Supervisors updated on proposed state budget amendments

The King George Board of Supervisors, like those in most localities across the state, faces difficult decisions that are expected to include large budget cuts throughout county and school budgets for the next two fiscal years.
No decisions have yet been made.
But this could be the first budget where county positions may be eliminated.
At the beginning of last year’s tough budget process, supervisors provided guidance that included no salary increases but also included no layoffs.
This coming year could be different.

Belle Grove rezoning, mining hearing postponed

 King George has postponed a public hearing on three requests, including a rezoning, to enable the mining of sand and gravel on hundreds of acres at Belle Grove Plantation property, the site of President James Madison’s birthplace.
The hearing was postponed due to incomplete information in the county’s requested legal advertisement.
The public hearing, which was originally scheduled for next week on Jan. 19, is now slated to take place on Feb. 2, beginning at 7 p.m.

Sisson elected chairman of Board of Supervisors

Brooks elected as vice chairman, 2010 meetings scheduled

Phyllis Cook
Staff Reporter

Dale Sisson was elected by his colleagues to preside as chairman of the King George County Board of Supervisors for 2010, with Cedell Brooks Jr. elected as vice chairman.  
The two were also elected to the same offices for the King George County Service Authority and the King George Wireless Authority. They last served in these respective offices in 2007.
The officer elections took place last Tuesday. The meeting on Jan. 5 was the first of the year, and the election of officers and approval of meeting dates for the calendar year were the first orders of business.
Sisson holds the one at-large seat, representing voters throughout the county.  He was first elected in 2003 and is currently in his second four-year term.

Governor’s proposed 2010-11 budget is full of fiscal pain

Governor Timothy M. Kaine’s proposed biennial budget was unveiled on Dec. 18 for consideration by the 2010 General Assembly, along with a new governor.
It reflects Kaine's fourth round of cuts since 2007, when falling tax revenues became evident due to a tanking economy.
Kaine said he developed the budget during “the toughest national economic conditions since the 1930s.”
Though the condition of the economy can’t be argued against, state legislators have nonetheless found fault with Kaine’s spending cuts and cost-saving measures.

Supervisors’ goals, mission being put into a written strategic plan

The King George Board of Supervisors agreed at a special meeting in early October with suggestions from staff to let it develop a draft strategic plan to codify the board’s vision, mission and strategic goals for the county.  
This exercise is not intended to change the county’s direction.  
It is instead intended to put down onto paper the goals that continue to be the guiding principles the board has been following.

Supervisors put off decision on School Board fund request

The King George Board of Supervisors postponed a decision on a request by the School Board which asked for $470,499.
The request relayed by Superintendent Candace Brown was considered at last Thursday’s meeting on Nov. 5, but put off by supervisors until they can get a complete report on Nov. 17 from the county finance department on the request.
Supervisors also want to know what the School Board would do with the money.
The School Board actually ended up with a surplus of $1,192,001 in unspent funds at the end of fiscal year 2008-2009, which ended June 30.
The School Board had voted to ask for $470,499 at a meeting on Oct. 14.

Fairview Beach rezoning granted for townhouses

Rezoning approval was granted by the King George Board of Supervisors for a townhouse development requested by Fairview Beach, LLC, represented by Bob Moesle.
The action at last week’s meeting on Aug. 18 was approved on a vote of 4-0.  
Dahlgren Supervisor James Mullen disqualified himself from voting on the matter, as he does on many development proposals, due to a potential future business conflict of interest.

KG Supervisors end fiscal year in the black

The King George Board of Supervisors was last week given an updated forecast for the end of the 2008-2009 fiscal year that puts the county in the black with about $764,056 on the plus side.
Though the fiscal year officially ended June 30, both revenue and expenditures can be accrued back for 60 days in accordance with last year’s adopted budget.
That’s a big turnaround for the county budget. After the economy took a downturn last fall, year-end deficits were being projected of over a million dollars in the red.
The latest end-of-year balances were provided at the July 21 meeting by Donita Harper, Deputy County Administrator & Director of Finance.
