It was discovered that the recommended funding for the Commonwealth’s Attorney Office had inadvertently omitted a total of $2,530.00 from various operating line items. This request will provide the additional funding from the Board’s Contingency. This appropriation will not increase the total County budget.

Revenue Source: Federal Revenue $ 1,212.00
Transfer from General Fund 135.00
The Department of Justice through the Department of Criminal Justice Services has awarded the Police Department a grant in the amount of $1,212.00 with a local match of $135.00, for a total of $1,347.00. This grant will assist in funding overtime for the Police Department’s “Neighborhood Safety Project” focused in the Southwood Mobile Home Park.

This appropriation will increase the total County budget $1,212.00.
Appropriation #2010003 $3,675,790.00
Revenue Source: Other Fund Balance $ 3,675,790.00
The developer of Belvedere Subdivision, Belvedere Station Land Trust (BSLT), provided performance bonds to the County for Belvedere Phase 1 and Belvedere Phase 1, Blocks 3, 4A, 5A, 6B & 9A covering water protection (erosion control & stormwater management), roads, drainage and related site work, and water and sewer improvements. The bonds totaled $3,675,790.00 and were secured by letters of credit from Wachovia Bank. In November 2008 the County received notice from Wachovia Bank that the letters of credit securing the bonds would not be renewed beyond their current expiration. Since BSLT was unable to get Wachovia Bank to renew the letters of credit and did not provide replacement performance bonds, the County demanded payment on the six (6) letters of credit securing the bonds in January 2009.
BSLT is currently working with Wachovia to obtain new letters of credits for the project and the County Engineer is reviewing the project to determine if the County should complete some of the work rather than allowing BSLT to re-bond all of the incomplete improvements. This request is to move the proceeds from the letters of credit to an expenditure account. The County will then be in a position to either use the funds to complete the improvements or return funds to Wachovia Bank if new letters of credit are issued to BSLT, or a combination of both.

Revenue Source: Other Fund Balance $ 1,083.65
Some individuals expressed an interest in making donations to the County to fund the efforts of the Natural Heritage Committee (NHC). A separate account was established to accept these donations. These donations total $1,075.00 and have accumulated $8.65 in interest. The Chair of the NHC has requested the donated funds be appropriated so the committee can make use of the funds to support their mission - to maintain and restore the County's native biological diversity and provide a healthy environment for the citizens of Albemarle County.
Appropriation #2010005 $ 12,500.00
Revenue Source: Local Revenue (Donations/Grants) $ 12,500.00
At its meeting on June 25, 2009, the following appropriations will be presented to the School Board for their approval:
Woodbrook Elementary School has been awarded a grant in the amount of $4,000.00 from the Bama Works fund of Dave Matthews Band in the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation. These funds will be used to engage students in the “Nature Path to Environmental Learning” school project that will build a walking trail while teaching students about the environment. This grant will be used to conjunction with an $8,500.00 donation to build a walking trail and gravel track.
Woodbrook Elementary School received a donation in the amount of $8,500.00 from William Sterrett. The donor requested this contribution be designated toward the building of a Woodbrook Nature Path and Track on the Woodbrook school grounds. This contribution will work in conjunction with a recently-awarded BAMA grant of $4,000.00 to see this project through.
Appropriation #2010006 $ 57,778.65
Revenue Source: Local Revenue (Rental Income) $ 57,778.65
General Services has requested the use of rental revenues generated from leases of the Old Crozet Elementary School to fund the operating costs of the facility as well as to provide a source of funding for major capital replacements/repairs that may be necessary in the future (e.g. boiler replacement, roof repairs, etc.). It is anticipated that the leases currently approved will generate $57,778.65 during FY10, assuming no reductions are made for certain approved improvements as allowed by the leases.
Since the Waldorf School’s lease expired in September 2007, General Services has absorbed all cost of utilities and maintenance for this facility without a corresponding increase in its operating budget, to the detriment of other programs for which the Department is responsible. During the FY10 budget process, an additional $21,800.00 was requested and subsequently approved to cover the increase in fuel oil costs at County buildings, including the Old Crozet School. Of this amount, approximately $8,000.00 relates to the Old Crozet School building. With approval of this request, General Services’ FY10 operating budget will be reduced $8,000.00 and the reduction used to decrease budgeted “anticipated salary savings”’.
