South Boston councill to convene Tuesday for committee work
SoVaNow.com / May 26, 2014
South Boston Town Council committee members will gather on Tuesday, May 27 at 5:45 p.m. in Council chambers, a day later than usual due to the Memorial Day holiday.
Finance panel members will review the monthly financial report and consider a request to charge off certain delinquent taxes that may be uncollectable.
Members will also consider a proposed amendment to the town code which would add a local license plate tax on those vehicle owners that do not display a current Virginia license plate. They will also consider setting a fee for vendor business licenses for the Town’s annual Harvest Festival.
The Current Issues Committee will discuss the Planning Commission recommendation to conditionally rezone a vacant lot fronting on Huell Matthews Highway south of the Dan River from DRDan River District to R-4 High Density Residential to allow for multi-family residential apartments. The change has been requested by John Cannon and Ward Burton.
Planners will also consider the rezoning request from Ray Conner to change a vacant lot on Parker Avenue from R-2 Medium Density Residential to B-1 Neighborhood business to permit a personal service business there.
In other business, CIC members will discuss an amendment to set fines for dogs running at large and a charter amendment to the Central Virginia Justice Academy. They will also consider the town’s contribution rate for its employees to the Virginia Retirement System as well as several appointments which need to be made in June, including a position on the County Industrial Development Authority and the Library system board.
CommentsLooks like they're not giving up on that unlicensed vehicle tax. They'll spend more enforcing it than they'll ever collect from it.
Let 'em run afoul of the CoV. After they try to defend it in court a couple times they'll realise it was a solution in search of a problem, and one that should have been left alone.
I wonder where these wonks dream this stuff up. God forbid they'd ever learn to live within their means.
