Oct. 6, 2017 - City Council will meet Wednesday evening at Jones Magnet Middle School to consider expanding the special downtown zone and adding a lifetime license for pets, among other items.
Public hearings will be held on:
City Council will consider the option of allowing residents to purchase a lifetime license for their pets, which the General Assembly began allowing July 1. The proposal is that the lifetime license would cost $20 per pet, compared with the current fee of $10 per year (or $4 for neutered and spayed pets). The lifetime license would be a convenience for residents and would reduce the administrative costs in the Treasurers office. Residents would still have the option of buying annual licenses if they prefer.
Hampton is getting increasing complaints from residents about inoperable vehicles that remain on someone's property for long periods of time. Council will get a briefing on potential changes that could be made in regulating inoperable vehicle in residential areas.
Council's afternoon work session will be in the Superintendent's Conference room at Jones Magnet Middle School at 5 p.m., but only closed-session items are on the agenda. A tour of waterfront sites scheduled for 2:30 p.m. was canceled due to weather.
Meetings are open to the public, except closed sessions. The evening meeting is at 6:30 p.m. at Jones Magnet Middle School, 1819 Nickerson Blvd. It will be broadcast live on the Hampton TV: Cox 47 and Fits 22 and streamed at http://hampton.gov//tv .
