The Logan County Commission had a short meeting Monday afternoon, but the benefits to the county will be far reaching.
Many new job appointments were approved by the commission:
• Albert “Mike” Smith and Brenden Brown were both approved as part time employees for 911
• Sherri Johnson was approved as a full time deputy, as submitted by the County Assessor
The commission approved an outlay request from Chapman Technical Group concerning the Logan County Airport Authority and a lease with the State of West Virginia concerning the Task Force.
The commission awarded a $1,000 Governor’s Community Participation Grant to the Adult 4-H association to help buy ATV helmets for children who attend the county 4-H programs. West Virginia Uuniversity Extension Agent Jeremy Farley says, in light of all recent ATV tragedies, he wishes he could give a helmet to every child in the county, but unfortunately he does not have the finances available to do so.
County Clerk John Turner rescinded his order to change voting precinct 21 at Amherstdale to precinct 20 at Accoville.
The commission approved a renewed contract with Xerox Corporation for the clerk’s office, i.e. voter’s registration, and for the County Commission: $105.21 and $236.56 monthly, respectively.
Department reports for the dog pound were in order; there were no home confinement reports for this week’s meeting.
Attorney Brian Abraham read the exotic entertainment ordinance. This makes the second reading of the ordinance. The third will be during the next regular commission meeting.
Abraham also tabled the Logan County Dog Ordinance to be amended and read during the next meeting.
Routine matters were disposed of quickly, and a few items were tabled until next meeting to receive council. Commissioner Willie Akers will be in attendance during the next meeting as well.
The next regular scheduled meeting will be held August 11 at 3 p.m.
