City Hall News: Week of April 25, 2022

The only meeting scheduled for this week is that of council’s ad hoc Committee on Boards and Commissions. There will be Arbor Day observances on Friday and an Earth Day Celebration on Saturday.

The Committee on Boards and Commissions meets Wednesday at 9 a.m. This committee was formed to review city and state statutes establishing and regulating all city boards and commissions, as well as external boards and commissions to which the Elkins council has appointment authority. After this week’s review of the Elkins Water Board and the Board of Trustees of the Elkins-Randolph County Public Library, the committee will have concluded its work and will be dissolved.

The Elkins Tree Board will commemorate Arbor Day at 2 p.m. on Friday at Glendale Park, near the Pollinator Alley area. At 5 p.m., a tree will be planted at Bluegrass Park by members of the Emma Scott Garden Club.

There will be an Earth Day Celebration at Elkins City Park on Saturday, 12-2 p.m. The event will feature crafting and other activities for children, informational displays, and interactive games. All events are free and will take place rain or shine.

First quarter business and occupation (B&O) tax returns are due by the end of the month.

All meetings are open to the public and, unless otherwise stated, held at Elkins City Call (401 Davis Avenue). Find agendas and other meeting information here:
