PUBLIC COMMENT

No one appeared before Council during public comment time.

PUBLIC WORKS REPORT

Public Works Director Mike Crews said that Mike Davidson of Campbell County Economic Development wanted him to present a proposal requesting a 50 x 50 space at the ballpark to allow Mid-Atlantic Broadband to place a building there.  The building is going to be 10’ x 20’ with a small generator.  This will supply broadband to the library, elementary school, the industrial park, and the Town office.  This will not require any land easements because they will run along VDOT’s right of way and then run along existing telephone poles.  Mr. Don Search from Mid-Atlantic Broadband will be at the July Council meeting to address questions.

 

Mr. Crews said that he had several change orders pertaining to the water treatment plant project and the waterline distribution project.  He said what he would like to do is get Council approval on all change orders as long as the contingencies are there from each of the funding agencies.  He said that the Council would be updated, but he would not have to wait a month for approval on a change order.  He said he had a change order for the waterline distribution project for $14,492 to run water line on Lusardi Drive down to Super 10 where there used to be a fire hydrant.  The other change order for $5,000 is for the water tank on Hunter Road for the additional repairs that had to be done due to 7 additional leaks that were found in the water tower.  Another change order that needs to be done is for the water treatment plant for another turbine pump that sends the water up the hill to the water tank.  There was money in the project to replace one turbine pump, but since both are critical to pump the water up the hill, Mr. Crews said that he wanted the two pumps to be identical, so that changing or replacing parts would be easier.  The cost of that change order is going to be $23,705.

 

Upon motion by Tracy Meisenbach, seconded by James Nowlin, and unanimously carried, the Council voted to authorize change orders for the waterline and water treatment plant projects as they become necessary as long as they are approved by all parties involved and are covered under the contingency funds that are available.  The motion further stated that Mayor Campbell could sign the change orders on behalf of the Town.

 

 

CITIZEN REQUEST TO SHOOT GROUNDHOGS THAT ARE DESTROYING HIS GARDEN

 

A citizen has requested to be able to shoot some groundhogs that are destroying his garden.  He says he will be using a 22 short pistol, and there should be no danger to citizens.  After some discussion, Councilperson Jean suggested that the game warden be contacted to shoot the groundhogs under the supervision of the game warden.  Mr. Crews reminded the Council that before considering this, they should think about the incident that happened on Booker Road a few years ago concerning firearms.  A motion was made by Robert Jean to allow the property owner to shoot the groundhogs under supervision of the game warden.  The motion received no second, so therefore, it died.  The motion was tabled until further research could be done on the issue.

 

 

APPROVAL/DISAPPROVAL OF THE 2010/2011 GENERAL FUND BUDGET AS PRESENTED AND ADVERTISED

After proper advertisement and having been presented for public hearing on May 11, 2010, Council Member Kenneth Jennings made a motion to approve the General Fund Budget for FY 2010/2011.  The motion received a second from Council Member James Nowlin and was unanimously carried.  Councilperson Meisenbach voted in favor of the budget but wanted it noted that she did not feel the full Council put in enough work on the budget together.

APPROVAL/DISAPPROVAL OF THE 2010/2011 WATER FUND BUDGET AS PRESENTED AND ADVERTISED

Councilperson Meisenbach asked about the W&S Contingency Fund amount of $100,023.47 in the water fund revenue.  Mr. Crews explained that this was being pulled from the USDA reserve for FY11 to balance the budget.  This was being done for this year because 2011 will be the year that the Town will have to close on the USDA water project, and the Town will incur some extra expenses during that closing period.

 

After proper advertisement and having been presented for public hearing on May 11, 2010, Council Member Robert Jean made a motion to approve the General Fund Budget for FY 2010/2011.  The motion received a second from Council Member Kenneth Jennings and was unanimously carried.

After proper advertisement and having been presented for public hearing on May 11, 2010, Council Member James Nowlin made a motion to approve the Personal Property Tax Relief Act for 2010 as follows:

 

In accordance with the requirements set forth in VA. CODE ANN. $58.1-3524 C.2. as amended by Chapter 1 of the Acts of Assembly (2004 Special Session I) and as set forth in item 503.E. (Personal Property Tax Relief Program) of Chapter 951 of the 2005 Acts of Assembly, any qualifying vehicle sitused within the Town of Brookneal commencing January 1, 2010, shall receive personal property tax relief in the following manner:

  • Personal use vehicles with assessed value of $500 or less will be eligible for 100% tax relief;
  • Personal use vehicles with assessed value of $501 to $10,000 will be eligible for 67% tax relief;
  • Personal use vehicles with assessed value of $10,001 or more shall receive only 67% tax relief on the first $10,000 in assessed value;
  • All other vehicles which do not meet the definition of "qualifying" (such as business use vehicles, farm use vehicles, motor homes, etc.) will not be eligible for any form of tax relief under this program;

The motion received a second from Robert Jean.  With all in favor, the motion carried.

ITEMS FROM TOWN COUNCIL

Councilperson Jean commented on some issues he has observed at the ball park.  He said there are gates that are falling down, a metal box that was pushed over about two years ago that needs to be either fixed or moved, and problems with the playground equipment.  Mr. Crews said that the Town needed access to a bucket truck to fix some of the problems.  He said that to replace the metal box would be about $10,000, and he said that the box is not hooked to any power.  Mayor Campbell said that some of the maintenance men need to take a look at the wall at the tennis court that is falling down.  She also mentioned that the slide may need to be taken down.  Mr. Jean said that American Plastics had said they could fix the slide.
