BWardensville Town Hall is closed to the public. There is a drop-box outside for water and sewer payments and other communication. Town Clerks Jody Copeland and Theresa Ramsey are alternating work days.
“Public works is doing what needs to be done and going home,” Mayor Betsy Orndoff-Sayers told the Wardensville Council. “Things seem to be working well, so far.”
Because of state recommendations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the council met via tele-conference on Monday, April 12
Orndoff-Sayers reported on several grants received.
“We got $1,500 from the Hardy County Commission for the library,” she said. “We were told by the Hardy County Community Foundation that our grant application for $1,000 for library computers was approved.
“The IJDC (Infrastructure and Jobs Development Council) approved our grant for $46,738.50 for an exploratory well. It’s a 50/50 grant.”
At last month’s meeting, Orndoff-Sayers told council the engineering firm working on the design of a new water treatment facility said the town’s current water sources do not produce enough water to support a filtration treatment system.
RK&K, civil engineers located in Keyser, recommended a deep exploratory well to locate another water source.
Council approved changing the scope of RK&K’s work to include the well at last month’s meeting.
•The next regular meeting of the Wardensville Council is scheduled for Monday, May 11, beginning at 6:30 p.m. For additional information, call town hall at 304-874-3950. All meetings are open to the public.
