Halifax Council meets with Courthouse, police chief on agenda / January 15, 2018

Halifax Town Council will meet Tuesday night with several issues on its plate, including renewal of Police Chief Stuart Comer’s contract and ongoing concerns about the Courthouse Renovation Project.

Council’s work session will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by the regular monthly session.

The meeting agenda includes a discussion on Comer’s contract, which is up for renewal. Council members also are expected to review a study on the Virginia Retirement System’s supplemental hazardous duty benefits package.

During the work session, Current Affairs committee chairman Bill Confroy will present an update on the Courthouse Renovation Project. VDOT is expected to host a public meeting later this month to consider a proposed change in the traffic pattern of Edmunds Boulevard to make the street one-way behind the courthouse.

The VDOT meeting is expected to involve town and county officials, nearby property owners, downtown business owners and all others affected by the traffic change. The meeting, which will take place in the last week of the month, is open to all members of the public.

The Town of Halifax issued a zoning permit for the county to begin reconstruction of the courthouse with the understanding that Edmunds Boulevard would remain as a two-way street — a condition that town officials have pointed out to the county.

With the shift to one-way traffic on Edmunds, the county has made changes to the planned location of several ADA parking spots without the town’s assent.

Confroy’s committee will also offer an update on the historic Clarkton Bridge as well as proposals to save the crumbling structure from demolition by VDOT.

Council is expected to draft a resolution honoring the late Councilman Cabell W. Daniel as well as receive a report on the indoor winter Farmer’s Market activities.
