purcell indicated that the deadline for comment was December 30, 2007 and this was something that the Board should think about.  Mr. Gentry added that if a road were abandoned from the State, it would come back into the County system.


Mr. Wright said he was concerned that if a developer defaulted, the taxpayers were going to have to pay extra money to get the roads completed.  Mr. Wright said the Board had to protect that, which is what this request would do.  

Mr. Harper stated he would like clarification from Mr. Coffey of the release process.  Mr. Coffey said typically what would happen was VDOT would tell the County that the road bed was in and fifty percent of the bond could be released.
Mr. Coffey said after the subdivision road was in, VDOT would let the County know and they would release another forty to forty-five percent of the bond.  Mr. Coffey indicated that about ninety to ninety-five percent of the bond was released before the shoulders were completed, which then the remaining amount of the bond would be released.  Mr. Coffey added that they released the bond as expeditiously as possible.  

Mr. Havasy stated he would like to make a motion to increase the security amount for road construction from $50 per linear foot to $100 per linear foot.  Mr. Harper seconded the motion.  Mr. Wright requested a roll call vote.

Resolution - To initiate the rezoning of TMP 51 55 from Industrial (IND) to Commercial General (C-2)

On motion of Mr. Havasy, seconded by Mr. Gentry, which carried by a vote of 6-0, the Board voted to initiate the rezoning of TMP 51 55 from Industrial (IND) to Commercial General (C-2).

Discussion - VDOTs New Transportation Rules

Mr. Gentry stated he would like to add discussion of VDOTs New Transportation Rules as an additional item to the agenda.

On motion of Mr. Jennings, seconded by Mr. Purcell, which carried by a vote of 6-0, the Board voted to add discussion of VDOTs New Transportation Rules as an additional item to the agenda.

Mr. Gentry said hed heard a lot of rumors, particularly in the last month, that the County was going to get into the secondary road system and if this was the first step of it, he thought this was a case where the Board needed to express their concerns to Delegate Janis and Senator Houck that they werent happy with the way this was going.

Mr. Purcell said VDOT indicated to him that this was coming from the Governors Office in his attempt to control traffic problems in Tidewater and Northern Virginia.  Mr. Purcell said the problem was that it would have a dramatic effect on rural localities in a greater range than it would in other localities because of the abandonment issue and the localities relative lack of funds to make of that, which would require localities to encourage more development with Homeowners Associations.  Mr. Purcell stated he thought the Board needed to express the fact that theyve worked really hard to get State roads as a mandatory requirement for subdividing in Louisa County.  

Mr. Wright agreed with Mr. Purcell and said the rural areas couldnt afford that.

On motion of Mr. Harper, seconded by Mr. Gentry, which carried by a vote 6-0, the Board voted to instruct Mr. Lintecum to immediately send a letter to the Governors Office requesting that they differentiate between the areas that were causing the traffic impact, such as Tidewater and Northern Virginia, and the rural areas that relied strictly on real estate taxes to fund what had to be done.  

NEW BUSINESS

Resolution - For a supplemental appropriation of funds collected by proffers

Mr. McLeod said at the December 1, 2007 meeting, the Board discussed proffers and it appeared to him that it would be a good idea to give the Board a recap on the proffers collected to date and which developments they had come from.  Mr. McLeod said at this point, the only proffers collected were from the Spring Creek subdivision.  Mr. McLeod indicated that the Cutalong projects proffers were estimated at $445,500 for 891 lots and the County had two rezoning requests that had cash proffers included with them, BT Goodmans and the Huntington Way project; however, at this point, the Community Development Department had not processed any building permits for those neighborhoods.  

Mr. McLeod noted that in November 2006, the Board appropriated $49,560 for the Moss-Nuckols Elementary School for proffers received during FY 05 and FY 06.  Mr. McLeod added the County collected $26,520 in proffers in FY 07.  Mr. McLeod stated it was the Boards prerogative to appropriate the funds from FY 07 to any capital project scheduled to be completed during the next five years.  Mr. McLeod said he thought the best choices for the proffers to go to were the capital building requirements of the Moss-Nuckols Elementary School or the funds Parks and Recreation would require to develop a playground for the Moss-Nuckols Elementary School.  

Mr. Gentry said originally, the cash proffers collected were distributed at a percentage rate to the different categories and questioned why the proffers couldnt be allocated back to the percentages.  Mr. McLeod indicated that one of the categories was the schools, but the proffers were appropriate for any capital item.  Mr. McLeod added it was the Boards decision on which project they wanted the funds allocated to.  

        On motion of Mr. Harper, seconded by Mr. Purcell, which carried by a vote of 6-0, the Board adopted a resolution for a supplemental appropriation in the amount of $26,520 of funds collected by proffers for the Moss-Nuckols Elementary School.  

Resolution - Appropriation and approval to fund pass through monies to Trevilians Station Battlefield Foundation

Mr. McLeod said the County received pass through monies from the Federal Government through the Virginia Department of Transportation in the amount of $370,000 to allow for the purchase of the Dunn property as part of the preservation of Trevilian Station Battlefield.

Mr. Gibson said tourism had been one of the linchpins of Virginias economy for years and because of the actions that the Board had taken over the last couple of years and because of private donations, Louisa County was starting to make a tremendous impact on tourism.  Mr. Gibson said Trevilians Battlefield was the Countys opportunity for historical tourism, particularly with the Civil War venues around the County.  Mr. Gibson said he hoped the Board would continue to support tourism as the years come because it was, and would continue to be, important to Louisa County.  

Mr. Purcell said he would not be supporting this because he made it very clear a few years back that he was not going to appropriate any more money from the State, Local or Federal level for this project; therefore, he would honor that.  

        On motion of Mr. Havasy, seconded by Mr. Gentry, with Messrs Jennings and Purcell voting against, which carried by a vote of 4-2, the Board adopted a resolution for appropriation and approval to fund pass through monies of $369,281.31 to Trevilians Station Battlefield Foundation.

Resolution - To award contract for a generator at the Northeast Creek Water Treatment Plant

Mr. Bar Delk, General Manager for the Louisa County Water Authority, stated paragraph 3 of addendum #3 of the buy/sell agreement between the County of Louisa, the Water Authority and the Town of Louisa required the installation of a generator at the Northeast Creek Water Treatment Plant at no cost to the Town.  Mr. Delk indicated that efforts were made to try to utilize one of the generators from other County facilities, but they werent large enough.  Mr. Delk added that funds for this generator had been in the CIP Budget for several years.  

Mr. Delk said included in the Board Packet was the recommendation from Dewberry and Davis, Inc. to award the bid to Design Electric, Inc. for $106,454.  Mr. Delk noted that two additional bids were received, with the highest bid being $124,447.    

Mr. Wright questioned what would be done with the generator that was going to be used.  Mr. Linhares said the County had an extra generator that was donated by one of the power companys and that was used at Social Services and the plan was to use the other generator at the District Court.    

        On motion of Mr. Purcell, seconded by Mr. Havasy, which carried by a vote of 6-0, the Board adopted a resolution to award contract to Design Electric, Inc. in the amount of $106,454 for a generator at the Northeast Creek Water Treatment Plant.

Mr. Delk stated the Water Authority would like to express their appreciation to the two Board members that were leaving.    

Resolution - Awarding the contract for lawn care and landscaping services for the County

Mr. McLeod said the County put out an invitation for bid in October 2007 for lawn care services and landscaping.  Mr. McLeod noted that 22 County facilities would require lawn care services and four of those facilities required landscaping services.  Mr. McLeod indicated that bids were sent to 10 vendors and advertised in The Central Virginian and posted on the County Website.  Mr. McLeod stated the County received nine bids, which ranged from $45,063.00 to $105,600.00.  Mr. McLeod said Michael Yancey from White Ash Grounds Management was determined to be the lowest and responsible bidder.  Mr. McLeod added that based on cost, it was determined that an alternate be added to the final contract, which included landscaping services at the Betty Queen Intergenerational Center for $1,080.00.  Mr. McLeod requested that the Board approve this bid for a total of $46,143.00.  

Mr. Purcell stated the bids received were quite a range and questioned if Mr. McLeod felt confident that the services would be performed in a quality manner.  Mr. McLeod said staff had taken Mr. Yancey to the locations and explained what was to be done.  Mr. McLeod said it appeared that Mr. Yancey was trying to come in at cost to get the services in order for his business to expand in this area.  Mr. Gentry said for the record, he had the same question as Mr. Purcell.      

Mr. Harper questioned if this was an annual event.  Mr. Shelhorse said this was a one-year contract with the option to renew for two years.  Mr. McLeod said $46,143 was an annual cost.  Mr. McLeod added there was an option for cost of living if the vendor chose to renew the contract next year.    

Mr. Wright said there was only about a five percent difference between the first bid and the second bid, which showed there was competition.


On motion of Mr. Jennings, seconded by Mr. Havasy, which carried by a vote of 6-0, the Board adopted a resolution awarding the contract for lawn care and landscaping services for the County to Michael B. Yancey dba White Ash Grounds Management in the amount of $46,143.

Resolution - For the transfer of appropriated capital improvement projects funds for FY 08 for park development and enhancement

Ms. Shelhorse stated at the request of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee, the Parks and Recreation staff had been developing a master plan for the development of a park at the Betty Queen Intergenerational Center site.  Ms. Shelhorse said the activities and facilities they were designing included a picnic pavilion big enough to host a corporate event, a playground, a volleyball court, a disc golf course and a fitness trail; a combination they felt would have cross-generational appeal.  Ms. Shelhorse said staff felt these items would enhance the Betty Queen site tremendously and even be beneficial to the aquatic facility.  Ms. Shelhorse noted that by giving residents multi-recreational activities at one site, it would encourage them to partake in all of the activities.  Ms. Shelhorse said the fact that all ages could make use of the facilities encouraged the intergenerational activities that were the cornerstone of this project.

Ms. Shelhorse said she would be presenting the basic plan to the Advisory Committee at their January meeting.  Ms. Shelhorse indicated that the overall cost of the project was estimated to be $120,000, which would make use of most of the balance of $137,000 in the park development and enhancement line item.  Ms. Shelhorse said beginning the work this spring would mean that elements of the design would be available for use by the citizens this summer, in conjunction with the opening of the aquatic facility.

Ms. Shelhorse indicated that staff had done preliminary research on the cost of the improvements.  Ms. Shelhorse said they went to other localities to evaluate their facilities and had a park designer look at their location to give them budget estimates on the construction of the items listed in the project.  Ms. Shelhorse said the following were their initial estimates:

      ·        20 x 36 Pavilion (incl. Picnic tables, grills, trash cans) - $32,000
·        Playground - $56,000
·        Walking Track with Fitness Course - $20,000
·        Disc Golf Course - $5,000
·        Volleyball Court - $2,000
·        Site work - $5,000
·        Project Total - $120,000

Ms. Shelhorse stated staff saw the pavilion as the first priority as a nice compliment to the aquatic facility; however, she would be meeting with the Advisory Board in January to determine which projects would be their priority.  Ms. Shelhorse said she hoped that by earmarking the money in the park development line item to a specific project now, they would be able to proceed with developing a final design plan and acquiring the needed bids, in order for parts of the project to be completed in time with the pools opening in May.

Mr. Wright stated he was concerned that everything that was done for recreation in Louisa County had to be centered around the Town of Louisa.  Mr. Wright added he had constituents that lived 32 miles from the Town and that there was no County owned or operated facilities located in the Mountain Road District.  Mr. Wright indicated that this would be the last request he would support until a facility was located to the southeast part of the County.  

On motion of Mr. Gentry, seconded by Mr. Jennings, which carried by a vote of 6-0, the Board adopted a resolution for the transfer of appropriated capital improvement projects funds for FY 08 for park development and enhancement at the Betty Queen Intergenerational Center.

COMMITTEE REPORTS

Mr. Gentry stated he attended the Planning Commission Work Session last Thursday, where Dr. Pettit and her staff were invited to the meeting to discuss the School part of the CIP. Mr. Gentry said the discussion and the relationship between the County and the Schools went extremely well and he liked to think that was step one in communicating more openly with each other.  

Mr. Wright stated he met with the Governor and eight members of his cabinet last week in Charlottesville for the ribbon cutting at the one-stop employment center.  Mr. Wright indicated that there were eight State agencies and six private agencies located in the same building.  Mr. Wright said about 400 people was present at the event.  Mr. Gentry added that it was a tremendous turnout that got the Governor's attention.

Mr. Gentry stated he would like to re-appoint Debbie Gentry to the Library Advisory Board.  Mr. Wright stated he would like to re-appoint Mark Monson to the Industrial Development Authority.  Mr. Wright stated he would like to re-appoint Mark Monson to the Thomas Jefferson Water Resources Protection Foundation.  Mr. Jennings stated he would like to re-appoint Gene Newman to the Industrial Development Authority.

        On motion of Mr. Purcell, seconded by Mr. Havasy, which carried by a vote of 6-0, the Board appointed Ms. Gentry to the Library Advisory Board, Mr. Monson to the Industrial Development Authority, Mr. Monson to the Thomas Jefferson Water Resources Protection Foundation and Mr. Newman to the Industrial Development Authority.
