Despite the harsh weather on Monday, Jan. 8, White Sulphur Springs had their regularly scheduled City Council meeting at City Hall at 7 p.m.

Five ordinances for the city had their second readings during the meeting, and two ordinances had their first readings, including ordinance 766, which increases the municipal service fee for the city of White Sulphur from $10.50 to $15.50. The extra funds gathered from this fee will be used to help rebuild the city pool and support the many parks located in the city. Locals who pay the new service fee will be able to receive a family pass for the new pool facilities.

Ordinance 545.99, which prohibits the firing of weapons within city limits except when in use by law enforcement or when being used in self defense, had its second reading. The ordinance specifies that firearm use at the city shooting range, which is within city limits, is legal.

Details were discussed for the upcoming Hart’s Run Water Extension Project, which will connect Lewisburg’s water system to White Sulphur Spring’s water system at Hart’s Run. The extension will provide water to the approximately 42 residents located between Greenbrier State Forest and Hart’s Run, and will also run to the new barrel company facility. The water line will end at the picnic area in the state forest.

In other news, $1,000 was approved for use by the WSS Pee Wee Basketball team, and a bid to demolish the pool at Municipal Park was passed.
