Council committee work sessions set

SoVaNow.com / March 31, 2014
South Boston Town Council will meet this afternoon for committee work sessions beginning at 5:45 p.m. in Council Chambers on Yancey Street.

The Current Issues Committee, chaired by Bob Hughes with members Margaret Coleman and Winston Harrell, will receive the annual report from the South Boston Fire Department, showing the number of fire calls and medical emergencies over the past year.

The committee will also ask Council at its April 14 meeting to appropriate $600,000 in the FY14-15 budget for the rehabilitation of the Washington Coleman Housing Rehab project, all of which are state funds.

They will also ask Council to approve the Housing Rehab Program design and adopt bylaws for the Housing Rehab Board.

Two members must be appointed to the board, with one being a member of Town Council and the other a representative of the community who will in no way benefit from the rehabilitation project.

Members of the Finance Committee will hear staff recommendations for the upcoming FY2014-15 budget as well as receiving the monthly financial report.

Finance panel members will discuss the idea of implementing a “tax” on owners of motor vehicles that do not display current license plates as required by Virginia law.

Council members are expected to enter into closed session at the end of their agenda to discuss prospective candidates for employment.
