The Sanitary Board, which oversees the city’s sewer system, meets Monday at 3:15 p.m. Agenda items include an update on the ongoing Phase II Sewer Project (stormwater separation), discussion of the Sylvester Drive Sewer Study, and review of financial information.

The Tree Board meets at 5:30 p.m. on Monday to discuss greenspace and interpretive opportunities for city parks. The Historic Landmarks Commission meets Tuesday, at 4 p.m.

On Wednesday, at 9 a.m., the Municipal Properties Committee will review draft design documents for paving, lighting, and other improvements to both the city employee and public parking areas behind city hall.  Also on Wednesday, at 5 p.m., the Parks and Recreation Commission meets to hear reports and review its ongoing pandemic precautions.

The agenda for Thursday’s council meeting is not yet complete. One item will be the final reading of an ordinance adopting any charter changes that were not objected to before the end of the November 9 public hearing.

As a reminder, per an order of the W. Va. Supreme Court, anyone appearing in Elkins Municipal Court, whether as a defendant or witness, must wear a face covering or be barred from entering. If you are on trial or under subpoena, this will be considered a failure to appear.

Fire Protection Service Fee bills will be mailed to customers with property outside the city on November 16. Utility bills are due November 18.
