FY 2004 Capital Improvements Program Revision - Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association

Topic Description:

For the past several years, the Fauquier County Fire and Rescue Association has been developing a Capital Improvements Program (CIP). The Association has now competed the first phase of this effort with a CIP plan for FY 2004.  At its August and October meetings the Association reviewed the recommendations of its CIP Committee. The following FY 2004 projects and amounts were approved by the Association for forwarding to the Board of Supervisors for its consideration:  

  1. $2,000,000    Warrenton Volunteer Fire Company, Renovation. Primarily upgrade sleeping and administrative areas.  Funded by borrowing.
  2. $25,000 Remington Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company, Roof Replacement.  Funded by cash.
  3. $320,000 Remington Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company, Land Purchase. Placed as proffer action.  

Funding would be supported entirely from the Fire and Rescue Levy. With the addition of the Fire and Rescue Associationís FY 2003 fund balance, approximately $1.2 million in cash will be available for CIP projects.  In addition, the Association has budgeted funding which would support approximately $4 million in borrowing.
