(d) Councilman Euille recognized the promotion of his dear friend, Earl Cook, who was recently promoted to Assistant Police Chief. He grew up with his family in public housing, graduated from T.C. Williams High School, Class of '73, and is a graduate of Duke University. Assistant Chief Cook is a 15-year veteran of the Police force, and is the first minority to be rewarded with one of the highest rankings here in the City's Police Department. It is an honor for the citizens of Alexandria to have someone of Earl's calibre to represent us on the Police force.

(e) Councilman Euille reported that he asked the City Manager to set for public hearing on June 17, his Retreat proposal for a citizens' public safety review commission. By June 1, he will make available to the Council and the public his proposed legislation to deal with the matter.

The City Manager advised that Emmitt Carlton of the NAACP has been talking to Mr. Henry Mitchum, who is with the Justice Department in Philadelphia and had interest and experience with police review boards. Mr. Mitchum is coming tomorrow morning to meet with her, Chief Samarra, the City Attorney and Acting Special Assistant to the City Manager Fayne. You will receive a report on this meeting when you receive comments on Councilman Euille's proposal.

(f) Councilman Euille stated that Council received the City's Annual Report on Alexandria's Enterprise Zone Program which was forwarded to the state office of Housing and Community Development, and he asked what would happen to the report in terms of the localities.

The City Manager explained that staff had recommended receipt of the report. Council will continue to receive updates on the Enterprise Zone and should receive a report sometime in the fall. There will be more information for Council then, and this issue can be set for public hearing, perhaps in October or November.


(g) Mayor Ticer announced that the City has received the CAFR award once again. The Department of Finance has received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the fiscal year ending June 1994. Kathy Schmitt, Comptroller, accepted the award this year.

(h) Mayor Ticer reminded everyone of Council's Community Forum on our Visioning process and the City's future being held on May 31, at the Old Town Holiday Inn at 7:00 p.m. The community is invited to participate in a series of round table discussions on major issues for the City in the coming years.

(i) Mayor Ticer related that she was visited this week by the director of the Olympic Torch Relay Committee and Nancy LaValle of the United Way about the Torch Relay coming through Alexandria sometime next year. Mayor Ticer received the unanimous consent of Council to send this request to Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities Director Kauffman and other staff to see how difficult it would be to waive the City's fees so that we can give them a letter by mid-June.

Vice Mayor Donley reported that at the recent United Way Executive Board meeting, the Board gave its overwhelming support as a potential fundraiser for United Way and as an opportunity to bring some prestige to the City. The major corporate sponsors nationwide are Coca Cola and Holiday Inn, who are corporate citizens of Alexandria as well, and the local representatives would be helpful.

Appendix I - LEAD-BASED PAINT

Older houses and apartments often have layers of lead paint on the walls, ceilings, and woodwork. Outdoors, lead paints and primers may have been used in many places, such as on walls, fences, porches and fire escapes. When the paint chips off or when the plaster breaks, there is real danger of babies and young children developing lead poisoning. Children get lead poisoning when they eat bits of paint that contain lead, or ingest lead dust which clings to furniture, walls, floors and toys through mouthing of fingers.

Most children have no symptoms. When symptoms appear, they are often similar to common childhood complaints such as headaches, irritability, tiredness, loss of appetite and stomach aches. Lead poisoning can cause learning problems, behavior problems, mental retardation and even death.

Even very small amounts of lead can cause serious harm to a young child. The only way to detect lead poisoning early is to have your pediatrician or clinic perform a finger-stick blood test for lead. Do this if you detect symptoms.

If a child is seen putting pieces of paint or plaster in his mouth, he should be taken to a doctor, clinic or hospital as soon as possible. Do not wait for signs of poisoning.

The Purchaser or his contractor shall inspect for defective paint surfaces (paint on applicable surfaces that are cracking, scaling, chipping, peeling or loose). Treatment of defective paint conditions shall be included in the Purchaser's Schedule of Repairs and Improvements, which appears as Attachment #1 to the Agreement for Sale and Rehabilitation of 1114 PRINCESS STREET, Alexandria, Virginia. The Purchaser must treat defective paint surfaces by either covering or removing the defective paint surfaces. Covering may include adding a layer of gypsum wall board; a Fiberglass cloth barrier; or, if wall conditions permit, wallpaper which is permanently attached and not easily removed. Methods for paint removal include scraping; heat treatment (infrared or coil type heat guns); chemicals; and, replacement of trim surfaces. Machine sanding and use of propane torches are not permitted. Washing and repainting without thorough removal or covering is not adequate.

Chewable surfaces are all chewable protruding painted surfaces up to five feet from the floor or ground which are readily accessible to children under seven years of age, e.g., protruding corners, windowsills and frames, doors and frames, and other protruding woodwork. The purchaser is required to test the lead content of chewable surfaces, unless abatement is performed without testing. Lead content shall be tested by using an x-ray fluorescence analyzer (XRF) or other method approved by HUD. Test readings of 1 mg/cm or higher using an XRF shall be considered positive for presence of lead based paint.
26


Where interior chewable surfaces are found to contain lead-based paint, all interior chewable surfaces in any affected room shall be treated. Where exterior chewable surfaces are found to contain lead-based paint, the entire exterior chewable surface shall be treated. Treatment of chewable lead-based paint surfaces shall consist of covering or removal of the painted surface as described above for defective paint surfaces.

In lieu of the procedures for testing the lead content of chewable surfaces, the Purchaser may forego testing and abate all interior and exterior surfaces by covering or removing the painted surface as described above for defective paint surfaces.

Treatment of chewable surfaces shall be included in the Purchaser's Schedule of Repairs and Improvements, which appears as Attachment 1 to the "Agreement for Sale and Rehabilitation of 1114 Princess Street, Alexandria, Virginia."

The Purchaser will provide the seller a copy of each inspection and/or test report.

Lead-based paint and defective paint debris shall be disposed of in accordance with applicable Federal, state or local requirements.
