Colonial Beach Briefs - June 23, 2010

Police Chief

This Thursday, June 24 at 4 p.m., at a special meeting, the Colonial Beach town council will present a new contract to Police Chief Christopher Hawkins. The meeting will be held at Town Hall. Because contract terms are still under review by council, it is not clear at press time if Hawkins’ contract will contain changes to salary, benefits or other terms or restrictions.

The current employment agreement provides that Hawkins perform the functions and duties specified in Section 4 of the Colonial Beach Town Code, as amended, which states in part “Section 4(b). The council may establish and maintain a police department which shall be under the supervision of a Chief of Police, who shall serve continuously after appointment by the town council, subject to dismissal by the town council, only because of: inefficiency; malfeasance; misfeasance, and/or nonfeasance in office; other acts unbecoming a Police Officer; poor health or retirement, which dismissal, if any, may be made only after an appropriate investigation and hearing before the town council according to rules and regulations set up by the town council.”

School Board Appointment

At a special meeting on Wednesday, June 16, Colonial Beach School Board unanimously agreed to appoint Michelle “Shelly” Jenkins Payne to fill the remaining two-year term of school board member Anne Congdon who resigned her seat in May. Payne ran in May for School Board and received 23.06 percent of votes, coming in third. Payne will serve on the school board beginning July 1, 2010, through June 2012.

Council approves tax rate

At a special town council meeting on June 16, and in possibly the shortest council meeting on record, members voted to not change the tax rate for fiscal year 2010/2011. The real estate tax rate will remain at 60 cents per $100. The projected revenue from real estate taxes for 2010/2011 is $2,793,597, which shows a $91,864 increase from fiscal year 2009/2010 based on recent real estate assessments.
