SoBo council meets tonight / February 24, 2009
South Boston Town Council will hold its regular monthly committee work session this afternoon beginning at 5:45 p.m. in Council Chambers of Yancey Street.
The Current Issues Committee has several items on its agenda for consideration including the annual report from the Fire Department.
Phillips and Alan Auld, Director of Public Works for the town, will also address the issue of having building address numbers which will make it easier for rescue personnel to identify specific locations. The Current Issues Committee members will also consider the recommendation of the Planning Commission to allow the old theater building at 532 North Main Street to be used as a dance hall. That issue will be the subject of a public hearing during Council's March 9 meeting. Members will also discuss another issue which is the subject of a public hearing on March 9 — that of the Town's Infill Housing Project. South Boston has received a Community Improvement Planning grant to identify potential housing sites within the town that can be acquired. The sites must be suitable building lots which have road access and water and sewer accessibility. Owners of such sites who wish to sell their property should contact the Town Manager.
Finance Committee members will review the monthly financial statement, and Town Manager Ted Daniel is expected to update members on several on-going projects including the Comprehensive Plan, the decision of the Board of Zoning Appeals as it pertains to the Internet Cafe, the proposed composting facility, the Town's landfill gas project and funding sources for it as well as the Houghton Park Office building.
