Foulds comments on Bird's departure

   Director of Zoning Chuck Bird, who has held the post in Colonial Beach for the past 61/2 years, will be leaving a little earlier than previously expected.  
According to Town Manager Val Foulds, Bird's last date has been changed to March 17th.  Foulds says, “When Mr. Bird resigned he gave three options.  I picked Option B which gave him a 30-day window.  After I had a chance to think about it from a budget perspective, I thought I could use these funds and put them in a reserve for using him as an on-call person.”  
   Foulds says she doesn't want to be in the position of having to call Bird with questions after he is gone and keeping him on the phone for an hour and not being able to compensate him for his time.  “That's what happened with the former Town Manager,”she added.  Foulds says that Town Attorney Andrea Erard is going to be working on and finishing the Flood Plain Ordinance, a matter of high priority.  But with regard to finalizing the sub-division plat submitted by Potomac Crossing or handling things like Conditional Use Permits, things with attached deadlines, Foulds doesn't yet know how the Town will proceed.  “In a less challenging time it would be so straightforward”, she sighs.  Foulds says the one thing she “doesn't want to do is what's been done in the past, which is put a band-aid on it.”
    The Town has also not yet filled the position of Building Official.  Foulds says she is “weighing the volume to support one here in town at this time.”  However, to help ease the burden on the zoning department, Bill Seay, a member of the Colonial Beach Police Department, has been appointed to act as a “liaison from the zoning office”.
 Foulds says that Seay was appointed based on his “Planning Commission experience, his familiarity with the ladies who work in zoning and his people skills”.  Foulds elaborated saying that Seay knew how to problem solve and was resourceful.  Seay previously served on the Planning Commission.
   Whomever the Town appoints to serve in the capacity of Director of Zoning will be responsible for interpreting the Town's zoning laws.
