LAKE MONTICELLO — The Lake Monticello Owner’s Association Board of Directors has approved a letter to send to the Fluvanna Board of Supervisors prior to the Sept. 18 supervisor meeting.
The letter has not been received by the supervisor chairman Shaun Kenney (Columbia District) as of noon Wednesday. It was reportedly sent via facsimile to county administration.
The letter includes three points the LMOA Board of Directors requests from the Board of Supervisors:
- What is the cost-benefit impact on tax increases for Fluvanna County residents for each proposal?
- What are the implications for giving Louisa County eminent domain over Fluvanna County land?
- What is the exact economic growth meter that the Fluvanna Board of Supervisors is using to gauge impact of Fluvanna businesses?
The letter than has an enclosure by director Mike Harrison, dated Sept. 11. Harrison was not in attendance of the Sept. 12 LMOA Board of Directors special session and sent his letter as his only statement. The board collectively agreed the letter was well written and should be included with the resolution.
The enclosure includes questions for both the public-private partnership with Aqua America and the James River Water Authority plans with Louisa County. It frequently confuses previous plans discussed three years ago with the current plans. For instance, the currently discussed JRWA plans do not come near LMOA land nor include a Pleasant Grove treatment plant.
The Board of Directors requested all action on either plan be suspended “until this information has been made available and fully investigated and discussed in a public forum.”
The Fluvanna supervisors are planning to vote on the JRWA at the Sept. 18 meeting. There will be a public hearing for the Aqua America proposal. A vote of acceptance has to wait 30 days after the hearing. The supervisors could vote to reject the proposal.
The Sept. 18 meeting will be held in the Fluvanna County High School Auditorium.
