BONDS FOR EXISTING LANDFILL
Question: Shall Loudoun County contract a debt and issue its general obligation bonds in the maximum amount of $11.285 million pursuant to the Public Financing Act, Chapter 5, Title 15.1 of the Code of Virginia of 1950, as amended, for the purpose of paying the costs, in whole of in part, of the continued development, construction, equipping, and closure of a portion of the existing landfill in the county?
Explanation: The current county landfill is expected to meet the county's solid waste management needs until April 1992, when it is projected to reach operational capacity. The planned Phase III development of the landfill will extend the capacity of the landfill until the planned new landfill is scheduled to be opened, in late 1995.
A YES vote would favor financing the Phase III development of the current landfill through the sale to general obligation (G.O.) bonds. This would allow the county to finance the Phase III development over an extended period of time -- typically a 20 year period.
A NO vote would oppose financing the Phase III development of the landfill through the sale of G.O. bonds. The county would then have to finance the Phase III development through an alternate means, such as a one-time increase in the tax rate to develop and close out the landfill.
ELECTION OF CHAIRMAN
Question: Shall the chairman of the County Board of Supervisors, to be known as the county chairman, be elected by the voters of the county at large?
Explanation: Currently, members of the Board of Supervisors are selected by voters from each of eight election districts in Loudoun County. The eight board members then elect on member to serve as chairman.
A YES vote would favor direct election of the chairman of the Board of Supervisors by the voters from the entire county. The other members of the Board of Supervisors would continue to be elected by district.
A NO vote would favor continuing the current system, in which all board members are elected by district, and the chairman is selected by the board.
