I1 <br /> MINUTES OF REGULAR MEETING OF LEESBURG TOWN COUNCIL, JANUARY 11, 1978. <br /> A regular meetingof the Leesburg Town Council was held in the <br /> Council Chambers, 10 West Loudoun Street, Leesburg, Virginia, on <br /> January 11, 1978. .. The meeting was called to order by the Mayor at <br /> 7 : 37 P.M. , with the invocation being given by Mr. Bange, and fol- <br /> lowed with the Salute to the Flag. Present were: Mayor Mary Anne <br /> Newman, Councilmembers Charles E. Bange, Glen P. Cole, Stanley D. <br /> Herrell, Jr. , James A. Rock, C. Terry Titus and John W. Tolbert, Jr. ; <br /> also Town Manager John Niccolls, Assistant to the Manager Jeffrey H. <br /> Minor and Town Attorney George M. Martin. <br /> The minutes of December 14, 1977 were corrected on Page 356, <br /> Resolution 77-219, by Mr. Titus, who did not vote• on this resolution. <br /> The minutes of this meeting were approved, as corrected. The minutes <br /> of a special meeting of December 15, 1977 and a public hearing of De- <br /> cember 21, 1977 were approved as written. <br /> Mr. Dick Frizzell, President of Health Care Medical Facilities, <br /> Blacksburg, appeared before Council seeking a commitment for water <br /> and sewer for a proposed nursing home on Morven Park Road. They <br /> took an option on the land in 1976 and were given a letter by the <br /> Town at that time stating that water and sewer would be available, <br /> this, of course, being before the water shortage. A Certificate <br /> of Need has been issued to them by the State Health Department and <br /> plans were submitted to HUD in 1977. They now have a firm commit- <br /> ment from HUD. and they must exercise that commitment by March 1st_. . <br /> The Health Department has sent a letter to the Town stating that <br /> they have no objection to Council granting this connection. This <br /> would be a good clean industry for the town - it would employ ap- <br /> proximately 110 people and project over $1, 000, 000 into the Town' s <br /> economy. They would not need this water until July of 1979 - they <br /> must have a building permit and the- water and sewer commitment by <br /> March 1st. He also stressed that there is a move afoot to re-allocate <br /> these beds to Northern Virginia if they are not used by this facility. <br /> Mayor Newman explained that the resolution adopted in June of 1975 <br /> by the then Council was in favor of "Manor Care" being provided with <br /> water and sewer, along with a provision that construction be commended <br /> within one year of approval of the- resolution. This time came and <br /> went and nothing was done, so it would seem that Council will be <br /> considering a new item here. This matter was discussed briefly, <br /> with Councilmembers asking questions- of Mr, Frizzell. Mayor Newman <br /> said no decision can be made tonight, but this item will be on the <br /> Workshop Agenda for next Wednesday night. Mr. Niccolls asked that <br /> Mr. Frizzell furnish a copy of the HUD documents and tell the Town <br /> just what this deadline means. <br /> Mr. Frank Raflo exhibited to the Council two proposed Zoning <br /> Maps for the County and said that the Board of Supervisors has been <br /> Crying for the past 18 months to get- a map that corresponds to the <br /> County' s Comprehensive Plan. He requested that members of Council <br /> meet with representatives of the County to discuss the area around <br /> the Town before the Planning Commission proceeds further. Mayor <br /> Newman set a special workshop on this matter for January 23rd at <br /> 7 : 30 P.M. , with Mr. Raflo to make arrangements for a meeting place. <br /> Public Hearing on Proposed Amendments to Sections 15-9 and 19-18 of <br /> the Town Code. <br /> A public hearingonproposed amendments •to Sections 15-9 and <br /> 19618 of the Town Code was held at this time. -. The Notice of Hearing <br /> and the proposed additions to Sec. 15-9, Sewer, and 19-18, Water, <br /> were read by the Clerk. There were no proponents or opponents to <br /> - be heard on these amendments and- no comments by councilmembers, thus <br /> the public hearing was closed by the Mayor. <br /> 78-0-1 - Ordinance - Amending Section- 10-171 of the Town Code re <br /> Parking Meter Zones. <br /> On motion of Mr. Herrell, seconded by Mr. Tolbert, the following <br /> ordinance was proposed: <br /> ORDAINED by the Council of the Town of Leesburg, Virginia, <br /> as follows: <br />
