BOARD OF SUPERVISORS’ COMMENTS
Mrs. O’Bannon thanked County staff for the depth and quality of information presented to the Board during the four days of legislative budget reviews on the proposed FY 2006-07 Fiscal Plan. She noted that the efforts of staff would help make it possible for the Board to reduce the County’s real estate tax rate by an additional two cents in both 2006 and 2007.
Mrs. O’Bannon expressed concern that the evening’s general agenda did not include a Board paper addressing the finding of the Planning Commission that the proposed WHCE Transmission Tower Site is in accord with the County’s Comprehensive Plan. She reviewed the Board’s prior discussions and actions regarding a plan to construct a County telecommunications tower to broadcast emergency information to citizens over an FM radio station owned by Henrico County Public Schools. After hearing comments from other Board members as well as the County Manager and County Attorney, Mr. Glover explained why the majority of the Board was not in favor of moving ahead with the Board paper or the project.
