Renick Town Council discusses agenda items


On Sept. 9, the Renick Town Council started with Mayor Patrick Roberts noting that the man cited for burning a brush pile and old home structure has voluntarily committed to performing a total of 40 hours of community service.

Renick’s former recorder has not turned over treasury report documents for a second month in a row and legally has 90 days from leaving office to turn over the records. The issue has been tabled until then.

The bid of $16,450 from Greenbrier Excavating and Paving to work on First Street was accepted and approved.

The previously discussed issue of a drainage problem near a Sixth Street home has now been rectified. The council discussed adding stone to shore up the culvert to prevent future erosion.

Attorney Michael Witt was approved as the new city attorney.

Greenbrier Technologies has been contacted about installing a new computer system for the town hall and they will be putting together a presentation for the next meeting.

Other agenda items included confirming that all members of the council are now bonded and the bonds are recorded at the county clerk’s office.

The new town maintenance contract was approved for David G. Gumm, who will handle the town handyman projects as needed.

There was also approval for Councilwoman Angle Lewis to attend a free training workshop on Audits and Business and Small Town Financial Administration being held in Beckley.

The next Town Council meeting will be on Monday, Oct. 7.
