The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation’s cost to fund nine summer internships last year.

PATH received 28 applications for the positions, which paid $12.50 to $14.50 per hour.

Logging 25 hours a week, the interns worked for nine Fauquier-based organizations and local government agencies, ranging from PATH and the Fauquier Free Clinic to the Town of Warrenton and Fauquier Reaches for Excellence in School Health.

The interns also participated in weekly leadership and group activities that the foundation organized.

Candidates must apply by March 9 for this summer’s PATH internships.

9.4 percent
Of people younger than 65 who live in Fauquier lack health insurance, according to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau survey, conducted in 2015.

That represents about 6,400 people here.

Statewide, 10.7 percent have no health insurance, compared to 11.7 percent nationwide, according to the survey.

$17.2 million
Fauquier County Public Schools Superintendent David Jeck’s projected cost for employee health insurance premiums in fiscal 2019. Up 8 percent from this year, that represents 11.9 percent of Dr. Jeck’s total proposed operating budget for next year.

The school system this year will spend an estimated $15.8 million for health insurance.

The system’s 1,750 permanent, full-time and part-time school employees who work at least 20 hours a week qualify for coverage.

Cost of six fully-equipped 2017 Ford Interceptor SUVs for the Warrenton Police Department. Newly purchased, four marked SUVs cost $57,988 each and two unmarked vehicles ran $46,513 each.

The town police department also has 23 marked and seven unmarked cruisers.

12.5 percent
The potential meals tax increase Warrenton’s town manager floated this week in a fiscal 2019 budget preview for the council.

That would add a half-penny to the town’s 4-cent tax for each $1 spent on prepared food and beverages.

If approved in June, the meals tax hike would generate about $312,000 more revenue for the town. 

For fiscal 2018, the town anticipates collecting $2.5 million from meals taxes.

The Town of Culpeper has a 6-percent meals tax, compared to 4 percent in Manassas and Front Royal and 3.5 percent in Leesburg.

"9.4% (6400 ppl under 65) have no health insurance" - How many people are independently wealthy and do not need health insurance to receive health care? 2010 census shows Fauquier as the 28th richest county in the US. Thinking out loud here..
