Summary of Actions Taken by the Board on October 25, 2005


Mr. Thornton led the Board, staff, and public in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.


Rev. Angelo Chatmon, Pastor, Pilgrim Journey Baptist Church, provided the invocation.


The minutes of the October 11, 2005 Regular and Special Meetings and September 29, 2005 Special Meeting were approved.



Mrs. O’Bannon commented on a session she recently attended at the Virginia Municipal League annual conference where there was discussion of the deployment of broadband services.  She pointed out that earlier this month the City of Manassas became the first municipality in the nation to implement full-scale broadband-over-power line technology, which simplifies Internet access for its citizens.  Mrs. O’Bannon expressed hope that Mr. Hazelett will review the feasibility of opening up local broadband services to competition as County staff continues ongoing negotiations with Comcast to extend the term of the County’s existing cable television franchise.


Mr. Thornton acknowledged the passing of civil-rights pioneer Rosa Parks on October 24, 2005, nearly 50 years after she refused to relinquish her bus seat in Montgomery, Alabama.  He noted that Mrs. Parks’ courageous act of civil disobedience helped to change the fabric of this nation.
