City Council will meet Tuesday, Dec. 6, in a special work session at 5:30 p.m. to discuss strategies to address violent crime. The Council’s regular business session will be held at 7 p.m., followed by its regular work session. All three 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 sessions 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 will vote on whether to accept state money to purchase two propane buses and construct a bus shelter. The buses will be used by Danville Transit to provide shuttle service along Mount Cross Road to Averett University’s north campus.
In October, the state approved a contract to fully finance the purchase of the buses and construction of a bus shelter for the new service. Averett University will provide contract revenue to offset operating costs for the new service. The bus service would start in August.
City Council also is scheduled to vote on several other matters:
For the second work session, the agenda includes the following items:
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.
