A Resolution to Authorize the Fauquier County Administrator to Execute a Capital Expansion Payment Agreement and An Amended and Restated Regional Jail Agreement with the Clarke-Fauquier-Frederick-Winchester Adult Detention Center


Topic Description: 

Due to overcrowding and safety concerns, the Regional Jail (with the City of Winchester acting as its fiscal agent) has entered into a contract with Howard Shockey and Sons, Inc. to expand the facility.  On June 21, 2004, this contract was approved by resolution of the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors.  In order to effectuate the jail expansion, it is necessary for the participating jurisdictions to amend the original Regional Jail Agreement to provide for capital debt service and to execute a Capital Expansion Payment Agreement.  One-half (50%) of the costs of construction are anticipated to be paid by the State.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

The estimated annual cost to Fauquier County, if this project is completed, would be approximately $150,000 for 20 years beginning in FY 2006. This amount does not reflect the State’s commitment to reimburse 50% of the costs. If this occurs, Fauquier County’s cost would be $75,000.
