Halifax County supervisors meet tonight after month’s hiatus

SoVaNow.com / August 04, 2014
After skipping their regular July monthly meeting, members of the the Halifax County Board of Supervisors will convene tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the second floor meeting room of the Mary Bethune Complex in Halifax.

The Board has only one public hearing on the August agenda, to consider a request from Michael A. Allred for a conditional use permit in ED-6.

Allred is seeking a permit to open a plumbing and well drilling office at 2074 Old Cluster Springs Road.

In other scheduled business, supervisors will get an update on the Southern Virginia Higher Education’s Center of Excellence, one of three “mid-skills” job training facilities in Southside and Southwest Virginia. The South Boston center will focus on advanced manufacturing training in welding, industrial maintenance and precision machining.

Supervisors also will consider a $15,600 request from the Commissioner of Revenue to convert the county’s software for personal property and real estate taxes.

They will also consider a proposed amendment to the County Code for the office of Animal Control as well as the ownership of the C.H. Friend ball field.

Several appointments need to be made, including to fill a seat on the County Planning Commission in ED-6 and two vacancies on the Lake Country Area on Aging.
