City Hall News: Week of Jan. 24, 2022

Meeting this week are the Elkins Water Board and council’s ad hoc Committee on Boards and Commissions. B&O tax returns are due Monday, January 31.

The water board meets Tuesday at 4 p.m. The agenda includes adoption of the City of Elkins Personnel Manual. The city’s water system workers are employed and supervised by the water board, not city council, so the board must take administrative actions such as these separately from council.

Meeting Wednesday at 9 a.m., the Committee on Boards and Commissions will review the Elkins-Randolph County Regional Airport Authority, the Elkins Parks and Recreation Commission, the Elkins Tree Board, and the Board of Trustees of the Elkins-Randolph County Library. This committee was formed to review boards, commissions, and authorities to which council has appointment authority. One purpose of these reviews is to ensure that these bodies are operating in compliance with local and state laws regarding number of members, election of officers, frequency of meetings, and similar matters.

Fourth quarter business and occupation (B&O) tax returns, as well as annual returns (for those businesses that file annually instead of quarterly), are due January 31.

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:
