Board and Commission Openings
Last modified on December 15th, 2022 at 04:00 pm
Update as of December 15: Applications are still being accepted for the three open seats on the Board of Zoning Appeals. Apply today! (See instructions at the bottom of this post.)
Applications are being accepted through Wednesday, December 7 from persons interested in filling vacancies on several area boards and commissions. Many important city policies and projects are designed and managed not by the mayor and council but by the city’s boards and commissions. Citizen volunteers who serve on these bodies play a vital role in city governance. Maybe you’d like to get involved!
The following boards and commissions have vacancies:
Randolph County Board of Health
This board oversees the Elkins-Randolph County Health Department. There is one vacancy; applicants must be city residents. This board meets bi-monthly.
Board of Zoning Appeals
This board hears appeals to zoning decisions, such as when the city’s zoning officer denies a certain use in a certain location. There are three vacancies; applicants must have resided in Elkins for at least three years. This board meets rarely, for periodic administrative work and as needed in response to an appeal.
Board of IPMC Appeals
This board hears appeals to citations issued for violations of the International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC). There is one vacancy; applicants must be residents of Randolph County but do not need to live in Elkins.

This board meets rarely, for periodic administrative work and as needed in response to an appeal.
