The Spotsylvania County Board of Supervisors is looking to use tax revenue from a planned massive solar facility to help fund a new pay program for sheriff’s office and Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management employees. The board on Tuesday voted to set aside $580,000 in “one-time money” from the solar facility’s “roll-back” tax, as well as a portion of any remaining revenue in the annual budget. That money would show a commitment from the county to implementing a new pay program, Supervisor Tim McLaughlin said. He moved to set aside the funds after the board learned that the county’s fire and rescue department was requesting a nearly $1.2 million budget amendment for overtime. Supervisor Gary Skinner removed the request from the consent agenda, asking Fire Chief Jay Cullinan to look for a way to cut back on the overtime costs.
