Durbin Town Council addresses short agenda

Durbin Town Council had only two items on its agenda for the January 14 meeting – the sewer project and the windows in Durbin Town Hall.

Councilman Mark Smith announced that last Thursday council members looked over the blueprints of the new sewer project. Several corrections were noted on the plans, which will be hand delivered to Hannah Engineering in Elkins. Smith said that eight or nine rights-of-way still need to be signed. A conference call with Hannah Engineering was scheduled for January 22.

Councilman Eugene Warner and Smith talked about current issues at the lagoon.

A concrete slab was poured for a new building, but the two councilmembers felt it was prone to flooding. There was discussion about how that problem could be remedied.

The Durbin Town Hall window project has been completed by the Appalachian Forest Heritage Area, which is based in Elkins.

The town council felt the bill was higher than expected. Mayor Mike Vance tried to call Supervisor Logan Smith, but there was no answer.

In other business, it was noted that Al’s Upper Inn Club has been sold and is under new management.

Durbin Town Council meets the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
