HHS Field Will Get Lights

By Staff | Sep 21, 2010

The Hundred Town Council meeting Monday began with the exciting news that after many months of planning, the project to replace the football field lights will begin Oct. 11. The council anticipates the project’s completion in a matter of weeks.

In other matters, the issue of loose trash became a topic of conversation among the council. After complaints that loose trash in cans was a problem for the trash collectors, the council moved to have letters be sent out to Hundred residents stating all trash must be bagged. Loose trash not bagged in garbage cans will not be collected from now on.

The council also discussed new state legislation regarding all-terrain vehicles and utility terrain vehicles. Passed on March 13 under Chapter 17F, Article 1-9, an “all-terrain vehicle” or “ATV”is defined as: “Any motor vehicle, 52 inches or less in width, having an unladen weight of 800 pounds or less, traveling on three or more low pressure tires with a seat designed to be straddled by the rider, designed for or capable of travel over unimproved terrain.” Under this clarification, the council explained utility terrain vehicles fall under the category of “ATV” and owners of such vehicles must abide by West Virginia Code. Relatedly, the council will order the signs regarding the ATV ordinance of no driving on city streets very soon along with the “No Parking Except on Sundays” signs for the side of the Frontier building. These signs were discussed and voted on in the Aug. 2 town council meeting.

Under new business the council learned the state will provide the Town of Hundred with 20 tons of salt for the winter season. Lastly, it was decided Hundred’s Halloween trick-or-treating will be held Oct. 30 from 6-7:30 p.m.
