Elkins, W. Va., August 14, 2021: Meeting next week are the Elkins Sanitary Board, the Elkins Historic Landmarks Commission, and council’s Collaboration & Marketing, Municipal Properties, and Rules & Ordinances Committees. The Personnel Committee’s regular August meeting has been cancelled. Council meets Thursday.
Monday at 3:15 p.m., the Sanitary Board—which oversees the city’s sewer system—will review financial statements and invoices.
Tuesday at 9 a.m., the ad hoc Collaboration & Marketing Committee meets for further consideration of how the committee can best achieve its goals of strengthening community cooperation and making Elkins as attractive as possible for new residents and businesses.
Later Tuesday, at 4 p.m., the Historic Landmarks Commission meets to continue discussion of the possibility of extending the boundaries of the Downtown Historic District. The commission will also hear a report from its County Commission Committee and an update concerning Maplewood Cemetery.
Wednesday at 9 a.m., the Municipal Properties Committee will meet on an agenda that includes the items “downtown sound system” and “W. Va. Coalition Against Domestic Violence parking.”
On Wednesday at 10:30 a.m., the Rules & Ordinances Committee will work on finalizing its recommendations to council concerning additional authorities to be sought under the West Virginia Municipal Home Rule Program. Since 2015, Elkins has participated in this program, which enables cities to apply for authority to adopt local ordinances that differ from state code requirements. The committee will also discuss the vacant properties registration ordinance.
Council meets Thursday at 7 p.m. The agenda may be adjusted through Tuesday. Current items include action on any of the Rules & Ordinances Committee’s recommendations for new home-rule authorities, review of the Elkins Tree Board’s application for a West Virginia Department of Forestry Demonstration Grant (to fund next spring’s downtown tree plantings), and the appointment of two new members to the Board of Zoning Appeals.
Utility bills and in-city Fire & Rescue Service Fee payments are due to the Treasurer’s Department by Wednesday.
