Chase City Council sets hearing on food truck / April 12, 2017
Chase City Town Council amended three town ordinances during a short business meeting Monday night, and members also set an April 27 public hearing on whether to issue a permit for a new food truck to operate in Chase City.

The April 27 public hearing will take place at 5:15 p.m. at Town Hall, with citizens encouraged to offer their input on a request for a conditional use permit by Jean Thompson to run a food truck in town.

In action at Monday night’s regular monthly meeting, Council members changed three town ordinances. The first amendment clarified the type of wastes that can be placed in containers by households or commercial and industrial businesses for town pickup.

Prohibited items include medical wastes (unless placed in a hard plastic container), biohazards, construction materials, tires (unless cut into pieces), hazardous materials such as batteries and materials of excessive weight.

The second ordinance sets the fees for in-town and out-of-town garbage collection. Commercial and industrial garbage collection (non-dumpster) will cost $14 per month for one pickup per week, or $28 per month for two pickups per week.

Commercial customers who receive three pickups per week will pay $42 per month.

The third ordinance clarifies that out-of-town commercial or industrial customers who are requesting town-provided dumpster service must pay “50 percent more for rent, collection and tipping fee” than the amount paid by in-town customers.

In-town customers pay $14 per month for rent, $5 per collection and $2.06 per cubic yard in tipping fees.

Council members approved a new slate of officers for the Chase City Volunteer Fire Department. They are:

C.W. Carter — President

Jacob Whitten — Vice President

Jonathan Ligon — Chief

Charles Magann — Assistant Chief

Cameron Hatcher — Captain

Marty Lewis — 1st Lieutenant

Marques Fowlkes — 2nd Lieutenant

Josh Whitten — Sergeant/Asst. Secretary/Asst. Treasurer

Jason Mull — Treasurer

Evan Stembridge — Secretary

Larry Lehman — Chaplain

Tom Cribb — Chaplain

Residents of Madison Street between Second and Third Streets were granted permission to close that one block on July 1 from noon-11:30 p.m. That is the same day that Chase City participates in the Hundred Mile Yard Sale that runs along Highway 360 between Chula Junction and South Boston, with stops in between.

In other news, Mayor Eddie Bratton asked Council and the town to keep Councilman Winthy Hatcher in their prayers as he continues to battle health problems.

He also announced that his recovery from new replacement surgery is “on schedule,” but he faces several more weeks of physical therapy.

The Community Watch Meeting is being held next Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Chase City Fire Department Meeting Room. Bratton said, “Please attend if you can.”

Saturday, April 15 at 11 a.m. is the annual Easter Egg Hunt at MacCallum More Gardens.
