– Council Member Nedim Ogelman

April 5, 2017 Government, News Comments Off on Purcellville Encourages Public Input Re Budget Process

March 14 Town Council Meeting: Nitty-Gritty Issues Big and Small

April 5, 2017 Committees at a Glance, Government, News Comments Off on March 14 Town Council Meeting: Nitty-Gritty Issues Big and Small

The Purcellville Town Council meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Town Hall. Items discussed at the Council’s March 14 meeting included:

Revenue From Sale Of Town Property: The revenue from the sale of Mary’s House of Hope, located at 781 South 20th Street, is $300,000. Initiating a discussion of what to do with these funds, Council Member Nedim Ogelman said: “As we think about our debt and think about the tax burden on our citizens, particularly on water and sewer rates … it would very much interest me to have the revenue … from the sale of that property go towards paying off the debt [and] easing any immediate rate increases on sewer and water.” Council Member Kelli Grim echoed this, saying there is “merit in a portion of that money going to wastewater …” and supporting Ogelman’s desire to pursue anything that will ease the tax burden on the citizens, since the money from the sale of the property is a net profit. Mayor Kwasi Fraser said he would like to see this as an exercise in risk management. “If possible, we can see if we were going to take 100 percent, 80 percent, or 50 percent out of what would be the risk, and that will help us to make an informed decision.” … Continue Reading

Grim pointed out that the residential portion of Vineyard Square (the John Chapman and Mark Nelis development on 21st Street) is 40 condos. “So we lost 39 availabilities, and that falls back to policy… that is 39 availabilities that we have lost. And that is approximately $2 million.”
