The Voter Registration Department moved from its former location at the Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) building on Pantops Mountain to the County Office Building – 5th Street in September 2007.  This move was necessitated due to a reduction in available space for the department in the DMV building that significantly reduced the ability of the registrar to conduct in-person absentee voting.  As a result of the move, $31,444.41 in one-time expenses associated with moving and equipping the new offices at COB 5th Street were incurred.    This amount is proposed to be funded from the General Fund Balance.


As a result of an event scheduled at the John Paul Jones Arena on the day of the November 2007 election, a special notice was mailed to all registered voters in the U-Hall voter precinct advising of anticipated heavy traffic around the polling place.   The mailing resulted in $1,186.80 in additional, unanticipated one-time expense for the Voter Registration Department.  This amount is proposed to be funded from the General Fund Balance.

The Albemarle County Department of Social Services has received a grant award from the Virginia Department of Education’s Pre-School Pilot Initiative for FY 2008.  This initiative, which enabled a second Bright Stars classroom at Cale Elementary, was detailed to the Board on June 13, 2007.  At that time, the grant award was anticipated to be $80,312.00 and required an anticipated $32,000.00 match from local government funds.  The Board approved the use of FY 06/07 expenditure savings (which is now part of the General Fund Balance) to fund the anticipated local match.  The grant was subsequently awarded and provides $84,500.00 in grant funding for this second classroom.  The local match totals $39,133.00, of which $7,048.00 will be provided from the School Division and $32,085.00 from the General Fund Balance.
