The amount that the estate of Upperville resident and philanthropist Paul Mellon recently donated to construct two sand volleyball courts at the county-owned Northern Fauquier Community Park along Route 55 east of Marshall.
The courts should be completed this summer, according to county Parks and Recreation Department Director Gary Rzepecki.
County government maintains sand volleyball courts at Monroe and Crockett parks in
Southern Fauquier and a grass court at Vint Hill Park near New Baltimore. The Town of Warrenton has a sand court at Rady Park.
The Mellon estate donated $14 million to build the 88-acre Northern Fauquier Community park, which features picnic shelters, an amphitheater, a small meeting room, sports fields, a fishing pond, playgrounds, a 1.75-mile paved walking trail and indoor restrooms.
The lump sum payment that Fauquier Bankshares CEO Marc J. Bogan received March 25 in advance of the company’s merger with Charlottesville-based Virginia National Bankshares Corp., which took effect April 1.
The payment compensates Mr. Bogan for termination of his employment contract — specifically its “Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan Agreement” — with Fauquier Bankshares, which he joined in 2016, according to a document filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Banks and other companies often provide such “parachutes” to recruit and retain top executives.
Former Fauquier Bankshares Chief Operating Officer Chip S. Register and Chief Financial Officer Christine E. Headly received lump sum payments of $150,000 apiece under the same provisions in their contracts.
Mr. Bogan on Thursday became CEO of Virginia National Bank. His counterpart, Glenn W. Rust serves as CEO of Virginia National Bankshares Corp., the holding company.
Announced in October and approved by stockholders of both companies last month, the merger created a combined with $1.7 billion in assets and $1.5 billion in deposits, based on Dec. 31 reports.
The company expects to rebrand The Fauquier Bank’s six Fauquier and five Prince William branches as VNB offices in July.
Fast food and beverage retailers in Fauquier have drive-thru windows:
The starting pay for those jobs ranges from $10.50 an hour for elementary school cafeteria and playground monitors to a potential annual salary of $106,667 for a transportation planner in county government’s community development department.
The list includes 48 full-time teaching positions.
