South Boston to hold public hearings

SoVaNow.com / May 13, 2013
South Boston Town Council has two public hearings on its agenda for the meeting this evening which begins at 7 p.m. in council chambers on Yancey Street.

The first deals with a recommendation from the town’s Planning Commission to approve a special use permit allowing the property at 1019 Wilborn Avenue to be used as a vehicle repair business on the condition that all work is done inside the building.

The second hearing focuses on receiving citzens’ comments on the town’s proposed $9.5 million budget for the coming fiscal year which includes no increases in taxes or fees and calls for no salary increases for personnel.

Council members will also be asked to approve the 211 page 2013 Hazard Mitigation Plan which was prepared by the Southside Planning District.

The plan covers Brunswick, Halifax and Mecklenburg Counties and their twelve incorporated towns and defines hazard mitigation “as any sustained action to reduce or eliminate long term risks to human life and property” from hazards such as hurricanes, tropical storms, winter storms, flooding, severe thunderstorms, hail, high wind, tornadoes, earthquakes and wild fires.

The goal is to save lives and reduce property damages while remaining cost effective and environmentally sound.
