LEVEL IN THE FY 2010 REVISED BUDGET PLAN (11:28 a.m.) A Certificate of Publication was filed from the editor of the Washington Times showing that notice of said public hearing was duly advertised in that newspaper in the issue of September 3, 2009.

Following the public hearing, Chairman Bulova read a statement entitled FY 2009 Carryover Review and FY 2011 Budget Development, copies of which were distributed to the Board. She noted that as part of the FY 2010 deliberations, the Board eliminated more than $90 million in County spending and 306 positions.

Chairman Bulova announced the following Budget Committee meetings this fall to continue work with the County Executive and staff on direction and strategy to

address FY 2011 requirements:

–  –  –

Chairman Bulova encouraged Board Members to attend the various Community and Employee Dialogues being held around the County and to publicize these events within each district. She distributed copies of the schedule. She also noted that County union organizations and employee groups will be hosting budget discussions.

Chairman Bulova expressed appreciation to County residents who have volunteered time and talents to participate on budget committees and work groups. The Department of Management and Budget (DMB) will set up a process to facilitate information sharing among the committees, including a page on the website where contact information and questions will be published. In addition, she is hosting an information exchange meeting on October 13, 2009, from 7p.m. in Conference Rooms 4 and 5 of the Government Center to assist with that process.

Chairman Bulova relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Hyland and moved adoption of the Carryover package including Supplemental Appropriation Resolution (SAR) AS 10036 and amendment to the Fiscal Planning Resolution (FPR) AS 10900, including the FY 2009 Carryover Review Package as presented on August 3, 2009, which resulted in an available balance of $66.1 million. Of this balance, $11.4 million was utilized for Administrative Adjustments and the remaining balance of $54.7 million, or 83 percent of the total available balance,

was set aside in reserve, including the following:

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board took action regarding some Health Department grant positions. See Clerk’s Summary Item #19, page 11.)

–  –  –

Noting the lateness of the hour, Chairman Bulova announced that the Board would recess to attend the 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony and continue with the Budget Carryover and the rest of the agenda later.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board continued the Budget Carryover discussion and took further actions. See Clerk’s Summary Item #14.)

–  –  –

At 12:04 p.m. the Board recessed and, at 12:53 p.m., reconvened with all Members being present, with the exception of Supervisor Gross, and with Chairman Bulova presiding.

–  –  –

Discussion continued on the Carryover Review regarding a Smart Savings initiative on trash collection in public schools by the County, with input from Susan Datta, Director, Department of Management and Budget, and Edward L.

Long, Jr., Deputy County Executive.

Supervisor Herrity noted that the County performed an extensive analysis in the 1990s on this issue and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide an in-depth cost analysis to explain the change in competitiveness.

Following input from Ms. Datta, without objection, it was so ordered.

Discussion ensued regarding possible deferral of trash collection efforts in the Schools, recycling, and contract value service enhancements, with input from Mr. Long; Jimmie Jenkins, Director, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services; Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive; and Ms. Datta.

Chairman Bulova clarified that her motion includes the strategy that was presented by Mr. Long: make the appropriation, hold the positions and trucks in escrow until the Board of Supervisors has formally met with the School Board on September 29 to decide what to do, and address changes at that time.

Following further discussion regarding the Smart Savings Committee, Supervisor Herrity asked to amend the motion to direct staff to proceed with the trash collection initiative (not hiring staff, but acquiring the trucks) and provide a detailed analysis prior to September 29 like what would be done if a public service were to be privatized. This was accepted with the understanding that the item was left intact in the budget.

Further discussion ensued regarding the medical director for the Department of Fire and Rescue as well as organizational change for the blight abatement function, with input from Mr. Griffin.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Cook, Supervisor Foust, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Herrity, Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor McKay, Supervisor Smyth, Chairman Bulova, and Acting-Chairman Hyland voting “AYE,” Supervisor Gross being absent.

Acting-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Bulova.

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

15. WORLD POLICE AND FIRE GAMES (1:17 p.m.)

–  –  –

services personnel from over 60 countries participate in the events which rank as the second largest international athletic competition in the world.

Supervisor Frey said that staff from public safety agencies, Board offices, the Park Authority, and the Fairfax County Convention and Visitors Corporation (FCCVC) will be supporting plans and preparations for the event. In light of the planning and preparation efforts, he asserted the prudence of targeting some funding over the next several months to offset preliminary required costs. These costs include payment to the World Police and Fire Games Federation, required site visits, and promotion opportunities for the games. More detailed accounting and budget estimates for the event will be available as they are developed.

Supervisor Frey noted that a possible source of this funding is available as a result of County funding available through the FCCVC. Each year, the County transfers 25 percent of the estimated revenue received from the 2 percent additional transient occupancy tax granted as part of the 2004 General Assembly. In accordance with the County Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with FCCVC, a reconciliation of the actual revenue received and the County’s contribution to the FCCVC is performed annually. If actual designated revenue is above the estimate, the County’s contribution to FCCVC is increased, but if it is below the estimate, FCCVC is obligated to return the difference to the County.

Based on actual Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 designated receipts and in accordance with the MOU, the FCCVC is obligated to return to the County $474,611 during FY

2010. This amount has not been included in the balances previously identified to the Board pending final revenue accruals.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct that this balance of $474,611 (the actual amount to be determined upon completion of final audits) be retained by FCCVC solely for the purpose of funding a portion of the County’s initial contribution to the 2015 World Police and Fire Games. This motion was multiply seconded.

Supervisor Foust asked to amend the motion to direct FCCVC staff to report with an accounting of the expenditure of the funds, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Gross being absent.

16. BUDGET CHALLENGE (1:20 p.m.) (NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board took action on the Carryover Review.

See Clerk’s Summary Item #11.)
