Town of Hamilton
The following was among actions taken at the Feb. 11 meeting of the Hamilton Town Council. For more information, call 338-2811.
Following a public hearing at which no one objected to the plan, the Town Council agreed to borrow $200,000 from Virginia's Revolving Loan Fund to upgrade the town's Water and Waste Treatment Plant.
However, the council did not approve a proposed expenditure of $7,000 to revise the operation and maintenance manual for the plant. A new manual is required by state law when a plant is changed. Kay Tewell, Hamilton's secretary, treasurer and zoning administrator, said the council "wanted a better breakdown of the costs" for a new manual.
Town of Hillsboro
The following was among actions taken at the Feb. 5 meeting of the Hillsboro Town Council.
MEMORIAL FOR TULIP -- The Town Council agreed to work with the Hillsboro Community Association in its efforts to build a memorial to Barbara Tulip, who died recently. A 15 year resident of Hillsboro, Tulip was an active member of the PTA, the Community Center and an organizer of last year's Christmas Walk.
Town of Round Hill
The following was among the actions taken at the Feb. 7 meeting of the Round Hill Town Council.
INTERGATE -- Representatives of Intergate Co. donated $25,000 to the Round Hill Volunteer Fire Department. The donation was part of Intergate's application to have 1,330 acres of property bordering Round Hill re-zoned.
The application won approval from the Board of Supervisors last August, but that decision is being contested in court by a group of Round Hill landowners who maintain that Intergate's plans to build 1,100 homes and 150,000 square feet of commercial space on the property are in violation of the county's growth plan for the region, the Round Hill Area Management Plan.
The $25,000 was placed in an escrow account pending the results of the court action.
