Halifax County supervisors to consider help for animal control / August 11, 2014
The Halifax County Board of Supervisors will consider steps to raise more revenue for the county Animal Control Office in light of increasing demands on the department from county residents.

The animal control budget is one of several issues that members of the finance committee are expected to take up at a meeting Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. in the lower level meeting room of the Halifax County Administration Office on Cowford Road.

County Administrator Jim Halasz alerted supervisors last week to problems with under staffing of the Animal Control office, which has been called upon to handle an increasing number of service calls.

Halasz offered several suggestions for supervisors to consider in trying to increase revenues to bring Animal Control’s revenues more in line with its expenses.

Also on the finance committee’s agenda is funding for the renovation of the Halifax Courthouse, and a rental agreement between the schools and the county for space that the school division uses at the Mary Bethune Complex in Halifax.

"County Administrator Jim Halasz advised board members that he feels approval of the easement would benefit the county by limiting unauthorized use to the rear of the property." That's right bend it over for the federal government. "Halasz offered several suggestions for supervisors to consider in trying to increase revenues to bring Animal Control’s revenues more in line with its expenses." Can't wait to hear.


Moser always needs more people. Edmunds ran the department with class and efficiency. Moser wants to be the boss to sit in the office and delegate. Many years ago Luther Matthews handled all of Halifax County and South Boston and the population was LARGER. Moser got booted from the SoBo Police Department for a reason. Get another supervisor for animal control, save a little money.
