Halifax Town Council gathers Tuesday for meeting / March 12, 2018
Halifax Town Council will hold its regular meeting on Tuesday beginning with a work session at 6:30 p.m. in Town Hall.

A representative of the Virginia Department of Transportation is expected to be present to discuss the future of Clarkton Bridge, which VDOT is proposing to dismantle. Under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, the department is conducting outreach to historic preservation groups and other bridge stakeholders on plans for the century-old span, which is in poor condition and has been closed to pedestrian traffic since 2015.

Also during the work session, Denise Barksdale will update Council members on the activities at the Farmers Market. She also is expected to outline plans for the 2018 Earth Day Extravaganza and Halicraft Art Festival.

Finance Chairman Bill Covington will advise council members of the revised budget work session schedule as well as that for the amended FY2017-18 budget.

Current Affairs Committee chairman Bill Confroy will present an update on the town’s derelict/nuisance properties code and its enforcement.

Council is then scheduled to go into regular monthly session, during which time Police Chief Stuart Comer will bring his monthly report and Council will discuss the appointments of Planning Commission members.
