A Resolution to Authorize a Compensation Adjustment for Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority Board Members

Topic Description:

The State Code establishes procedures for determining the compensation of Board members of water and sanitation authorities.  The base level of WSA Board member compensation currently is at the rate established in March 1991.  The responsibilities of the WSA have expanded considerably over the past twelve (12) years.  In recognition of these changes and the impact of inflation, it is proposed that the current compensation be doubled.  

It is proposed that the following changes be made effective January 1, 2004 :




Base compensation for Board Members

$250.00 per month

$ 500.00 per month

Base compensation for Chairman

$ 300.00 per month

$ 600.00 per month

Additional compensation Committee Assignments

$ 50.00 per meeting

$ 100.00 per meeting




Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

The funds for this change will be derived from the WSA budget.
