Halifax Town Council meets Tuesday / January 07, 2019
Halifax Town Council committees will meet in work session Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. to organize for the coming year, followed by the regular monthly meeting of Council.

During the work session, incoming Mayor Dexter Gilliam is set to make committee assignments and spell out the steps for the nomination and election of a vice-mayor. Gilliam and the full Council also will present a resolution honoring previous mayor Kristy Johnson.

Council members will further consider candidates to replace outgoing town planning commission member Jerry Epps.

The business development, finance and current affairs committees are each set to take up business in the new year. The finance committee will review the town’s annual audit and June 2018 financial statement, compiled by Creedle Jones & Alga, CPAs, and the business development committee will review the county agriculture and forestry strategic plan and agritourism update, led by assistant town manager Denise Barksdale.

The current affairs committee will review the Market Street Services Community Strategic Plan: Community Assessment Report, which is being presented by the Halifax County Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday night at the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center.

The current affairs committee is also expected to endorse legislation by Del. James Edmunds to permit Halifax County to impose a local option sales tax for school capital improvement projects.

Immediately after the work session, starting at about 7 p.m., Council will go into regular session and act on committee recommendations. Members also are set to take up proposed amendments to the Town Code, including steps to curb the spread of bamboo and require the cleanup of weeds and debris on derelict properties.

The work session and regular meeting of Town Council are open to the public.
