Halifax Council to review contract for new police chief Tuesday

SoVaNow.com / February 13, 2017
Halifax Town Council meets Tuesday with committee work sessions beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Council is expected to finalize an employment contract with town police chief Stuart Comer following a closed session. Comer was named chief following the departure of Kevin Lands to lead the Town of Haymarket police department.

Also Tuesday, Council is expected to set a public hearing for its March 14 monthly session to consider a rezoning request from the Halifax County Historical Society. The society wants to rezone property at 111 Mountain Road from R-1 to R-2 to allow for the former home of the late Frank Chaffin to become its official headquarters.

Council is also expected to approve the donation of an emergency generator for the town’s Police Department from Mid Atlantic Broadband Corporation.

Council also hopes to enlist several new members to its Planning Commission to serve for the next several years. Several Planning Commission members have been unable to attend recent meetings which has resulted in postponed meeting due to the lack of a quorum of members present.

During committee reports the Business Development group will bring a report on activities at the winter Farmer’s Market while finance panel members will report on delinquent tax payments which need to be addressed.

The finance panel will soon begin deliberations on the upcoming fiscal year budget.
