South Boston council meets tonight

SoVaNow.com / August 11, 2014
South Boston Town Council will meet tonight in council chambers on Yancey Street beginning at 7 p.m. with a very light agenda on tap.

Council will consider a vacancy on the County Recreation Advisory Committee and also a second vacancy on the Library Board.

However, following Council’s recent work session, it was recommended that the appointment to the Library Board be delayed until Council’s September meeting.

Town staff is expected to update Council members on a request for improvements to the Prescott Lane - Owens Avenue area as well as a considering a scenic river designation for the Dan River.

Staff will also update Council members on the use of the CDBG Planning Grant which the town received last spring to fund a study for the Downtown South Boston Master Plan.
