Halifax County Supervisors meet tonight

SoVaNow.com / March 04, 2013
Halifax County supervisors will hold their regular monthly meeting tonight beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the second floor meeting room of the Mary Bethune Complex. There are no public hearings scheduled for the evening.

Supervisors will present a resolution honoring the late William L. Satterfield, highlighting his service as an educator and member of the Halifax County Electoral Board for some 15 years.

County Administrator Jim Halasz will bring several matters to the board, including a memorandum of agreement to provide financial support of $104,229 to the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center. The agreement, made last year, fulfills a matching fund requirement for a three-year Virginia Tobacco Commission grant. The Town of South Boston is offering a similar matching fund commitment.

Also, Halasz will revisit the issue of relocating the Republican Grove Precinct polling station after meeting with members of the Electoral Board and North Halifax Volunteer Fire Department. Halasz is recommending that the polling place be moved to the new NHVFD fire station. After the meeting between the two groups, Halasz reported, the Electoral Board’s concerns about space requirements, climate control, parking spaces and equipment accessibility have been resolved.

Halasz is also seeking board approval for submission of a Local Government Challenge Grant in the amount of $5,000. Halifax County has participated in the program for the past several years, receiving $2,500 for Little Theatre and another $2,500 for The Prizery.

Prior to the supervisors meeting today, the Finance Committee will meet in the second floor meeting room at 3:30 p.m. to discuss the county budget for FY2014.

Tax payers should not have to give any funds to the Little theater or the Prizery. WASTE! WASTE! WASTE! I hope that the BOS finance committee will not give them any money. But we the people that pay the bills are considered uncultured if we don't support the "arts" well all you people that go that crap, you pay for it!
