Calhoun County Commission met Monday at 9 a.m. in the courthouse little courtroom.

A half-hour into the meeting, commissioners held a nine-minute executive session, and announced that Roscoe Gainer was appointed to the Mt. Zion Public Service District board.

Earlier in the meeting commissioner Kevin Helmick read the following motion:

“Following consumer complaints, apparent management issues and a failure to comply with W.Va. Code in supplying records, audits, and reports to the Calhoun County Commission in behalf of the public, Mt. Zion PSD issues critically need resolved.

“The Calhoun County Commission therefore requests the West Virginia Public Service Commission to formally investigate the Mt. Zion Public Service District, covering financial and management issues, from how money was handled, review audits, record keeping, minutes/decisions made, the hiring of engineers and bidding processes.” The motion was approved.

Community Resources, Inc., board member Chip Westfall said that CRI has completed 83 jobs of weatherization since April.

Wood Festival representative Judy Powell asked commissioners to approve the construction of an outside grill at Wayne Underwood Field. It will be built by students at Calhoun-Gilmer Career Center. Cost is estimated at $207.32. Commissioners approved the request.

Danielle Stevens, executive secretary, reported that a meeting will be held with local fire chiefs to discuss the tower fund dispersion.

Additional items approved by the commission:

--Erroneous tax assessments;

--Sheriff’s settlement for January to June;

--Resolution of support to pursue funding for the paving of 911 center and school board office road;

--Development of a plan by Cindy Morgan to dispose of old hospital medical records;

--Appointment of William Ellis to regional EMS board;

--Acceptance of Della Nichols’ resignation from Mt. Zion PSD board.

--Several resolutions for pursuing grant monies, including: safe school grant; courthouse facility improvement grant; polling place grant for Calhoun County Park, courthouse, and possibly Upper West Fork Park; path improvement grant for Calhoun County Park; records management grant; and sheriff vehicle grant.

The court security grant will allow for work to begin soon by Rick Alderman.

The deputy sheriff grant was to be received by Shari Johnson, Charles McCroskey and Allen Parsons on Tuesday in Charleston. A special meeting will be called by commissioners for further discussion regarding the acceptance of the grant. Commissioners said that they must see the contract and have questions answered.

After approving invoices, bonds, wills, settlements and orders, the meeting was adjourned at 11:25 a.m.. The next regular meeting will be on Monday, Oct. 19, 1 p.m., in the little courtroom.
