Coleman to depart South Boston Council
SoVaNow.com / August 14, 2014South Boston Town Council member Margaret Fountain Coleman submitted a resignation letter Monday night stating that she will step down effective Sept. 1.
In her letter, addressed to South Boston Mayor Ed Owens, Coleman wrote, “I have enjoyed my tenure on Council as well as the experiences that enabled me to meet the wonderful residents of South Boston. I am grateful for the way the citizens and my colleagues embraced me in this position.”
Coleman is relocating, and since her resignation date is Sept. 1, there isn’t enough time for a candidate to file for the council seat in the upcoming November general election.
As a result, Council will make an appointment for someone to fill the position until an election can be held in November 2015.
Council is currently seeking citizens who may be interested in serving. Interested citizens must reside in the town and be registered voters. For more information contact Town Clerk Jane Jones at 575-4200.
Council expects to fill the seat by Oct. 15.
In other business Monday night, council members named Robert Fountain to serve on the County Recreation Advisory Committee. Council members also heard Public Works Director Alan Auld propose improvements to the Prescott – Penick Avenue area, recommending that the street be paved and storm water drains be installed at an estimated cost of $27,700.
