South Boston council to hear from Lineburg / October 07, 2018
South Boston Town Council will hear from Halifax County Public School superintendent Mark Lineburg when they gather Tuesday at 7 p.m., a day later than usual due to the Columbus Day holiday, in Council chambers on Yancy Street.

Lineburg is expected to report on the school board’s plan to either renovate or rebuild Halifax County High School as well as plans for local elementary schools, which may include having only four elementary schools rather than the current seven.

Council is also expected to recognize retiring South Boston Police Capt. B. K. Lovelace for the 30 years of service he has given to the town. Lovelace, citing health problems, announced at the end of August that he officially retired at the end of September.

Council will also finalize plans to donate a town-owned lot on Arch Street to the South Boston IDA for economic purposes.

They are also expected to name Steve Meadows to serve another term on the town’s Transportation Safety Commission.

As always Council will open the floor to allow citizens to bring any complaints or problems to their attention.
