Halifax County supervisors reorganize with start-of-year meeting
SoVaNow.com / January 07, 2013Halifax County supervisors will meet tonight at 6:30 p.m. for their annual reorganizational meeting. The meeting will take place in the second floor meeting room of the Mary Bethune Complex.
Supervisors will chose a chairman and vice chairman, as well as a clerk to lead their meetings for the coming year. They will also choose the rules of order they will follow throughout the year.
The Board has no public hearings on its agenda for this evening.
County Administrator Jim Halasz is asking supervisors to make as many appointments as possible since there are a number of expirations and vacancies on various boards and commissions.
The four-year terms of both Ted Bennett and Marcus Hargrave to the county’s Industrial Development Authority (IDA) expire at the end of this month. Bennett is eligible for re-appointment, but Hargrave is not since he has served two terms.
Also expiring at the end of January is the term of Clark Graves on the county’s Planning Commission. Graves is eligible for re-appointment.
The terms of three members of the Airport Commission, Gary A. Newcomb, Mark E. Stevens, and Coleman Speece, also expire at the end of this month. All three men are eligible for re-appointment.
The two-year terms of all members of the Improvement Council expire at the end of this month. There is also a vacancy on the Council in ED#7 with the resignation of Barry Tuck.
The three-year term on the Lake Country Area Agency on Aging held by Mrs. Brenda Tune-Fuller expired on September 30, 2012. She is eligible for re-appointment.
In old business carried over from the December meeting — concerning the location of the Republic Grove voting precinct — Halasz said late last week that he has not had time to get the two sides involved in the matter together. The county administrator said he hopes to talk with members of the North Halifax Volunteer Fire Department, who have previously hosted the precinct, and members of the Halifax County Electoral Board who sought the change in location of the precinct to resolve their differences.
