>>> THREE COMMENTS FOR THE BOARD FROM THE AUDIENCE THIS EVERYONEING.

TWO OF WHICH WILL BE MADE BY OTHER INDIVIDUALS UNDER MANAGER COMMENTS.

[4. MANAGER’S COMMENTS ]

I'LL ASK THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS TO COME FORWARD. EVERY NOW AND AGAIN, YOU KNOW, YOU COME ACROSS SOMETHING THAT CAUSES YOU -- WE NEED TO LET FOLKS KNOW.

WITH MR. HUGHES, I WANT TO SHARE THE FACT THAT THE VIRGINIA TRANSPORTATION CONSTRUCTION ALLIANCE IS HOLDING A VIRTUAL FALL TRANSPORTATION CONFERENCE FOR CONTRACTORS, CONSULTANT ENGINEERS, SUPPLIERS AND GOVERNMENT TRANSPORTATION OFFICIALS NEXT THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5 AND 6TH. OUR GOVERNOR, GOVERNOR NORTHAM HAS BEEN INVITED AS THE CONFERENCE'S KEYNOTE SPEAKER AND OUR OWN DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS, MR. TERRELL HUGHES HAS

[00:05:02]

BEEN INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN A PANEL DISCUSSION AT THAT CONFERENCE.

HE WILL BE SPEAKING ABOUT LESSONS LEARNED DURING COVID-19. THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR THAT HENRICO HAS PARTICIPATED IN THIS CONFERENCE, AND I WANT TODAY PUBLICLY CONGRATULATE TERRELL FOR BEING SELECTED TO REPRESENT HENRICO IN HIS ROLE AS A TRANSPORTATION EXPERT.

WE HAVE THAT TO REPORT BUT ALSO IN ADDITION TO THAT, WE HAD AN ANNOUNCEMENT LAST WEEK.

I KNOW MR. THORNTON, YOU WERE THERE WHEN THE GOVERNOR ANNOUNCED THE MOBILITY PROJECT FOR THE NEWLY ENTITLED FALL LINE. THIS IS A BIKEWAY, IF YOU WILL.

43-MILE TRAIL THAT WILL CONNECT COMMUNITIES FROM ASHLAND TO PETERSBURG WITH A MULTI-USE TRAIL WHICH WILL RUN NORTH TO SOUTH AND CONNECT TO THE CAPITAL TRAIL.

IT WILL DUPLICATE THE SUCCESS OF THE CAPITAL TRAIL WHICH LAST YEAR SAW OVER 800,000 USERS AND YOU SAW THAT WITH RICHMOND REGION TOURISM, THEIR PRESENTATION THIS AFTERNOON.

NOW THE GOVERNOR NOTED THAT VISITORS TO THE CAPITAL TRAIL HAVE PRODUCED OVER $9 MILLION IN ECONOMIC BENEFIT PER YEAR. SO AS USUAL, AND THE REASON I HAVE TERRELL HERE IS BECAUSE THERE IS A PART TWO TO THIS COMMENT, AND THAT IS PUBLIC WORKS HAS BEEN BUSILY PLANNING FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS FOR THE FALL LINE TRAIL. EVERYONE THOUGH WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WOULD BE CALLED, THAT WILL TRAVERSE THE COUNTY AND PRESENTLY HAS TWO PHASES IN DESIGN SO FOLLOWING THE GOVERNOR'S ANNOUNCEMENT, OUR COUNTY LEARNED WE HAVE BEEN AWARDED ALMOST $3 MILLION OF THE $5 MILLION PRICE TAG NEEDED TO CONSTRUCT THESE TWO SEGMENTS.

THE GENTLEMAN BEHIND ME I BELIEVE IS THE LARGE REASON FOR THE CONFIDENCE BEING BESTOWED OR PUT ON HENRICO. WE LOOK FORRWARD IN THE COUNTY N 2022.

MR. SCHMIDT WAS TALKING ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE VIRGINIA CENTER COMMONS, THAT WHOLE CORRIDOR THAT TRAVERSES FAIRFIELD AND BROOKLAND. I'LL ASK THEM TO SHARE A LITTLE

MORE. >> MR. CHAIRMAN, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, NICE TO SEE YOU THIS EVENING. AS THE MANAGER HAS MENTIONED ABOUT THE TRAIL, IT'S EXCITING TIMES HERE IN HENRICO COUNTY. I HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING THE PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR HERE AND WE HAVE A LOT COMING DOWN THE PIKELINE AND WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO DELIVER THESE PROJECTS. YOU MENTIONED THE TRAIL THAT'S PHASE ONE THAT WE'RE HOPING TO HAVE THE REMAINDER OF THE TRAIL, FIVE OTHER PHASES BUILT IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS.

WE HAVE REGIONAL FUNDING, CVTA THAT I'M SURE YOU'RE AWARE OF GIVING US THE ABILITY TO DO THESE TYPE OF PROJECTS. OTHER PEDESTRIAN TYPE PROJECTS AND BIKE PROJECTS AS WELL AS ROADWAY PROJECTS THAT ARE CITIZENS AND PEOPLE ARE HOME AND ENJOYING THE GREAT OUTDOORS.

HE ALSO MENTIONED THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK AT THE BCTA CONFERENCE.

EXCITED TO SHARE, YOU KNOW, JUST THE GREAT THINGS THAT HENRICO COUNTY IS DOING.

A LOT OF THAT IS THE LEADERSHIP OF YOU ALL AND THE MANAGER IN LEADING US THROUGH COVID.

I'M EXCITED TO KEEP THE PROJECT MOVING SO THANK YOU. >> CONGRATULATIONS ON SPEAKING

AT THE BTCA. >> MR. CHAIR, MY SECOND COMMENT IS THE BIWEEKLY COVID UPDATE.

I'LL ASK THE EMERGENCY MANAGER JACKSON TO COME FORWARD AND MAKE THE PRESENTATION.

>> MR. CHAIRMAN, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, MR. MANAGER. THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY.

WE DO HAVE A COUPLE SLIDES LOADED UP HERE THAT WE'LL GO THROUGH VERY BRIEFLY FOR YOU.

I DO WISH I HAD -- AS WE LOOK AT TRYING TO MAKE PROJECTIONS AND TRYING TO PULL IN INFORMATION WHETHER IT'S FROM HERE IN VIRGINIA OR ACROSS THE COUNTRY OR GLOBE THAT WE COULD DO A BETTER JOB OF WHAT WE'RE EXPECTING NEXT. BEST THING WE CAN DO IS TAKE THE INFORMATION WE HAVE AND TRY TO PREPARE THE COUNTY FOR THAT AS WE MOVE FORWARD.

WITH THE FIRST SLIDE WE'LL LOOK AT, THERE WE GO. IT'S OUR HENRICO DATA TRENDS.

[00:10:02]

WE HAVE A COUPLE SLIDES THAT FOLKS SOLELY ON HENRICO COUNTY. HERE WE'RE LOOKING AT SEVEN-DAY AVERAGES OF NEW CASES. SO THIS IS JUST CASE NUMBERS ALONE WHICH DON'T REALLY NECESSARILY TELL US THE WHOLE STORY REALLY AS THE DOCTOR POINTED OUT TWO WEEKS AGO.

THERE IS ADDITIONAL TESTING GOING ON AND THIS IS SOMETHING WE NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO.

>> THIS IS A LITTLE BETTER PICTURE FOR US AS WE LOOK FORWARD.

IT'S OUR PERCENT POSITIVITY LOOKING AT SEVEN-DAY AND THE FOURTEEN-DAY AVERAGE.

YOU SEE IT'S FAIRLY CONSISTENT. WE'RE STAYING AND HOVERING AROUND THE 5% POSITIVITY AVERAGE WHICH CURRENTLY IN LINE WITH THE STATE OF VIRGINIA'S POSITIVITY AVERAGE.

WE HAVE BENCHMARKED ABOVE AND BELOW THROUGHOUT THE LAST YEAR. I THINK THIS TELLS A BETTER PICTURE WHEN WE START LOOKING AT SUVIRTY AND POTENTIAL AREAS TO PREPARE FOR.

IF WE LOOK AT THE HOSPITAL, SO THE BAR GRAPH TELLS US NEW HOSPITAL ADMISSIONS THAT WERE COVID-RELATED. SO WE'RE SEEING A LITTLE BIT THERE MOST RECENTLY.

THEN WE'RE ALSO LOOKING AT THE LINE THAT'S TELLING US THAT SEVEN-DAY HOSPITAL PERCENTAGE.

SO ABOUT 10% RIGHT NOW WITH HOSPITALIZATIONS WOULD BE THAT 7-DAY AVERAGE FOR THE COVID RELATED. WHAT THIS DOESN'T TELL US THOUGH IS THAT WE ALSO HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE VIRGINIA HOSPITAL NETWORK AND COALITION AND WHAT'S HAPPENING THERE.

HOW MANY BEDS ARE BEING OCCUPIED. WE JUST HAVE TO LOOK BEYOND THE BASIC PERCENTAGE AND LOOK AT HOW THE BED NUMBERS CHANGE. WE HAVE TO LOOK AT HOW THE VENTILATORS CHANGE THE USE TOO. THAT'S SOMETHING WE ENGAGE IN WEEKLY CONVERSATIONS WITH THE VIRGINIA HEALTHCARE COALITION TO MAKE SURE AS A REGION AND LOCALITY THAT WE STAY UP TO DATE WITH THAT PIECE OF INFORMATION. HERE IS WHAT -- HERE JUST ONE OF A FEW OF THE MAIN MODELS OUT THERE. THIS IS COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS THE UVA MODEL OR IHHE MODEL.

ALL THE MODELS THAT WE LOOK AT TELL US -- TAKE THREE THINGS INTO CONSIDERATION.

THEY'RE LOOKING AT CONTINUING WITH THE MASK USE AND ARE PEOPLE BEING COMPLIANT WITH THE MASK USE. ALSO IF THEY EASE MANDATES IN VARIOUS AREAS, WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE MANDATES ARE EASED AND PROJECTING OFF THAT OR IF RESTRICTIONS ARE TAKEN AWAY.

YOU SEE OUR LITTLE GREEN LINE OVER THERE TO THE RIGHT-HAND SIDE OF THE SCREEN.

IF WE KEEP THE MAVENG RE MASK -- MASK MANDATE, IT'S KEEPING THE DAILY DEATHS BETTER THAN IF RESTRICTIONS WERE TAKEN AWAY. THAT'S PURELY A PROJECTION.

IF WE LOOK BACK AT SOME OF THE NUMBERS, YOU START TO SEE SCIENTISTS AND STUFF DISCUSSING, YOU KNOW, MAYBE IT'S MORE ACCURATE THAN WE ORIGINALLY THAT BUT WE DON'T KNOW AS WE CONTINUE TO MOVE FORWARD. WE CAN USE THIS AS A TOOL FOR US WORKING WITH THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND ALL COUNTY AGENCIES TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE PREPARED AS WE MOVE FORWARD FOR ANYTHING THAT COMES OUR WAY MOVING FORWARD. AGAIN, THE VARIANCE ON THE MODELS MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT TO PREDICT THE PEAK. ONE OF THE COMMON THINGS WE'RE SEEING THAT YOU'RE SEEING DISCUSSED AMONGST SOME OF THE EXPERTS IS THE FEBRUARY OF '21 TIMELINE LOOKING AT THAT. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH DATA TO SUPPORT THAT SAYING THAT'S AN ABSOLUTE, CNN, MASK WEARING CONTINUES TO BE ONE OF THE FACTORS IN THERE.

WE'LL CONTINUE SUPPORTING THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND MONITORING THE VACCINATION PREPARATIONS TAKING PLACE ALREADY. THERE IS A WEEKLY CALL WE PARTICIPATE ON ALONG WITH THE HEALTH DIRECTORS FROM THE REGION TO SEE WHERE THEY'RE GOING, WHAT MANDATES ARE COMING DOWN FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND SEEING WHAT THE STATE PLANS ON DOING AND THEN WHAT TYPE OF BURDEN AS A LOCALITY WE'D BE FACING IF TO SUPPORT THE TIER 1 VACCINATIONS WE NEED TO HAVE AND HOW TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THAT. THAT'S PROBABLY ONE OF THE BIGGEST THINGS WE'LL CONTINUE TO MONITOR AND MAKE SURE WE'RE TUNED IN WITH THAT TO MAKE SURE WE DON'T MISS ANYTHING IMPORTANT. ONE OF THE THINGS WE HAD HERE FOR A WHILE IN CORPORATION WITH FIRE IS THE LTC'S OR LONG-TERM CARE FACILITY REACH OUT AND A REGULAR CALL WITH THEM.

AND WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE PUSH THE INFORMATION THAT THEY NEED TO REGISTER TO GET SUPPORT FROM

[00:15:01]

THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND/OR FROM WALGREENS OR RITE AID, THE TWO VENDORS IDENTIFIED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO SUPPORT THOSE EFFORTS WITH VACCINATIONS AND THEIR FACILITIES.

WE USE THAT AS WELL AS DEPUTY COUNTY MANAGER SMITH CALLAHAN AND THE HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES CALL TO MAKE SURE THE INFORMATION GUESS OUT TO ALL THE PEOPLE WELL IN ADVANCE BEFORE THE DEADLINE APPROACHES. SOME OTHER EFFORTS THAT WE NEED TO TAKE PLACE TO CONTINUE TO DO AND LOOK FOR CREATIVE WAYS TO REACH THE COMMUNITY. JUST AS THE WORK SESSION THAT SARAH MENTIONED ABOUT THE AGING AND, YOU KNOW, GETTING CONNECTED TO THE COMMUNITY IN ALL DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS AND DEMOGRAPHICS IS IMPORTANT. THE CARE KIT DISTRIBUTION IS ONE OF THE THINGS WITH INFORMATION. WE WORKED CLOSELY WITH COMMUNITY REVITALIZATION AND THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH TO MAKE SURE THERE IS INFORMATION FOR PEOPLE AS TO WHY THEY'RE GETTING THE CARE KIDS. IN ADDITION COVID TESTING EVENTS CONTINUE TO TAKE PLACE WITH THE COUNTY SPONSORED BY THE RICHMOND HENRICO COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT.

ALSO GOING ON THIS TIME YOU GET OVERLAPPED WITH DIFFERENT SEASONS.

WE HAVE THE FLU SEASON THAT'S APPROACHING US. AND THE FLU VACCINATION EXERCISE IS CLINICS. THEY COMPLETED ONE AND HAD OVER 100 FOLKS THAT WENT THROUGH AND THEY HAVE ANOTHER ONE COMING UP ON THE 28TH OF THIS MONTH. WE'LL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THEM AND THE NEEDS THEY HAVE AS THEY MOVE FORWARD. I THINK ALSO JUST TO MAKE A SIDE NOTE ON THE COVID UPDATE, THE BOARD ALSO RECEIVED A LETTER FROM THE MANAGER ON OCTOBER 22 REFERENCING THE ELECTION PREPARATION. WE'RE CONTINUING TO PREPARE FOR THAT WITH ALL AGENCY STAKEHOLDERS AND VERY COMFORTABLE WHERE WE ARE WITH THE PREPARATION AS WE WORKED THROUGH DEVELOPING PLANS IN THE PLAYBOOK FOR ALL OF US TO WORK

OFF OF. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. >> ANYBODY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS

FOR JACKSON? GO AHEAD. >> JACKSON, YOUR TEAM HAS BEEN PUT TO TASK. PLEASE PASS ALONG THE THANKS OF THIS BOARD.

THANK YOU. >> YES, SIR. >> PATRICIA O'BANNON: MR. BAYNARD, ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE ELECTION, ARE THEY SPECIFIC FOR CERTAIN AREAS OF THE COUNTY OR CERTAIN POLLING PLACES? OR DO YOU JUST HAVE -- YOU'LL BE IN THE EMERGENCY OPERATIONS

CENTER AND IF SOMEONE CALLS -- >> SO THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS WE'RE THERE TOGETHER WITH THE RIGHT PEOPLE IN THE EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER SO THAT THE PLAYBOOK WE DO HAVE DEVELOPED, IT'S AN AGENCY BASED ON ACTIONS AND STRATEGIES AND TACTICS THAT THEY PLAN ON DOING.

THE STRATEGIES AND TACTICS CAN BE PUT TO PLAY IN SPECIFIC AREAS WITHIN THE COUNTY.

THERE ARE UNIQUE FEATURES AND DIFFERENT PLACES AND TENTS TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE THAT UP AND RUNNING. THE PLAYBOOK IS THERE TO ALL BE COORDINATED AND COMMUNICATING

TOGETHER. >> I THOUGHT -- I'M SORRY. I THOUGHT THE DETAIL THAT WENT INTO THAT REPORT, MS. OBANNON WAS EXCELLENT. YOU HAD THE A-TEAM FROM EVERY DEPARTMENT YOU COULD GET.'BANNO WAS EXCELLENT. YOU HAD THE A-TEAM FROM EVERY DEPARTMENT YOU COULD GET. WE HEARD FROM MR. COAKLEY AND HAVE SEEN YOUR TEAM AND WHAT THE DEPARTMENTS YOU GATHERED CAN DO. I CERTAINLY FEEL AS CONFIDENT AS WE CAN BE IN THE EFFORTS OF OUR

COUNTY STAFF. >> THANK YOU, SIR. THANK YOU, MA'AM.

>> PATRICIA O'BANNON: I WANT TO MAKE SURE THOSE WATCHING THIS REMOTELY HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT'S GOING ON. SO IF YOU WANTED TO ADD ANYTHING, THAT'S OKAY TOO.

>> THANK YOU, MA'AM. I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT THING REALLY IS THE COMMUNICATION, THE TEAM EFFORT, AND THE COLLABORATION IT WILL TAKE WITH STAKEHOLDERS AND EVERYONE IS ALREADY TAKING CARE OF THE HAND SHAKES, WORKING OUT THE DETAILS PRIOR TO GETTING TO ELECTION DAY TO MAKE SURE WE'RE SQUARED AWAY. WE'LL BEGIN DOING MORE PREPARATION ON MONDAY AS WE WARM UP THE EOC WITH FOLLOWING THROUGH AND TESTING THE PLANS TO MAKE SURE THEY'RE ALL IN LINE

WITH WHAT WE EXPECT. >> PATRICIA O'BANNON: THANK YOU. >> NO HANDSHAKES.

>> MR. NELSON, DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION? >> TYRONE NELSON: YEAH.

QUICK QUESTION. YOU MENTIONED WITH COVID THERE WAS A CURVE UP WITH CASES.

NOT MENTION BUT WE SAW IT ON THE CHART. I'M NOT SURE IF YOU -- I THOUGHT I HEARD YOU SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THERE COULD POSSIBLY BE AN INCREASE IN TESTING.

IS THERE ANY DOCUMENTATION FOR THAT? >> SO THE NUMBER OF TESTING COUNTERS, I DIDN'T WANT TO OVERLOAD WITH GRAPHS AND INFORMATION.

I CAN SEND YOU THE SLIDE THAT DOES HAVE TESTING ENCOUNTERS ON THERE.

WE DO HAVE AN INCREASE IN TESTING ENCOUNTERS IN HENRICO. >> TYRONE NELSON: OKAY.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. >> JACKSON, WE STARTED THE

REGIONAL EOC, WHAT, MARCH 5 OR 10? >> YES, SIR.

APPROXIMATELY ONE WEEK BEFORE MARCH 13. >> SO WE'RE STILL WEEKLY?

[00:20:04]

>> SO OUR EOC LOCAL IN HENRICO COUNTY, WE'RE STILL OPERATING ESSENTIALLY THE EOC WITH A LOT OF VIRTUAL COLLABORATION FROM STAKEHOLDERS. AS FAR AS THE REGIONAL EFFORT GOES WITH THE REGIONAL TEAM AND CONCEPT, THERE IS STILL A REGIONAL CALL THAT TAKES PLACE EACH WEDNESDAY MORNING AT 8:30 WITH REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE HANOVER, CITY OF RICHMOND AND CHESTERFIELD AND THE THREE RESPECTIVE HEALTH DIRECTORS JUST TO TALK THROUGH THE ISSUES WE'RE FACING AND THE COLLABORATIVE EFFORTS WE WORK ON TOGETHER AND WE DO ENGAGE IN THAT.

>> OKAY. MY FINAL IS CARE KITS. I'M GLAD YOU BROUGHT UP SARAH.

I WOULD LIKE YOU TO LOOK AT -- BECAUSE THAT'S VERY VULNERABLE COMMUNITY.

AND COLLABORATE WITH SARAH IN SEEING HOW WE CAN MAKE SURE THAT OUR ELDERLY ARE GETTING KITS IF

THEY NEED THEM. >> YES, SIR. ROB ROLLY, THE DEPUTY SPOKE WITH

SARAH AFTER THE WORK SESSION TO START ON THE EFFORT, SIR. >> THOMAS BRANIN: SHE NEEDS

HELP. >> WE GOT HER. >> THOMAS BRANIN: I SAID I'D

GIVE HER AN ARMY. >> YES, SIR. WE'RE ON BOOR.

WE'LL MARCH. >> ANYTHING ELSE FOR JACKSON? NOTHING?

MR. MANAGER. >> MR. CHAIR, MY THIRD COMMENT, WE HAVE BETH TYGAN.

THE CHIEF OF STAFF ASSISTANT SUPERVISOR. DR. CASHWELL WAS PULLED INTO A TOWN HALL. BETH IS GOING TO PROVIDE THE BIWEEKLY UPDATE FROM HCPC.

DR. TYGIN? >> GOOD EVENING, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD AND MR. MANAGER.

I AM HONORED TO BE HERE TONIGHT TO REPRESENT HENRICO COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOR DR. CASHWELL.

SHE IS SUPPORTING A TOWN HALL FOR OUR FAMILIES THIS EVENING. LAST THURSDAY EVENING OUR SCHOOL BOARD APPROVED A RETURN TO SCHOOL PLAN AND I'M EXCITED TO SHARE THAT OUR PRE-K THROUGH SECOND GRADE STUDENTS ARE SCHEDULED TO RETURN ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30.

OUR GRADE 3 THROUGH 5 STUDENTS WOULD RETURN THE FOLLOWING WEEK ON DECEMBER 7.

THEN WE'D HAVE AN ORIENTTION FOR THE SIXTH AND NINTH GRADE STUDENTS NEW TO THE SECONDARY LEVEL ON FEBRUARY 1 AND 2, AS FAR AS BEING IN THE BUILDINGS. THAT'S THE BEGINNING OF THE SEMESTER AND WE'D BRING THE STUDENTS, ALL STUDENTS GRADE 6 THROUGH 12TH BACK ON THAT THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4. AS WE CONTINU TO REPAIR -- TO PREPARE FOR OUR RETURN FOR STUDENTS, WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR THE STATE FOR PROVIDING ADDITIONAL FUNDS TO SCHOOLS REALIZING THE COST OF BRINGING STUDENTS BACK TO SCHOOL. IT'S INCREDIBLY EXPENSIVE TO DO THIS SAFELY. WE HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO HAVE SUPPORT FROM YOU ALL AS WELL THROUGH YOUR CARES ACT FUNDING. WE HAD OUR ORIGINAL ESTIMATE AND WHAT IT WOULD COST, AND, YOU KNOW, THAT WAS -- THAT IS JUST AN ESTIMATE. AT THIS POINT WE KNOW WE'RE HERE TONIGHT TO BE ABLE TO EXPLAIN ADDITIONAL FUNDING ALLOCATED FOR OUR STUDENTS AND OUR STAFF.

THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION HAS AWARDED US $175 PER STUDENT. THAT IS BASED ON OUR PROJECTED SEPTEMBER 30 ENROLLMENT NUMBERS, SO THAT IS AN ADDITIONAL $8 MILLION THAT WILL BE COMING FROM THE VDOE. IT HAS A VERY SHORT TIMELINE. IT MUST BE EXPENDED BY DECEMBER 30. TRUTHFULLY IT MUST BE ENCUMBERED BY NOVEMBER 15.

OTHERWISE IT'S RETURNED TO THE STATE. WE'LL LIKELY BE USING THIS MONEY TO MOVE FUNDING FROM -- THAT'S BEEN PREVIOUSLY SPENT SO OTHER DOLLARS CAN BE RESERVED AS WE GO FORWARD THAT HAVE A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME FOR EXPENDITURE. I'M HAPPY TO TRY TO ANSWER ANY

QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE. >> ANY QUESTIONS? >> PATRICIA O'BANNON: WHEN

EXACTLY DOES THE SECOND SEMESTER BEGIN? >> SECOND SEMESTER BEGINS FEBRUARY 1. SO WE'D USE THE FIRST TWO DAYS TO BRING BACK THE SIXTH AND NINTH GRADERS SO THEY CAN EXPERIENCE THEIR DAY ONE AND DAY TWO CLASSES BEFORE THE OTHER STUDENTS COME INTO THE BUILDING WHO HAVE MOST OF THEM BEEN THERE PREVIOUSLY.

>> PATRICIA O'BANNON: SO WHEN DOES THE FIRST SEMESTER END? WHAT DAY?

[00:25:05]

>> FEBRUARY 1. LIKE THE 28TH, I BELIEVE, OF JANUARY.

>> PATRICIA O'BANNON: JANUARY. SO THEY'LL BE DOING VIRTUAL AND ALL THAT UNTIL THEN.

>> YES, MA'AM. IT WILL TAKE A LITTLE TIME TO, YOU KNOW, SCHEDULE -- SOME OF THE SCHEDULES WILL HAVE TO BE CHANGED SO ALL THAT MASTER SCHEDULING THAT NORMALLY TAKES THROUGH THE SPRING AND SUMMER WILL DO IN BETWEEN NOW AND JANUARY SO THAT OUR STUDENTS ARE

READY TO COME IN. >> PATRICIA O'BANNON: OKAY. >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? NO? THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR OUR UPDATE THIS EVENING.

WE APPRECIATE YOU COMING IN. >> YOU'RE SO WELCOME. >> MR. CHAIRMAN, I HAVE NO OTHER COMMENTS THIS EVENING. I AM GOING TO ASK THE CHAIR AND BOARD AS DR. TYGAN IS HERE, WE HAVE AN ITEM ON THE AGENDA. 268-20 WHICH IS A RESOLUTION TO THE ANNUAL FISCAL PLAN FOR THE $8.8 MILLION SHE REFERRED TO. AS SOON AS THE BOARD IS DONE WITH BOARD COMMENTS AND RECOGNITION OF MEDIA, THE ASK IS THAT WE MOVE THAT ITEM FORWARD SO THAT DR. TYGAN CAN EXPLAIN IT TO THE BOARD WHILE SHE IS HERE. I HAVE NO OTHER COMMENTS, MR. CHAIRMAN.

>> THANK YOU. AT THIS TIME ARE THERE ANY OTHER BOARD MEMBERS THAT WOULD LIKE TO

HAVE ANY COMMENTS? >> MR. CHAIRMAN, I HAVE ONE, IF I MAY.

I HAVE A COUPLE FRIENDS I'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE THE GROUP AND ALLOW THE OPPORTUNITY TO INTRODUCE

THANK YOU. FELLAS, ON THE WAY OUT, OUR CLERK OF THE BOARD RIGHT HERE, MS. TANYA HARDING LEFT YOU GIFTS BY THE METAL DETECTORS SO REACH IN AND GRAB A BAG ON THE WAY OUT. THANK Y'ALL. ANYONE ELSE?

>> I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A COUPLE SECONDS. THERE IS AN INDUSTRY THAT IS TOUGH. IT'S A TOUGH INDUSTRY. WITH COVID IT'S BEEN EVEN TOUGHER. IN THE THREE CHOPT DISTRICT AND WEST END, THERE ARE VERY FEW PEOPLE THAT HAVEN'T STOPPED AT A RESTAURANT CALLED BOYCHICK'S DELI.

IT'S LOCATED IN INNSBROOK. IT WAS BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THEY WERE CROSSING OVER THE 30-YEAR MARK OF SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS CONTRIBUTING TO NOT JUST THE INNSBROOK AREA BUT GREATER HENRICO AND PROVIDING UNBELIEVABLE FOOD, IN MY OPINION.

SO I WOULD LIKE TO RECOGNIZE THEM. SCOTT, IF YOU'VE GOT THE WHOLE CLAN, I THINK.

CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION. IT READS BOYCHICK'S DELI FOR PROVIDING THE CITIZENS OF HENRICO COUNTY WITH EXCELLENT DINE-IN AND TAKE-OUT SERVICE SINCE OCTOBER 16, 1990.

[00:30:02]

DELI INC. OF VIRGINIA, BOYCHICK'S DELI WAS FOUNDED BY THE ALIAS FAMILY, SCOTT BECKY AND SCOTT, JR. AND HAS BEEN IN OPERATION IN INNSBROOK SHOPS FOR 30 YEARS THROUGH GOOD WEATHER, HURRICANES AND THE CURRENT COVID PANDEMIC. BOYCHICK'S CONTINUOUS SERVICE HAS CREATED A COZY HOME AWAY FROM HOME ENVIRONMENT THAT HENRICO CITIZENRY CONTINUES TO ENJOY. ON BEHALF OF HENRICO COUNTY, THANK YOU FOR CONTRIBUTING AND I'D LIKE TO PRESENT YOU WITH THIS PLAQUE.

JUST WANT TO THANK YOU GUYS FOR THAT. IT'S ALWAYS GREAT TO GET RECOGNITION. WE HAVE BEEN REALLY FORTUNATE TO BE IN HENRICO COUNTY FOR ALL THESE YEARS, AND ONE OF THE BIG THINGS THAT HENRICO COUNTY STEPPED UP AND DID THE NOURISHMENT PROGRAM WHEN COVID STARTED. IT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS.

IT WAS SO MUCH, YOU KNOW, WE GOT TO KNOW SO MANY POLICE OFFICERS AND FIRST RESPONDERS THROUGH IT.

THEY'RE STILL COMING IN NOW. WE HAVE, YOU KNOW, A BIG SUPPORT OF THE BLUE.

IT WAS REALLY BIG FOR US WHEN Y'ALL DID THAT NOURISHMENT PROGRAM.

I'M NOT SURE WHO HEADED THAT UP. GREAT JOB WITH THAT. WE'RE REALLY PROUD.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. MEANS A LOT TO US.

>> THOMAS BRANIN: SCOTT, I KNOW YOU'RE AWARE, ANY TIME THE MANAGER SAYS I NEED TO MEET BEYOU, CAN WE MEET FOR BREAKFAST, WE DON'T EVEN SAY WHERE.

WE JUST -- IT'S A TIME. SO THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING THAT YOU DO.

MR. MANAGER? >> CHAIRMAN, NOTE THE ABSENCE OF MEDIA HERE THIS EVENING.

DO YOU WANT TO MAKE ANY COMMENT? >> THOMAS BRANIN: TO ANYONE FROM THE MEDIA THAT'S CURRENTLY WATCHING US, THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING THIS EVENING AND WATCHING US AND PLEASE WRITE GOOD ARTICLES ON ALL THE GREAT THINGS WE DO HERE IN HENRICO. HOW IS THAT, MR. MANAGER?

[6. RECOGNITION OF NEWS MEDIA ]

>> YES.

MR. CHAIRMAN, WITH MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, WITH YOUR INDULGENCE, I'D ASK YOU MOVE 268-20 WHICH IS A RESOLUTION FOR AMENDMENT TO FISCAL YEAR 2021 ANNUAL FISCAL PLAN.

THESE ARE THE CARES ACT FUNDS. ITEM 4 ARE HENRICO COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

AND DR. TYGAN NOTED THE FACT THIS IS $8.8 MILLION THAT NEEDS TO BE OBLIGATED VERY SHORTLY.

I UNDERSTAND THERE IS NO ACTION NECESSARY FOR YOU TO MOVE THAT ITEM FORWARD.

SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO I'LL ASK HER TO COME UP AND ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE REGARDING

THIS FUNDING. >> LONG TIME NO SEE. >> I KNOW.

>> THOMAS BRANIN: YOU WANT TO GIVE A QUICK BREAKDOWN OF WHAT THE FUNDING AMOUNT IS AND WHAT

YOUR INTENT WOULD BE? >> THE -- AS I INDICATED PREVIOUSLY, WE'LL BE ALLOCATED $175 PER STUDENT WHICH WORKS OUT TO BE $8.8 MILLION. GIVEN THE TIMELINE TO SPEND THESE DOLLARS, WE WILL USE IT TO REIMBURSE ON EXPENSES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN PAID.

WE CAN GO BACK TO THE MARCH TIMEFRAME OF THINGS THAT WE HAVE ALREADY PURCHASED AND THAT ALLOWS FUNDS TO BE EXTENDED FOR SOME OF THE OTHER CARES ACTS DOLLARS.

IT HAS A DEADLINE OF SEPTEMBER OF 2022. SO THE ITEMS THAT THIS WOULD BE GOING FOR IS -- A TOTAL FUND, 1109 SPECIAL REVENUE IS $8 MILLION FOR OPERATING FUNDS AND

APPROPRIATIONS. >> THOMAS BRANIN: OKAY. >> MAYBE I CAN ASK THEM TO SHARE

[00:35:05]

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. WHAT THEY'LL DO IS SUPPORT REMOTE LEARNING THROUGH EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY INCLUDING THE COST OF THE HARDWARE, THE SOFTWARE, CONNECTIVITY, ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY, AND ADAPTIVE EQUIPMENT TO ADDRESS THE DIVERSE NEEDS OF OUR

STUDENTS DURING THIS CLOSURE. >> PATRICIA O'BANNON: CAN YOU GIVE AN EXAMPLE?

I HAVE NO IDEA. PLEASE GIVE AN EXAMPLE. >> ABSOLUTELY.

SO, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE PURCHASED ADDIT ADDITIONAL -- DIGITAL DEVICES FOR OUR STUDENTS. WE WERE NOT 1-1 FROM PRE-K THROUGH 12TH GRADE.

WE WERE IN GRADES 2 THROUGH 12 SO WE BOUGHT ADDITIONAL STUDENTS LIKE IPADS AND ADDITIONAL CHROMEBOOKS FOR KEPTER GARTNERS AND FIRST GRADERS. WE PROVIDED OUR FAMILIES THAT DO NOT HAVE WI-FI SO THEY CAN ACCESS THE CURRICULUM THROUGH THE DEVICE.

WE HAVE BEEN CONCERNED ABOUT THE GAPS DURING THE TIME OF SCHOOL CLOSURES STARTING BACK IN THE SPRING. SO WE PURCHASED ADAPTIVE SOFTWARE SO THAT STUDENTS CAN ASSESS EACH INDIVIDUAL STUDENT ON WHERE THEY ARE AND PROVIDE THEM WITH LESSONS AND SO ON THAT REINFORCE THE SKILLS WHERE THEY NEED THE REINFORCEMENT. IT TRULY PROVIDES AN INDIVIDUALIZED PLAN FOR THOSE STUDENTS WHEN THEY ARE WORKING INDEPENDENTLY.

THOSE ARE SOME EXAMPLES. >> THOMAS BRANIN: ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

>> I'LL TAKE A QUICK OPPORTUNITY TO SAY THANK YOU. IF YOU CAN PASS OUR MESSAGE ALONG TO DR. CASHWELL, I KNOW SHE IS GOOD BUT SHE CAN'T BE IN TWO PLACES AT ONCE.

SO IF YOU CAN PASS ALONG OUR MESSAGE OF THANKS FOR ALL THE HARD WORK, I KNOW THE DECISIONS THAT Y'ALL HAD TO MAKE HAVE NOT BEEN EASY. NONE OF THEM HAVE BEEN.

JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU. GOOD TIMING TO BE HERE WITH THREE YOUNG MEN, STUDENTS AT GLEN ALLEN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. ONE MADE A COMMENT OUTSIDE AND SAID, YOU KNOW, MY KIDS ALL WENT -- BOTH WENT THROUGH GLEN ALLEN AND SAID YOU GOT THE NICE NEW CLASSROOMS IN THE BACK TOO.

THEY SAID, WHEN WE GET BACK IN THERE WE WILL. YOU CAN SEE IN FRONT OF YOU THE RESULT OF GETTING SOME OF THE KIDS BACK SAFELY INTO THE ENVIRONMENT WHERE THEY CAN

REALLY REENGAGE. >> THANK YOU. I'LL SHARE THAT.

>> WHEN DID THIS MONEY COME AVAILABLE FROM THE STATE? >> IT WAS IN A MEMO THAT CAME

OUT ABOUT -- I WANT TO SAY THREE WEEKS AGO MAYBE. >> THREE WEEKS AGO.

>> IT WAS OCTOBER 9. >> THOMAS BRANIN: OCTOBER 9. >> THERE IS A BUT THERE, SIR.

THIS MONEY WAS APPROPRIATED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MONTHS AGO.

THIS MONEY HAS BEEN SITTING AT THE STATE. OUR FIRST APPROPRIATION OF CARES ACT FUNDING WOULD HAVE MATCHED WHEN THIS MONEY WAS AVAILABLE. SO DR. TYGAN IS RIGHT.

WE HAVE LITERALLY UNTIL NOVEMBER 15 TO OBLIGATE THESE FUNDS. WHAT THE SCHOOLS WILL LARGELY TRY TO DO IS MAKE -- REIMBURSE THEMSELVES FOR CERTAIN EXPENSES THAT OCCURRED.

>> THOMAS BRANIN: SO THE FIRST CARES -- AND MR. MANAGER CAN PROBABLY ASK THIS.

THE FIRST CARES MONEY THAT WE PUT FORTH TO SCHOOLS WAS NINE AND THEN WE DID 15 AND THIS IS ANOTHER 8.8. SO WE'RE LOOKING AROUND 32 OR $33 MILLION TO ASSIST SCHOOLS.

>> THAT'S CORRECT. >> THOMAS BRANIN: OKAY. SO THAT MONEY WENT TO THE STATE

FOR THEIR ALLOCATION TO SCHOOLS. ANY IDEA WHEN? >> WELL, GO AHEAD, BETH.

>> I WAS GOING TO SAY THE ORIGINAL WAS BACK IN THE MAY TIMEFRAME, I BELIEVE.

>> MAY 5. >> THOMAS BRANIN: AND THEY JUST NOW RELEASED IT.

WHAT ARE THEY DOING? DO YOU KNOW? >> I THINK SOME OF IT IS WHAT THEY HAVE DONE IS MONEY THAT WAS ALLOCATED FOR CERTAIN THINGS AND WASN'T EXPENDED HAS BEEN REPOOLED AND THEN IT'S BEING REALLOCATED. JUST LIKE ON NOVEMBER 15, ANY MONEY THAT IS NOT ALLOCATED, WE HAVE TO SUBMIT BACK TO THE STATE I'M SURE IT WILL GO OUT TO SOMEONE WHO IS, YOU KNOW, SPEND IT BEFORE THE DECEMBER 30 DEADLINE.

>> THOMAS BRANIN: IT'S JUST MIND-BOGGLING THAT -- >> I DON'T KNOW THAT FOR SURE.

THAT'S JUST MY ASSUMPTION. >> THOMAS BRANIN: OKAY. THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER COMMENTS, QUESTIONS? THEN I'LL ENTERTAIN A MOTION. >> MOVE THE RESOLUTION.

[00:40:07]

>> PATRICIA O'BANNON: SECOND. >> THOMAS BRANIN: MOTION BY MR. SCHMITT AND SECOND BY MS. O'BANNON. ALL IN FAVOR SAY AYE. ALL OPPOSED?

THAT RESOLUTION CARRIES, MR. MANAGER. >> YES, MR. CHAIRMAN.

THE NEXT THREE ITEMS AS WE MOVE INTO THE PUBLIC HEARING ITEMS. 224-20, 265-20, AND 266-20.

MR. CHARLIE IS GOING TO GUIDE THE BOARD THROUGH ALL THREE OF THESE ITEMS THAT INVOLVE REAL PROPERTY. CHA CHARLIE?

[7a. 264-20 Resolution - Signatory Authority - Quitclaim of Portion of Utility Easement - Middleton Place - Brookland District. ]

>> THANK YOU, MR. MANAGER. GOOD EVENING, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD AND MR. CHAIRMAN.

THE FIRST ITEM IS 264-20. THIS IS A RESOLUTION WHICH WILL AUTHORIZE THE CHAIRMAN TO EXECUTE A QUIT CLAIM DEED RELEASING THE COUNTY'S INTEREST IN AN UNNEEDED PORTION OF EASEMENT ACROSS PROPERTY AT MID8TEN PLACE. THE OWN -- MIDDLETON PLACE.

THE OWNER, HUNDREDRY ROAD LLC REQUESTED THE ACTION. THERE ARE NO FACILITIES IN THE EASEMENT AREA. THE COUNTY DOES NOT NEED THE PORTION TO BE QUIT CLAIMED AND AN EASEMENT HAS BEEN DEDICATED TO THE COUNTY. THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC UTILITIES AND PLANNING AND ACTING DIRECTOR OF REAL PROPERTY RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF THIS COUNTY.

AND I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. >> THOMAS BRANIN: ANY QUESTIONS FOR CHARLIE? HEARING NONE, THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING ITEM.

IS THERE ANYONE IN THE AUDIENCE THIS EVENING THAT WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK TO, FOR OR AGAINST THIS RESOLUTION? SEEING NONE, IF THERE IS ANYONE THAT IS FOLLOWING US ON THE INTERNET AND IS ON WEBEX, YOU AGAIN, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK FOR ANY PUBLIC COMMENT OR PUBLIC HEARING, YOU CAN GO ON HENRICO.USSUPERVISORS.

COULD YOU TALK ABOUT THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY AND HOW THIS SORT OF THING -- YOU'RE NOT A BANK. SO HOW DOES THIS SORT OF THING COME ABOUT THROUGH THE ECONOMIC

DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY? >> YES, MA'AM. BE HAPPY TO TO DO THAT.

IT'S A SEPARATE UNIT OF GOVERNMENT. THE BOARD IS APPOINTED BY THIS BOARD, A 10-MEMBER BOARD WITH TWO MEMBERS REPRESENTING EACH OF THE COUNTY'S FIVE DISTRICTS.

ONE OF THE ALLOWANCES UNDER VIRGINIA LAW IS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITIES CAN ISSUE BONDS FOR NON-PROFITS. SUCH AS WESTMINSTER CANTERBURY AND THESE BONDS TEND TO BE AT A LOWER INTEREST RATE. WITH THE ISSUANCE OF $75 MILLION EVEN IN THE LOW INTEREST RATE ENVIRONMENT, THESE BONDS ENABLE THEM TO SECURE MONEY AT THE LOWEST POSSIBLE INTEREST RATE AND THE CONDUIT IS TO GO THROUGH THE COUNTY'S ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY TO DO

THAT. >> PATRICIA O'BANNON: AND IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA, THE WORD AUTHORITY HAS WEIGHT. THERE IS A REASON YOU'RE CALLED AN AUTHORITY.

>> YES, MA'AM. WE'RE CERTAINLY PART OF THE COUNTY FAMILY AND CERTAINLY CONSIDER OURSELVES PART OF THE COUNTY FAMILY UNDER VIRGINIA LAW.

WE'RE A SEPARATE UNIT OF GOVERNMENT AND GOVERNED BY A WHOLE SET OF ADDITIONAL REGULATIONS WHICH ENABLES THE EDA TO BE THE CONDUIT FOR THESE BONDS.

>> PATRICIA O'BANNON: I MEANT THE WORD -- WHEN YOU HEAR THE WORD AUTHORITY ATTACHED TO THE

RICHMOND METROPOLITAN AUTHORITY, THEY'RE A UNIT OF GOVERNMENT. >> YES, MA'AM.

>> PATRICIA O'BANNON: A DIFFERENT UNIT OF GOVERNMENT. OK

OKAY. >> THOMAS BRANIN: ANYTHING ELSE? THANK YOU SO MUCH, SIR.
