Tattoo parlor on South Boston agenda / November 27, 2017
South Boston Town Council will hold its monthly work session Monday at 5:45 p.m. in Council Chambers on Yancey Street.

The Current Issues Committee will first consider a request for a special use permit for a tattoo parlor to be opened in a B-2 General Business District at 4031 Halifax Road.

Town Planners will hold a public hearing on the issue at their Dec. 6 monthly meeting and Council will hold a public hearing on the request at their Dec. 11 meeting.

The committee will also consider appointments to the Planning Commission where the terms of chairman George Leonard, vice chairman Fields Thomas, members Harriett Claiborne and Beverly Crowder all expire at the end of December. All four have agreed to serve another four year term if Council wishes to reappoint them.

Committee members have also been advised that a meeting to review the request by Dominion Power to close Estes Street and a port of Oakes Street has been planned sometime during the week of Dec. 4-8 to discuss further Dominion and the Halifax County Service Authority’s concerns about the streets closure.

Also, the matter has turned over to members of the Town’s Board of Viewers to provide a recommendation on the request.

The committee also has been advised that the name of Jason McCormick has been suggested to be placed on the list of possible viewers to serve on the panel.

The Finance panel will receive an update on the Town’s monthly finances.

Lastly, Council is expected to enter into closed session to discuss the award of a public contract involving the expenditure of public funds where discussion in the open could adversely affect the bargaining position of the town.
