Council to set committee lineup, take up zoning

SoVaNow.com / January 27, 2014
When South Boston Town Council meets tonight for its regular monthly work session, the first order of business will be appointments by Mayor Ed Owens to Council’s various committees. The meeting is set to take place at 5:45 p.m. in Council Chambers on Yancey Street.

Committee assignments will be followed by a report of the Finance Committee, headed by Coleman Speece.

The Current Issues Committee, headed by Bob Hughes, is expected to discuss a proposed amendment to the Town Code dealing with the length of terms of office for appointees to various commissions and agencies. The CIC is also expected to recommend appointees to the Board of Zoning Appeals and to the Halifax County Improvement Council.

Town Manager Ted Daniel will also update Council members on requests that have been made for inclusion in the town’s proposed zoning ordinance. A decision on updating the zoning ordinance was postponed earlier in January after several residents and business owners, mostly in the Seymour Drive and the Riverdale areas, asked that changes be made.
