Supervisors apologize for Davenport suit

The Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors issued a statement today (Oct. 2) admitting its lawsuit against its former financial advisor, Davenport & Company, was without merit. The Board also apologized for statements it made against Davenport and its representative, David Rose. The supervisors noted, however, that the suit was brought by a previous Board three years ago.

In exchange for the public statement, Davenport agreed to drop its pursuit of sanctions against the county, which included a demand that the county pay Davenport’s legal fees, which were in excess of $1.5 million.

The supervisors voted Sept. 25 to accept the offer from Davenport to end the lawsuit.

Revenue recovery is a way for counties to recoup some of the costs involved in providing ambulance transport to its residents by billing “insurance companies and individuals for the cost of emergency transport services,” Wilkins said.
