5 Friday Fauquier factoids: Veteran county employees

The Fauquier Joint Emergency Communications Center 9-1-1 calls averaged more than 2,000 a month last year.

Total years of work logged by 96 county government workers honored Thursday during the annual service awards ceremony at the Warrenton Community Center on West Shirley Avenue.

Three employees marked 35 years on the job:

• Family Social Services Worker Barbara Crowling.

• Sheriff’s Office Capt. Mike “Moose” Miller.

• General Services Fleet Manager Raymond Mills.


Fauquier government and school system employees used the county’s wellness center from last April, when it opened at 98 Alexandria Pike in Warrenton, through November.

In 2017, the county board of supervisors hired Vermont-based Marathon Health LLC to establish a clinic to serve employees who receive health insurance through the county.

Established through Marathon, the clinic helps reduce and control health care insurance costs by:

• Addressing “low-intensity” medical problems for which employees often seek treatment at emergency rooms or urgent care centers — typically at higher costs.

• Eliminating unnecessary tests and procedures.

• Providing preventive care and encouraging good lifestyle habits.

• Detecting undiagnosed conditions and treating them before they get serious.

• Providing pre-employment and annual physicals.

• Providing prescriptions, flu shots and various routine tests and office procedures.


Non-certified teachers working in Fauquier County Public Schools. The school system has 950 teachers.

To obtain certification, teachers must apply through the Virginia Department of Education, pass several training exercises and pay a $100 fee, among other requirements.

Fauquier schools work with non-certified teachers to obtain licenses during a three-year provisional period.


The number of business licenses in the Town of Warrenton as of Tuesday — not including out-of-town contractors.

Business licenses run from July 1 to June 30 each year. The town bases the license tax on prior year gross receipts.


9-1-1 calls the Fauquier County Joint Emergency Communications Center received in 2018.

The center has 24 public safety telecommunicators — formerly called dispatchers, a trainer and three administrative staffers.

The center handles communications with the sheriff’s office, Town of Warrenton police and fire/rescue units.
