City Council will meet Tuesday, Nov. 1, in a business session at 7 p.m., followed by a work session. Both sessions are open to the public.

The business session will be held in the Council Chambers on the fourth floor of the Municipal Building, which is located at 427 Patton St.

The work session will be held on the same floor, but across the hall in the Council Conference Room. In work sessions, Council reviews non-routine matters that will be voted upon in future business meetings.

During the business session, City Council is scheduled to vote on a resolution requesting the Virginia Department of Transportation to allocate $1.5 million for various street improvement projects. The projects are:

• drainage and sidewalk improvements on North Union Street between Spring Street and Memorial Drive.
• concrete base removal on Riverside Drive.
• removal of the sharp curve on Airport Drive.
• adding a third westbound lane on a portion of South Boston Road.

City Council also is scheduled to vote on three other matters:

• amending the City’s budget to provide for receipt of an $86,999 grant from the Department of Juvenile Justice for the W.W. Moore Jr. Detention Home.
• reappointing Russell Reynolds as a member of the Industrial Development Authority.
• reappointing T. Neal Morris as a member of the Industrial Development Authority.

For the work session, City Council will hear a presentation of a space needs study. City Council also will meet in a closed session for discussion concerning a prospective business or industry related to economic development.

River City TV, the city’s government access channel, will air the business session. Watch it live on cable (Comcast channel 10 and Gamewood channel 122) or streaming on the River City TV Facebook page and the city's YouTube channel — DanvilleVaGov.

River City TV does not air work sessions, but they are open to the public.
