South Boston council to hold work session today / February 26, 2018
South Boston Town will hold its regular monthly work session today at 5:45 p.m. in Council chambers on Yancey Street.

Members have an unusually long agenda, beginning with appointment of a council member to serve on the Current Issues Committee. The appointee, to be named by Mayor Ed Owens, will fill the seat left vacant with the passing of Council member Billy Clarke.

The Finance Committee will hear from Ward Burton, who is lining up sponsors for the Wildlife Bird Adopt-A-Box project. Burton hopes to set up 100 nesting boxes for the warbler, which inhabit areas downstream to Buggs Island Lake on both the Dan and Banister rivers.

The finance panel will also consider transferring $269,416 from its Capital Depreciation Fund to buy a new street sweeper and a vehicle for the use of town administration.

Members also will consider a contribution of $15,000 for the Strategic Planning Project, which the county is also being asked to support.

Vinny Sarnataro has asked the Town to donate $500 to support the second annual Strawberry Festival which he plans to host in May in Halifax Square Shopping Center.

Members are also being asked by the Historical Society to waive the $101 delinquent tax fee on two lots in the town.

Fire Chief Steve Phillips will provide an update on the Emergency Operations Plan to members of the Current Issue Committee, and the committee will ask Town Planners to amend the town code to allow micro breweries/distilleries to locate in B-2, B-3 and B-4 zones.
