Mission

The Ad Hoc Committee is requested to identify:

·        Statutory requirements of withdrawing from existing CSBs

·        Statutory requirements for establishing a CSB

·        Administrative requirements of CSBs

·        Service needs of Fauquier County citizens

·        Services to County citizens currently provided by Rappahannock-Rapidan Community Services Board (RRCSB)

·        Impact on services of the Area Agency on Aging, which are currently provided by the RRCSB

·        Financial impact of establishing a CSB

·        Impact on State funding levels

The Ad Hoc Committee is asked to make recommendations on the following issues:

·        With current projected population growth and demographic changes, would a single jurisdiction CSB better position Fauquier County to meet future service demands?

·        Can Fauquier County provide more efficient and effective CSB services to its citizens than currently provided?

·        Would Fauquier County benefit from a more direct managerial control over the services and programs serving its citizens?

·        Is it economically feasible for Fauquier County to establish a single jurisdiction CSB?
