YOURS. >> THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH FOR QUITE AN HONOR. I AM EXCITED TO JOIN YOU GUYS TONIGHT. IT WAS MY FRESHMAN YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL I WOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT 13 YEARS OLD WHERE I FIRST LEARNED OF JOURNALISM. I WAS A WRITER FOR THE SCHOOL NEWSPAPER. UP UNTIL THAT POINT I THOUGHT I WANTED TO BE AN ENGLISH TEACHER BECAUSE I KNEW I LIKED TO WRITE WHAT ELSE DO YOU DO BUT TEACH ENGLISH.

AND LEARN PRETTY QUICKLY ABOUT THE JOY OF JOURNALISM, THE JOY OF TELLING STORIES, THE RESPONSIBILITY OF TELLING STORIES AND THAT WAS SOMETHING I WAS ABLE TO NURTURE AND CULTIVATE THROUGH MY ENTIRE FOUR YEARS AT HENRICO HIGH SCHOOL. WERE BY THE TIME I GRADUATED I WAS THE EDITOR OF THE PAPER. REALLY HONORED TO JOIN YOU GUYS. IT ALL GOT ITS START BACK THEN.

I KNOW SOME OF THE NAMES AND FACES ON THE AGENDA TONIGHT OUR NAMES AND FACES I REMEMBER WAY BACK WHEN.

I REMEMBER SITTING IN FOR A MEETING LIKE THIS ONE YOU GUYS DID A PROGRAM WHERE WE WERE SHADOWING MEMBERS OF YOUR LEADERSHIP. AND I GOT TO BE THE CHAIR.

I WAS PROBABLY IN THE NINTH OR 10TH GRADE SITTING AROUND THAT SAME ROUNDTABLE. REALLY PLEASED TO BE HERE, REALLY EXCITED, REALLY HONORED AND THANKFUL FOR THE

AND THEN WHEN THE MANAGER MENTIONED ATKINS AS YOUR FAMILY NAME, BUT WE WERE RELATED BECAUSE I AM IN A T ATKINS AND YOUR MOM IS IN A.D. ATKINS. SHE PROBABLY KNOWS THE STORY ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO.

WHO KNOWS. MAYBE GENERATIONS AGO WE WERE RELATED BEFORE OUR FAMILY MEMBERS DECIDED TO TAKE ON TWO NAMES. ANYWAY, I'M SO PLEASED TO KNOW YOU'RE FROM IN REIKO COUNTY. I HOLD MY CHEST OF HIGH WHEN I

MR. CHAIRMAN, I DO HAVE MY SECOND COMMENT INVOLVES ALL OF THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS THAT YOU SEE IN THEBOARD ROOM THIS EVENING . WE ARE PLEASED TO HAVE WITH US THIS EVENING THE 2020 CHRISTMAS MOTHER, WHO IS JEAN HAYES.

MS. HAYES HAS VOLUNTEERED WITH THE CHRISTMAS SINCE 2012 AND REPRESENTS THE TUCKAHOE DISTRICT.

SHE MOVED HERE IN 1981 WORKING AT RICHMOND MEMORIAL HOSPITAL BEFORE BECOMING THE SCHOOL NURSE FOR 23 YEARS.HE IS THE PROUD MOTHER OF THREE CHILDREN WHO GRADUATED FROM FREEMAN HIGH SCHOOL AND EVEN PROUD GRANDMOTHER OF FOUR.

PLEASE JOIN ME IN WELCOMING OUR 2020 CHRISTMAS MOTHER, MS. JEAN HAYES. HE WILL SHARE A FEW WORDS AND AN UPDATE ON THE CHRISTMAS PROGRAM.

I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO RECOGNIZE OUR GENERAL GOVERNMENT CHRISTMAS MOTHER, MS. TONYA HARDING, WHO WILL BE MAKING A BRIEF PRESENTATION TO READ EVEN THOUGH WE DIDN'T HAVE IT IN THE MIDDLE OF COVID, BOTH OF YOU HAVE DONE A HERCULEAN JOB THIS YEAR. SO THANK YOU BOTH.

MR. CHAIRMAN?

>> HI, I AM JEAN HAYES AND AN HONOR TO BE THE 2021 HENRICO CHRISTMAS MOTHER. THIS YEAR WAS TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM ANYTHING WE HAVE EXPERIENCED.

WE DID NO SHOPPING FOR TOYS, WE DID NOSHOPPING FOR CLOTHING , BUT WE DID HONOR OUR COMMUNITY, THOSE IN NEED.

IT WAS A VERY DIFFICULT THING TO FIGURE OUT THE MONEY, BUT WE GAVE GIFT CARDS TO FOOD LION WALMART TO ALL OUR PARTICIPANTS. AND PARTICIPANTS ARE PEOPLE WHO QUALIFIED LAST YEAR AND WERE STILL RECEIVING SNACKS BUT THEN WE GOT LIQUIDATIONS IN THE GUIDANCE COUNSELORS AND SOCIAL SERVICES. SO OUR NUMBERS GREW BY ABOUT 19 PERCENT. IT WAS A BIG JOB.

WE HAVE DISTRIBUTED OUR GIFT CARDS AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL MAKE CHRISTMAS BETTER FOR ALL OF OUR FAMILIES.

[00:15:03]

>> AS THE MAYOR JUST SAID, WE DO NOT HAVE A CAMPAIGN THIS YEAR. NORMALLY OUR EMPLOYEES WOULD'VE DONE BAKE SALES, THE MANAGER AND I WOULD'VE HAD OUR DUNKING BOOTH. WE HOPE TO BRING THAT BACK NEXT YEAR. WE WOULD'VE HAD HUGE FUNDRAISERS AND ALL OUR EMPLOYEES WOULD'VE GONE OUT OF THE RAKE OF THE BOARD ROOM WOULD'VEBEEN FILLED WITH TOYS AND WE WOULD HAVE DONE A HUGE CAMPAIGN.

WOULD'VE PRESENTED A BIG CHECK TO YOU TONIGHT.

THIS YEAR WE DID A VIDEO AT THE WAREHOUSE , WE PUT THE VIDEO OUT TO OUR EMPLOYEES AND SAID ALL WECOULD DO WITH MONETARY DONATIONS . IN OUR EMPLOYEES STEPPED UP.

I WAS SUPER SURPRISED AND WANT TO THANK THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE, ALISHA GREGORY, YOUR STAFF IS AMAZING.

SO TONIGHT I AM HAPPY TO GIVE YOU TWO CHECKS THE AMOUNT OF $10,944 AND $0.52.

>> THAT IS SOLELY FROM OWL OUR EMPLOYEES WHO EITHER SENT ME CHECKS, DROP THEM OFF OR MAIL THEM BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT TO YOU, MOST OF OUR EMPLOYEES ARE TELEWORKING.

BUT WHEN THE VIDEO WENTOUT , ALL OUR EMPLOYEES WERE EMAILING ME. THEY WANTED TO DO SOMETHING BECAUSE WE DID NOT HAVE AN OFFICIAL CAMPAIGN.

BUT EVERYONE WANTED TO DO SOMETHING.

THESHARES OFFICE ALONE DID $6900 .

SO THANK YOU. EVERYONE JUST EMAILED.

THEY SENT ME CHECKS. AND SO I REALLY HOPE THAT WE WILL WORK. THANK YOU TO ALL COUNTY EMPLOYEES, EVERYONE WHO STEPPED UP TO THE PLATE THIS YEAR.

AND HOPEFULLY NEXT TO RECONVENE BACK INTHE WAREHOUSE SHOPPING AND DOING WHAT WE NORMALLY DO . AND SO WE LOVE YOU, WE THANK YOU AND WE HOPE THAT HELPS.

>> THIS IS AMAZING AND I WANT TO THANK YOU ALL ON BEHALF OF EVERYONE WHO WORKS WITH THE CHRISTMAS MOTHER.

THIS WILL GO A LONG WAY. BECAUSE WE TRULY SPENT A LOT OF MONEY THIS YEAR. THANK YOU.

>> MR. CHAIRMAN, MY FINAL UPDATE.

DOCTOR MELISSA OF ARRAY FROM OUR HEALTH DEPARTMENT IS GOING TO GIVE YOU SOME INFORMATION. I KNOW YOU ARE STARTING TO GET QUESTIONS. DOCTOR, THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US REMOTELY. I KNOW YOU ARE STARTING TO GET QUESTIONS ABOUT VACCINATION DISTRIBUTION.

SO TONY MCDOWELL SENT YOU AN EMAIL WITH THE NORMAL COVID UPDATE THAT YOU WOULD GET EARLIER.

IN PLACE OF THIS, I HAVE ASKED MELISSA TO GIVE US AS MUCH INFORMATION AS SHE HAS AT THE MOMENT DOOR AND AND DOCTOR, AS HE BEGAN I SIMPLY WANT TO ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU AND HEALTH DEPARTMENT FOR THE HERCULEAN EFFORT YOU CONTINUE TO PUT

FORTH. >> THANK YOU.

MR. MANAGER, I REALLY APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE THE BOARD A BRIEF UPDATE ON COVID-19 VACCINES IN HENRICO . I DO HAVE SLIDES IF THOSE ARE AVAILABLE. IN EITHER CASE TAUREAN THEY DON'T NEED TO BE UP AS I AM TALKING.

YOU ARE ALL AWARE THE FIRST COVID-19 VACCINE IN THE US WAS APPROVED FOR EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZATION BY THE FDA THIS LAST FRIDAY. WE SAW THE FIRST AMERICAN RECEIVE A COVID-19 VACCINE OUTSIDE A CLINICAL TRIAL JUST THIS WEEK. SO YOU UNDERSTAND WHERE WE ARE IN HENRICO , HOSPITALS IN VIRGINIA HAVE BEGUN TO RECEIVE VACCINES AND WE ANTICIPATE VACCINATION OF THEIR STAFF, IF NOT TODAY, STARTING THIS WEEK AND CONTINUING OVER THE FOLLOWING WEEKS. MORE PFIZER VACCINE WILL BE SHIPPED AND DISTRIBUTED OVER THE WEEKS THAT FOLLOWED.

THERE IS A SECOND VACCINE CALLED THE MENTOR IN A VACCINE THAT IS A SIMILAR VACCINE THAT IS ALSO CURRENTLY SEEKING AUTHORIZATION FROM FDA AND WE WILL LIKELY KNOW BY THE END OF THIS WEEK OR OVER THE WEEKEND TO EARLY NEXT WEEK IF NOT HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED FOR EMERGENCY USE.

THAT IS AUTHORIZED, WE WILL SEE BOTH VACCINES FOR THIS IS WHAT WE ANTICIPATE HAPPENING. WE WILL SEE BOTH VACCINES BEING DELIVERED TO VIRGINIA TO THE TUNE OF ABOUT 480,000 VACCINES TO VIRGINIA OVER THE COURSE OF THIS MONTH.

THESE FIRST WAVES OF VACCINES WILL BE PRIORITIZED FOR OUR HEALTHCARE WORKERSAND OUR LONG-TERM CARE FACILITY RESIDENTS AND STAFF . IS OVER INDIVIDUALS OF THE HIGHEST RISK FOR INFECTION, GIVEN THEIR EXPOSURES.

AND THE INDIVIDUALS KEEPING OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM UP AND RUNNING. AND THEN THOSE IN OUR LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES, THE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE AT HIGH

[00:20:01]

RISK FOR INFECTION AND ALSO AT THE MOST RISK FOR POOR OUTCOMES FROM INFECTION. SO THAT IS WHY WHEN THE CDC ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON IMMUNIZATION PRACTICES LOOKED AT WHO SHOULD GET VACCINE FIRST, THOSE WERE THE FIRST TWO CATEGORIES. THIS HAS REALLY BEEN A MAJOR COLLABORATIVE EFFORT FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO THE STATE HEALTH DEPARTMENT TO THE LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT TO OUR COUNTY PARTNERS AS WE TRY TO PUT ALL THESE THINGS TOGETHER AND MAKE SURE THE MINUTE THEY GOT AUTHORIZED THAT WE WERE ABLE TO GET A VACCINE UP AND RUNNING AND GOING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE GIVEN THE IMPORTANCE AND SEVERITY OF THE PANDEMIC RIGHT NOW.SO OVER THE NEXT WEEKS TO MONTHS WE ANTICIPATE WORKING WITH COUNTY AND COMMUNITY PARTNERS TO ANSWER FOLKS QUESTIONS IN THE COMMUNITY. FOLKS QUESTIONS IN THE COMMUNITY AND ADDRESS ANY CONCERNS THEY HAVE.E WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SURE FOLKS UNDERSTAND HOW THE VACCINES WORK, UNDERSTAND THERE WERE NOT ANY SHORTCUTS TAKEN, UNDERSTAND ãANSWER ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS THEY MAY HAVE SO THAT THEY FEEL COMFORTABLE IN DECIDING WHETHER OR NOT TO GET AVACCINE. UPTAKE OF THIS VACCINE IS THE SAFEST WAY FOR US TO BE ABLE TO GET BACK TO BEING ABLE TOGETHER FOR THE HOLIDAYS, TO BE WITH OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES.

TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF ã BACK ONE.

TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF INFORMATION, THESE VACCINES ARE GOING TO BE HOW WE GET BACK TO NORMAL AGAIN.

BUT TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT YOU ARE GETTING.

THEY HAVE THESE TWO VACCINES. EFFICACY OF BOTH OF THESE VACCINES HAVE BEEN 94 TO 95 PERCENT FOR TO GIVE YOU A SAMPLING FOR THE PFIZER VACCINE WITH A 95 PERCENT EFFICACY RATE, THAT MEANS IN THE TRIAL OF 44,000 INDIVIDUALS, THEY HAD 170 COVID INFECTIONS AND 162 OF THEM WERE UNVACCINATED INDIVIDUALS COMPARED TO EIGHT. FAR MORE INDIVIDUALS ARE INFECTED. IT SHOWS A GREAT DEAL OF OF THE GASSY IN TERMS OF THIS VACCINE. SIMILARLY, THE OTHER VACCINE SHOWED A 94 PERCENT EFFICACY RATE.

MEANING THAT FARMER INDIVIDUALS NOT VACCINATED OR DID NOT RECEIVE A VACCINE BECAME INFECTED COMPAREDTO THOSE WHO DID . THESE NUMBERS ARE FAR BETTER THAN WE WOULD'VE EXPECTED WHEN WE FIRST HEARD ABOUT VACCINE DEVELOPMENT IN JANUARY. WE DREAMED ABOUT 70 AND THEN WE HEARD 90S AND THIS IS GREATER IN THE HEALTHCARE FIELD ANTICIPATED. SO THIS IS REALLY GOOD NEWS.

ON TOP OF THAT, THIS IS ALSO A SAFE WITH HER BUT A LOT OF SAFETY STEPS TAKEN ALONG THE WAY AND IF YOU LIKE IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOUR CONSTITUENTS TO KNOW THAT.

THERE WERE NO, THE PROCESS STEPS, THE STEPS ALONG THE PROCESS WERE ALL THE SAME AS IT WOULD BE NORMALLY.

PIT WAS JUST INVESTMENT OF FUNDING TO ALLOW FOR MANY MANUFACTURING TO BE RAMPED UP, WHICH WOULD NOT NORMALLY HAPPEN. THAT IS A LOT OF RISK FOR THE PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY. INVOLVED FOR THEM TO SHAVE OFF TIME OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE AND THE MAC SURE MANUFACTURING IF A STRUCTURE BUILDING AND SO THAT IT WOULD BE POISED AND READY TO DELIVER VACCINE WHEN ALL THE SAFETY CHECKS IN THE EFFICACY CHECKS PASSED THROUGH PARIS AND THESE TWO VACCINES, THE PFIZER IN THE MENTOR NEW VACCINE, BETWEEN THEM INVOLVED 75,000 PARTICIPANTS. I THINK IT WAS 74,000 PARTICIPANTS. AND TO DATE, NEITHER VACCINE HAS ANY SERIOUS SAFETY CONCERNS.

TO WHAT WE ARE LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW IS A VERY EFFICACIOUS ãAS FAR AS ALL OF FDA AND CDC FOLKS WHO DO THIS ON A DAILY BASIS, ALTHOUGH TESTING EVALUATIONS HAVE SHOWN A SAFE VACCINE AS WELL IMPORTANT AND SO WE LOOK TO THIS TO HELP US OVER THE COURSE OF THE NEXT WEEKS TO MONTHS ABLE TO VACCINATE OUR POPULATION AND BE ABLE TO GET BACK TO NORMAL.

I KNOW I DON'T HAVEA LOT OF TIME BUT I WANT TO ENTERTAIN ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE ON THAT .

>> MR. CHAIRMAN?>> I HAVE A QUESTION.

IF I COULD. I'VE GOTTEN THIS QUESTION FROM SEVERAL PEOPLE. IN 1976 WE HAD THE SWINE FLU VACCINATION PROGRAM WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND THERE

[00:25:01]

WERE SOME REACTIONS TO THE SHO .

JUST INTERESTED TO FIND OUT HOW THAT WOULD BE HANDLED NOW.

I KNOW THERE WAS SOME UNFORTUNATE ãSOME FOLKS GOT DESMARAIS. AND IT IS A LONG TIME SINCE 1976. SPOKE IT IS INTERESTING BECAUSE AS A HISTORICAL CONTEXT, THE SWINE FLU VACCINE ACTUALLY CAME BACK AGAIN FROM THOSE QUESTIONS COME BACK FOR H1 AND ONE, WHICH WAS ALSO A SIMILARLY RELATED FLU VACCINE.

AND AT THAT POINT WE DID RAMP UP ONGOING MONITORING SPECIFICALLY. WE DON'T NEED TO DO THAT SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS VACCINE BECAUSE IT IS NOT RELATED IN THE SAME WAY. DOESN'T HAVE THE SAME SORTS OF CONCERNS, HOWEVER, THERE ARE MULTIPLE SAFETY NET DUALISMS IN PLACE. NOT ONLY PRE-VACCINE AUTHORIZATION, BUT HOST. SO ALL THE VACCINE STEPS IN THE CLINICAL TRIALS WERE LOOKING AT VACCINE SAFETY AND THERE IS AN INDEPENDENT MONITORING BOARD THAT LOOKS OUT FOR SERIOUS ADVERSE EVENTS. AND THEN AFTER THE AUTHORIZATION THERE IS WHAT IS CALLED A VACCINE ADVERSE EVENT SYSTEM AND THAT IS A SYSTEM WITH CDC AND FDA THAT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG TIME NOW THAT LOOKS FOR ADVERSE EVENTS HE WOULD BE REPORTED BY MEDICAL PROVIDERS.

BUT FOR THIS VACCINE IN PARTICULAR FOR COVID-19 VACCINES, THE CDC IS OFFERING A MORE ACTIVE MONITORING SYSTEM CALLED BE SAFE, WHICH WILL BE ENOUGH THAT ANYBODY WHO GETS THE VACCINE WILL BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD TO BE ABLE TO PROACTIVELY ãNOT PROACTIVELY. MORE ACTIVELY BE ABLE TO BE SO WE CAN ASCERTAIN ON A REGULAR BASIS IF ANY SYMPTOMS ARE OCCURRING. AND THIS MONITORING WILL OCCUR FROM THE DAY OF AUTHORIZATION ONWARD TO MAKE SURE IS THERE ANY SIGNS OF ADVERSE EVENTS, EVEN THOUGH WE ARE NOT ANTICIPATING BASED ON THE CLINICAL STUDIES THAT ARE QUITE LARGE, THEY WOULD FLAG PRETTY EARLY.

>> MR. CHAIRMAN, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FROM THE BOARD?

>>THOMAS M. BRANIN: ANYONE? OKAY.

DOCTOR, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE UPDATE.

WE APPRECIATE IT. I KNOW EVERYONE IN THE COUNTY APPRECIATES THE INFORMATION AND WE LOOK FORWARD IN TO GETTING

RID OF THE COVID MONSTER. >> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR

TIME.>> I HAVE NO OTHER COMMENTS THIS EVENING.

>>THOMAS M. BRANIN: OKAY. AT THIS POINT, ARE THERE ANY COMMENTS FROM OTHER BOARD MEMBERS?

ONE? >> MR. CHAIRMAN, IF I MAY.

TOMORROW NIGHT I WANT TO BRING FOLKS ATTENTION TO THE THIRD OF THREE. THIS FALL I HAVE BEEN HOLDING VIRTUAL MEETINGS WITH OUR CONSTITUENTS THROUGH THE THIRD OF THREE OAKLAND BEATS WILL BE TOMORROW AT 6:00.

WE WILL BE JOINED BY ANTHONY, THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF OUR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY HERE TO DISCUSS A NEW GREEN CITY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PROPOSAL AND WE WILL BE JOINED

FOR THE THIRD OF THREE AND FINAL FOR THIS FALL VIRTUAL MEETING. THANK YOU, SIR.

>>THOMAS M. BRANIN: THANK YOU, MR. SCHMITT.

ANYONE ELSE? >> I HAD TO.

FIRST, THE MANAGER SENT US A LETTER DATED DECEMBER 10.

I DON'T KNOW IF ANYONE HERE IS ABLE TO SPEAK TO IT, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE RESIDENTS.

RESIDENTS, THEY HAVE BEEN AWARDED SOME MONEY.HAT IS PWHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE. 1.8 MILLION TO ASSIST.

LET ME READ THIS PARAGRAPH THROUGH DECEMBER 7 WE WERE NOTIFIED BY THE STATES DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT THAT WE HAVE BEEN AWARDED NEARLY 1.8 MILLION TO ASSIST WITH RELIEF OR PAST-DUE UTILITY ACCOUNTS.

THE FUNDING REQUIRES THOSE CUSTOMERS POSITIVELY AFFIRMED IN NEED OF ASSISTANCE. AND SO WE ARE GOING TO BE DOING AN OUTREACH CAMPAIGN. AND THE RELIEF IS OR PAST-DUE ACCOUNTS FROM MARCH 1 THROUGH DECEMBER 30 .

ANYWAY, I THOUGHT THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS WORTH NOTING

[00:30:06]

TO THE COMMUNITY. IF YOU ARE A CITIZEN WITH A PAST DUE UTILITY ACCOUNT, REACH OUT TO US HERE.

WHAT IS THE GENERAL NUMBER? 501-4000.

DOES THAT SOUND RIGHT? >> IT DOES.> UTILITY DIRECT

LINE IS 501-4275. >> 501-4275.

AND I WILL BE PUTTING THAT OUT. AND I AM CERTAIN OUR PUBLIC RELATIONS AND MEDIA SERVICES TEAM IS WORKING ON SOMETHING FOR PUTTING IT OUT SOON. THAT WAS THE FIRST THING.

SECOND THING, MR. CHAIR. I AM ASKING THE BOARD CONSENT TO ADD AN ITEM TO TONIGHT AGENDA.

THIS ITEM IS A RESOLUTION ACKNOWLEDGING THE NEED AND DESIRABILITY OF CONTINUED CONSULTATION REGARDING THE RECENT GENERAL ASSEMBLY LEGISLATION REGARDING LAW ENFORCEMENT, CIVILIAN OVERSIGH BOARDS .

AND TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT FOR PARTICIPATING IN THE FIRE DEPARTMENT PARTICIPATED, OR LIBRARIES PARTICIPATED. AND PARKS IN THE AD UNBELIEVABLE FLOAT AND IT WAS TRULY AMAZING HOW IT LIT UP CHILDREN'S FACES AS THIS SMALL PARADE CAME THROUGH.

[8. APPOINTMENT ]

[8a. 301-20 Resolution - Appointment of Member to Board of Directors - Economic Development Authority. ]

CONCURRENCE WE WOULD MOVE INTO THE PUBLIC HEARING ITEM.

THE ONLY ITEM ON TONIGHT AGENDA, WHICH IS A PUBLIC HEARING IS AGENDA ITEM 302 ã20 .

AND THIS IS FOR AN AMENDMENT TO THE FISCAL YEAR 2021 FISCAL PLAN FOR DECEMBER 2020. THIS IS AN UNUSUAL AMENDMENT, BUT ONE THAT PLACES US IN A GOOD POSITION FOR THE BUDGET GOING FORWARD. MR. CRAWFORD?

>> GOOD EVENING MR. CRAWFORD. >> GOOD EVENING.

[9. PUBLIC HEARING ITEM ]

THESE AMENDMENTS WERE INTRODUCED AT THE DECEMBER 1

[9a. 302-20 Resolution - Amendment to FY 2020-21 Annual Fiscal Plan: December 2020. ]

BOARD MEETING IN THE ADVERTISEMENT OF THIS PUBLIC HEARING FOR THESE AMENDMENTS APPEARED IN THE DECEMBER 8 DISPATCH BOARD IF APPROVE THE FISCAL YEAR 21 BUDGET WOULD BE AMENDED AND THE FUNDS WOULD BE APPROPRIATED FOR EXPENDITURE.

IS A SUMMARY OF THESE AMENDMENTS, THE TOTAL IS $25 MILLION. ON THE REVENUE SIDE, THIS AMENDMENT ADJUSTS A NUMBER OF BUDGETED REVENUE ESTIMATES.

THE FOLLOWING RESOURCES FOR REAL ESTATE TAXES, 5 1/2 MILLION PER THE LOCAL SALES AND USE TAX OF FIVE AND HALF MILLION DOLLARS BANK FRANCHISE TAX BY $7.5 MILLION.

THE REVENUES FROM THE COMPENSATION BOARD FOR CONSTITUTIONAL OFFICERS $750,000.

STATE AID TO LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENTS OTHER KNOWN AS FIVE AND NINE FUNDS BY 500,000 AND THEN STATE AID TO EDUCATION FOR $5,250,000. AS I MENTIONED TWO WEEKS AGO, WE CAN SAFELY SAY THAT BASED ON OUR CURRENT TRENDS THAT EVEN AFTER THESE AMENDMENTS WE WILL HAVE A SURPLUS.

[00:50:08]

WE ESTIMATE THAT TO BE 2 TO 3 TIMES OF THESE AMENDMENTS AND WE WILL HAVE THAT IN JUNE 30TH 2021.

ON THE EXPENSE SIDE, THIS AMENDMENT ALLOWS THE BOARD TO ALLOCATE FUNDING TO AUGMENT THE COMPENSATION FOR ALL OUR EMPLOYEES, INCLUDING POLICE OFFICERS, FIREFIGHTERS, TEACHERS, CHEFS EMPLOYEES. JUST TO NAME A FEW.

THESE ADJUSTMENTS COULD COME IN THE FORM OF ADDRESSING SALARY COMPRESSION, PROVIDING LONGEVITY INCREASES, ADJUSTING THE COUNTY SALARY SCALES AND/OR SALARY INCREASES.

THE TIMING COULD COME IN THE THIRD OR FOURTH QUARTER OF THIS FISCAL YEAR OR IN THE FIRST QUARTER OF DESKS FISCAL YEAR.

OR SOME COMBINATION THERE AND. AND AGAIN, THIS ACTION IS INTENDED TO GIVE THE BOARD THE FLEXIBILITY TO MAINTAIN HENRICO POSITION STP LATER IN THE REGION.

I WILL BE GLAD TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

>> THAT IS EXCELLENT EXPLANATION.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? JUST ONE COMMENT THAT I WILL MAKE. THIS COUNTY WENT INTO THIS YEAR WITH EYES WIDE OPEN. WE CHANGED COMPLETELY HOW WE DO BUDGET BY REVIEWING A MONTHLY AND APPROPRIATING QUARTERLY.

AS IF WE WERE DOING OUR OWN HOME BUDGET.

BECAUSE WE HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS BEFORE US.

AS IT TURNED OUT, I GOT A BIG KICK OUT OF WHEN THE TERM WAS USED UBER CONSERVATIVE BUDGET HAS PAID OFF.

SO WE HAD FROZEN ALL OUR COUNTY EMPLOYEES AND THERE WERE NO RAISES, NO HIRING A. AND THIS ALLOWED US AS WE CAUTIOUSLY GO FORWARD TO LOOK AT COMPRESSION. AND EARMARKING SO THERE IS A DEFINITE THAT IT IS COMING. WOULD YOU AGREE WITH THAT?

>> YES. >> ANYONE ELSE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS BEFORE WE MOVED? THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING. THERE IS NOBODY IN THE ROOM SO I DON'T HAVE TO ASK IF ANYONE IN THE ROOM WOULD LIKE TO MAKE COMMENT OR QUESTION IN REGARDS TO THIS RESOLUTION.

IS THERE ANYONE ON WEBEX THAT WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK TO HER FOR.

>> THERE IS NO ONE ON WEBEX. >> SEEING NONE AND HEARING NON

, I WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION. >> MOVED THE RESOLUTION.

>> SECOND. >> MOTION MADE BY MR. SCHMITT, SECOND BY MR. O'BANNON. THAT RESOLUTION CARRIES.

>> MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, WE DO MOVE INTO PUBLIC COMMENTS.

THERE IS ONE INDIVIDUAL WHO HAS SIGNED UP AND THAT IS DAVID EDWARDS. MR. EDWARDS, ARE YOU ON WEBEX,

>> MS. DAVIS, DO WE HAVE ANYONE ELSE WHO HAS SIGNED UP FOR

PUBLIC COMMENTS ON WEBEX? >> NOT AT THIS TIME.

[10. PUBLIC COMMENTS ]

>> SEEING NO ONE ELSE!R. MANAGER, I WANT TO MAKE A COMMENT. I HAD A RECENT MEETING AND THERE WERE SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO WERE WAITING ONLINE BUT THEY WERE UNABLE TO GET IN THE QUEUE OR WHATEVER.

AND SO I WOULD JUST WANT TO POINT OUT MAYBE WE SHOULD HAVE A BACKUP PHONE NUMBER FOR THEM TO CALL IT FOR WHAT EVER REASON THEY ARE UNABLE TO GET IN TO BE SPEAKER.

>> WE WILL LOOK AT ALL OF THAT. YOU MEAN THIS WAS A COMMUNITY

MEETING. >> A COMMUNITY MEETING WERE SEVERAL PEOPLE ATTEMPTED TO GET INTO THE PROGRAM TO SPEAK.

IT WAS NOT AT A BOARD MEETING, BUT IT CONCERNS ME WE OFTEN HAVE PEOPLE WHO SIGN-UP THAT FOR SOME REASON DON'T SPEAK.

BUT I WORRY WITH THE SITUATION WE ARE IN AND THAT IT IS ONLINE THAT THERE COULD BE AN ALTERNATE PHONE NUMBER WHERE THEY COULD USE IT TO SPEAK POSSIBLY.

[00:55:01]

>> LET US LOOK AT THAT POINT WE MAY USE THE MEETING TOMORROW TO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY HICCUPS AS FAR AS THAT BACK AND FORTH.

>> I WAS CONCERNED AND DID TALK TO A COUPLE PEOPLE EARLIER BUT I THOUGHT I WOULD MENTION IT NOW.

AND IF SOMEONE IS ONLINE WATCHING AND FOR WHATEVER

REASON COULDN'T GET THROUGH. >> LET ME ASK ONE LAST TIME, DO WE HAVE ANYONE ELSE WHO HAS SIGNED UP ON WEBEX?

>> YES. MS. KIM FOR ROR HAS JUST SIGNED

UP. >> OKAY OREGON WE ASK THAT YOU LIMIT YOUR COMMENTS TO FIVE MINUTES AND BEGIN YOUR COMMENTS BY STATING YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS FOR THE RECORD.

THE SECOND CONCERN.

I AM DEFINITELY, AND I DON'T WANT TO BE MISREPRESENTED.

BUT I AM DEFINITELY IN FAVOR OF PROGRESS.

AND DEVELOPMENT. HOWEVER, A CONCERN IS THE CURRENT TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE NOT SUPPORT THAT DEVELOPMENT. AND THE THIRD CONCERN I WOULD LIKE TO RAISE IS IS A GROUP OF CITIZENS I HAVE NOT SEEN A FULL ANALYSIS, AND IMPACT ANALYSIS OF THE PROPOSAL FROM A TRANSPORTATION PUBLIC SAFETY AS WELL AS COMMUNITY IMPACT STUDY THAT HAS BEEN DONE AND PRESENTED TO THOSE OF US IN THE COMMUNITY. ANDWE WOULD LIKE .

OR I WOULD. SPEAKING ON OUR BEHALF.

I ANTICIPATE WE WILL BE USING NEXT YEAR.WILL FORECAST THAT, MAKE THAT PREDICTION GOING FORWARD.

IT INCLUDES THE THIRD QUARTER PERSONNEL SALARIES AND BENEFITS, HEALTHCARE RELATED COSTS.

IN ADDITION IT INCLUDES THE BALANCE OF ANY OPERATING OR CAPITAL DOLLARS THAT REMAIN TO BE APPROPRIATED SO THE DEPARTMENTS HAVE THE TIME NECESSARY TO PROCURE WHATEVER GOODS AND SERVICES THEY WILL BE UTILIZING THE FUNDS ON IT AS A MANAGER NOTES, THIS IS LIKELY A PRACTICE THAT WILL CONTINUE TO THE NEXT FISCAL YEAR. YOU WANT TO COME APPEAR AND EXPLAIN IT, IT SOUNDS PRETTY SIMPLE AND STRAIGHTFORWARD.

>> MR. CHAIRMAN, WE HAVE AN AGENDA ITEM ADDED BY THE BOARD AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MEETING AND THAT IS AGENDA ITEM NUMBER

[11e. 307-20 Resolution - Acceptance of Roads - Three Chopt District. ]

308 ã20 PER THE AGENDA ITEM IS A RESOLUTION.

IT IS TITLED ACKNOWLEDGING THE NEED AND DESIRABILITY FOR CONTINUING CONSULTATION REGARDING RECENT CIVILIAN

OVERSIGHT BODY LEGISLATION. >> ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS?

>> MR. CHAIR? THE REASON I ASKED TO ADD ITEM 308 ã20, I'LL GO BACK. JUNE 2 I SENT AN EMAIL TO MY COLLEAGUES ASKING FOR US TO CONSIDER A COUPLE OF THINGS.

ONE OF THEM BEING A CIVILIAN REVIEW BOARD.

AT THE TIME I THINK I CALLED IT A CITIZEN REVIEW BOARD ARE GENERALLY ASSEMBLY CALLS IT A CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT BOARD.

ALL THESE DIFFERENT NAMES FOR PURPOSE OF THIS CONVERSATION.

I WILL SAY CRV UNTIL I GET TO THE MOTION.

THERE WERE SEVERAL OTHER ITEMS. I WON'T GET INTO THAT.

BACK ON NOVEMBER 9 ASKED AGAIN THAT WE CONSIDER THE CIVILIAN REVIEW BOARD BASED UPON THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY PASSING LEGISLATION, WHICH WAS A COMBINATION OF HOUSE BILL, WHICH WAS HOSPITAL FIVE AND SENATE BILL 5035.

I THINK THE PATRON OF THE HOUSE BILL.

COMMITTEE. AND PAST THE GA AND THE GOVERNOR SIGNED A DEAL. WE STARTED THIS CONVERSATION FOR SAKE OF INFORMATION FOR THOSE WHO MIGHT BE WATCHING AND FOLLOWING ALONG. AFTER ASKING FOR US TO CONSIDER THE CRV, THE BOARD DECIDED TO OPEN THE CONVERSATION UP FOR PUBLIC DISCOURSE. AND WE TOOK THE ENTIRE MONTH OF AUGUST AUGUST RECEIVING EMAILS OF SUPPORT OR NONSUPPORT OR COMMENTS. AND ROUGH ESTIMATES, AND THINK

[11f. 308-20]

WE HAD ABOUT 58 PERCENT IN SUPPORT.

MAY BE FOR D6. A LITTLE OVER 50 PERCENT IN SUPPORT 20 SOMETHING PERCENT THAT WERE NOT IN SUPPORT.

BETWEEN 18 AND 20 PERCENT WHO DID NOT VOTE EITHER WAY.

SOMETIME DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST DURING THE LATTER PART OF THE MONTH, DURING THE LATTER PART OF THE MONTH BECAUSE WE ONLY HAD ONE MEETING DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST.

[01:15:04]

WE HAD A PUBLIC HEARING THAT ALL OF US REMEMBER WAS PRETTY LONG. FOUR AND HALF HOURS, IF I CAN REMEMBER. MANY PERSONS CAME TO SPEAK AND WATCH ONLINE, ETC. SO SINCE THEN I ASKED THAT EITHER DECEMBER 1 OR DECEMBER 15 WE VOTE ON THE LEGISLATION.

IN A CONVERSATION A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO THAT TRIGGERED FURTHER CONVERSATION THAT REALLY JUST HAPPENED BETWEEN HE AND I. AND DAN MADE A GOOD POINT.

THERE WAS A LOT OF QUESTIONS THAT CAME OUT OF THIS LEGISLATION HE REFERS TO WELCOME THE LEGISLATION GIVES PERMISSIVE AUTHORITY TO ESTABLISH OVERSIGHT BOARD, WHICH MEANS IT IS UP TO THE LOCALITY TO DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT THEY'RE GOING TO ESTABLISH THE BOARD.

AND THE LOCALITY HAS TO ESTABLISH WHAT THE BOARD LOOKS LIKE WITHIN THE PARAMETERS THAT HAVE BEEN SET ASIDE IN THE BILL. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT SEEN THE BILL, IT IS BILL 5053 THAT IS THE NUMBER ASSOCIATED WITH IT.AND PRETTY MUCH EIGHT FOCAL PIECES.ND THEN THERE IS AN EXTENSIVE GRIEVANCE PROCESS ALSO IN THE BILL.

ALL THAT SAID, I WON'T GET BACK INTO MY REASON ãMY REASONS FOR SUPPORT OF A CRV. OTHER THAN TO SAY AGAIN I FEEL LIKE IT GIVES CITIZENS THE RECOURSE THAT SOMETIME EXTEND BEYOND DEPARTMENT ITSELF. IF THEY FEEL THERE IS NO RECOURSE WE HAD BEYOND THE PROCESS OR POLICE ACTION OR JUDGMENT. AND I WILL JUST TAKE SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN DRILLED INTO MY HEAD BY MY COLLEAGUE MR. THORTON FROM THE FAIRFIELD DISTRICT.

IT PROVIDES ANOTHER TOOL IN THE TOOLBOX PROGRAM NOW, I REALIZE IN MANY LOCALITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

EVEN A FEW HERE IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA HAVE THEIR OWN DIFFERENT VERSIONS. VIRGINIA BEACH, MINNEAPOLIS, PORTLAND, CHICAGO. BERKELEY, FLINT, ORANGE COUNTY, SAN FRANCISCO. I CAN KEEP ON GOING ON AND ON AND ON. THERE ARE A LOT OF LOCALITIES THAT HAVE CRV THAT OPERATE IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

SOME AS ADVISORY BOARDS, SOME AS INVESTIGATIVE AND ADVISORY.

SOME WHO SERVE FUNCTIONS, ETC. I DO KNOW THAT NOT EVERY CRV IS PERFECT. TO UNDERSTAND THE CRV ARE NOT A FIX ALL FOR EVERYTHING. THEY DO NOT STOP POLICE SHOOTINGS ULTIMATELY. AGAIN, THEY ARE TO ME THE GIVES CITIZENS THE RECOURSE. TO GIVE CITIZENS A PLACE THEY CAN GO. I SAID ALL THAT TO SAY DAN ASKED ME A QUESTION THAT REALLY CHALLENGED ME.

AND THAT IS WHY I AM GOING IN THISDIRECTION TONIGHT .THAT ACTUALLY WANT TO SEE SOMETHING PAST THAT COULD BE HELPFUL FOR THE CITIZENS OF HENRICO? I FEEL LIKE I HAVE ADVOCATED.

I HAVE PUSHED, MAYBE EVEN HEIGHTENED AWARENESS.

AND I CAN GO TO SLEEP TONIGHT KNOWING WE VOTE ON THIS AND IT MAY NOT PASS. OR DO WE REALLY TAKE THE TIME TO DIG INTO THIS FOR OURSELVES SO AT THE END OF THE DAY WHEN WE DO VOTE ON THIS, EVERY MEMBER HAS ALL THE INFORMATION THEY NEED TO PROPERLY MAKE A DECISION ON WHETHER OR NOT YOU THINK THIS IS BEST FOR HENRICO COUNTY.

AND WE NEED TO SHAKE SOMETHING THAT WORKS FOR HENRICO COUNTY.

NOW, A FEW THINGS THAT EITHER HE OR I OR MR. THORTON.

I AM CERTAIN ALL OF US HAVE HAD DIFFERENT CONVERSATIONS.

[01:20:05]

WE TALKED A COUPLE OF TIMES AND WE HAVE ALSO CONSULTED WITH OUR ATTORNEY ON SOME OF THE QUESTIONS WE HAVE TOGETHER.

WE EVEN HAVE SOME QUESTIONS WE ASKED TO HUMAN RESOURCES AND OTHER STAFF MEMBERS. ARE NO OUR OTHER COLLEAGUES HAVE ALSO HAD QUESTIONS THEY WANT ANSWERED TO.

AND THE TRUTH IS WE STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO TO GET THE FULL ANSWERS WE NEED. IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO VOTE ON SOMETHING THAT IS REALLY NOT CREATED YET.

AND SUB PERMISSIVE AUTHORITY IS THERE.

BUT THERE MANY CONVERSATIONS THAT NEED TO BE HAD.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE BILL, THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN ITS CRAFTING OF IT, THERE ARE MANDATORY FEATURES OF THE LEGISLATION.AND SO EVERY CRV OR CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT BOARD HAS TO ESTABLISH HISOWN POLICIES AND PROCEDURES .

IT WOULD BE WEIRD OF US TO VOTE ON A CONCEPT WITHOUT ESTABLISHING POLICIES AND PROCEDURES, WHICH WILL TAKE A LITTLE BIT MORE TIME. WE HAVE TO WRESTLE WITH THE CRV BILL SAYS IT SHOULD REFLECT DEMOGRAPHIC DIVERSITY SHALL IS A PERMANENT WORD. WE HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE IT REFLECT THE DEMOGRAPHIC DIVERSITY ON THE LOCALITY.

CLEARLY WE KNOW WHAT THE STATS ARE.

BUT HOW DO YOU MAKE OF BOARD LOOK THAT WAY.

AND OTHER THINGS. LIKE THE MANDATORY FEATURES.

IF WE DECIDE TO CREATE A CRV, THE CRV CALLS FOR AUTOMATIC LOSS OR PROCEDURAL GUARANTEES BIRDS OF WHAT THE PROCESS LOOKS LIKE IF YOU HAVE A CRV AND THERE IS AN AUTOMATIC LOSS.

THAT IS ãTHOSE ARE CONVERSATIONS THAT NEED TO HAPPEN BETWEEN MY COLLEAGUES AND I IF WE ARE INTENTIONAL.

LET ME HOLD THAT PART. AND SO OTHER THINGS.

HOW ARE WE GOING TO RECEIVE COMPLAINTS.

DOES THE BOARD HAVE INVESTIGATIVE POWERS.

IF NOT, WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE.

WE TALKED ABOUT PARALLEL INVESTIGATIONS.

IF YOU HAVE INVESTIGATIVE POWERS, AND SO PROBABLY NEEDS ITS OWN ATTORNEY AND STAFF. IT IS THE WHOLE BINDING DISCIPLINE CONVERSATION. A STRONG INVESTIGATIVE CRV BASED UPON THE BILL HAS BINDING DISCIPLINE AUTHORITY, WHICH IN ESSENCE TAKES THE DISCIPLINE AUTHORITY FROM THE CHIEF OF POLICE AND IN OUR COUNTIES, THE WAY OUR COUNTY IS MADE UP, OUR COUNTY MANAGER IS THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC SAFETY.

AND SO WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE HERE.

IF THERE IS AUTOMATIC LOSS OF PROCEDURALGUARANTEES .

WE STILL HAVE TO TALK ABOUT WHAT SUBPOENA POWER LOOKS LIKE AS IT RELATES TO CRIMINAL CASES AND INTERNAL INVESTIGATIONS THROUGH THERE ARE CONFIDENTIALITY CONCERNS THAT MAY COME FORWARD. WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE.

AND SO ALL OF THESE THINGS HAVE TO BE DISCUSSED.

THE BIGGEST KICKER IS THIS. EVEN IF WE VOTE TONIGHT, THE LEGISLATION IS NOT EFFECTIVE UNTIL JULY 1, 2021.AND SO WE CAN'T ACT. EVEN IF WE PUT FORWARD A BODY, WHICH WE CAN'T LEGALLY DO BASED UPON CONSULTATION WITH OUR COUNTY ATTORNEY. WE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO EVEN VOTE. THE FIRST THING WE NEED TO DO IS VOTE ON WHETHER OR NOT WE ARE GOING TO HAVE IT.

AND THAT BODY WOULD NOT START WORK UNTIL AFTER JULY 1.

AND WE CAN'T NAME ANYBODY TO IT UNTIL WE EFFECTIVELY ARE ABLE TO VOTE. SO WE HAVE TIME.

IN TIME IS A GOOD IF YOU WANT TO DO IT RIGHT.

THE IDEA AND PREMISE IS STILL THERE.

I STILL HAVE MORE CORE BELIEFS AND FEELINGS ABOUT WHAT I THINK THIS IS IMPORTANT. BUT IT IS NOT WORTH RUSHING THROUGH IT WHEN I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS AND MY COLLEAGUES STILL HAVE QUESTIONS. AND SO I WANT TO SIMPLY SUGGEST THIS. AND THEN I WILL MAKE A MOTION.

[01:25:08]

BUT I AM ASSUMING, MR. CHAIR, THERE WILL BE SOME DISCUSSION AT SOME POINT. WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE HAPPEN ãSINCE DAN AND I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS WE HAVE MET MANY TIMES OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS, THAT WE CONTINUE TO WORK TOGETHER, CONSULT STAFF WHEN NECESSARY.

AND IN APRIL. BECAUSE I ALSO NOTICED IT IS BUDGET SEASON AND I WANT TO BE FAIR TO OUR STAFF AS THEY ARE PUTTING TOGETHER IN THE MIDST OF COVID BUDGET.

MAY BE AROUND THE MIDDLE OF APRIL, SECOND MEETING IN APRIL POSSIBLY. OR SOMETIME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH. THAT I BRING FORWARD A RECOMMENDATION AFTER CONSULTATION WITH DOWN AND THE STAFF, WHICH WOULD THEN IF WE STAY ON TARGET FOR JULY 1.

LET'S SAY THIS IS SOMETHING THE BOARD CONSIDERS.

THAT BY THE MIDDLE OF APRIL WE BRING FORWARD A RECOMMENDATION THAT ESTABLISHES POLICIES AND PROCEDURES.

I BRING IT, AND GIVES THE REST OF THE GROUP THAT LEAST 45 DAYS.E SAY A TARGET DATE IS JUNE.

IS THERE A CONSENSUS ON WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE? WE CAN HAGGLE OVER IT FOR 45 DAYS, YOU GUYS CAN HAVE TOWN HALL MEETINGS OR WHATEVER YOU NEED TO DO TO MAKE SURE YOUR CONSTITUENTS ARE EDUCATED. YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT, YOU DON'T FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT. AT SOME POINT WE DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT THIS IS SOMETHING WE NEED TO DO OR WANT TO DO.

AND IF IT IS, THE TRACK THAT WE GO ON ãIF JUNE 1 THERE IS A CONSENSUS AND WE KNOW THAT COM JULY , JULY 1 WE VOTE TO ACCEPT THIS. AND THEN THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS WE NEED TO DO IN CERTAIN THINGS WE NEED TO PUT IN PLACE.

I KNOW THAT WAS A LAW. BUT A LOT OF TIME IS GOING INTO THIS OVER THE LAST COUPLE MONTHS.

OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS. I THOUGHT I KNEW WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE AND I KNOW THE BUZZWORDS OUT THERE FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE FOR IT AND PEOPLE AGAINST IT.

TO GET HUNG UP ON THE POWER OF THE BOARDS.

BUT THE TRUTH IS TO DO THIS THING RIGHT WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH THAT BILL. ALL EIGHT POINTS.

EVERY ALPHABET. AND MAKE IT FIT HERE IN HENRICO COUNTY. SO I MOVE, AND HE KNEW WE HAD A DISCUSSION, BUT I NEED TO PUT THE MOTION ON THE TABLE.

I MOVE WE APPROVE AGENDA ITEM 820 AND THE RESOLUTION IS SIMPLY THIS. TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE NEED AND DESIRABILITY FOR CONTINUED CONSULTATION REGARDING RECENT CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT BOARD LEGISLATION.

WITH THAT TARGETED CALENDAR THAT I SPOKE OF.

>> I SECOND THAT. SPOKE MOTION MADE BY MR. NELSON, SECOND BY MR. THORNTON. ALL IN FAVOR QUICK.> MAY I

COMMENT? >> ABSOLUTELY.

>>PATRICIA S. O'BANNON: MR. NELSON HAS COVERED THE IDEA OF CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT BODY IN THE LEGISLATION, BUT FROM THE FIRST TIME I READ THE LEGISLATION AS IT IS PRESENTED, THE FIRST PERSON I CALLED WAS THE COUNTY ATTORNEY.

THERE ARE ITEMS IN THERE THAT MR. NELSON MENTIONED THAT COULD BE CONSIDERED UNCONSTITUTIONAL. ALTHOUGH THE COUNTY ATTORNEY DID WAIVER IN ANSWERING THAT DIRECTLY.

THIS LEGISLATION IS CERTAINLY FLAWED.

SOME OF THE ITEMS MENTIONED IN THEIR.

AND AGAIN, MR. NELSON DID POINT OUT THE BOARD SHALL REFLECTTHE COMMUNITY. THAT COULD BE IN POSSIBLE TO DO. THIS LEGISLATION COULD BE FATALLY FLAWED. IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO

[01:30:04]

CONSIDER DOING IT WITH THIS LEGISLATION IN MIND.

SO THAT IS WHERE IT GETS TO BE REALLY STICKY.

HE MENTIONS, IT IS MENTIONED IN THEIR CONTINUING CONSULTATION REGARDING RECENT CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT BODY LEGISLATION.

AND SO YOU ARE POINTING TO THIS EXACT HOUSE BILL, 5055.

WERE THE FINAL HOUSE AND SENATE VERSION.

THE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. MY CONCERNS ARE WE ARE STARTING WITH A FLAWED PRODUCT. AND MOVING FROM THAT WE WOULD PROBABLY END UP WITH A FLAWED ANSWER.

WE CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT. WE HAVE HANDLED THINGS LIKE THIS BEFORE IN MANY TIMES, MANY WAYS THROUGH THE YEARS ONLY ABOUT CONCERNS ABOUT PROBLEMS. WE HAVE DONE IT INDIVIDUALLY, AS A BOARD AND SOMETIMES INSTRUCTING THE MANAGER.

WITH DONE THINGS WITH DOMESTIC VIOLENCE THAT WON NATIONAL AWARDS, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ITEMS THAT THE MANAGER HAS WORKED ON. WE HAVE ENCOURAGED PLANNING AND ZONING ISSUES SUCH AS YOU SAW TONIGHT.

AND THE ONE THAT TOOK A LONG TIME BECAUSE IDEAS CHANGED ON THINGS SUCH AS DRUG USE. THE RECOVERY ROUND TABLE.

SO MY CONCERN IS WE ARE USING A FLAWED BASIS ON WHICH TO WORK.

TO DEVELOP SOMETHING. AND I HAVE A VERY DEEP CONCERN FOR THAT. THAT THIS LEGISLATION IN MY OPINION IS FATALLY FLAWED BECAUSE HE CANNOTDO SOME OF THE THINGS IN IT . I WILL ADD I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS MYSELF. I HAVE A LIST OF 10 ITEMS. WILL NOT READ THEM.F WAYS WE COULD WORK RIGHT NOW TO IMPROVE TRANSPARENCY AND TRUST WITH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

BUT I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO MENTION OUR NEW POLICE CHIEF HAS BEEN ALREADY WORKING ON THIS NOT AT MY DIRECTION, CERTAINLY. BUT HE IS PICKED UP ON MANY OF THESE ITEMS THAT COULD IMPROVE THE TRUST AND TRANSPARENCY FOR THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. PAND SO I APPRECIATE THE CHIEF OF POLICE HAS MOVED FORWARD ON THE ISSUES THAT DO BRING MORE TRANSPARENCY AND TRUST TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

MY CONCERN IS WORKING ON THIS OVERSIGHT BODY BECAUSE WE ARE WORKING WITH LAW LEGISLATION. MR. NELSON POINTED OUT.

>> I JUST WANT TO ADD NOT TO THE TOPIC OF THE CONVERSATION.

I WANT TO SAY THE SUMMARY MR. NELSON JUST GAVE, I WOULD SAY YOU HIT IT ON THE HEAD. EVERYTHING WE DISCUSSED.

TO THANK YOU FOR THAT.I WILL SAY THIS.

THE NEED FOR DISCUSSION AROUND THIS TOPIC EXISTS.

THE NEED FOR IN-DEPTH REVIEW OF THIS TOPIC IS CALLED FOR.

MR. NELSON, YOU ARE ASKING FOR US TO TALK AND CONSULT ON A TOPIC THAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU, IT IS IMPORTANT TO OUR CONSTITUENTS. AND BECAUSE OF THAT, I AM VERY WILLING TO DO SO. AND YOUR ABILITY RECENTLY IN OUR CONVERSATIONS THE REFLECTION YOU'VE SHOWN IT IN THE END OF DESIRE TO FIND THE RIGHT ANSWERS AND DO WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR LOCALITY HAS BEEN WELCOMED.

THANK YOU FOR THE TIME YOU HAVE PUT IN THIS FAR.

I LOOK FORWARD TO THOSE DISCUSSIONS.

AND I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE SUMMARY YOU JUST GAVE WAS REMARKABLY ACCURATE AND THOROUGH AND TOOK TO THE DISCUSSIONS WE HAVE. THANK YOU FOR THAT.

>>FRANK J. THORNTON: WHEN YOU LOOK AT TALKING ABOUT TRYING TO ESTABLISH A CITIZEN REVIEW BOARD AND LOOK AT HOW THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY TAILORED THE LEGISLATION, IT'S GOING TO TAKE DILIGENCE. BUT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IS NOW TO COMPLETE THE LEGISLATION, IF THAT IS WHAT WE CHOOSE TO DO.

[01:35:01]

BUT THIS IS MY POSITION IN ADDITION TO ARRIVING AT THAT.

IT WOULD SEEM TO ME IT WOULD BE PRUDENT TO TAKE A DISCUSSION WITH MY GOOD COLLEAGUE DISCUSSION CONVERSATION.

AND SEEMS TO ME I DON'T KNOW WHETHER OR NOT THIS BOARD HAS EVER DISCUSSED.R WHETHER OR NOT IT IS IMPORTANT TO DISCUSS TO ME IT WOULD BE. THE RATIONALE FOR WHAT WE WANT TO DO AND WHAT SHOULD A POLICE FORCE LOOK LIKE IN THE 21ST CENTURY. AND THINK YOU NEED TO LOOK AT ALL OF THAT. BECAUSE I DON'T SEE HOW YOU ARRIVE AT SAYING THE CRV WOULD BE LIKE THIS OR THAT.

AND WE JUST NEED TO SAY THAT WHAT SHOULD POLICING LOOK LIKE IN THE 21ST CENTURY. THOSE WHO CARE TO LOOK AT THE HISTORY OF IT. I WOULD LIKE FOR US TO GET AWAY FROM, SOME PEOPLE DEMONIZE THE DISCUSSION.

I REALLY THINK IT MIGHT BE HELPFUL TO TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT DOES POLICING, WHAT SHOULD POLICING LOOK LIKE IN THE 21ST CENTURY. AND I AM AMAZED THAT TODAY WE HAD DISCUSSION ABOUT THE CODE. THE CODE HADN'T BEEN CHANGED SINCE 1960. SO I THINK IT IS FAIR TO THE POLICE ITSELF TO HAVE THAT DISCUSSION ABOUT WHAT IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE. REMEMBER WE HAD THE AUDIENCE COME IN THE TOOK SHOTS AT SOME OF US AND ALL THAT.

BUT HENRICO HAS ONE OF THE OUTSTANDING POLICE DEPARTMENTS.

WE ARE TALKING ABOUT AND DIDN'T GOOD DISCUSSION IS HOW DO WE IMPROVE WHAT WE HAVE. DON'T EVER RECALL IS GETTING TO THAT CONVERSATION. IT COULD BE MY COLLEAGUES DON'T CARE TO DISCUSS THAT IN PUBLIC. I DON'T KNOW.

BUT I DO THINK WE SHOULD TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT IT THINKS POLICING SHOULD LOOK LIKE IN THE YEAR 2020+.

WE CAN GET SOME LEGISLATION. I THINK THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL

TO US. >>PATRICIA S. O'BANNON: I DID NOT SAY THERE SHOULD NOT BE DISCUSSION.

MY CONCERN IS IN SAYS REGARDING RECENT OVERSIGHT BODY LEGISLATION AND THE RESOLUTION SAYS THAT WE WOULD TRY TO IMPLEMENT CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT BODY FOR THE LEGISLATION IS THERE. AND MR. NELSON POINTED OUT THE TWO BIGGEST FLAWS IS THAT IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE A BOARD THAT REFLECTS THE COMMUNITY WITHOUT IT BEING.

I TOOK A SHOT AT IT AND I GOT TO 27 PEOPLE.

IT IS A MOST IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE THEY WOULD HAVE TO, IN OTHER WORDS THERE ARE SOME LEGALITIES THERE.

SO MY CONCERN IS IMPLEMENTING THE CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT BODY LEGISLATION SPEAK TO MR. CHAIRMAN, I DON'T LIKE BORROWING, BUT PROBABLY NOTHING IS NEW.

THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO USE THE WORD LET US REIMAGINE WHAT POLICING SHOULD BE IN THE 21ST CENTURY.

SO I'M JUST SAYING LET US HAVE THAT DISCUSSION IF WE CHOOSE TO. THANK YOU MR. CHAIRMAN! MR. CHAIRMAN, DO YOU MIND? I KNOW YOU HAVE SOMECOMMENTS .

>>THOMAS M. BRANIN: YOU SEE ME WRITING DOWN.

>> CAN I RESPOND? >>THOMAS M. BRANIN: ABSOLUTELY.

>>TYRONE E. NELSON: I'M NOT GOING TO USE THE WORD FLAWED.

I'M GOING TO SAY THERE IS SOME OPPORTUNITY.

THE LEGISLATION. I THINK FOR ME THE BIGGEST WORD IS PERMISSIVE. AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SO MUCH EASIER FOR US IF THE STATE LEGISLATION.

IF THE STATE LEGISLATIVE BODY WERE TO SAY DO IT OR DON'T DO IT AND TELL US HOW TO DO IT. BUT THEY DIDN'T TELL US HOW TO DO IT, THEY GAVE US PERMISSIVE AUTHORITY.

AND AGAIN, I THINK THE REASON THAT I AM HERE IS BECAUSEIF YOU GET TIED UP INTO THE POLITICS OF IT , YOU TAKE THE IDEOLOGY

[01:40:03]

OF WHAT THIS IS ABOUT AND TRY TO PUSH IT.UT WHEN YOU READ THROUGH THE BILL YOU REALIZE THEREARE SOME REAL LEGITIMTE QUESTIONS . I DON'T EVEN WANT TO GO AS FAR.

THIS IS MS. O'BANNON OPINION IS THAT IT IS UNFLAWED AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL. I'M GOING TO SAY IT GIVES US AN OPPORTUNITY TO DIG, TO LEARN SOME OF THE LANGUAGE.

AND IT OPENS IT UP TO INTERPRETATION.

LIKE THE EXAMPLE MS. O'BANNON JUST GAVE.

WHEN I LOOK AT THE DEMOGRAPHIC CONVERSATION, I WOULD BE CURIOUS TO SEE HOW YOU GOT THE 27 PEOPLE.

WHEN I LOOK AT IT, I'M LOOKING AT IT FROM AN AGENDA PERSPECTIVE. I AM LOOKING AT IT FROM MINORITY, ETC. AGAIN, IT SHALL REFLECT.

THUS THE REASON I WANT TO LEAN ON THE EXPERTISE OF THOSE WHO GET LEGAL ADVICE FROM. BUT ALSO LOOK AT OTHER LEGISLATION. WE HAVE TIME TO DO WAS OF THOSE THINGS. AGAIN, TO BE THE LEGISLATION THAT IS SHARED IS ALMOST LIKE AN OUTLINE.

WE HAVE TO GO IN AND FILL IN SOME OF THE GAPS AND WE HAVE TO GO AND LOOK AT, THE WORD PERMISSIVE MEANS IT IS LOCALITY -BASED. WE HAVE TO REALIZE, WE HAVE TO GO BACK AND LOOK AT WHAT IN HENRICO WE ARE ABLE TO DO.

NOW, TWO THINGS I WANT TO RESPOND TO DIRECTLY.

I KNOW WE HAVE INSTRUCTED THE MANAGER IN THE PAST.

I HAVE SAID THIS TO STAFF, I WILL SAY IT AGAIN PUBLICLY.

I THINK WE HAVE ONE OF THE TOP BUREAUCRATIC LEADERS IN THE COUNTRY IN HENRICO COUNTY S OUR LEADER.

I KNOW OVER THE PAST WE PASSED THE COUNTY MANAGER AND STAFF TO LOOK AT SOMETHING DIRECTLY AND COME BACK AND MAKE A RECOMMENDATION. SO THIS IS NO SLIGHT AGAINST THEM. AT THIS TIME, THIS IS SOMETHING I BROUGHT FORWARD IN THE MODEL I AM RECOMMENDING THE USE IS FOR MY COLLEAGUE AND I TO CONSULT WITH STFF AND COME UP WITH SOMETHING AND BRING IT BACK TO THE BODY.

THE SAME STUFF THAT THE COUNTY MANAGER WOULD ASSIGN THE DUTY OF PUTTING SOMETHING TOGETHER IS THE SAME THAT WE WILL CONSULT WHEN WE HAVE QUESTIONS. WE NEED TO BE POINTED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, ETC. SO IT IS REALLY SEMANTICS.

WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE SAME FOLKS.

ALSO, I'M GLAD CHIEF ENGLISH WAS BROUGHT UP.

LET ME SAY THIS. I WAS A CHIEF CHEERLEADER FOR BRINGING THE CHIEF HERE. HIS WORK PRIOR TO COMING HERE SPEAKS FOR HIM. WHAT I HAVE HEARD ABOUT HIM AS A CHIEF. MR. MANAGER, HOW LONG IS THE

CHIEF AND HERE KNOW? >> FOUR MONTHS! HOW MANY MONTHS HAVE YOU BEEN HERE?THREE MONTHS? I HAVE NOT HEARD ANYTHING NEGATIVE.

AND THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT IS NOT, BUT I HAVE HEARD NOTHING FROM THE STREET LEVEL ALL THE WAY UP TO THOSE WHO WORK DIRECTLY WITH THE CHIEF. NOTHING BUT POSITIVE THINGS.

I WAS IMPRESSED AT THE CHIEF NOT TOO LONG AGO.

THE LAST TWO WEEKS MET WITH SOME OF US.

SHOWED SOME OF US INFORMATION ALREADY OUT THERE THAT HAS BEEN COMPILED. THE COMMITMENT TO MAKING SURE DATA AND INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE TO THE CITIZENS.

LISTENING TO SOME OF HIS PLANS GOING FORWARD MAKES ME FEEL REALLY CONFIDENT THAT WE HAVE CHOSEN THE RIGHT PERSON.

WHAT MS. O'BANNON MENTIONED A WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT IS TWO DIFFERENT THINGS. I'M TALKING ABOUT THE CREATION OF A CIVILIAN REVIEW BOARD, CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT BOARD THAT IS A SEPARATE ENTITY THEN SO LATE LOOKING AT THE CHIEF AND THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT EVEN THE CHIEF CAN'T DO.AND TAMIA GO BACK TO RECOURSE.

AND I CAN'T HELP BUT TO THINK ABOUT THE MANY PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITIES THAT I DEAL WITH I REPRESENT TO THE MANY STORIES I

[01:45:01]

HEARD IN THE COMMUNITY NEEDS TO KNOW THERE IS SOME AVAILABLE METHOD OR MECHANISM IF THEY NEEDED.

AND THE LAST THING IS THIS. THIS WILL BE HARD WORK AND AND I WILL NOT BE EASY. I UNDERSTAND THERE WERE THOSE WHO WOULD LOVE IF I JUST WENT STRAIGHT ONE WAY AND NOT LOOKED AT THIS WITH THE PROPER PERSPECTIVE.

AND THAT MIGHT BE THE RIGHT POLITICAL THING TO DO, BUT THIS AIN'T ABOUT POLITICS. IT'S ABOUT OUR CITIZENS AND WHAT IS BEST FOR THEM. WINDOW LOOK AT WHAT THE ADVISORY PIECE LOOKS AT, WITH THE INVESTIGATIVE PIECE LOOKS LIKE. AGAIN, I WILL SAY THIS AGAIN, HOPEFULLY THOSE WHO ARE WATCHING WILL VERIFY I AM NOT ANTI-POLICE SIMPLY BECAUSE I AM PRO-CITIZEN WHEN IT COMES TO HAVING RECOURSE FOR MY NINE YEARS ON THIS BOARD, I HAVE NEVER VOTED AGAINST ANYTHING THAT MADE SENSE THAT OUR POLICE DEPARTMENT BROUGHT FORWARD. I AM 100 PERCENT BEHIND MAKING SURE OUR PUBLIC SAFETY EMPLOYEES GET WHAT THEY NEED TO DO THE JOB THAT THEY NEED TO DO.

BUT I ALSO FOR MAKING SURE OUR CITIZENS ARE NOT TREATED THAT ARE UNETHICAL AND UNMORAL AND STRAIGHT UP WRONG THAT IS WHY

IT IS IMPORTANT TO ME FOR IN. >>PATRICIA S. O'BANNON: MR. NELSON, I'M GLAD YOU DID MENTION THAT.

THAT YOUR CONCERN IS NOT POLITICAL.

REALLY APPRECIATE THAT. BECAUSE MY CONCERN IS THIS IS LEGISLATION THAT IS CONSIDERED LONG.

AND WE SHOULD STAY WITH THE LAW AND WE SHOULD DO THINGS THAT ARE UNLAWFUL I'M NOT OPPOSED TO TALKING ABOUT CIVILIAN REVIEW BOARDS. MY CONCERN IS IF WE BASE IT ON A LAW THAT IS FLAWED.AND YOU EVEN MENTIONED, HAS A SAID THAT. SO I DID NOT SAY I WAS OPPOSED.

I'M SIMPLY SAYING WHEN YOU HAVE GONE OVER THIS, EVERY MEMBER OF THE BOARD HAS GONE OVER THAT. BUT THERE ARE WAYS WE CAN DO THIS THAT PERHAPS ARE NOT PART OF THIS LEGISLATION.

THE REASON I WOULD BRING IT UP THAT WAY IS BECAUSE I DON'T TRUST THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY. BUT I TRUST HENRICO COUNTY AND ANY PEOPLE THAT THE MANAGER AND THE ATTORNEY DECIDED TO LOOK THIS OVER AND WOULD TELL US ABOUT IT.

IN THE PITFALLS, THE TRIP UPS. WHAT WOULD HAPPEN.

BECAUSE I TRUST THEM. BECAUSE IF WE WRITE A LAW, IT SHOULD BE A GOOD LAW AND NOT ONE THAT IS FLAWED! MR. SHARE, I'M SORRY. I'M NOT GOING TO DISPARAGE THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY. SOME GOOD PEOPLE IN THE GENERAL SIMPLY PUT MANY I'VE WORKED WITH.

BOTH DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS. THEY ARE PEOPLE JUST LIKE WE ARE. THE PAST LEGISLATION, THE GOVERNOR SIGNED IT. IT IS WHAT IT IS BUT IT IS PERMISSIVE SO IT ALLOWS US TO CREATE A WILL WAY THAT MAKES

SENSE FOR US. >> WHICH IS A GREAT SEGUE INTO ME I THINK MAYBE WRAPPING THIS UP.

MR. NELSON, IN JUNE YOU SENT US A LETTER AND ASKED US TO CONSIDER FIVE THINGS. FOR THINGS.

AND AT THAT POINT WE SAID WE WOULD ABSOLUTELY.

WE TAKE INPUT, AS HE STATED, FROM THE COMMUNITY.

WHICH WAS ENLIGHTENING. IT WAS INFORMATIVE.

WE START TALKING ABOUT LEGISLATION GOING THROUGH THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY. YOU MADE THE COMMENT TO ME AT THAT TIME WE SHOULD WAIT TO SEE WHAT IS COMING OUT OF THERE BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT TO RUSH THIS.

IT HAS TO BE DONE RIGHT. MR. THORNTON IN OUR MEETINGS AND EVERY TIME WE HAVE SPOKEN TO THIS WE HAVE SAID WE NEED TO HAVE A ROBUST DISCUSSION. WE NEED TO DO WHAT HENRICO DOES AND MAKE SURE WHATEVER WE DO IS DONE RIGHT.

MS. O'BANNON, YOU HAVE, IN DISCUSSIONS HAVE BROUGHT OUT

[01:50:05]

COUNTLESS TIMES THAT HENRICO COUNTY ALWAYS STOPS.

WE TAKE ALL INFORMATION, WE ANALYZE IT EVERY WHICH WAY WE CAN. LOOKING AT LAW, CONSTITUTION, CITIZENS INPUT. DAN, YOU HAVE BEEN GOD KNOWS THE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION YOU HAVE HANDED TO ME IN YOUR NOTES, YOU HAVE BEEN IN DEPTH IN IT.

WE HAD A NEW CHIEF TO ACHIEVE GOING YOU'RE DOING A GREAT JOB.

ANYONE WHO SAYS THEY ARE GONNA MEET WITH 650 EMPLOYEES FACE-TO-FACE, MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU.

BUT YOU ARE GETTING A FEEL OF EVERY BIT OF YOUR FORCE, WHICH IS CRITICAL. AND SAID YOU'RE MAKING CHANGES.

BRIEF TO THIS BOARD ON WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND KEEP GOING.

STAFF HAS, WE ALWAYS SAID WE ARE GOING TO MOVE THIS FORWARD.

MR. NELSON, THANK YOU SAYING THIS IS A MEDICAL FOR THIS IS ABOUT DOING IT RIGHT. WHICH IS WHAT I THINK NO POLITICS, THE POLITICS OF AGE, WHICH IS MOST IMPORTANT.

WE HAVE ALL SAID WHATEVER WE DO AND MUST BE DONE RIGHT.

AND I THINK WHETHER IT HAS BEEN WE NEED TO MOVE FORWARD.

THE FASTER WE NEEDTO STEP BACK AND SLOW DOWN .

IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT WE HAVE DONE WHAT WE'VE MOVED, LISTENED, MOVED, LISTENED. AND NOW THE NEXT STEP IS LET'S LOOK AT LEGALITY. WE WILL USE OUR ATTORNEYS.

AND WE ARE STILL MOVING FORWARD TO CREATE WHAT IS BEST.

I DON'T THINK ANYONE UP HERE IS QUESTION ANYTHING WE DO WE ARE GOING TO DO WHAT'S BEST FOR THE COUNTY.

AND IN MY OPINION, THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE DOING.

WE HAVE HAD DISCUSSION TONIGHT. MR. THORNTON, IS A WE NEED MORE DISCUSSION. I TOTALLY AGREE 100 PERCENT.

WE JUST TALKED ABOUT, AS WAS REFLECTED IN OUR WORK SESSION IN REGARDS TO CHANGING ORDINANCES THAT HAVEN'T BEEN CHANGED YOUR LAW THAT HASN'T BEEN CHANGED SINCE 1960.

SO THIS BOARD IS TASKED WITH ACCOUNTING THAT HASN'T CHANGED A LOT OF THINGS FOR MANY YEARS. PREIMAGINING.

LOOKING FORWARD TO THE FUTURE. MOVING PROGRESSIVELY INTO THE FUTURE. HOW DO WE DO THAT WITH THE ZONING. HOW DO WE DO THAT WITH OUR POLICE. HOW DO WE DO THAT WITH OUR PUBLIC UTILITIES. SO THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE POINTS YOU DID WITH TIMELINE. THANK YOU FOR BRINGING OUT DISCUSSION AGAIN TONIGHT. GOD, THANK YOU FOR SAYING THIS CAN'T BE POLITICAL. THIS MUST BE FOR THE BEST OF OUR COUNTY. INTO THE REST OF THE BOARD MEMBERS THAT HAVE PUT IN PUT, THIS IS WHAT WE DO.

SO THANK YOU. >> THE TIMELINE REPEAT ONE MORE

TIME, IF THAT IS OKAY? >> GO AHEAD.

DO THE TIMELINE. >> THE EXPECTATION WOULD BE TOO BRING SOMETHING FORWARD ON MID APRIL.

THERE WOULD BE SOME CONSENSUS THAT BY JUNE 1, IF THERE WAS SOMETHING THAT CAN BE AGREED UPON OR SOMETHING TO BE BROUGHT FORWARD FOR A VOTE. LET'S NOT USE THE WORD SOMETHING THAT CAN BE AGREED UPON.

SOMETHING BROUGHT FORWARD BY MID APRIL THAT ALL OF US WILL HAVE 45 DAYS TO LOOK AT, TALK ABOUT, SHARE WITH RESIDENTS.

HAGGLE OVER OR WHATEVER BE THE CASE.

THAT BY JUNE 1 WE WOULD KNOW THERE WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE BROUGHT FORWARD TO BE VOTED ON.

OF FOUR DOWN. >> NOTED.

AND I WOULD SAY I THINK WHATEVER COMES OVER, IF IT IS BEST FOR OUR COUNTY, AND I ASKED OUR CLERK TO READ,

[01:55:05]

PLEASE, NO SOLUTION? INTO THE RECORD?

>> RESOLUTION ACKNOWLEDGING THE NEED AND DESIRABILITY FOR CONTINUED CONSULTATION REGARDING RECENT OVERSIGHT BODY LEGISLATION SHOULD WHEREAS THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF VIRGINIA PERMISSIVE AUTHORITIES OF LOCAL GOVERNING BODIES TO GREAT LAW ENFORCEMENT CIVIL OVERSIGHT BODIES AND WERE AS THE LEGISLATION PERMITS LOCAL GOVERNING BODY TO ESTABLISH AND DETERMINE THE POWERS OF THE OVERSIGHT BODY.

WERE AS SUCCESSFUL IMPLEMENTATION OF THE LEGISLATION WILL REQUIRE CAREFUL CONSIDERATION OF COMPLEX LEGAL AND PRACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR EFFECTIVE OPERATIONS OF CIVIL OVERSIGHT BODIES AND WHEREAS MEMBERS OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS HAS ELICITED AND OBTAINED INFORMATION ABOUT THESE DIFFICULT CONSIDERATIONS FOR NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS KNOWLEDGES NEED AND DESIRABILITY AND CONTINUED COMPETITION ABOUT BOARD MEMBERS WITH STAFF REGARDING IMPLEMENTATION OF THE OVERSIGHT BODY LEGISLATION THAT AGENDA

ITEM 308 20.>> THANK YOU, TANYA.

SO THIS IS WE ARE MOVING FORWARD.

AND WE ARE MOVING FORWARD WITH NOT, DISCUSSION TO BRING FORTH WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR COUNTY. THERE WAS A MOTION ON THE FLOOR. MR. NELSON, IT WAS SECONDED BY MR. THORTON. I WILL ASK FOR A VOTE NOW.

ALL IN FAVOR SAY AYE. ALL OPPOSED.

THAT MOTION CARRIES. STAFF, MR. MANAGER, WE LOOK FORWARD TO INFORMATION AND FURTHER DISCUSSION.WITH THAT,

WE ARE FINISHED. >> I WANTED TO GIVE KUDOS TO HOW THIS ROOM WAS DECORATED. AND IT SHOWS THIS BOARDROOM HAS

PANACHE. >> THE ONE THING WE FINISHED AND WE WILL COMPLETE THIS EVENING WILL WISH FROM EACH ONE OF US TO OUR COMMUNITY EVERYBODY HACKED UP.

>> NOT WILL I AM CHAIR. EVERYBODY HACKED UP.

MR. MANAGER, THANK YOU FOR COMING FORWARD AT THIS TIME FOR LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, YOU HAVE HEARD.

WE HAVE COMPLETED OUR LAST MEETING FOR 2020.

WE HAVE BEEN MR. NEW SMACK YEAR IN MANY WAYS.
