City Council will meet Tuesday, April 3, in a business session and two work sessions. All three sessions are open to the public.
Council's meeting will begin with a special work session at 5:30 p.m. to hear a presentation from City Manager Ken Larking on his proposed budget for the next fiscal year, which begins July 1. City Council will hold work sessions over the following weeks to review the proposed budget. Public hearings will be scheduled at a later date.
The business session will begin at 7 p.m. and will be held in the Council Chambers on the fourth floor of the Municipal Building, which is located at 427 Patton St.
The second work session will follow the business session. Work sessions are held on the same floor as the business session, 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 rename a portion of the U.S. 58/29 bypass as the “Wendell O. Scott Sr. Memorial Highway.”
Scott is a Danville native and NASCAR Hall of Fame driver.
City Council also is scheduled to vote on several other matters Tuesday night:
During the second work session, City Council will discuss purchase of the apartment building at 205 Jefferson Ave., a community garden license with Right Touch Ministry, and a city code change related to the name change for the Danville Public Library.
In addition, City Council will hear a presentation on recommendations of the mayor’s committee on entrance signs, and it will hold a closed meeting during the work session as allowed by state law for consultation with legal counsel, discussion of acquisition or disposition of real property, and discussion of 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.
River City TV does not air work sessions, but they are open to the public.
