Chase City to acquire property abutting old landfill / September 13, 2017
The Chase City Town Council authorized Town Manager Angela Lawrence to move forward with the acquisition of property abutting the town’s landfill. The town agreed to pay $24,750 to purchase the “Balfour property,” but only if all tax issues related to the property can be resolved.

The action was taken Monday night during the regular meeting of Council.

Members also approved changes to the zoning fees. Effective immediately, the cost for a zoning permit in Chase City is $15. The previous fee was $5. Additionally, any person filing an application for rezoning conditional use permit or special exemption must pay a fee of $100, up from $50.

The filing fee for appeals to zoning decisions will now be $100. Previously the fee was $30.

No action was taken on a request from a private trash and recycling service to allow the company to park its garbage struck and to store recyclable materials at 311 West Second Street.

Also, the responsibility of town zoning administrator was assigned to Lawrence. The role had been handled on an interim basis following the death last year of longtime town manager Rickey Reese.

Bratton said the next regular meeting of the Council will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. instead of Monday as that is Columbus Day.

“Progress continues on the Southside Roller Mill restoration thanks to a recent donation from Carolina Solar Energy,” Bratton noted adding that the company is working to construct a solar farm on property located on Spanish Grove Road just outside the town limits. The money is being put toward replacing the roof on the mill.
