Halifax Town Council will meet Tuesday night for its monthly work session, followed immediately by the regular meeting of Council. The work session starts at 6:30 p.m. at Halifax Town Hall.

During the regular Council meeting, members are expected to name two representatives to serve on the Joint Library Working Committee, tasked with studying the future of the local library system, including possible consolidation of the Halifax and South Boston library branches. Halifax’s two members will join with two members from South Boston Town Council, Ed Owens and Bill Snead, and two appointees from the Halifax County Board of Supervisors, J.T.Davis and Lottie Nunn.

Council is also expected to go into closed session to discuss the status of the town’s nearly year-long search for a new police chief.

Council members also are set to receive a report from Events Coordinator Susi Robbins on the success of the Halifest 2012 celebration. Denise Barksdale also will report on the activities of the Farmers Market and the Village Business Association, as well as giving an update on the community clock initiative.

Finance Committee chairman Holt Evans will report on improvements to bathroom facilities at the Farmers Market building. Updates will be released on the targeting of derelict properties in town as well as the razing of the former Burlington Properties by the D.H. Griffin Company.

Current Affairs Committee chairman Bill Confroy will report on the courthouse space needs and availability assessment study, and engineering/design work for the Banister River Gateway Project. He will also bring an update on the proposed MBC wireless pilot project in Halifax.
