The Office of the City Treasurer is hosting another adoptable cat from the Randolph County Humane Society. Jerry is a short-haired, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped male. For a limited time, the humane society is offering a reduced holiday adoption fee of just $20. If you think you might be interested in adopting Jerry, please put on a mask and stop by city hall to meet him. For more information, call RCHS: (304) 636-7844.
The Operations Department requests that bagged glass and yard waste not be left outside the gates of or next to containers at the recycling drop-off site on Jones Drive, near Robert E. Lee Avenue and the Flood Control Road. This practice creates unsightly and unsanitary conditions, and cleaning the resulting mess diverts city personnel from more valuable work.
Through December 14, Toys for Tots collection boxes will be located in the city hall lobby and at WalMart, Big Lots, Dollar General, and Walgreens. This program, coordinated this year by Phil Gainer Community Center manager Chris Lee, provides presents for area children who might otherwise go without.
All of us at City of Elkins wish you a happy, safe Thanksgiving celebration.
