Home Rule

Getting it right should be goal

April 2, 2014
04 , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

At 5 p.m. today, members of Parkersburg City Council's finance committee will meet with Mayor Bob Newell to discuss the city's application to be part of West Virginia's expanded home rule program. The discussion will involve two main points - cuts to the business and occupation tax and a combination of the Municipal Building Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals. That combination would allow anyone seeking to appeal zoning variance decisions to go before City Council, rather than heading to the Wood County Circuit Court.
