A 2020 updated natural hazard mitigation plan prepared by the Southside Planning District Commission is up for consideration by Halifax Town Council when they meet Tuesday.
Town council is set to meet at 6:30 p.m. for their work session with the regular business meeting to immediately follow.
Council also is slated to review the police department’s report for the month of November submitted by Halifax Police Chief Stuart Comer.
Business development chairman Mike Trent is expected to update council with several items of business in the work session preceding the regular business meeting.
Among the updates are Halifax Market Place redevelopment and farmer’s market activities, including a ribbon cutting at the newly opened Viny’s Italian Restaurant set for Sunday, progress of “Here’s Halifax!” working groups and CARES Act resources for localities and local businesses.
Finance chairman Bill Covington also is slated to present the town’s November 2020 finance reports, the status of 2020 real estate and personal property taxes, and the Creedle Jones & Alga, PC annual audit for June 2020 financial statement report.
Before the council work session wraps up, current affairs chairman Bill Confroy plans to brief council on the status of the VDOT Smart Scale Project and Halifax Downtown Streetscape/ War Memorial Enhancement Project.
He also is slated to share plans for the Virginia Scenic Rivers Program 50th Anniversary activities, including the Crossing of the Dan 240th Anniversary commemoration set for Feb. 20 at Constitution Square in South Boston.
Finally, Confroy is expected to give an update on derelict/ nuisance properties and code enforcement and will present the 2020 updated natural hazard mitigation plan and resolution up for adoption during council’s regular business meeting.
The current affairs update will be the long-term councilman’s last as a member of town council, as his term expires at the end of December and he did not seek re-election.
