Public hearing tonight on South Boston budget / May 10, 2010
South Boston Town Council will host a public hearing Monday on the Town’s proposed 2010-2011 fiscal year budget, which goes into effect July 1. The budget calls for no tax or fee increases.

As proposed, the $8,489,114 general fund budget is 7.3 percent lower than the $9,158,810 budget for the current year. It is based on the current real estate tax rate of 19 cents per $100 value.

Final approval of a franchise renewal agreement with Comcast Cable is also expected at tonight’s Council meeting. Members have been discussing the agreement over the past several months.

Council also is expected to approve a fair housing resolution, as well as ratify two appointments to the Halifax County Service Authority. Dexter Gilliam and Stewart Nelson have each been recommended for four-year terms. This will be the second term on the authority board for Gilliam, while Nelson will be taking over the seat now held by Rick Harrell.
