             The Greene County Board of Supervisors met to discuss a sparse agenda on Tuesday May 26, 2009.  The Board considered and approved two motions arising from their discussions in Executive Session. The Board nominated Larry Tate to the Rappahannock Service Authority Board. The Board also awarded a contract to begin work on Well Number 1 to Vess Excavating Company. 

             Moving on to the public session the Board heard from Jonathan Hensley, Steering Committee Chairman of the Greene County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. He provided an overview of the homes being built in Greene County as well as insight into Habitat’s fundraising efforts.

             There were no Matters from the Public so the Board moved quickly to approve the consent agenda. Included in the consent agenda were a resolution declaring the intent of the County to reimburse itself from the proceeds of tax-exempt bonds for water and wastewater system improvements; a resolution to accept and appropriate $18,264 in grant funds from the Byrne Justice Assistance Grant for the Commonwealth’s Attorney Office; and authorization to apply for grant funding on behalf of the Greene County Rescue Squad.

             Finally, in Other Matters from the Board, S. Catalano reported that the Emergency Services was interested obtaining Public Service Officer Status for its volunteers. The program is State funded and provides benefits to volunteers if they are injured or killed in the line of duty.  J. Allen reported on the Planning Commission Meeting and noted that C. Schmitt has been nominated to be Chairman of the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission Board.
