Chesapeake, South Point councils meet

Chesapeake and South Point’s village councils met this week in their regular sessions.

In Chesapeake, the council approved a new ticketing system for the village, in which officers can use tablets to write citations and print them off from their cruisers, council member Paul Hart said.

The system would also allow them to file the information from the road.

The council also discussed the matter of purchasing new police cruisers, but the matter was tabled.

The council also approved four new holidays for the village, Hart said.

In South Point, Mayor Jeff Gaskins said they had a relatively short meeting of 27 minutes, the first at the new meeting time of 7 p.m.

He said no major business or discussions took place this month, but a local Boy Scout troop stopped by to observe as part of their work toward a merit badge in local government.

Gaskin said work on replacing the floors in village hall was complete.

Chesapeake’s council will meet next at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 2 and South Point’s council will meet at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3.
