By Staff | Jun 23, 2010

The Tyler County Commission handled a light agenda on Tuesday, June 22 as they discussed the proposal for the Nov. 2, 2010 Ambulance Levy.

The total cost for the levy is in the amount of $925,790.

Vice President John Stender explained that the measure was a renewal levy and not a new one.

The levy would cover operation costs for four ambulance services in the area that include Middlebourne, Alma, Sistersville and part of Paden City’s, for a period of five years. The funds would go toward personnel, salaries, building costs and supplies needed to keep the ambulance services running.

Acting as Counselor for Tyler County Commission, Prosecuting Attorney Luke Furbee also attended the meeting to discuss the delinquent business personal property taxes.

Furbee informed the County Commission that he has sent out a couple of letters to businesses that are no longer in operation and informed them of the delinquent taxes owed.

The commissioners also heard an update from WVU Extension Agent Christy Richmond on the 4-H camp that was held the week of June 8 through 11.

According to Richmond, a total of 95 kids attended the camp this year. She reported that everything went very smoothly.

Stender gave an update on the two projects taking place at the courthouse. Stender stated the tower project is coming along fine and the floor project in the Assessor’s office is 75 percent complete.

Tyler County Assessor Jackson Hayes asked the commissioners for $1,967 in funds to replace an existing wall that had moisture damage in the Personal Property Tax Office. Miller Drywall will do the work. The request was granted.

The next meeting will be held on July 13 at 9 a.m.
