West, Claiborne to lead Halifax County supervisors

SoVaNow.com / January 10, 2013
The Halifax County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Monday to keep Chairman Tom West and Vice Chairman Bryant Claiborne in their respective leadership posts for the upcoming year.

The supervisors also voted to continue their regular schedule of meeting on the first Monday night of each month at 6:30 p.m. and to follow Roberts Rules of Order. The supervisors also named County Administrator Jim Halasz and Debbie Forlines to serve in their current roles as Board Clerk and Deputy Clerk, respectively.

With no public hearings on the agenda, supervisors raced through a very short, 30-minute public session after dispensing with organizational matters. They did approve an amended schedule for ten events at VIR during the year.

Supervisors were further advised by County Administrator Halasz that he had met with members of the voter registration office on Monday. Halasz said he hopes to meet with representatives of the North Halifax Volunteer Fire Department later this week in an effort to iron out differences between the two groups over the location of the Republic Grove voting precinct.

Halasz said he will report back to the full board with his findings at the February 4 monthly session.

In other business, following a closed session Board members voted to re-appoint three members of the Airport Commission — Gary A. Newcomb, Mark Stevens and Coleman Speece — to new three year terms.

Earlier in their regular session, Board members said they would delay making any other appointments until their February meeting.

Supervisor J. T. Davis was absent from the Monday night meeting.
