City Hall News: Week of September 27, 2021
Elkins, W. Va., September 25, 2021: Meeting next week are two ad hoc council committees, the Collaboration and Marketing Committee and the ARPA Advisory Committee. Also meeting are the Elkins Planning Commission and the Elkins Water Board.
During its Monday, 1 p.m. virtual meeting, the Planning Commission will continue its work updating the city’s zoning laws, which have not been significantly amended since adoption in the 1950s. As the commission nears completion of its draft ordinance, it will consider input recently received from city council and other stakeholders. The commission will also plan opportunities for the public to review the draft ordinance once it is complete.
The Collaboration and Marketing Committee meets Tuesday at 9 a.m. The committee, which was recently created by Mayor Jerry Marco, will discuss its mission and goals as potential uses for the city’s marketing budget.
Also on Tuesday, at 4 p.m., the Water Board will review requests for approval of ARPA funds expenditures, the disposition of the water meters replaced this year, and options for recovering the cost of water-line repairs this year.
On Wednesday at 9 a.m., the ARPA Advisory Committee will discuss proposed uses for the $3 million in ARPA funds awarded to the city. The committee will also begin designing frameworks for prioritizing and executing proposed uses for the funds.
