Meeting this week are the Elkins Planning Commission and the Elkins Tree Board. Council meets Thursday. B&O tax returns are due Monday.
Meeting virtually Tuesday at 5 p.m., the planning commission will consider applications for appointment to a vacant seat. The commission’s recommendation will be forwarded to council, which has appointment authority.
The tree board meets Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. in the Darden House (next door to city hall) to plan this year’s workshops, volunteer days, and Arbor Day activities.
Council meets Thursday at 7 p.m. The agenda, which may be adjusted through Tuesday, currently includes revision of the city’s outdoor burning law; consideration of a request to abandon an unopened alley behind the new Riverview Apartments (formerly Allegheny Apartments); a change to council’s rules concerning order of meeting business; and a grant application by the Elkins Police Department to fund body-worn and vehicle-mounted cameras. The city clerk will present an update on progress toward goals set by council in its 2018-2023 Strategic Plan, and the chief operator of the water system will give a report.
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 Monday.
