City Hall News: Week of May 17, 2021
Elkins, W. Va., May 15, 2021: The bid opening for the city hall parking lot project is on Monday. The Elkins Sanitary Board meets Monday, the Municipal Properties Committee meets Wednesday, and council meets Thursday.
Bids for the city hall parking lot project will be opened at a public meeting at 1 p.m. Monday, at city hall. An earlier scheduled bid opening was postponed to provide time for contractors to adjust their bids in light of a project addendum. The goal of this project is to provide both city employees and the public with a modern, paved, well-lit, aesthetically pleasing parking lot.
Later Monday, at 3:15 p.m., the Elkins Sanitary Board, which manages the city’s sewer system, meets to review invoices and financial statements.
On Wednesday at 9 a.m., the Municipal Properties Committee meets to discuss downtown residential parking, consider a request for the abandonment of an alley by the city, and hear a proposal for expanded parking for the Tygart Hotel, which is being renovated as a boutique hotel by Woodlands Development Group.
Council meets Thursday at 7 p.m. Current agenda items include the amendment of city code to eliminate the city’s enforcement agency, a committee that has not met in years and which has been supplanted by council’s Public Safety Committee and various full-time public safety officials. Also on the agenda are bid acceptance for the city hall parking lot project and appointments to the Elkins-Randolph County Regional Airport Authority and the Elkins Police Civil Service Commission.
