Members of Halifax Town Council will meet with the Halifax Planning Commission on Wednesday to review a special use permit for a potential new business in Halifax.

Prior to the commission’s recommendation and council’s action on the permit, a public hearing will be held at 7 p.m. at Halifax Town Hall for a special use permit application for Christopher Cole to allow “Home Occupation” at 1076 Mountain Road in Halifax.

His Halifax address is in a R-1 residential zone.

According to Town Manager Carl Espy, Cole plans to run a pest control business from his home.

At their March meeting, council members decided to postpone their April 9 meeting until April 24 because public hearings are typically held 60 days after filing an application.

The application was filed on Feb. 15.

In other action, council will hear the Halifax Police Department monthly report from Police Chief Stuart Comer and review proposed amendments to the Halifax Town Code “Health and Sanitation.”

The personnel committee will then go into closed session to continue discussion on a Halifax police officer position.

Prior to the public hearing and meeting, the business development, finance and current affairs chairmen will give reports during a 6:30 p.m. work session.
