City Hall News: Week of December 19, 2022

The only governing body scheduled to meet this week is the Elkins Parks and Recreation Commission. Utility bills are due Monday. City hall closes at noon Friday.

Monday is also the last day donations can be accepted for the 2022 Elkins area Toys for Tots campaign. There are drop-off boxes at the Phil Gainer Community Center, Elkins City Hall, and many businesses throughout Randolph County.

The Parks and Recreation Commission meets Wednesday at 5 p.m. The agenda includes City Park horseshoe pits, endorsement of alcohol service for 2023 events, and an MOU with Randolph County Public Schools to make the Phil Gainer Community Center an emergency reunification site.

City Councilor Clint Higgins (Third Ward) has resigned. Applications will be accepted until Friday from Third Ward residents interested in being appointed to fill his seat until the 2023 election.

Elkins City Hall will close at noon Friday. Trash will be collected on the usual schedule all week. Trash will not be collected on Monday, December 26. Trash normally collected Mondays will be collected on Tuesday, December 27.

Starting January 1, City of Elkins will no longer accept phone payments for any city bills or services, including utility bills, building permits, business licenses, special trash pickups, etc. This change has been strongly recommended by the West Virginia State Auditor as a best practice to further reduce the risk of identity theft and fraud.
