At the regular Greenbrier County Commission meeting on Tuesday, the highlight of a light agenda was the vote to send eight names to Lewisburg City Council as submissions to serve on the newly formed fire levee appeals board. City ordinance requires a pool of nine candidate submissions to select from to represent the three outlying areas, north (Maxwelton), east (Caldwell) and west (Richlands), of Lewisburg’s first due area. Those named are Troy Honaker, Steven Jamison, Cathryn McKinney, Curt Morgan, Linda Reynolds, Patrick Reynolds, William Shafer, and Frank Tuckwiller. Although only eight applicants have applied, the commission voted to forward their names to the city for review.
The fire levy appeals board will have a total of seven positions, with four seats occupied by the city administrator (or his designee), the Lewisburg fire chief (or his designee), a city council member, and an a Lewisburg attorney.
In other business, County Clerk Robin Loudermilk introduced Anna Withrow as a new payroll employee in her department. A consideration to hire a new fiduciary commissioner was tabled in a motion by Commissioner Lowell Rose. With only a single applicant applying for the position, Rose suggested waiting until the next commission meeting to allow time for other applicant submissions.
The commission approved the signing of an application and resolution for a West Virginia records management and preservation grant that will boost funding for the county assessor’s office, the county clerk’s department, and the circuit clerk’s department. Funds could amount to $10,000 per department, according to commission clerk Kelly Banton.
