South Boston Council meets tonight with fire station on agenda / January 13, 2020

South Boston Town Council is set to meet tonight at 7 p.m. with a light agenda to start off the new year.

Council members are slated to hear from Steven Gay with the certified public accounting firm Harris, Harvey and Neal as Gay presents the town’s 2018-2019 financial report.

Members also will be asked to approve a final construction contract for an addition to the South Boston fire station. In December, Council agreed to issue a notice to proceed with construction of the new building wing, at an estimated cost of $1.3 million.

With the building addition, South Boston firefighters will be able to park all their vehicles inside, including the county ladder truck, the largest vehicle in the local firefighter fleet. The new wing also will create more room for personnel and department operations.

The only other items on tonight’s agenda are the monthly financial report by Finance Director Mickey Wilkerson, and the citizen comment period.
