Paw Paw Council says no to paying water & sewer bills with credit cards
A project engineer from Thrasher Engineering attended the Paw Paw Town Council’s October 1 meeting to discuss construction on our sewer replacement project.
After consulting with the auditor and State Tax Office, the council decided not to accept credit cards for payment of water and sewer bills due to the added expense of transaction fees and credit card fees. It is not a common practice in municipalities in West Virginia.
Council has written to legislators to petition their help with the local cell phone tower. Since the power outage, this summer Paw Paw residents are even more aware of their isolation without communication, it was said.
Council voted to replace the garage doors on old town hall, the maintenance garage, and to store police cars at the old fire hall.
Council discussed problems with overlarge tractor trailer trucks being directed up Winchester Street and the Bethel Road by their GPS equipment. Wires are being pulled down and truckers are getting stuck. They plan to contact the State Highway Department and have signs posted saying! “No Through Trucks, Local Truck Traffic Only.”
Trick or treat
Trick or treat will be held on Wednesday, October 31 between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Winchester Street will be closed to traffic from Moser Avenue to Cinder Lane and the bridge.
Council was told that the recent Day in the Park was a success.
The next council meeting will be Monday, November 5 at 7 p.m.
