Topic: 

A Resolution to Authorize a Transfer of Funds from the Capital Fund Reserve Account

Topic Description:

The Facilities Committee has been reviewing a number of smaller improvement projects that provide  needed improvements.  Previously the Board of Supervisors has authorized the use of reserve funds for the expansion of the animal shelter, $400,000, and for matching funds to replace the Emergency 911 phone system, $145,000.  The Committee recommends that the following additional projects be authorized:

Emergency Operations Center - $80,000

This project will provide for the installation of a generator at the Emergency Operations center which is located at the Warrenton Volunteer Fire Company EMS, Station 1, on Hospital Drive.  Funds cover the acquisition and installation of a generator, minor site work, electrical connections, engineering services, and a contingency.

Marshall Community Center – ADA Access and Drainage Improvements - $43,700

In the process of evaluating the use of the basement in the community center annex for use in conjunction with the Computer Clubhouse program, it was determined that existing drainage and water infiltration issues need to be addressed.  Funds will provide for drainage improvements, ADA access improvements, foundation water proofing and a contingency.  A future improvement phase will address related issues at the main building.

In addition to these projects:

Cost estimates are being prepared to improve the evidence storage facility, magistrate’s area and record storage at the Sheriff’s Office.

 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:
