Postponed Metro Council meeting happens tonight

MOORE COUNTY – Due to a Winter Weather Advisory and dangerous road conditions, Metro Mayor Bonnie Lewis postponed Monday night’s regular session Metro Council meeting until March 1. According to Mayor Lewis, the meeting was postponed rather than cancelled because there is a time sensitive zoning issue on the agenda. Zoning resolutions require three readings and a public hearing.

That zoning request involves .76 acres of land in the Hasty Hollow community belonging to Hobbs family. They are requesting that it be rezoned from A-1 agricultural to residential. The Metro Planning Commission reviewed and recommended the change.

In other new business, the Metro Highway Department will present their 2021 Roads Report. They plan to pave Ridgeville Road in 2021. The Metro Policy and Procedures Committee will also present updates to the Metro Employee Manual.

All Metro Council meetings are open to the general public. The March 1 meeting will be held at the Lynchburg Legion Building off Highway 129. If you have questions, contact your district’s council member or Mayor Lewis’s office. •
