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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
