Tattoo parlor permit tops South Boston council agenda / December 11, 2017

South Boston Town Council will host a public hearing tonight on a request for a special use permit to allow a tattoo parlor to operate in the Centerville business district. Town Planners have recommended approval of the request.

Also tonight, Council members will hear a report from the town board of viewers on a request by Dominion Virginia Power to close Estes Street and a portion of Oakes Avenue. Several meetings between Dominion officials and the staff of the Halifax County Service Authority, which has a water tank behind the Dominion office on North Main Street, have been held to work out a mutually satisfactory agreement by both parties.

Also, the terms of several members of the Planning Commission — chairman George Leonard and vice chairman Fields Thomas and members Harriett Claiborne and Beverly Crowder — expire this month. Council is expected to act on a recommendation that they all be re-appointed to serve another term.

Also, the name of Jason McCormick has been recommended for a future appointment on boards of viewers.

The Council meeting is set to begin at 7 p.m. at Council Chambers on 502 Yancey Street.
