Council committees to meet / April 26, 2010
The Current Issues and Finance Committees of South Boston Town Council will hold their regular monthly meetings this afternoon in Council Chambers on Yancey Street beginning at 5:45 p.m.

Current Issues members will get an update on the Washington-Coleman Community Center Project, which is designed to upgrade the former elementary into a place where residents may participate in a variety of activities. The project is contingent upon the receipt of federal funds for the renovation.

The committee will also receive an update on the Landfill Gas to Energy project, using the methane gas from the former landfill to produce energy. Members are also expected to draft a resolution requesting money from the Tobacco Commission Reserve Fund to support the project.

The Finance Committee will review the Town’s monthly financial statement and take a look at the proposed fee and tax schedule for the FY 2010-2011 budget year. A hearing on the new budget is scheduled for Council’s regular May 10 meeting.

Following the committees’ meetings, Council is expected to go into regular session to approve the resolution for the Landfill Gas to Energy grant application. Members are then expected to go into closed session to discuss a real estate matter.
