Halifax presses, authority resists

South Boston News
Frank Booker of Halifax protests outside the Halifax County administrative offices Thursday to object to the plan to build a $600,000 building for the Service Authority, which manages water and sewer. The Service Authority's meeting was Thursday afternoon, and Booker took his protest there, too, calling on the Authority's director, Willie Jones, and County Supervisor Doug Bowman, who chairs the Authority, to resign. Booker says the Authority should relocate to a more modest facility and cites the many vacant buildings available. Several members of the Halifax Town Council also spoke in opposition to new construction. Halifax Town Mayor Dick Moore asked if the building represented a need or a want; he was told it was a need. Their pleas fell on deaf ears, however, as the Service Authority Board took a unanimous vote of confidence in Jones and did not re-consider their building plans.
Members of Halifax Town Council, joined by Mayor Dick Moore, appeared before the Halifax County Service Authority on Thursday afternoon to question the Authority’s plans for a new $600,000 building — only to be told that the facility is “a done deal” and not subject to change.
