Elkins City Hall News

The city has been working closely with the Division of Highways in recent weeks in an effort to get projects underway. This coming week, DOH employees will be cleaning North Randolph Avenue, Randolph Avenue and Harrison Avenue to assist the city. We appreciate their hard work and the partnership between the two entities.

Next week, the Fireman’s Civil Service Commission will be meeting at 10 a.m. Tuesday at City Hall Council Chambers, located on second floor. Also there will be a meeting next week for the Communications Committee, who will be discussing emergency communication plans and ideas for the city. This will help provide points of contact in case of a major disaster such as Super Storm Sandy in 2012.

The Planning Commission met this past Wednesday and discussed the possibility of new landscaping ideas as well as possibilities about the sale of medical marijuana. There are many obstacles the committee will be required to discuss before anything will be set in stone.

Also this past week there was discussion at the special council meeting about address changing for Washington Avenue. Some residents attended the meeting and gave their piece, others were OK with it. The council voted 8-1, with First Ward Councilwoman Judy Guye as the lone dissenting vote, to change the addresses to better serve the community and first responders.

The next council meeting is slated for 7 p.m. on May 2.
