Halifax County supervisors to recognize Cassada
SoVaNow.com / February 04, 2013Halifax County supervisors have no public hearings on the agenda for their regular monthly meeting tonight, which begins at 6:30 p.m. in the second floor meeting room of the Bethune Complex.
Supervisors will begin their monthly meeting with the presentation of a resolution to the family of the late Lt. Steve Cassada of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office, who died unexpectedly Jan. 5.
County Administrator Jim Halasz is expected to present the supervisors with an application for a Governor’s Agriculture & Forestry Industries Development Grant. The supervisors also are expected to confirm committee assignments for the coming year.
Halasz is set to provide an update on the controversy surrounding the proposed relocation of the Republican Grove Voting Precinct. Halasz will address the issue after talking both with members of the county Electoral Board and members of the North Halifax Volunteer Fire Department, where the precinct is currently located.
The controversy centers around conditions that Electoral Board members have said made voting harder for citizens. The fire station building had neither heat for the November general election nor air conditioning for the June Republican primary. But fire department members said there has been a miscommunication on the matter, and the department now has a new building which offers both air and heat and is available for use as a voter precinct.
A number of appointments are pending after several expired at the end of January. These include all seats on the Halifax County Improvement Council, as well as the term of Clark Graves on the County Planning Commission.
Also today, the Board of Supervisors finance committee will hold its initial budget meeting for 2014 at 3 p.m. in the County Administration meeting room with Finance Director Stephanie Jackson and County Administrator Halasz.
