Town Council Preview: Business License Exemption Program

Council will discuss an ordinance to repeal the business license exemption program for new businesses due to possible impacts from federal sequestration.

Tuesday night's Herndon Town Council work session will begin with a joint work session with the Planning Commission to review the project status for the FY 2013-2018 Capital Improvement Program. 

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Herndon Council Chambers building. The regular Herndon Council work session will begin after the joint work session. 

Two public hearing items that were continued from last week's public hearing are returning to the work session agenda.

One is for an application for a special exception for a home-based child daycare with a maximum of 12 children. The other is a zoning ordinance text amendment for the new downtown planned zoning district and pattern book. 

The council will also discuss an ordinance to repeal the business license exemption program for new businesses. 

In the staff report, Director of Finance Mary Tuohy said Business Professional Occupational License taxes may be decreasing significantly in the future due to federal sequestration, and it may be prudent for the town to end the incentive program.

The work session will also include to resolutions to award contracts, for quarterly brochure printing and mailing and a hybrid pickup truck. 

The meeting will end with a briefing on rain gardens in the down by the Director of Public Works, Bob Boxer, before the council goes into a closed meeting to discuss appointments to boards and commissions.
