Halifax County Supes eye next move on Courthouse

SoVaNow.com / May 20, 2013
The Halifax County Board of Supervisors will meet tonight to green-light negotiations of a contract for architectural and engineering services for the Halifax County Courthouse.

The special call meeting will take place at 6:30 in the second floor meeting room of the Mary Bethune Complex

During the regular May Board meeting, County Administrator Jim Halasz asked supervisors to schedule a special meeting to approve negotiations in order to keep the courthouse renovation project on schedule.

The Board has received a court order to sign a contract by June 3 for services associated with the courthouse renovation.

Last week, the supervisors’ Building and Grounds Committee interviewed three of nine firms that responded to the request for proposals on the project. The committee is expected to rank the top firms to bring back to the full Board for consideration tonight.

Supervisors may have other business to discuss tonight, although no more matters are listed on the agenda except for a possible closed session to discuss personnel, legal matters or potential business prospects.

Every time I read about this it makes me sick, how can a judges order for taxes to be paid to upgrade a court house. I hope that whoever the judge has his taxes go up triple. Courthouse is fine, with the economy the way it is, we shoud not have to spend money on this. These guys are suppose to be "public servants" they sure don't act like it.
