SoVaNow.com / October 08, 2012
Halifax Town Council will meet tomorrow night, Tuesday, Oct. 9 for its regular monthly meeting, immediately following the end of committee work sessions that begins at 6:30 p.m. in Town Hall.

Business Development chairman Phil Hammond will bring reports from Events Coordinator Susi Robbins and another from Denise Barksdale on the Village Association and Farmer’s Market activities as well as an update on the community clock project being carried out by the association.

Hammond is also expected to update fellow council members on the scheduled Oct. 20 for the grand opening of the new Dollar General Store which had its “soft opening” Thursday.

Finance chairman Holt Evans will update fellow council members on the September finance report and the annual audit. He will also discuss the status of a proposal to sell part of the Farmer’s Market property as well as reporting on improvements (bathroom facilities) made to the interior of the Farmers Market building.

Updates to the notices of derelict properties within the town will also be discussed as will the status of an Industrial Revitalization Fund Grant (IFG) for the Burlington Property. Also expected are updates to the interview selection timetable for the police chief selection.

Current Affairs chairman Bill Confroy will bring two issues to his fellow council members that he expects to have put on the agenda for the joint session with Council members of South Boston and the Halifax County Supervisors on Oct. 15 — the designation of the Banister River as a State Scenic River and discussion of the Halifax County Library System.

He will also report on communications with Kruger Energy which owns the Banister River Dam project which resulted in a very low water level during the summer months. Also expected is an update on the engineering design construction award for the Banister River Gateway Project.
