Halifax Town Council holds Tuesday meeting / December 09, 2019
Halifax Town Council will meet Tuesday to hold a public hearing on a permit request by Erin Shaughnessy to operate a direct-to-market apparel business from her Mountain Road home. A vote on the matter is expected afterward.

The topic is one of numerous items on the agenda for the monthly Council meeting and work session at Halifax Town Hall on Tuesday, Dec. 10. The meeting begins with the 6:30 p.m. work session and committee updates, followed by the full Council session at 7 p.m. It is open to the public.

Shaughnessy, a seller of LuluRoe apparel, has come before Council several times in the past few months seeking permission to run her business out of her 615 Mountain Road home. Council initially denied her request, citing restrictions in the town’s ordinance for home-based business, but members later amended the code section to allow Shaughnessy to proceed.

The public hearing is set at 7 p.m. Shaughnessy’s request for a special use permit will be considered under the newly amended town code.

Also at the meeting, Council members will hear from the Business Development, Finance and Current Affairs committees, on topics ranging from streetscape improvements to the enhancement project for the Halifax War Memorial.

Council will also hold a public hearing on a grant application to USDA Rural Development to pay for replacement sanitation and police department vehicles.

Prior to the meeting, Council members will gather for their annual holiday social at 5 p.m.
