Halifax welcomes member, reviews plan for buzzards
SoVaNow.com / July 29, 2013Halifax Town Council will meet in special session Tuesday for the swearing in of a new Council member, Janice B. Powell, by Judge Joel C. Cunningham Jr.
Council members also will hear a report from the Halifax Police Department on a recommendation for ridding the town of a public health nuisance — buzzards.
Council will host two public hearings, after which members are expected to take action on the requests. First up is a request by Larry Elam to obtain a special use permit to operate a mobile food unit, “Ollie’s Mobile Hotdog Cart” at 100 South Main Street (the location of the former Exxon station).
Second, Council will invite public comment on a request by Ronnie Duffey to obtain a special use permit to operate a home-based business in an R-1 residential zone at his home at 389 Lakeside Drive. Duffey wants to make small signs at his home.
Tuesday’s meeting will serve as a regular monthly Council session, thereby eliminating the need for an August meeting.
