South Boston Town Council is expected to vote on an appropriation resolution at Monday’s meeting amending the current year budget by $135,000.
Monday’s meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. at council chambers located at 502 Yancey Street, comes one week early due to the Veteran’s Day holiday.
Council advanced the amendment issue to Monday’s meeting after discussing it at the Oct. 28 work session.
Finance director Mickey Wilkerson explained the reason for the amendment as a recommendation from auditors Harris, Harvey, Neal and Company that the town reflect revenue from monies received from police, security, various fire department grants and reimbursements from accidents as revenue line items, rather than a reimbursement to the department’s expenditure line item.
New revenue line items for reimbursement reflect totals of $135,000, including $100,000 for police department reimbursement; $16,000 for fire department reimbursement; a$15,000 for public works reimbursement; and $4,000 for a Virginia Municipal League safety grant.
Expenditures total $135,000, including $93,000 for police department overtime; $7,000 for police department FICA; $4,000 for fire department first responder supplies; $9,000 for fire department equipment replacement; $3,000 for fire department gas and oil; $15,000 for street department materials and supplies; and $4,000 for a Virginia Municipal League safety grant.
In other agenda items, council is expected to hear presentations from recreation director Matthew McCargo, and Brian Brown, executive director for the Halifax County Industrial Development Authority.
A citizen comment period is scheduled for the end of Monday’s meeting.
