South Boston council considers choice for interim vice mayor
SoVaNow.com / March 25, 2013South Boston Town Council will consider the appointment of an interim vice mayor when members meet tonight for a monthly work session beginning at 5:45 p.m. in Council Chambers on Yancey Street.
The Current Issues Committee is expected to take up the appointment of an interim vice mayor, who would serve until the November 2013 general election. The position opened when Ed Owens, former Vice Mayor, was appointed by Council to serve as Interim Mayor following the death of Carroll Thackston. Owens also is serving in an interim capacity until November.
Also, the Current Issues Committee will receive the annual report of the South Boston Fire Department and review the findings of the Board of Viewers on the closing of Prospect Avenue and Grove Street, which Council earlier requested.
In addition to getting the monthly financial report, members of the Finance Committee will consider the issuance of general obligation bond to finance a $2.4 million renovation of the Washington Coleman Early Learning and Community Center. A public hearing is set on the matter for Council’s regular April 8 meeting.
Finance panel members will also consider staff recommendations for the 2013-2014 fiscal year budget. The draft $9.5 million town budget calls for no new tax or fee increases, no salary increases for town staff and a sharp decline in overall spending due to a dropoff of several capital improvement projects which will not be included in the upcoming budget. The new fiscal year starts July 1.
