South Boston council meets with light September agenda / September 13, 2021

South Boston Town Council will gather tonight at 7 p.m. with a light agenda on tap for the September monthly meeting.

Council is expected to vote on a plan by the Southside Planning District Commission to reduce its board of directors from 28 to 17 members. The SSPDC is asking to shrink its board to make it more responsive to the needs of communities in the three-county planning district of Halifax, Mecklenburg and Brunswick. The SSPDC office is located in South Hill.

Under the proposal, South Boston’s representation on the board would shrink from four to two. Halifax and Mecklenburg counties would be left with five directors, Brunswick would have three, and South Hill and South Boston would each have two board members.

Also at tonight’s meeting, Council members are set to hear from Tamyra Vest of Destination Downtown South Boston on the outcome of the Small Business Grant Recovery Program, overseen by DDSB.

Council members also will designate 2021 Constitution Week and name Mayor Ed Owens as South Boston’s voting delegate at the annual meeting of the Virginia Municipal League in Leesburg on Oct. 4.

Tonight’s meeting will be held at Council Chambers on Yancey Street. The meeting is open to the public.
