Herndon Council Preview: Council to Discuss Chestnut Grove Cemetery Fee Amendment

Council will also discuss a resolution to approve a civil action against homeowners who owe the town more than $6,200 in real estate taxes.

The agenda for tonight's Herndon Town Council work session is short and sweet with just a few items on it. 

The council will discuss a resolution to amend fees at Chestnut Grove Cemetery. The cemetery, owned by the town, is an enterprise fund, meaning the fees it collects must cover the operating costs of the cemetery. 

An amendment to the fees is being considered because of higher rates of cremation, which are expected to grow by about 10 percent. To see the proposed fee increases, click here (PDF).

The Herndon Council will discuss a resolution reappointing two members to the Heritage Preservation Review Board, Mary Boatman and Kirstin C. Falk. Boatman is being considered for another three-year term ending in Feb. 2016, and Falk is being considered for a one-year term ending in Feb. 2014. 

The Council will also discuss a resolution to approve a civil action that will allow the town to possibly sell the home located at 403 Florida Avenue for delinquent real estate taxes owed to the town. The homeowners have not paid taxes to the town since 2006 and allegedly owe $6,283.43. 

Additionally, Eileen Curtis, president and CEO of the Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce, will have a presentation on the Herndon Chamber's recent activities in the town. 

Tonight's meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the Hoover Conference Room of the Herndon Council Chambers. The Herndon Town Council will vote on the resolutions at its Feb. 12 public hearing, which begins at 7 p.m. at the Herndon Council Chambers. 

The Feb. 12 meeting will also include a public hearing to solicit comments from the public on the town's fiscal year 2014 budget. The council collects input from the public early in the budget process to learn what town programs and services are important to residents.
