Halifax Council has courthouse, street plan on agenda / December 11, 2017
Halifax Town Council will meet Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. for a work session, to be followed immediately by Council’s regular monthly meeting.

Current Affairs committee chairman Bill Confroy will update fellow council members on the Courthouse Renovation Project and revisions to the ADA parking spaces on Edmunds Boulevard. Confroy also is set to discuss the one-way traffic pattern on Edmunds Boulevard that is part of the plan for the expanded courthouse complex. VDOT is conducting a traffic analysis and will hold a public hearing on the plan.

Council also is expected to review the status of the historic Clarkton Bridge as well as plans to preserve the structure rather than agree to VDOT’s plans to tear down the span.

Business Development Chairman Mike Trent will review the activities of the Village Association, including the Holiday Open House on Nov. 26 and the Children’s Christmas Parade on Dec. 3.

He will also review events at the Farmer’s Market including the Family Nutrition Program 5K Run/Walk as well as the Shop Small Business Saturday and the regular holiday market openings.

Finance chairman Bill Covington will lead a review the town’s draft June audit, and report on the collection of real estate and personal property taxes. Covington also will consider the employee annual evaluations provided by the personnel committee, as well as what new hires and steps are necessary for the renewal of the chief of police’s contract.

The agenda for the regular monthly meeting is light, with only the police chief’s report and citizen comment listed on the agenda.
