City Hall News: Week of September 20, 2021

Elkins, W. Va., September 18, 2021: Meeting this week are council’s Personnel Committee, Finance Committee, and ad hoc Boards & Commissions Committee and Special Hiring Committee. Also meeting are the Elkins Sanitary Board and the Elkins Historic Landmarks Commission. Elkins Friends of Trees will host volunteers at a garden cleanup at city hall Saturday.

At its Monday, 3:15 p.m. meeting, the Elkins Sanitary Board—which oversees the city’s sewer system—will consider invoices and other financial information; a change order for the sewer/stormwater separation project; and flow meters.

The Personnel Committee meets Tuesday at 2 p.m. on an agenda that includes review of the city’s contract with AlignHR as well as various sections of the city’s personnel manual. The committee will also consider proposed changes to the personnel structure of Elkins Municipal Court and hear an update from the city’s administrative officers concerning action plans to address findings from a recent employee survey.

Tuesday, at 4 p.m. in the Darden House (next door to city hall), the Historic Landmarks Commission will hear an update from Elkins Main Street.

The Boards & Commissions Committee meets Wednesday at 9 a.m. This committee was created to compare state and city laws concerning boards and commissions to identify and correct any discrepancies concerning membership requirements, appointment methods, term lengths, and other rules. This week, the committee will examine the Elkins Historic Landmarks Commission, the Elkins Planning Commission, and the Housing Authority of the City of Elkins. The committee will also review vacancies and plan training for city board and commission members.

The Finance Committee also meets Wednesday, at 10:30 a.m. The agenda includes a funding request from the Phil Gainer Community Center for funds toward installation of the new synthetic gym floor, a review of vehicle and equipment inventories, receipt of an estimate for removal of the iron signs at city entrances, consideration of utility bill mailings, and analysis of fixed asset costs.

On Wednesday at 3 p.m., the Special Hiring Committee continues to consider possible changes to the organizational structure of the Operations Department and the job description of the operations manager. The operations assistant is currently the acting operations manager after the resignation of the former incumbent earlier this month.

On Saturday, starting at 9 a.m., Elkins Friends of Trees will host a public garden maintenance and cleanup day at the Darden House and city hall.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their own gloves and gardening tools if possible, but some will be available for loan during the event.

To avoid penalty, payments for utility bills and in-city fire-and-rescue fees must be received in the Treasurer’s Department no later than Monday.
