By William J. Des Rochers, Fluvanna Field Representative
Fluvanna’s supervisors returned from their August break with water and personnel very much on their mind. Both were discussed in a closed session after the September 1st meeting. According to information obtained by the Free Enterprise Forum, the Board of Supervisors can no longer count on a cooperative water venture with Louisa County.
Instead, if the Board wants to bring water to Zion Crossroads, it will have to do so unilaterally, or in a cooperative venture with the private sector. These options still are under active consideration.
Supervisors also need to select a new county administrator. Currently, the county has retained an interim administrator, Frank Pleva. Mr. Pleva and three other candidates are the finalists and will be interviewed on September 8th. A decision is expected this month, perhaps by the September 15th meeting.
In other business, the Board agreed to return some $417,000 in unspent FY2011 funds to the school administration. This unusual procedure was agreed to as part of negotiations for the FY 2011 budget. Supervisors declined to return an additional $109,000 to various other departments.
Supervisor Gene Ott also announced that Senator Mark Warner will visit the county on September 9th and will meet residents at the county library at 3:00 pm.
