             solid waste management and recycling.

                    Mr. Sheffey noted that the state had given the NRRA very high
             marks. Mr. Akers inquired if there were any plans to open shredding
             operations. Mr. Levine stated the NRRA is reviewing this matter.

d.     Share the Road Signs Consistent with County Bike Route Plan

              The following information was reported in the Board packet: As a
       result of various cycling accidents, comments from similar signs put up by
       the Town of Pulaski and increased cycling (and scooter) activity with the
       increase in fuel prices, staff have asked VDOT to consider placement of
       approximately a dozen “Share the Road” signs primarily along the
       BikeCentennial 76 route.

             Mr. Clarke agreed to review this matter and provide additional
       information at a future meeting.

         On a motion by Mr. Akers, seconded by Mr. Pratt and carried, the
  Board approved the following resolution opposing state VDOT funding
  cuts and impact on safety issues on Exit 94:

               WHEREAS, an efficient transportation network is crucial to
        sustainable economic growth in the Commonwealth, a cleaner
        environment and enhanced public safety and quality of life; and

              WHEREAS, the Commonwealth faces a documented
        transportation funding shortfall including a recurring and inflating
        road maintenance funding shortfall resulting in the Commonwealth
        Transportation Board eliminating and reducing programmed project
        spending totaling $1.1 billion in the new six-year transportation
        program; and

               WHEREAS, the Virginia Department of Transportation is
        transferring almost $400 million in Fiscal Year 2008 from road
        construction funds to support road maintenance activities; and

               WHEREAS, the eliminated and stalled project monies include
        primary, urban, and secondary construction funding reductions to
        regions and localities of up to 44 percent for Fiscal Year 2009; and

               WHEREAS, funding for new highway and bridge construction
        is diminished as the annual road maintenance shortfall continues to
        escalate and the estimate to repair the Commonwealth’s 1,700
        deficient bridges totals more than $3 billion; and

              WHEREAS, regions of economic importance to the
        Commonwealth, including Hampton Roads and Northern Virginia,
        confront major transportation funding challenges in addition to those
        shared by all other areas of the Commonwealth; and
BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MEETING MINUTES OF JUNE 23, 2008



               WHEREAS, transferring state general funds to transportation
        neither    adequately     supports   documented      and    recurring
        transportation infrastructure investment needs, nor serves to protect
        the Commonwealth’s additional core services including public
        education, health care, mental health and retardation, and public
        safety; and

               WHEREAS, Virginia has the nation’s seventh lowest motor
        vehicle sales tax rate and the Commonwealth last enacted dedicated,
        new, significant and recurring annual statewide revenues for
        transportation in 1986, including the last increase in Virginia’s
        modestly low gas tax rate of 17.5 cents per gallon; and

                WHEREAS, since 2006 the Commonwealth has enacted
        significant reforms to improve the coordination between
        transportation and local land-use planning;

                NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the County of
        Pulaski hereby calls on the Governor of Virginia and the Virginia
        General Assembly during the forthcoming transportation special
        session to enact a significant transportation funding package to
        include dedicated, new, significant and recurring annual revenues to
        address     the    Commonwealth’s      documented     transportation
        infrastructure needs.

                AND, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Governor of
        Virginia and the Virginia General Assembly are urged to enact
        dedicated, new, significant and recurring annual revenues to
        eliminate the road maintenance shortfall; increase funding directed
        to interstate and primary highways, urban and secondary roads, and
        transit projects; guard against the transfer of general funds to
        transportation; and address the unique transportation needs of
        specific regions of the Commonwealth including initially Hampton
        Roads and Northern Virginia.

              Voting yes: Mr. Akers, Mr. Conner, Mr. Sheffey, Mr. Bopp,
                           Mr. Pratt.

                      Mr. Hiss provided information regarding the plan summarizing the
             following information which was reported in the Board packet: In
             January, the Chamber, County, and both Towns, with the help of the
             Virginia Tourism Corp., pulled together a wide variety of Tourism
             stakeholders from both the public and private sector to develop a county
             tourism plan. The plan includes a listing of the County's tourism assets,
             target customers, tourism strengths and weaknesses, a tourism mission
             and vision statement, and most importantly goals, objectives, and
             initiatives. The four goals are centered around preserving the character of
             the county, increasing economic development, improving the quality of
             life, and instilling cooperation among communities, Towns, and the
             County. Most of the objectives and initiatives are no to low direct costs
             except for developing and expanding marketing efforts and potentially
             compensating the Chamber for additional tourism related personnel as
             funds become available.

                              Transportation Funding

                          WHEREAS, an efficient transportation network is crucial to
                   sustainable economic growth in the Commonwealth, a cleaner
                   environment and enhanced public safety and quality of life; and

                         WHEREAS, the Commonwealth faces a documented
                   transportation funding shortfall including a recurring and inflating
                   road maintenance funding shortfall resulting in the Commonwealth
                   Transportation Board eliminating and reducing programmed project
                   spending totaling $1.1 billion in the new six-year transportation
                   program; and
BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MEETING MINUTES OF JUNE 23, 2008



              WHEREAS, the Virginia Department of Transportation is
       transferring almost $400 million in Fiscal Year 2008 from road
       construction funds to support road maintenance activities; and

              WHEREAS, the eliminated and stalled project monies
       include primary, urban, and secondary construction funding
       reductions to regions and localities of up to 44 percent for Fiscal
       Year 2009; and

               WHEREAS, funding for new highway and bridge
       construction is diminished as the annual road maintenance shortfall
       continues to escalate and the estimate to repair the
       Commonwealth’s 1,700 deficient bridges totals more than $3
       billion; and

              WHEREAS, regions of economic importance to the
       Commonwealth, including Hampton Roads and Northern Virginia,
       confront major transportation funding challenges in addition to
       those shared by all other areas of the Commonwealth; and

              WHEREAS,        transferring state  general  funds  to
       transportation neither adequately supports documented and
       recurring transportation infrastructure investment needs, nor
       serves to protect the Commonwealth’s additional core services
       including public education, health care, mental health and
       retardation, and public safety; and

              WHEREAS, Virginia has the nation’s seventh lowest motor
       vehicle sales tax rate and the Commonwealth last enacted
       dedicated, new, significant and recurring annual statewide
       revenues for transportation in 1986, including the last increase in
       Virginia’s modestly low gas tax rate of 17.5 cents per gallon; and

               WHEREAS, since 2006 the Commonwealth has enacted
       significant reforms to improve the coordination between
       transportation and local land-use planning;

              NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Pulaski
       County Board of Supervisors hereby calls on the Governor of
       Virginia and the Virginia General Assembly during the forthcoming
       transportation special session to enact a significant transportation
       funding package to include dedicated, new, significant and
       recurring annual revenues to address the Commonwealth’s
       documented transportation infrastructure needs.
     BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MEETING MINUTES OF JUNE 23, 2008


                     AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Governor of
             Virginia and the Virginia General Assembly are urged to enact
             dedicated, new, significant and recurring annual revenues to
             eliminate the road maintenance shortfall; increase funding directed
             to interstate and primary highways, urban and secondary roads,
             and transit projects; guard against the transfer of general funds to
             transportation; and address the unique transportation needs of
             specific regions of the Commonwealth including initially Hampton
             Roads and Northern Virginia.

n.     Unsafe Structure Ordinance

             The Board approved scheduling a public hearing for the July Board
       meeting for the purpose of hearing comments regarding the adoption of

            The Board approved the sponsorship of $500 by PEP towards the
       Chamber Golf Tournament.

p.     Scheduling of Public Hearing to Consider Inoperative Vehicle

              Mr. Pratt requested staff continue to work on this ordinance and
       provide an update at the August Board meeting.

q.     Grant Addressing Child Abuse

              The Board approved partnership in authorizing a joint federal grant
       addressing child abuse through evidenced based home visitation
       programs, with grant funds and the related match would be split with
       one-third paid by Giles County and two-thirds paid by Pulaski County
       generally matching the relative population of each county (the total
       required match is 10% up to $50,000).

e.     Rt. 11 Landscaping

             The Board approved the landscaping plan as presented, with a
       copy of plan and proposed signage filed with the records of this meeting.

f.     Resolution to Provide Local Aid to the Commonwealth

               The Board approved the following resolution, based on a need by
       the Virginia Association of Counties, with said resolution to be sent to
       legislators requesting support:
         BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MEETING MINUTES OF JUNE 23, 2008


                      Resolution to Provide Local Aid to the Commonwealth

                          WHEREAS, the General Assembly chose to respond to
                   shrinking revenue growth by shifting to local governments the
                   responsibility for reducing $100.0 million of core services; and

                          WHEREAS, the Governor signed into law this $100.0 million
                   appropriation reduction for local governments in the 2008-2010
                   biennium without identifying the programs to be reduced; and

                           WHEREAS, these reductions are in addition to those made
                   by the General Assembly and approved by the Governor affecting
                   law enforcement, elementary and secondary education, profits
                   from the Alcoholic Beverage Control Enterprise Fund and
                   distributions of wine liter tax collections, constitutional offices, the
                   upgrade of wastewater treatment facilities in conformance with
                   water quality standards and goals, and farmland preservation to
                   name but a few; and

                          WHEREAS, the $100.0 million reduction will likely be
                   carried forward into future biennia forcing city and county
                   governments to choose between raising taxes or reducing services;

                           NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT, the Pulaski
                   County Board of Supervisors does hereby support the recording of
                   this intergovernmental revenue reduction from the Commonwealth
                   as Local Aid to the Commonwealth; and

                          BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT, this recording on all
                   financial records shall be shared with the delegation, the Governor
                   and local news media so that citizens understand the decisions
                   made by this governing body in response to the Commonwealth’s
                   choice to delegate their constitutional obligation to local
                   governments.
