Rev. Michael J. Poole, Pastor of Hatcher Memorial Baptist Church, delivered the invocation.
The Board approved the minutes of the November 24, 2009 Regular Meeting.
The County's Public Library has been selected as the 2009 recipient of the Virginia Library Association's (VLA's) George Mason Award, VLA's highest honor, for its distinguished advocacy of libraries and in specific recognition of its 2008 All Henrico Reads event featuring author Julia Alvarez and held in partnership with Henrico County Public Schools. Over 1,000 members of the community attended this event, which helped educate the Henrico community about the immigration experiences of local Hispanic families and served as a catalyst for communicating to these families that Henrico's public libraries and schools are eager to help them assimilate into the American way of life. The George Mason Award is presented when merited to a library or individual that has contributed to the promotion and development of improved public understanding of library and information services. The award was accepted on October 30, 2009 during VLA's Annual Conference. Mr. Hazelett congratulated the following staff members from the Public Library: Sallie Morris, Collection Development Librarian and former Young Adult and Adult Services Coordinator; Christine Campbell, Assistant Director; and Jerry McKenna, Director.
Beth Tetrault, a Program
Managerfor Henrico Area Mental Health and Retardation Services and the County's local government representative on the Chickahominy Disability Services Board, has won the Corbett Reedy Award for Excellence from the Virginia Rehabilitation Association (VRA). VRA is a chapter of the National Rehabilitation Association, the nation's oldest and largest advocacy organization for persons with disabilities. Created in 1985 to honor former VRA service provider Corbett Reedy, the award is presented to a resident who has creatively pursued excellence in the field of rehabilitation and in serving persons with disabilities. Mr. Hazelett congratulated Ms. Tetrault for her efforts. Virginia
Mr. Hazelett recognized the County government Christmas Mother Program Chair, Lisa H. Orlosky of the Department of Information Technology, and her Co-Chair, Juliana L. Haalboom of the Division of Recreation and Parks. With the assistance of Ms. Haalboom, Mrs. Orlosky presented a ceremonial check in the amount of $6,000 to the 2009 Henrico Christmas Mother, Robin D. Smith. Mrs. Smith announced that the Henrico Christmas Mother program has received a record number of applications for assistance (2,100) and is serving a record number of families (2,000) and individuals (6,100), including 3,500 children and 700 senior citizens or disabled adults. About 40 percent of this year's applicants are requesting help for the first time. Mrs. Smith noted that the warehouse offered by the County for the use of program volunteers is quickly filling up with donated toys, books, clothing, bicycles, and food. She thanked the Henrico community and County employees for generosity and expressed gratitude to Ms. Haalboom and Mrs. Oslosky for their leadership. Mr. Hazelett voiced pride in the County's participation in the Christmas Mother program and thanked Mrs. Smith for her efforts.
BOARD OF SUPERVISORS' COMMENTS
Mr. Glover requested an ordinance that would allow an American flag to be flown on a pole in any neighborhood in the County. He expressed concerns that the County is being looked at nationally as the culprit in a local private property rights issue between an elderly Medal of Honor recipient and a neighborhood association. Mr. Kaechele commented that this situation is not well understood by the media and suggested that staff review the County's legal authority to adopt the ordinance Mr. Glover suggested.
Mr. Kaechele announced that the Board enjoyed a nice Christmas meal in the County's cafeteria with the staff and Christmas Mother before the meeting. He noted that it has been a difficult and challenging year for the County but there is still much for which to be thankful. Mr. Kaechele expressed thanks to everyone who was participating in this meeting and wished them and their families a Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season.
