SUBJECT/PROPOSAL/REQUEST:   Approval of Mutual Aid Agreement for Fire and Rescue Services Between Albemarle County and Louisa County

 

ITEM TYPE:  Consent Action Item

 

STAFF CONTACT(S):  Richardson, Walker, Kamptner, Farley, Eggleston, Mezzoni  

 

PRESENTER (S):  Dan Eggleston

 

LEGAL REVIEW:   Yes

 

REVIEWED BY: Jeffrey B. Richardson

 

BACKGROUND:  At its April 5, 2000 meeting, the Board adopted a mutual aid agreement for fire and rescue services with Louisa County. This agreement establishes the terms under which fire and rescue assistance is provided between the two jurisdictions.

In 2021, Louisa County asked Albemarle County to review and update the agreement. The County Attorney and Albemarle County Fire Rescue have reviewed and approved the updated agreement (Attachment A).   
 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN: Quality Government Operations - Ensure County government’s capacity to provide high quality service that achieves community priorities

 

DISCUSSION:  The intent of the mutual aid agreement is to continue the cooperative approach to address the occasional need both parties have for additional resources. Nothing in this agreement will require either party to respond to a request for service from the other party.

 

BUDGET IMPACT: The approval of the proposed mutual aid agreement will have no budget impact.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

Recommendation

Staff recommends that the Board adopt the attached Resolution (Attachment B) to approve the mutual aid agreement for fire and rescue services with Louisa County (Attachment A) and to authorize the County Executive to execute the agreement once it has been approved as to substance and form by the County Attorney.
