Halifax County supervisors resume work after delay last week
SoVaNow.com / March 10, 2014
The Halifax County Board of Supervisors will meet tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the second floor meeting room of the Mary Bethune Complex, a week later than usual due to last week’s inclement weather.
The Board has one public hearing on its agenda — concerning an application for a conditional use permit by the W. A. Stratton Construction Company. The request is for Lee Pulliam Performance to operate a maintenance and repair shop for race cars at 2103 Alton Post Office Road in ED#6.
Supervisors also are expected to set public hearings for two other conditional use permit applications for their April meeting.
The board also will hear a presentation by a representative of the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service focusing on this year’s programs, activities and services.
Representatives of Davenport & Company will present an update on the requirements Halifax County must fulfill to obtain interim financing for Phase One of its Facilities Renovation Project. As county government prepares to shuffle offices with upgrade work to the Courthouse building, two renovations projects — at the County Administration building and the Mary Bethune Industrial Arts building — already are beginning to move forward.
Following their regular monthly session, supervisors will transition into their budget negotiations work session.
Citizens are reminded that all the departments of the County Administration including finance, building permits and zoning have now been relocated to the Mary Bethune Complex.
Visitors may enter the doors where they normally go to the Treasurer’s Office or Commissioner of the Revenue, where they will find signs directing them to the County Administration offices.
