Elkins City Hall News

We hope that residents and visitors alike are enjoying the 83rd Mountain State Forest Festival.

We would also like to applaud the dedication and hard work of the Elkins Fire Department, Police Department, Operations Department and mayor, as well as the Randolph County Sheriff’s Department, the West Virginia State Police and the MSFF staff and volunteers during this time.

It takes an incredible amount of resources and coordination to make an event of this size run safely and smoothly.

Next week, when the festivities are over and the carnival has rolled out of town, City business will pick back up right where it left off, starting at 10 a.m. on Monday with a Finance Committee meeting. Members have a substantial agenda to work through, which includes consideration of an increase in the fee charged for police reports; City Hall improvements; and a tower lease with Micrologic.

Later in the week the Rules and Ordinances Committee will begin reviewing potential changes to the City Charter, in particular a movement from the current strong council-weak mayor system of government to a city manager style.

This meeting is scheduled for noon on Thursday.
