Chase City Council sets aside funding for new town logo / August 12, 2020
The Chase City Town Council is continuing efforts to improve and update the image of the town.

On Monday, Council agreed to spend $1,500 on the design of a new town logo. They also agreed to hold a joint public hearing with the Chase City Planning Commission to make changes to the Town Code related to mobile, modular and manufactured homes.

Council is proposing to ban all future mobile home and manufactured housing parks within town limits to improve Chase City’s image and increase property values. Council also proposes to no longer allow new singlewide mobile homes in town limits, and require all future doublewide mobile homes to be no more than five years old and be affixed to a permanent foundation.

In other business at their monthly meeting on Monday night, Council agreed to allocate $9,610 for repairs to a culvert at 10 East Sycamore Street. Town Manager Dusty Forbes explained “the existing pipe was too short and created an overflow problem.” The repair work was completed by J.R. Price Construction.

Council approved a policy developed by Forbes that allows citizens and businesses to pay to use the new town sign located in front of the pavilion on Main Street for advertising of events, birthdays, anniversaries and congratulatory notices.

The fee to rent the sign is $25 for seven days, and no event will can be publicized on the sign more than two weeks prior to the date of event. All messages must be 40 characters or less.
