Rev. Dr. Albert C. Lynch, Pastor of St. Andrew's United Methodist Church, delivered the invocation.


The Board approved the minutes of the June 9, 2009 Regular and Special Meetings.



Mr. Hazelett introduced Donald L. Hart, Jr., 2008-09 President of the Virginia Association of Counties (VACo) and the senior member of the Accomack County Board of Supervisors, who brought greetings from VACo and Accomack County.Mr. Hart emphasized Henrico County's importance to VACo and the Commonwealth of Virginia, referred to VACo's focus on unfunded mandates during the 2009 General Assembly Session, and spoke to the importance of county participation in VACo. He also complimented Mr. Kaechele for his past service on VACo's Board of Directors and Mrs. O'Bannon for her current service on the VACo Board.


The Henrico Unit Office of Virginia Cooperative Extension was recently presented the Outstanding Unit Award by the Alpha Gamma Chapter of Epsilon Sigma Phi, a national honorary fraternity dedicated to fostering standards of excellence in the Extension System.The purpose of this annual award is to recognize Extension units across the state that have demonstrated outstanding effort in developing Extension programs or projects within the past two years. Henrico was the lone recipient for 2009 out of 107 Extension units within the Commonwealth.The following staff members were recognized for their joint efforts in support of the Henrico Extension Leadership Council, the Henrico Harvest Fair, and the Henrico County Board of Supervisors' proclamation designating October 2008 as Cooperative Extension Month:Karen Carter, Unit Coordinator and Horticulture Extension Agent; Lisa Sanderson, Horticulture Extension Agent; Teddy Martin, Jr., Horticulture Program Assistant; Devandas Kendrick, Family Nutrition Program Assistant; and Caryn Coombs, Office Assistant III.


Mrs. O'Bannon clarified the Certificate of Public Need process that is required by the Commonwealth of Virginia for the construction of new hospitals and medical facilities in Virginia's localities. In responding to a citizen comment during the Board's June 9, 2009 public hearing on the 2026 Comprehensive Plan, she erroneously referred to the Certificate of Public Need as a Certificate of Patient Need and also incorrectly identified the process as a federal requirement. The Virginia Department of Health and Central Virginia Health Planning Agency have the responsibility for reviewing Certificate of Public Need requests in the Commonwealth. Mrs. O'Bannon stated that this process is part of Virginia's master plan for making health care available to persons without insurance.
