South Boston Council meets tonight / March 12, 2018
South Boston Town Council meets tonight at 7 p.m., at which time members are expected to pass a resolution memorializing late Council member Billy Clarke.

Council is also expected to vote on sharing the cost of a community development study, the Vision 20/20 Plan, that is being prepared by an outside consultancy. Council members will consider a recommendation to pay $7,500 this year for implementation of the plan and give another $7,500 in the next fiscal year. Last week, Halifax County supervisors voted to spend $50,000 to help pay for the study.

Council members are also expected to request the transfer of $269,416 from the town’s Capital Depreciation Fund to pay for a new street sweeper and an administrative vehicle.

Council has been asked to co-sponsor the second annual Strawberry Festival by making a $500 donation. Proceeds from the event have been earmarked for the Southern Virginia Botanical Gardens for the Healthy Harvest Community Garden.

Members are also considering funding somewhere between $300 to $500 for Ward Burton’s Wildlife Bird Adopt-A-Box Nesting Program, which will provide birding habitat to attract warblers to the banks of the Dan River.

Council is also expected to approve a 2018 Emergency Operations Plan, and members will also consider the Town’s top projects to be included in the Regional Strategic Plan for Southern Virginia.
