Summary of Actions Taken by the Board on January 8, 2008
Mr. Donati led the Board, staff, and public in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
Dr. W. Fred Rose, Pastor, Tuckahoe Presbyterian Church, provided the invocation.
The Board approved the minutes of the December 11, 2007 Regular and Special Meetings and November 29, 2007 Special Meeting.
On December 11, 2007, the Board of Supervisors authorized the third of seven sales of General Obligation bonds arising from the March 2005 Bond Referendum. The proceeds from this particular issuance of $30.8 million will fund school facilities and fire stations. Prior to the actual sale of the bonds, the County’s “Triple – Triple A” General Obligation Bond ratings were reaffirmed after a review by the nation’s three independent bond rating agencies (Fitch, Moody’s, and Standard and Poor’s). Only 21 of 3,033 counties nationwide possess these ratings, which offer significant savings to the County’s taxpayers and are one of the key components that are looked at by corporate entities when they consider where to locate their facilities. Mr. Hazelett congratulated John A. Vithoulkas in his new position as Director of Finance and his staff for all of their efforts towards making
better than 99.3 percent of the nation’s counties. Henrico County
Mr. Hazelett recognized several members of his family who were seated in the audience, including his wife, Shardale Hazelett; his sister, Rebecca Killinger; and his sister’s husband, Brit Killinger.
