Supervisors wary of proposed tax increase on data centers By Jonathan Hunley Times Staff Writer

Prince William supervisors are scheduled to approve a county budget and tax rates for the next fiscal year April 24, but it was unclear as of press time how they might act on the most controversial tax proposal of the budget season. That’s a plan by Board of County

Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart to nearly triple the property tax rate on “programmable computer equipment,” a change primarily aimed at data centers. Stewart, R-At Large, has noted that the county’s property tax rate for computer equipment — $1.25 per $100 in assessed value — is just a fraction of the tax rate county residents pay on personal property such

as cars and trucks --$3.70 per $100. So Stewart wants to raise the computer property tax rate to $3.70, too. The county decreased this tax rate more than two decades ago in an effort to draw high-tech firms, and later data centers, to Prince William. But now that that market is established, Stewart wants to bring the rate back up, a change that could generate about $19.2 million in revenue.

At least two of his fellow supervisors, however, don’t agree. Board of Supervisors Vice Chairman Marty Nohe, R-Coles, said he won’t vote to raise the tax on technology, and he noted he has been against the idea since Stewart proposed it. Aiming a tax at data centers targets an industry that pays a lot in See DATA CENTERS, Page 4

‘He was truly Semper Fi’ Quantico loses town councilman in motorcycle crash By Jonathan Hunley and Jill Palermo Times Staff Writers

The Town of Quantico has announced “with great sadness” the death of Councilman Jerre S. Thomas, who died Friday as a result of a motorcycle crash the day before on Interstate 95. Thomas, 57, a retired U.S. Marine Corps master sergeant, was heading north on I-95 when he was struck by a Honda Civic at about 8:15 a.m. on the morning of Thursday, April 12. Thomas was ejected from his motorcycle

New environmental research, education complex opens at Belmont Bay The new Potomac Science Center, an environmental research and education complex on Belmont Bay in Woodbridge, is officially open, and research is already being done inside the 50,000-square-foot building on the Occoquan River. The waterfront center, George Mason University’s newest facility, is home to the Potomac Environmental Research and Education Center, or PEREC, which will occupy much of the building. There are wet labs for teaching and research, lecture rooms, offices, a spatial-analysis laboratory and a library resource center. And, of course, there is the Occoquan River. Peggy Agouris, the dean of College of Science at George Mason University, spoke at a recent dedication ceremony and said scientists at the center would be working to develop a “greater understanding of the ecological conditions of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.” Scientists working at the center will focus on restoration of the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay, global climate change, suburban sustainability and management of natural ecosystems, according to a university press release.  The center will also welcome high school students from across the region who are interested in science, said George Mason University President Ángel Cabrera. He went on to say PEREC scientists would be im-

They are totally connected to the environment around them and to the communities around them. We are going to inspire new generations of scientists. You’re going to see great stuff happen in this incredible facility,” Cabrera said.

Prince William Board of County Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart also spoke at the dedication and said the science center couldn’t have happened without collaboration all around. “The science center here truly is a testament to the great cooperation on many levels of government, the state government, the federal government and the local community here in Prince William County, the local board of supervisors,” said Stewart, R-At Large. “This is also a public-private partnership, and an academic partnership, as well, with George Mason University. We want to thank you for bringing this to Prince William County.” Prince William Supervisor Frank Principi said the science center would further science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, programs in Prince William County. “We also see this center as an investment in the STEM education curriculum in the area. The award-winning K through 12 program that are already being offered by George Mason will continue to

spark our children’s interest in science,” said Principi, D-Woodbridge. Jeff Kaczmarek, the director of the Prince William County Department of Economic Development, said the center is a boon to the county. “The Potomac Science Center is a tremendous asset to not only Prince William County, but the entire greater Washington metropolitan region. The center is viewed as a key building block in growing technology business clusters, STEM activities, workforce development and more, and we looking forward to supporting its full potential.” Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) said the center would have a wide-ranging impact. “I am so honored to be here with you today on this very special occasion, this dedication of a wonderful facility that really is going to not only bring us into a much brighter future but leave a lasting legacy here in Prince William County, but really across the commonwealth and I believe, ultimately, throughout the country,” Fairfax said. – From Prince William County

Woodbridge brothers killed in boating accident Staff reports The victims of a fatal boating accident on the Potomac River have been identified as two brothers from Woodbridge. The bodies of Fermin Alvarado, 45, and Matias Alvarado-Arrue, 31, both of Woodbridge, were recovered from the Potomac River on Sunday, April 15, after their 15-foot bass boat capsized in 47-degree water about a mile south of Leesylvania State Park. The accident was witnessed about noon by the crew of a tug boat mooring near Cockpit Point. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources Police Department, one of several agencies that participated in the hours-long search for the men, identified the victims Monday morning. The bodies have been taken to the medical examiner’s office in Baltimore for autopsies, according to the

One man was sitting in a parked car while the other was outside the car when the transaction took place, according to a Prince William County police press release. Sometime during the exchange, the man in the car began to drive away. The man outside the car “dove into the vehicle through an open window then stabbed the driver, a 23-year-old male, with a knife,” the press release said. The driver, who was also armed with knife, then stabbed his attacker in the upper body. The parties eventually separated, and the vehicle drove away, the press release said.

Detectives with the Violent Crimes Bureau obtained an arrest warrant for Jeremy Marshall Compton, 27, of the 1600 block of James Madison Highway. He was being held without bond Friday. Additional charges are pending. The investigation continues.

The flames were quickly brought under control, but the home sustained extensive damage, Prince William Fire and Rescue Assistant Chief Matt Smolsky said Friday, and the injured firefighter was transported to a local medical facility.

Supervisors wary of proposed tax increase on data centers DATA CENTERS, from Page 1 taxes and requires very little in government services while paying employees well, he said. “They really are the goose that laid the golden egg,” Nohe said. And though the tax would generate a lot of money in the first year, revenue would go down later as new investment would come to a halt, he said. That could even mean another tax eventually would have to be raised to cover the cost of providing basic county services. “That’s just a lack of long-term vision,” Nohe said. He also said Prince William shouldn’t raise taxes on technology used by virtually all businesses at a time when the county also says it wants to attract more companies here to boost overall commercial tax receipts. So, he said, tripling the tax would

be the “best way to kill all economic development” in the county. Supervisor Jeanine Lawson, R-Brentsville, is also against upping the tax. “It’s a short-sighted plan,” she said. From 2010 to 2017, total tax revenue from data centers grew 612 percent, from $3.6 million to $25.7 million, Lawson said, pointing to figures from the county’s finance department. So, she said, Prince William should stay the course and continue to enjoy the growth and revenue that comes from the industry. Other supervisors hadn’t staked out a position last week. For example, Supervisor Frank Principi, D-Woodbridge, said he hadn’t made up his mind on the proposed tax increase. He said he’s learned more about the industry while studying the is-

sue, but he still had questions such as what the new revenue would pay for and whether the real-estate tax rate would be lowered in conjunction with the plan. “Tough decisions, all around,” he said of the budget-and-tax discussion. Supervisor Ruth Anderson, R-Occoquan, also hadn’t made up her mind when contacted. “I am still busy analyzing all the aspects of this,” she said. She noted that the business community is “really fighting” Stewart’s proposal, and the participation at a public hearing April 10 backs up that point. Nearly half of the speakers that night argued that an increase is bad for data centers and businesses in general. Anderson said that the computer tax rate does look low in the abstract. “But,” she said, “that is how we drew many of those companies toward us.”

Supervisor Pete Candland, R-Gainesville, meanwhile, said he believes the tax should be increased but he’s not sure by how much. And he would want to see corresponding moves with other taxes: a reduction in the general real-estate tax and/or an increase in the threshold required for companies to pay the business-license tax. Right now, if a company’s revenues are less than $500,000, they don’t pay that tax. But Candland said if the threshold was raised to $1 million, it would mean more than 80 percent of businesses in the county wouldn’t have to pay. He also pointed out that the technology tax hasn’t gone up in years while other tax rates have. “We’re considering it,” he said of the issue. Reach Jonathan Hunley at jhunley@fauquier.com

Technology tax, lagging teacher pay draw critics to county budget hearing By Jonathan Hunley Times Staff Writer

Don’t raise the technology tax. That was the message from nearly half of the 18 speakers April 10 at a public hearing on the $3.1 billion Prince William budget County Executive Chris Martino proposes for the fiscal year that begins July 1. Martino’s budget would be funded by maintaining the current real-estate tax rate of $1.125 per $100 in assessed value, but average annual tax bills would still rise about $146 next year, thanks largely to rising real-estate values. However, the real-estate tax rate wasn’t what was most talked about Tuesday. That was a proposal by Board of County Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart to nearly triple the property-tax rate on “programmable computer equipment,” a change primarily aimed at data centers. Stewart, R-At Large, has pointed out the county’s property-tax rate for computer equipment, at $1.25 per $100 in assessed value, is lower than the personal-property tax rate of $3.70 per $100 that residents pay for their cars and trucks. Stewart has proposed raising the technology tax rate to match the personal-property rate --$3.70 per

$100 in assessed value – as it is in other jurisdictions. The county cut its computer-property tax rate more than 20 years ago to draw hightech firms, and later data centers, to Prince William. But now that that market is established, Stewart thinks it’s time to bring the rate back up, a change that could generate as much as $20 million in revenue. That doesn’t sit well with Josh Levi, vice president of policy for the Northern Virginia Technology Council, though. Prince William has built a reputation as a competitive location for data centers due in large part to the affordable technology-tax rate, he said Tuesday, and tripling it would impact current data centers as well hurt efforts to recruit technology businesses. “Many data centers that are already in this county are actively planning to grow and expand their investments and tax base here, some quite substantially,” Levi said. “We believe this proposal would harm those efforts” if approved. In addition, other localities have recently cut their technology-tax rates to try to attract data centers, he said, so Prince William would hurt its competitiveness by increasing its rate. Betty Dean, chair-elect of the Prince William Chamber of Commerce, also spoke against the technology tax, say-

Teacher protest: A group of Prince William County teachers protested outside the Prince William Board of Supervisors meeting April 10. The teachers are advocating for cost-of-living raises to keep the county’s teacher pay competitive with surrounding jurisdictions.

ing data centers have accounted for 92 percent of new capital investment in the county since 2012. But, she said, the technology tax impacts not just data centers but nearly every business, “from the IT company with two employees and 100 computers, to the auto-repair shop whose 30 technicians each have a laptop backed by servers and routers, to restaurants tracking orders and physicians tracking patients.” Also, Dean said, the supervisors for years have emphasized a desire to attract businesses with high-paying jobs. But those businesses have to equip employees with technology. “The additional taxes you are considering will disincent not just investments in new technology, but new jobs,” Dean said. Stewart, however, wasn’t swayed by any of the speakers or their arguments. “I’ve heard it all before,” he said. Others on April 10 spoke about public safety and teacher pay. “Our teachers are educating our youth, which is the future,” said Aaron Edmond, who lives in the Occoquan District. He was part of a group of Prince William teachers, parents and school supporters who protested outside the county government center before the public hearing started, demonstrating largely about a cost-of-living adjustment raise they hope supervisors will consider adding to their budget. Martino’s spending plan would fund a school board budget that includes money that would be used for a “step” pay raise, which will provide an aver-

age 2.7 percent boost for all school-division teachers and staff, but it does not include the additional 2-percent COLA pay increase sought by teachers. That prompted a sign Forest Park High School teacher Shannon Geraghty brought to the demonstration. It bore a message that was a takeoff on an old 7Up soft-drink slogan, saying, “PWC/serving up the un-COLA/We’ve been duped.” Barbara Larrimore, whose children attend Prince William schools, also was part of the protest and later contacted a reporter with a statement pointing out that teachers are the first people she trusts with her offspring other than family. Larrimore is one of 20 candidates vying to be appointed interim school board chairman. The board is scheduled to pick a successor April 18 for Ryan Sawyers, who resigned from his post March 7. “Their job is arguably one of the hardest and one of the most important in the world,” she said. “Their pay should reflect this importance and the value they bring to society. No teacher should have to work three jobs to support their family.” And, as if proving Larrimore’s point, Riley O’Casey, a middle school teacher who leads the local teachers’ union, the Prince William Education Association, said more teachers might have come to the demonstration — if they hadn’t had to go to second jobs they work to make ends meet. The supervisors are scheduled to approve a budget and tax rates April 24. Reach Jonathan Hunley at jhunley@fauquier.com.

Tied to success

Teacher collects nearly 1,600 neckties for middle school students I was unprofessional. It was Professional Day at Rippon Middle School, and I was unprofessional, meaning I didn’t wear a necktie. But Ryan Pelkey assured me that it was OK, and he knows something about ties. Pelkey is a health and P.E. teacher at Rippon, and he organized a tie drive that last week culminated in the distribution of ties to every boy in the school, more than 670 in all. The idea was to make sure each boy had a tie to wear, regardless of their circumstances, to set a foundation for success by first looking the part. A friend of Pelkey’s at another school, a small, rural institution, did the same thing on a small scale, and Pelkey followed suit, starting small. But he ended big. Over the past five months, he has collected donated ties, and he had a bit less than 1,600 by Professional Day, which was Thursday. Pelkey, who has been at Rippon for seven years, reached out via social media and contacted friends, and the ties started to roll in. They came to Woodbridge from all over the United States.

Rippon Middle School teacher Ryan Pelkey recently conducted a necktie drive so he could give a tie to every boy at the school. He collected donated ties from all over the United States, bringing in nearly 1,600 pieces of neckwear.

JONATHAN HUNLEY A school in Las Vegas even helped out with 150 ties that came from casino lostand-founds. Others arrived never worn. There were striped ties and patterned ties. Novelty neckwear and Gianni Ver-

sace ties, and tons of Trump ties, which I didn’t even know were a thing. They came in all colors, some devoted to holidays and others to sports. My favorite was a Baltimore Orioles version. Pelkey also recruited about 25 volunteers – Marines, police, Masons, Shriners and parents – to come in on Professional Day and help Rippon’s male students pick out their favorite and get it tied properly. It was a sight to see: an example of altruism, com-

From Pre-K to Master’s

munity activism and education all rolled into one and packed into Rippon’s gym. For example, Marine Lance Cpl. Mahmoud Berte helped 14-year-old Daniel Horvath, an eighth-grader, with a maroon-striped tie to go with his checkered button-up shirt. Daniel had worn ties before, including a clip-on, but he seemed to perfectly grasp Pelkey’s vision for the event. “If someone can’t get a tie, it’s helpful for them, and it also helps people think about what they want to do

later on,” he said. Indeed, Pelkey told the boys they could wear their ties to their first job interviews. “It’s really important that you dress better than the person who is giving you the interview,” he said. What ties didn’t get claimed Thursday will go to elementary schools, unemployment agencies for job interviews and church groups, Pelkey, who’s been friends with my editor since the 1980s, told me. He also wants to assemble starter kits for other schools that want to do their own drives. It’s all a laudable enterprise for which Pelkey deserves the community’s gratitude. He’s trying to make sure students get not only their reading, writing and arithmetic but also a good start for the days beyond school. Perhaps Berte, who’s from New York City, said it best: “I wish I had something like this when I was growing up.” Jonathan Hunley is a staff writer for this newspaper.

‘He was truly Semper Fi’: Quantico loses town councilman in motorcycle crash

Loving Homes Needed

RappCats is a private, non-profit organization that rescues, cares for, and finds loving homes for abandoned, abused, neglected, injured, and homeless cats and kittens throughout Rappahannock County. We operate the RappCats Adoption Center, a cage-free, no-kill facility that is the only state-approved cat shelter in Rappahannock County.

COUNCILMAN, from Page 1 and later taken to Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center, where he died on Friday, April 13. Town officials announced ThomCouncilman as’s passing on the Jerre S. Thomas Town of Quantico Facebook page. “Everyone who met Jerre quickly knew three things…he loved his family, he loved the Marine Corps and he loved the Town of Quantico,” the town’s post said. “We will all miss his energetic spirit, his contagious smile and his desire to serve his country and community. … He was truly Semper Fi.” Quantico Mayor Kevin Brown said Thomas was “just a really, really good guy,” whom he considered not just a colleague, but a neighbor and a friend. “He was just about to end his first term,” Brown said, noting that Thomas had been seeking a second term on the council in the May 1 town election. Thomas was one of seven candidates for five seats who qualified for the council ballot in Quantico. Fellow incumbents Tom E. Davis, Earlene J. Clinton, Robin R. Langham and Russell V. “Rusty” Kuhns are on there, too, as well as two challengers: Otis C. Baker and Sammoto Y. Dabney. Thomas’ name will appear on the ballot because it has already been printed, said Matthew Wilson, spokesman for the Prince William County Office of Elections. However, notices explaining the situation with Thomas’ death will be placed inside voting booths, Wilson said. It was unclear Monday what will happen if Thomas is among the top five vote-getters, but Wilson said voter Registrar Michele L. White has reached out to state officials for guidance. “We’re basically waiting for word from them about what would happen,” he said. Brown said it’s “extremely likely” that Thomas will be one of the top five vote-getters because he was popular in the town and voters may see their vote as kind of a memorial to him. “It’s tragic and likely to be kind of an odd result,” Brown said. He said a memorial service for Thomas will be held, probably early next week. Thomas’s motorcycle was struck by a 2012 Honda Civic as it changed lanes near mile marker 151, according to Susan Rowland, public relations coordinator with the Virginia State Police. The impact of the collision caused Thomas’s motorcycle to briefly leave the roadway. Thomas attempted to regain control, causing the motorcycle to re-enter the left travel lane where it fell onto its side, Rowland said. The Honda driver – a 47-year-old male – was uninjured. Virginia State Police is consulting with the commonwealth attorney’s office regarding charges. The crash remains under investigation. Contact news@fauquier.com

RappCats is operated by volunteers and funded through donations alone. The Rappahannock County Animal Shelter is funded only for dogs so our rescue work and care for needy cats and kittens is critical. We hope you can make room in your loving home for one of our wonderful kitties who are available for adoption. Please call 540.987.6050 or email rappcats@rappcats.org for more information and to schedule your visit.

Poppy

I am a happy, playful, friendly and loving female kitty. I love to snuggle and can be held like a baby. I love to chase balls and play with toys on strings. I am always gentle with people (including kids)—no scratching or biting from me! Please come see what a charmer and cuddler I am!

Jeffy

June Bug

I’m a happy, curious little firefly of a young tuxedo girl. I lived alone in a basement before I came to RappCats so everything at the shelter is new and exciting. I love all the people and the other cats. I am a snuggly lap kitty and a natural cuddler. I’m hoping for a home where I can enjoy sunshine and lots of love. Please come and meet me soon!

Lily

Sugar & Snow

I am a large, sweet, laid-back male kitty. I am very gentle and patient. I love to be petted and stroked and will be your best friend if you will pay attention to me. I have a lot of love and affection to give. Hope you will come and meet me soon!

I’m a playful and very loving girl. I’m so grateful for love and affection and am very responsive to being cuddled. The kind people at the shelter say I’m a very sweet kitty. Please come and meet me!

We are Sugar (mother) and Snow (daughter). We have very sweet dispositions and are gentle and loving. Cuddling with people is one of our favorite pastimes. We enjoy being brushed and petted. Both of us have a lot of love to give. It is important that we stay together as we are very close and are besties. (Sugar helps Snow to be less shy). Please come and meet us—we’d love to meet you!

Bear

I’m a two-year old, very cuddly, adorable male Manx-Bombay kitty. My name is Bear because I was born without a tail as I am part Manx and I walk a bit like a bear. I was dumped off in the bitter cold and was very hungry. I’m still a little bit timid but I really enjoy having the kind people at RappCats brush me, hold me, and love me. Please give me a loving home!

Evie

I’m a very gentle young tuxedo girl with a pretty patch of white on my nose. I was abandoned and had to fend for myself for a while so I’m still learning to relax and trust. Given all I’ve been through—it’s amazing how very sweet and adorable I am. Come meet me and see for yourself!

Aviation tech school hosts Boys & Girls Club kids By James Ivancic Times Staff Writer

Kids from the Boys and Girls Club in Manassas got to sit at the controls of a flight simulator and do hands-on work of the sort trained maintenance crews do to keep aircraft in top condition. The group of 26 youngsters and staff spent a couple hours on March 30 at the Aviation Institute of Maintenance on Davidson Place off business Va. 234. “Yeah,” said Ava Clark, 9, when asked if her turn in the flight simulator’s seat was fun. She practiced simulated takeoffs and landings. She remembered flying in a real plane out west when she was 3 years old. Besides the simulator, the kids observed instructor Roy Clark work on a small aircraft engine and took turns following his lead on repair work. They shifted to a couple more work stations before going outside to watch a drone being flown. Back inside, they were quizzed about how much they learned. The youngsters each received a

They wore safety glasses while in the workshop. Opening its doors to visitors like kids from the Boys and Girls Club “is a way to give back to the community and exposes them to aviation and aviation jobs,” said Marion Dobbins-Cohen, executive director of the Manassas campus. By the year 2023, Boeing estimates 300,000 new aviation technicians will be needed globally to replace those retiring over the next few years, she said. “We’re in an exciting time in aviation,” Dobbins-Cohen said. “We are changing the lives of men and women.”

Aviation maintenance technicians are certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. “It’s the only vocation where you get federal certification,” said Dobbins-Cohen. There are more than 200 students enrolled at the Manassas campus, one of 11 AIM schools in the nation. Women make up about 3 percent of the current class. The students range from high-school age to a 70-yearold who is a straight-A student, Dobbins-Cohen said. Safety is stressed throughout the training. “You have people’s lives in your hands,” said Dobbins-Cohen.

The student mechanics graduate from the institute in 20 months. The skills they acquire can be used at any airline, though as Jim Haven, director of education, said, there’s always something new to learn on the job as technology changes. Scholarships and financial aid are available to students. Some of the graduates go on to work at Delta Airlines. The Manassas school is one of Delta’s 20 “premier’ schools. More information can be obtained from the institute’s website at aviationmaintenance.edu. Reach James Ivancic at jivancic@fauquier.com.

BRIEFS Manassas airport fixed-based operator honored

The Manassas Regional Airport has two fixed-based operators, and one of those has been named the No. 1 FBO in the world for line services by the Aviation International News pilot survey. Aviation International News, a business aviation publication, published the survey results in its April 2018 issue. This survey has been ongoing since 1981. Qualified subscribers were asked about the service that FBOs worldwide provide to their customers. This year’s survey asked readers to evaluate FBOs that they visited in the previous year in five categories: line service; passenger amenities; pilot amenities; facilities; and customer service representatives. The survey received evaluations from 5,246 respondents. FBOs from 98 different countries were evaluated.

Pinwheels represent happy life every child deserves

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and several dozen people recently gathered at the McCoart Government Center to “plant” blue pinwheels to raise awareness about how people can help prevent child abuse. The pinwheel was adopted as a symbol of child abuse prevention in 2008 by Prevent Child Abuse America, a national organization with the mission to “prevent child abuse and neglect of all children in the United States.” Theresa Wilson, the Prince William County Department of Social Services

Board of Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart, R-At Large, spoke to the gathering on behalf of the board. “The board is very, very proud of all your efforts, all of the county staff that we have … that help prevent child abuse,” Stewart said. “So, on behalf of the board of county supervisors, I want to thank all of you who help protect our kids here in Prince William County and

help protect our future in doing so.” Wilson said it’s everyone’s responsibility to help prevent child abuse. “The main thing that people can do if they have a concern that a child is being abused or neglected is to report it. Everybody plays a role,” she said. “If you see something then you need to report it. That’s how we protect children. It’s really a community thing,” Wilson said. The Child Abuse Prevention Hotline is 703-792-4200. For more information about child abuse prevention, visit www.pwcgov. org/dss.

Manassas again named a Tree City USA

Manassas has been named a Tree City USA for the 28th year by the Arbor Foundation in honor of the city’s commitment to effective urban forest management. The designation has been presented to the city annually at the Arbor Day Celebration. This year’s Arbor Day Celebration, the 34th annual, will be held at Kinsley Mill Park at 8844 Hastings Drive, at 10 a.m. April 20. It is free and open to the public. At the celebration, the city’s Beautification Committee will present awards to students in pre-K through fourth grades for their posters on this year’s theme, “If I Plant a Tree.” The committee combed through hundreds of submissions to pick first, second and third place winners for each grade. The Tree City USA flag will be presented to the city by the Virginia Department of Forestry.  Manassas is a Keep America Beautiful affiliate – Keep Manassas Beautiful.

Commuter changes coming to western Prince William County The Virginia Department of Transportation’s Transform 66 Outside the Beltway project is a public-private partnership that promises to add express lanes on Interstate 66, rebuild major interchanges on roadways carrying traffic to I-66, expand pedestrian/bicycle trails and create thousands of new park-and-ride spaces. These changes will affect commuters in western Prince William County. The project spans 22.5 miles of I-66 between the Capital Beltway and U.S. 29 in Gainesville. According to the VDOT website, the project is designed to provide “safer, more reliable travel options for more people across Northern Virginia.”

I-66 Express Lanes

The project includes two express lanes in either direction and three general-purpose lanes in each direction along I-66. FAM Construction will be constructing the project and is contractually obligated to have work completed by December 2022,

according to FAM Spokesperson Nancy Smith. Interference with daily traffic should be minimal since much of the work will be done at night and during off-peak hours, Smith said. “During peak periods, we’re maintaining four lanes of traffic and the HOV lanes will maintain the HOV hours,” Smith said. “We can have no closures during peak periods.”

the express lanes, gave $500 million to VDOT, of which $209 million will be used for the Balls Ford Road interchange and widening. During its April 10 meeting, the Prince William Board of Supervisors allocated the funding for the projects. Design activities are scheduled to begin in May, and construction is expected to begin by 2020.

Balls Ford Road

The Transform I-66 Outside the Beltway project also includes two new commuter parking lots in Prince William County. One commuter lot, with roughly 1,200 spaces, will be constructed where University Boulevard, U.S. 29 and I-66 converge and should be completed by the summer of 2019. The other commuter lot will be at the intersection of Balls Ford Road and Century Park Drive, which is a new road to be constructed to connect the newly widened Balls Ford Road and the I-66 Express Lanes.

Balls Ford Road will undergo major changes to enhance commuter traffic through Prince William County. Specifically, Balls Ford Road will be widened from two to four lanes between Groveton Road and Va. 234 Business and a new interchange at the Va. 234 Bypass will include the relocation of Balls Ford Road and a new bridge over the Norfolk Southern Railroad. As part of the deal to build and operate the express lanes, I-66 Express Mobility Partners, who will operate

The new lot will have at least 1,189 parking spaces and is slated to expand to 1,535 spaces by 2040. Other parking lot amenities include real-time parking availability information, covered bicycle racks, lighting and security cameras. Smith said work on the project that people can see now includes geotechnical testing to determine soil and rock conditions, which will help determine construction techniques. Utility surveys, to mark utility locations, are also underway. “In the next couple of weeks, depending on the weather, we’ll be taking out the rumble strips along I-66; and then in the late May, early June time frame, we’ll do a long-term lane shift on the main line, both east and westbound between U.S. 29 in Gainesville to about where the rest area is,” Smith said. “By next summer, the entire corridor will be transitioned to a construction zone.” For more information, visit www. transform66.org.

Commuter parking lots

23-29, Domino’s will offer large two-topping hand-tossed carryout pizzas for $5.99 each. The pizza theater design allows flexibility for a number of elements otherwise not seen in traditional Domino’s store. Highlights include a lobby, indoor seating, free Wi-Fi, open-area viewing of the food preparation process and the ability to track carryout orders electronically on a lobby screen. The store also features a chalkboard to allow customers to express their creativity or to leave feedback for the store team members.

“Domino’s in Quantico is much more open concept than it used to be,” said Miguel Llano-Cabrera, Domino’s director of corporate operations in Virginia. “Now our customers can actually watch and track their pizza being made, each step of the way. Domino’s is bringing the art and fun of pizza making to the forefront, and we hope customers come check out our newly renovated store.” To place an order at Domino’s in Quantico customers can visit www.dominos.com or call 703640-6171.

The dirty little secret about our recycling bins? By Jill Palermo

Times Staff Writer

Earth Day serves and annual reminder to recycle and reuse. But for most residents of Northern Virginia, separating newspaper, aluminum cans and plastic bottles from regular household garbage is already routine. A visit to American Disposal Service’s single-stream recycling plant in Manassas, however, reveals the dirty little secret hiding inside all those brightly colored curbside recycling containers: They’re full of trash. Clothes, shoes, garden hoses, pizza boxes, plastic bags and brake drums -- all regularly turn up in people’s recycling bins, and that’s become a big problem for the people who spend their days sorting through the mess at American’s recycling plant on Residency Drive, near the Manassas airport. “All that does is make

They’re full of trash

An Earth Day reminder: Throwing trash in curbside recycling bins is a problem that costs time and money. Above: American Disposal Service’s employee Houry Sokchea uses a metal tool to pry bits of paper and plastic from blocks of compressed aluminum cans outside the company’s Manassas recycling plant. If the cans are too contaminated with trash, they are rejected for recycling.

more work for us,” says plant manager John Foy. Foy doesn’t know why

their customers – 90 percent of whom live in Prince William, Fairfax, Fauquier and

Loudoun counties – toss so many un-recyclable items into their recycling bins.

Some of it’s no doubt the result of confusion about what can be recycled and what cannot. That’s why the company urges customers to check out the website: thinkbeforeyouthrow.org American’s recycling operation runs 11 hours a day, five days a week and processes about 50 tons of stuff every hour, Foy said. Much of the process is automated and mechanized. Screens with large metal teeth snag cans and bottles while paper and cardboard cruise over the top. Further along the line, electrified magnets separate the metal from the plastic. Nearly 60 plant employees man various conveyor belts along the way. Their main job is to pick out the garbage that the machines can’t separate. The facility ends up sending 75 to 100 tons of trash to the landfill each day, Foy said. See TRASH, Page 16

The dirty little secret about our recycling bins? They’re full of trash TRASH, from Page 15 The cost of the problem is also measured in time. Every few hours, the belts grind to halt so workers can “clean the screens.” That process sends workers scrambling to pull items like clothes, shoes, hoses and strings of Christmas lights from the machines’ innards. During a recent visit, one of the workers took a power grinder to strip gunk from the metal teeth as sparks flew beside other workers tugging away at plastic bags. Plastic bags are the main nemesis, Foy said. They get wrapped around the parts and clog up the operation. Another problem is that some of the recyclable paper they process – including newsprint – loses its value if its soiled by food or other trash. New contamination restrictions recently imposed by China, once a major importer of American recyclables, have changed the game for firms like American because their single-stream processing lines can’t produce paper clean enough to meet the new requirements. As a result, American Disposal now ships its paper off to India at a fraction of the price it once fetched rom China. Before the new rules went into place – part of China’s “National Sword” program – American Disposal sold paper to China at about $150 a ton. It gets only about $13 a ton from Indian firms, Foy said.

Sorting out the trash: Workers at American Disposal Service’s Manassas recycling plant stop the operation five times a day to clean trash from the facility’s “screens.” Above: Workers pull plastic and other bits of garbage from a metal conveyor belt.

“Just a year ago, we were making good money [on paper] but then the bottom dropped out,” Foy said. “Our profits are sharply down. It’s been a disaster.” Whether or not the changing market will result in rising prices for American’s curbside customers remains to be seen. American Disposal is a private company, and Foy declined to comment on how the company will compensate for the revenue loss. But customers play a role in making the operation as efficient as possible. Toward that end, American continues to try to get the word out about keeping recycle bins as clean as possible. Some of the biggest problem items include:

Vern’s Plumbing • Free Plumbing Inspection with Every Service Call! • Family Owned & Operated for 30 Years • Licensed & Insured • Residential & Commercial Service • Plumbing for Additions & Remodeling • Gas or Electric Water Heaters-Tankless • Underground Sewer Water Repairs -New Installations • Complete Drain & Sewer Service • Toilet & Faucet Repairs & Replacements • Hydro-jetting of Sewer Lines • Certified BackFlow Testing • Bath & Kitchen Repairs • Gas Line Installation & Repair • Video Sewer Inspection • Pumps of All Types (Sump, Ejector & Well) • Lifetime Customer Discount • Quality Work Guaranteed

Serving Fauquier County & Surrounding Areas

Plant manager John Foy stands in front of a dumpster full of trash separated from pulled from customers’ curbside recycling bins on a recent Friday morning.

Pizza boxes: Yes, they’re made of cardboard, but NO they are not recyclable. They’re too greasy and muck up the machines and the rest of the recyclable items. Hoses, strings of lights, ropes: Anything long and stringy is a big no-no. Food waste: Rinse out plastic containers and cans. The remnants of peanut butter and tomato sauce are a problem. Plastic bags: Take them to a grocery store that collects them but keep them out of your recycling bin. “Plastic bags are the worst,” Foy said. An aside: Residents who take their recyclables to the seven recycling drop-off sites around Fauquier

County are asked to keep their items as clean as possible, too. But because their items are processed separately, trash is not such a big problem, said Mike Dorsey, the county’s director of environmental services. Workers at the drop-off site sort trash out of the recyclables all day long. But doing so earlier in the process keeps the recyclables from being contaminated like they are at single-stream facilities like American’s. Still, Dorsey urges everyone to “keep it clean.” “When you start throwing different things into [the recycling], it’s just garbage,” Dorsey said. Reach Jill Palermo at jpalermo@ fauquier.com.

Communitywide ‘Let’s Volunteer Day’ slated for April 21 PATH Volunteer Center readies for second annual event

By Anita L. Sherman

Lynn Lauritizen, PATH Volunteer Center Manager

Community Editor

Lynn Lauritzen serves as the manager at the PATH Volunteer Center. Under her leadership and vision, a Let’s Volunteer Day was initiated last year. Now, in its second year, it has proven to be a great vehicle to help area nonprofits get matched with eager volunteers. It’s a partnering that makes a difference in PATH’s service area of Fauquier, Rappahannock and Culpeper counties. “It’s a great way to give back to the community… and in talking with our area nonprofits, it’s clear how much they benefit from the volunteers who help them throughout the year,” says Lauritzen who previously served as director of volunteer services for 10 years with Fauquier Health. She knows how to organize. Masterminding a computerized spreadsheet of more than 1,000 users, she can reach and track volunteers, where they have par-

By design, Let’s Volunteer Day coincides with National Volunteer Appreciation Week. It’s an effective way for nonprofits to tackle projects that may be a bit different from their day-to-day efforts. “It’s really fun to see how much our community can accomplish in just one day,” says Lauritzen, adding that individuals, families, friends, churches and student clubs are all encouraged

to sign up. Participants go straight to their project sites, don volunteer day T-shirts and get to work. “We have such a good relationship with our volunteers,” said PATH Director Amy Petty. “Groups reach out and take over a project.” Last year some 200 volunteers came but they anticipate that number to double this year, Petty said. Let’s Volunteer Day is a win-win for everybody. Students, who are looking to log

community service hours for college applications, may find this a particularly rewarding venture. Volunteer hours are tracked by the PATH Foundation, not just at this event, but throughout the year. “It’s very popular with students,” said Petty. “It creates a volunteer resume tracking specifically where their service has had a direct impact in the community. You can print it out…it’s a great tool... to use this resume as proof of volunteer work.” Most of the work starts in the morning but it is designed for flexibility so once you are connected with nonprofit, you can come and go. Petty also shared that while the bulk of the volunteering is done on Saturday that you can arrange to do the work anytime. What tends to happen is

that volunteers who get paired with a nonprofit based on interest usually end up staying connected and become repeat volunteers. There are small and large projects. “We want every volunteer that we can get,” emphasized Petty noting that nonprofits are eligible for a $500 grant from PATH to help with supplies. “That has made a big difference.” Lauritzen is excited. She has seen firsthand the power of making these kinds of connections. “It’s very magical to see people finding things that they wouldn’t otherwise know about. We’ve found some real gems with really great skills. Value working both ways,” Lauritzen said. “That’s the beauty of this…very volunteer minded…it’s a win-win…a one stop shopping place to have nonprofits and volunteers all in one place.” Go to www.letsvolunteer. org to help the day of the event. All participants will get a free T-shirt to thank them for their participation.

5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day (StatePoint) Earth Day, April 22, an annual opportunity to celebrate the natural world and get involved in short- and long-term efforts to protect the environment. Here are five ways to celebrate.

support your adventure.

Plant a tree

Trees provide shade and food for people and a habitat for birds and other wildlife. What’s more, they produce oxygen for people to inhale, as well as sequester CO2. Trees also reduce polluting runoff by intercepting water. In short, we need trees! Celebrate Earth Day by planting one. Each year, you can watch it mature and grow.

Volunteer

Many neighborhoods and communities around the country host volunteer clean-ups to honor Earth Day. Find one in your area or organize your own: gather some friends, some sturdy garbage bags and pairs of work gloves, and head out to a park or the shore of a local waterway for a clean-up.

the habit of reducing waste by recycling and reusing items as much as possible. Look at the footprint you create with your plastic consumption and find ways to improve your habits. Bring a reusable bag to the grocery store. Buying a drink? Don’t use a straw. Getting takeout? Ask the restaurant to hold the plastic silverware.

Update your technologies

Outdated tech often contains harmful elements that can hurt the environment, such as lead paint or mercury. Check out newer models that meet international standards.

Rainforest Trust celebrates Earth Day with multiple events Warrenton-based international conservation organization Rainforest Trust is celebrating Earth Day by launching two month-long initiatives, participating in several events across the country and hosting its first annual Earth Day of Service at its Airlie headquarters. Rainforest Trust is collecting unwanted televisions, computers, cellphones and other electronic equipment in an electronics recycling drive at its Airlie headquarters, 7078 Airlie Road, Warrenton. Conducted in partnership with ALC Recycling, the drive runs through Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Earth Day weekend, April 21-22, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. N3TWORK will save 1 acre of tropical habitat through Rainforest Trust for every social media post and

share that includes the #SeeTheRainforestFor hashtag. This initiative is being shared internationally with Rainforest Trust’s local partners and visitors to and participants in the organization’s other Earth Day events. Details on how to participate can be found at www.rainforesttrust.org/ seetherainforestfor/. Rainforest Trust will expand its local environmental activities this year with its first full day of service on Saturday, April 21. In addition to running the electronics recycling drive for the day, participants will pick up trash along the stretch of Route 605 named Airlie Road as part of Virginia Department of Transportation’s Adopt-a-Highway program and conduct a plant-installation project in partnership with Fauquier County Parks and Recreation at

Warrenton’s Rady Park. Volunteers will be treated to a free picnic lunch provided through a $500 PATH Foundation grant, as well as donations from Chick-fil-a, Giant, Great Harvest, Pizza Hut, Red Hot and Blue and Wegmans. There will also be games, arts and crafts made with recycled materials and a forest fire presentation from the Warrenton Volunteer Fire Department. For the second year in a row, Rainforest Trust will attend the Earth Day 50 Challenge, a summit comprising more than 100 corporate, environmental, academic and philanthropic leaders held on the sidelines of EARTHx in Dallas.

It is working to establish a network of more than 190 protected areas toward a goal of strategically protecting 50 million acres by 2020. For more information, visit www.RainforestTrust.org

Choosing furnishings for your family – and the environment (StatePoint) More consumers are interested in selecting products that are good for the planet and their families than ever before. While many understand the benefits of organic produce, confusion still exists when it comes to home furnishings. Simply put, what you bring into your home directly impacts the health and welfare of your family in terms of exposure to chemicals of concern, indoor air quality and comfort. With the deluge of products claiming to be environmentally sustainable, it’s important to know what to look for when furnishing your home. Here are some considerations to bear in mind.

Does it contain harmful chemicals?

While the EPA has phased out the use of some of the most potentially harmful chemicals, some chemical variations continue to be used in upholstery and fabrics. To get a sense of what’s good and what may be bad, consult resources like the U.S. EPA’s Chemicals of Concern List and the Living Future Institute’s Red List. Remember that while some degree of chemical treatment may be needed to make fabrics fire-retardant or stain-repellent, in many instances, green manufacturers employ minimal chemistry or have found natural solutions to achieve these results.

What’s it made of?

Select natural fibers or materials like cotton or wood whenever possible. However, if you prefer manmade fibers, ask about items made from recycled or post-consumer materials.

How long will it last?

What happens when I’m done with it?

Opt for materials that consist of recycled or reused materials and/or those that biodegrade or can be easily recycled.

Have green claims been validated?

Durability is sustainability. Whether wood, molded plastic or fabric, quality household items will remain in use, rather than in the landfill.

“Greenwashing,” or making untrue or inaccurate sustainability claims, is a pervasive problem across a range of industries. Opt for brands with third-party certifica-

tions. For example, products achieving GREENGUARD Gold certification have been screened to ensure they don’t contain any of the more than 10,000 chemicals commonly known to pollute the air we breathe. Earning this certification means these fabrics meet the world’s most rigorous chemical emission standards, improving indoor air quality and overall health. The Sustainable Furnishings Council is another excellent consumer resource.

A lot goes into designing and maintaining the perfect website.

Am I considering all the options?

Fortunately, top fabric and furniture manufacturers have developed more sustainable alternatives. Furniture retailers are offering sustainably-sourced, locally-made, and organic furniture and fabric options, while big box retailers like Target have developed sustainability scoring requirements on products to help educate and empower consumers.

Where does it come from?

A sofa made from natural materials may not be a truly green choice. Consider the supply chain, too. Are natural raw materials sustainably grown and harvested? Are they made by companies with reputations for environmental stewardship according to green manufacturing principles?

Boom, boom, boom go Bruins’ bats Boone, Stoss, Cofer go deep as Forest Park blasts Colgan 15-1 in crucial Cardinal showdown By Josh Dorsey

Special to the Times

Colgan baseball coach Mike Colangelo didn’t make any excuses after a lopsided loss to Forest Park on Friday night. “Forest Park is a lot better than us right now,” Colangelo said. “We are not on their level right now. We have to find a way to get up to their level. Sometimes you just have to tip your cap.” Colangelo’s comments came on the heels of a 15-1 drubbing ended in five innings due to VHSL mercy rules, which gave the Bruins a 6-0 Cardinal District record (8-6 overall) while dropping the Sharks to 3-2 (8-4). Coming in, the matchup was highly anticipated with both teams near the top of the Cardinal District standings, but the Bruins never let up against the Sharks. “I like what we did with bringing the bats out and scoring five on them in the first inning,” said Forest Park coach Steve Denard. “We knew we had to keep manufacturing runs because we expected it to be a pretty tight game.” Forest Park put six of its first seven batters on base and got first-inning RBIs from Joseph Cofer and Andrew Frye. Tommy Wells then cleared the bases with a three-run double that gave the Bruins a 5-0 advantage before Colgan even got its turn to hit. Wells’ big first inning hit was only the start for the first baseman. The Forest Park No. 7 hitter picked up another RBI on a walk in the fourth inning and one more on a ground ball in the fifth to finish with a career high five RBIs. “I came up in the first inning and knew we needed to get on them early,” Wells said. “I went to the opposite field and got a double to get three runs in. Then I just kept telling everyone to keep the energy up the whole game.” The five-run first inning was all that Forest Park pitcher Robbie Stoss

Ben Moore and Joseph Cofer enjoyed their key Cardinal District win that kept the Bruins all alone in first place at 6-0. needed. Stoss kept Colgan’s scary offense in check, allowing only Brady Carter’s solo home run to fly over the left field fence in the second inning. Stoss pitched the full five innings. “My curveball wasn’t working as well tonight so I was working mostly with the fastball and just locating pitches. It worked out well,” Stoss said. “I threw one bad pitch but we got the win.” At the plate, Stoss was 2-for-3 with a solo homer in the fourth inning. “Anytime you have a lead like that, you are comfortable on the mound. It feels great to contribute

on offense when you are out there on the mound. It makes me feel like I’m doing my part,” Stoss said. Forest Park team hadn’t launched a homer all season. By the end of the fifth inning they had three. Griffin Boone started the home run party in the fourth with a two-run blast, and Stoss immediately followed. Cofer added a solo shot to open the fifth. For Colgan, it’s back to the drawing board after a Friday the 13th to forget. “I believe in our guys,” Colangelo said. “I have seen them play really well this year. We just aren’t playing well right now and we haven’t been

for three or four games. We will hope to have a good practice tomorrow and we will try to move forward.” Forest Park’s undefeated start has fueled hopes for the postseason. “Coming out 6-0 so far in the conference gives us a lot of confidence. I think we can definitely be state champs,” said Wells. But Denard said there is work to do. “We just have to maintain the focus in practice and take it into the second half of the conference. This is a very competitive conference. Any given day somebody could take the win,” said the Forest Park coach.

With four recent shutouts, Brentsville pitching staff is smokin’ By Noah Fleischman Special to the Times

PHOTO BY DOUG STROUD

Vince DiMauro and the Brentsville pitching staff have four shutouts in their last five games.

The Brentsville pitching staff is on fire. George Mason University-bound pitcher Mason Posey tossed a complete game four-hitter with seven strikeouts and two walks as the Tigers shut out the Fauquier Falcons, 5-0, Friday night. It was Brentsville’s fourth shutout in a remarkable five-game run. The only runs they’ve given up in three weeks came in a 4-2 loss to Sherando on April 6. The first shutout came March 28 when Jake DeLisi pitched a five-inning one-hitter in a 16-0 win over Edison. On March 29, Posey earned the win in

a 19-0 shutout victory over Osbourn. Vince DiMauro tossed a complete game shutout in a 5-0 win over Liberty on April 12. Then came Posey again Friday vs. the Falcons. “The shutout really helps my confidence since my pitching was a little rough to start the year off,” said Posey. “It helped light a fire under my butt and feel more confident with all three of my pitches.” Brentsville improved to 5-5, including 4-4 against Class 4 Northwestern District teams. Next up for the Tigers is an expected strong run at the Class 3 Northwestern District title. The Tigers play Friday at Class 3 district foe Skyline.

Against Fauquier, Brentsville took a 1-0 lead in the second inning as Isaiah Thomas was driven in from third on DiMauro’s fielder’s choice. Thomas ran for catcher Sam Beard, who reached on a single for the Tigers’ first hit. Beard finished 3-for-3, all singles. The Tigers made it 2-0 in the third inning on Alex Seymour’s RBI single. Seymour finished 2-for-3 with an RBI. Brentsville put together a two-run fourth inning as Billy Hoad drove in two Tigers on a single to make it 4-0. Hoad finished with the hit, a walk and two stolen bases. Besides his pitching gem, Posey went 2-for-3 with a walk. Running for Posey, Jake Cornwell scored two runs and had two stolen bases.

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC OF AN APPLICATION BY VIRGINIA ELECTRIC AND POWER COMPANY FOR REVISION OF A RATE ADJUSTMENT CLAUSE: RIDER U, NEW UNDERGROUND DISTRIBUTION FACILITIES, FOR THE RATE YEAR COMMENCING FEBRUARY 1, 2019 CASE NO. PUR-2018-00042 • Dominion Energy Virginia ("Dominion") has applied for approval to revise its Rider U, by which Dominion recovers the costs of its Strategic Underground Program. • Dominion requests a total of $73.047 million for its 2019 Rider U. According to Dominion, this amount would increase the monthly bill of a typical residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours per month by $1.39, for a total Rider U bill impact of $1.98 per month. • A Hearing Examiner appointed by the Commission will hear the case on July 24, 2018. • Further information about this case is available on the SCC website at: http://www.scc.virginia.gov/case. On March 19, 2018, Virginia Electric and Power Company (“Dominion” or “Company”) filed an application (“Application”) with the State Corporation Commission (“Commission”) for revision of a rate adjustment clause (“RAC”), designated Rider U, pursuant to, among other things, § 56-585.1 A 6 (“Subsection A 6”) of the Code of Virginia (“Code”), as amended by Senate Bill 966 (“SB 966”) passed during the 2018 Virginia General Assembly regular session. Through its Application, the Company seeks to recover costs associated with phase one (“Phase One”), phase two (“Phase Two”) and phase three (“Phase Three”) of the Company’s Strategic Underground Program (“SUP”) for the rate year February 1, 2019 through January 31, 2020 (“2019 Rate Year”). The Company asserts that SB 966 provides that its terms will apply to any petition for approval of strategic undergrounding cost recovery pending with the Commission on or after January 1, 2018, including the instant Application. The Company further asserts that SB 966 specifically provides that the replacement of overhead distribution lines with underground facilities on or after September 1, 2016, is deemed to provide local and system-wide benefits, to be cost beneficial, and that the costs associated with such new underground facilities are deemed to be reasonably and prudently incurred. Moreover, the Company asserts SB 966 mandates that the Commission approve recovery of such costs so long as the total costs associated with the replacement of overhead tap lines with underground facilities do not exceed an average cost per customer undergrounded of $20,000 and an average cost per mile of $750,000, exclusive of financing costs. In addition to an annual update to approved cost recovery associated with the SUP, the Company seeks cost recovery of the remaining balance of costs associated with Phase Two of the SUP not previously approved for recovery through Rider U, totaling approximately $65.2 million. The Company also seeks cost recovery for Phase Three of the SUP, designed to convert an additional 416 miles of overhead tap lines to underground at a capital investment of approximately $179.0 million with an average cost per mile of $430,000 and an average cost per customer undergrounded of $13,299. Dominion states that its actual expenditures for Phase Three incurred through December 31, 2017, are $83.9 million and projected expenditures for the period January 1, 2018 through January 31, 2019, are approximately $95.0 million. The Company is requesting to recover the costs of Phase Three through Rider U for only those projects that will be completed prior to February 1, 2019. The Company states that the two key components of the Rider U revenue requirement are the Projected Cost Recovery Factor and the Actual Cost True-up Factor. The Company states that the revenue requirement associated with Phase One costs and for the previously approved portion of Phase Two costs, totals $18.158 million, which includes a Projected Cost Recovery Factor of $13.991 million, an Actual Cost True-up Factor revenue requirement of $5.967 million, and the final of three voluntary customer credits in the amount of $1.800 million related to Phase One as required by the Company’s Stipulation and Agreement in the Phase One proceeding. The Company also states that the Projected Cost Recovery Factor revenue requirement for Phase Three and the remaining balance of Phase Two costs totals $54.889 million. In total, the Company seeks approval of revised Rider U with an associated revenue requirement in the amount of $73.047 million for the 2019 Rate Year. For purposes of the projected revenue requirements, the Company proposes a 9.2% return on equity (“ROE”), as approved by the Commission in its Final Order in Case No. PUR-2017-00038. The impact on customer bills of revised Rider U will depend on the customer’s rate schedule and usage. The Company asserts that implementation of the proposed Rider U beginning on February 1, 2019, would increase the monthly bill of a residential customer using 1,000 kWh per month by $1.39 over the current Rider U, for a total Rider U bill impact of $1.98 per month. The Company indicates that it is proposing a new method of cost allocation between the Virginia Jurisdictional and Virginia Non-Jurisdictional customers. The Application notes that Code § 56-585.1 A 6 exempts large general service rate classes from paying Rider U and the Company asserts that its new method “utilizes distribution cost of service information, recognizes the cost caused by actual plant investment incurred for the SUP, and recognizes that certain Virginia Jurisdictional and Virginia Non Jurisdictional classes are large general service and therefore should not be allocated any cost for the purpose of recovery under Rider U.” Interested persons are encouraged to review the Application and supporting documents for the details of these and other proposals. TAKE NOTICE that the Commission may apportion revenues among customer classes and/or design rates in a manner differing from that shown in the Application and supporting documents and thus may adopt rates that differ from those appearing in the Company’s Application and supporting documents. The Commission entered an Order for Notice and Hearing that, among other things, scheduled a public hearing on July 24, 2018, at 10 a.m., in the Commission’s second floor courtroom located in the Tyler Building, 1300 East Main Street, Richmond, Virginia 23219, to receive testimony from members of the public and evidence related to the Application from the Company, any respondents, and the Commission’s Staff.

Supervisors wary of proposed tax increase on data centers By Jonathan Hunley Times Staff Writer

Prince William supervisors are scheduled to approve a county budget and tax rates for the next fiscal year April 24, but it was unclear as of press time how they might act on the most controversial tax proposal of the budget season. That’s a plan by Board of County

Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart to nearly triple the property tax rate on “programmable computer equipment,” a change primarily aimed at data centers. Stewart, R-At Large, has noted that the county’s property tax rate for computer equipment — $1.25 per $100 in assessed value — is just a fraction of the tax rate county residents pay on personal property such

as cars and trucks --$3.70 per $100. So Stewart wants to raise the computer property tax rate to $3.70, too. The county decreased this tax rate more than two decades ago in an effort to draw high-tech firms, and later data centers, to Prince William. But now that that market is established, Stewart wants to bring the rate back up, a change that could generate about $19.2 million in revenue.

At least two of his fellow supervisors, however, don’t agree. Board of Supervisors Vice Chairman Marty Nohe, R-Coles, said he won’t vote to raise the tax on technology, and he noted he has been against the idea since Stewart proposed it. Aiming a tax at data centers targets an industry that pays a lot in See DATA CENTERS, Page 4

‘He was truly Semper Fi’ Quantico loses town councilman in motorcycle crash By Jonathan Hunley and Jill Palermo Times Staff Writers

The Town of Quantico has announced “with great sadness” the death of Councilman Jerre S. Thomas, who died Friday as a result of a motorcycle crash the day before on Interstate 95. Thomas, 57, a retired U.S. Marine Corps master sergeant, was heading north on I-95 when he was struck by a Honda Civic at about 8:15 a.m. on the morning of Thursday, April 12. Thomas was ejected from his motorcycle
