Halifax County Recreation Director Brad Ballou announced this week that he plans to retire on Jan. 1.

Ballou, who was unavailable for comment yesterday, has served in his post for 32 years, devoting countless hours to baseball, softball, basketball and soccer programs — coaching many of the teams as well as maintaining the fields and facilities for the sports.

Ballou says he hopes to travel and have time for other interests.

In yet another change in the county staff, Otis Vaughan, a five-year employee of Halifax County, has been appointed as Director of General Properties and Inspections. His appointment becomes effective on Sunday, Sept. 1, when he takes over the post held by the late Dwight Waller, who died unexpectedly earlier this summer.

Since beginning his employment with the County, Vaughan has pursued his training and certifications to prepare him to take on this role. He has the training, expertise and knowledge of the County to move readily into this position; and is fully certified as a building official, Virginia Combination Commercial/Residential Inspector, Erosion/SedimentControl Administrator/Inspector, VA and NAARSO Amusement Device Inspector, Building Plans Examiner, etc.

Prior to joining Halifax County, Vaughan had 26 years of experience in contracting and construction.
