Mayor Donley asked the City Manager and the Director of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities to sit down and confirm the figures that Council had during its budget discussions.

Mayor Donley reaffirmed that the program needs to be developed, it has to encompass the elements of a good, quality after-school program with an academic flavor to it, and the specifications of the pilot program should be developed by the City, then it should be bid out, and the Recreation Department should be a bidder in that process.

Fred Hempel, 519 Bellvue Place, representing the Pitt Street Station Homeowners' Association, spoke to the proposed memorandum of understanding which does not adequately address the neighbors' concerns.

Vance R. Ablott represented that they recognize Bellvue Place is a private road and they will take such reasonable steps to insure that the employees, visitors, clients and/or delivery personnel do not use Bellvue Place, will give directions in all of their written materials to their clients and visitors as to the proper location of the parking lot, and will provide, subject to City guidelines, proper signage to the parking access so that they can do all of those things. Their concern is that they do, in fact, have an access easement across that road and they don't like the terminology preclude or restrict or eliminate because those things imply a variation to the access permit that they don't know that they want to be able to or are in a position to sign. That's the only terminology that they are stumbling over and they have given them assurances that they would do that. They are willing to stand behind the letter given to them [Pitt Street Station Homeowners Association] on May 28, fully to say that they will do everything they can to reasonably solve that.

WHEREUPON, upon motion by Councilwoman Pepper, seconded by Council Member Walker and carried unanimously, City Council approved the recommendation of the Planning Commission and approved the request, subject to all applicable codes, ordinances and staff recommendations, recognizing the representation by the two speakers that they are going to continue to work together to resolve any differences.

Pepper "aye" Euille "aye"
Walker "aye" Cleveland "aye"

Speck "aye"

(2) Prima facie evidence that the vehicle described in the summons issued pursuant to subsection (f) was operated in violation of this section, together with proof that the defendant was at the time of such violation the owner, lessee or renter of the vehicle, shall constitute in evidence a rebuttable presumption that the defendant was the person who committed the violation. This presumption shall be rebutted (i) if the owner, lessee or renter of the vehicle either files an affidavit by regular mail with the city manager or the manager's designee, or, following service of a summons under section 19.2-76.3 of the Virginia Code, with the clerk of the general district court, stating that he was not the operator of the vehicle at the time of the alleged violation, or testifies in open court under oath that he was not the operator of the vehicle at the time of alleged violation, or (ii) if a certified copy of a police report, showing that the vehicle had been reported to the police as stolen prior to the time of the alleged violation, is filed with the city manager or the manager's designee, or, following service of a summons under section 19.2-76.3 of the Virginia Code, with the clerk of general district court prior to the return date established on said summons.

(e) The operator of a vehicle shall be liable for a monetary penalty of up to $50 if the operator is found, as evidenced by information obtained from the System, to have failed to comply with a steady red traffic light signal. No monetary penalty imposed under this section shall include court costs. Imposition of a penalty under this section shall not be deemed a conviction as an operator, and shall not be made part of the operating record of the person upon whom such liability is imposed; nor shall it be used for insurance purposes in the provision of motor vehicle insurance coverage.

(f) A summons for a violation of this section may be executed pursuant to section 19.2-76.2 of the Code of Virginia (1950), as amended. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 19.2-76 of the Virginia Code, a summons for a violation of this section may be executed by mailing by first-class mail a copy of the summons to the address of the owner, lessee or renter of the vehicle as shown, in the case of vehicle owners, in the records of the Department of Motor Vehicles or, in the case of vehicle lessees or renters, in the records of the vehicle lessor or renter. Every such mailing shall include, in addition to the summons, a notice of:



(ii) instructions for filing such an affidavit, including the address to which the affidavit is to be sent.

If the summoned person fails to appear on the date of return set out in the mailed summons, the summons shall be executed in the manner set out in section 19.2-76.3 of the Virginia Code. No proceedings for the contempt or arrest of a person summoned by mailing shall be instituted for failure to appear on the return date of the summons.

(a) Except as provided in subsection (b), any person who is aggrieved by an assessment of local taxes may apply to the director for correction of the assessment. Application for correction of the assessment shall be made on a form prepared by the director or as otherwise prescribed by the director. When the director is satisfied that an erroneous assessment has been made, he shall reduce the amount of assessed taxes and refund any taxes that have been paid in excess of that amount, together with any penalties and interest that have been paid on that amount.




(b) Any person who is aggrieved by an assessment of real property taxes may apply to the director of the department of real estate assessments for correction of the assessment. Application for correction of the real property assessment shall be made on a form prepared by the director of the department of real estate assessments or as otherwise prescribed by said director. When the director of the department of real estate assessments is satisfied that an erroneous assessment has been made, he shall certify to the director the amount of the erroneous assessment, and the director shall reduce the amount of assessed taxes and refund any taxes that have been paid in excess of that amount, together with any penalties and interest that have been paid on that amount.

Interest payable on such a refund shall begin to accrue on the later of the date on which the tax payment giving rise to the refund was due, or the date on which payment was made, and shall continue to accrue until the date the refund is paid. Interest shall be calculated separately for each day during the period interest accrues on the refund, and the daily rate shall equal the rate that would be used on that same day to calculate the interest to be paid on delinquent taxes of the same type which began to accrue interest on the first day following the day such taxes were due. Interest shall not be paid on any refund that is not the result of an erroneous assessment. A refund is the result of an erroneous assessment if the refund is pursuant to (i) an application for correction of an erroneous assessment under this section, (ii) an application for correction of an erroneous assessment under section 58.1-3980 of the Code of Virginia (1950), as amended, (iii) an application for correction of an assessment under section 58.1-3703.1 or 58.1-3983.1 of the Code of Virginia (1950), as amended, or (iv) an application to a court for correction of an erroneous assessment under section 58.1-3984 of the Code of Virginia (1950), as amended.

However, the provisions of this article shall not apply to a licensed business which is regularly engaged in business as an automobile dealer, salvage dealer or scrap processor. Nor shall the provisions of this article apply to any antique motor vehicle, as defined in section 46.2-100, Code of Virginia (1950), as amended, so long as a bona fide effort is being made to repair or restore the vehicle and it is shielded in a manner to protect it from the weather and to make it unsuitable for rodent harborage.

Section 4. That Section 5-8-64 of The Code of the City of Alexandria, Virginia, 1981, as amended, be, and the same hereby is, amended and reordained to read as follows:



Sec. 5-8-64 Removal of inoperable vehicle; remedies for failure to remove; costs.

(a) The occupant, and if different the owner, of the private property on which an inoperable motor vehicle is being kept in violation of this article shall be provided a written notice of said violation. The notice shall be provided by the fire marshal or the fire marshal's designee, or another city employee designated by the city manager, shall be posted both on the inoperable vehicle and in a conspicuous place on the property and, where the owner of the property is not its occupant, shall be mailed, by first class mail, to the owner at the address maintained by the city's office of real estate assessments. The notice shall identify the inoperable vehicle, describe the conditions of the vehicle which render it inoperable and in violation of this article, and shall state that, unless the conditions are remedied by a specified date, which date shall be at least five days following the date on which the notice is posted or, if applicable and later, the date on which the notice was mailed, the vehicle will be removed by the city to an impoundment facility. In the event that the inoperable vehicle remains on the property after the date specified in the notice, the fire marshal or the fire marshal's designee, or another city employee designated by the city manager, may remove the vehicle and place it in the city's impoundment yard or another impoundment facility.

(b) Within five days of any removal under subsection (a), the fire marshal or the fire marshal's designee shall provide a written notice to the owner, and if different the occupant, of the property from which the inoperable motor vehicle was removed and, if different, to the owner of record of the impounded vehicle. The notice shall be sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, and shall state the following: (i) the year, make, model and serial number of the impounded vehicle; (ii) the location of the impoundment yard where it is being held; (iii) that the owner of the vehicle and any person having a security interest in the vehicle may reclaim the vehicle within 15 days from the date of the notice, after the payment of all removal and storage costs resulting from the removal and storage of the vehicle, and after providing an assurance that the vehicle will be brought into compliance with this article; and (iv) that the failure of the vehicle owner to reclaim the vehicle within the time provided shall constitute both a waiver by the owner of all right, title and interest in the vehicle, and the owner's consent to the disposition of the vehicle by the city. If the inoperable vehicle is not reclaimed within the time specified in the notice, the city may dispose of the vehicle.

(c) The costs incurred by the city in removing, storing and disposing of an inoperable motor vehicle in excess of any proceeds derived from the sale of the vehicle shall be assessable against the owner of the property from which the vehicle was removed, the occupant of the property on the date the vehicle was removed, and the owner of the vehicle, and may be collected as taxes and levies are collected. The costs assessed against the owner of the property from which the vehicle was removed shall constitute a lien against such property, and the lien shall continue until actual payment of the costs have been made.

Section 5. That Section 5-8-65 of The Code of the City of Alexandria, Virginia, 1981, as amended, be, and the same hereby is, amended and reordained to read as follows:



Sec. 5-8-65 Civil violation and penalty.

A person receiving a notice under section 5-8-64(a) which describes the conditions of a motor vehicle that render the vehicle inoperable shall remove or otherwise remedy the conditions within the time period set out in the notice, and failure to do so shall constitute a violation of this section.
