Albemarle County’s final work session on the five-year financial plan Wednesday gave the Board of Supervisors a sense of what infrastructure projects need the most funding, with the majority of the meeting focused on school needs.
The board heard from different county officials on issues such as school infrastructure and to capacity, recommendations from the Oversight Committee on the Capital Improvement Program and a potential bond referendum for the November ballot to help finance some of the capital projects.
School Board Chairman Ned Gallaway talked about the need to fund different capital projects in the county’s school division, especially additions to existing structures overcrowding in some schools in the county’s urban ring. The board believed the solutions were only short-term and did not see redistricting fixing the longer-term issues, especially in Greer Elementary and Albemarle High schools.
