During the Hundred Town Council meeting held Monday night it was announced the long-awaited new field lights at the high school are installed and in operation. The council was very pleased with the results and will work to secure the presently unsettled trenches around the field. On a similar note Council stated the roadways would be patched very soon.

In another matter the council received rough estimates for the repair of the Belmont Street wall. To include the option of adding asphalt along the wall, the total would be $95,872, however without the added asphalt the wall could be completed for $89,712. The council is looking into funding opportunities for the project and hope to afford the $95,872 estimate.

Back in May the council filled out a FEMA application in hopes of receiving funds to cover the repairs to the Belmont Street wall among other structures following last December’s snow storms.

However in June it was learned FEMA would not fund the wall’s repair because they felt the wall came down due to years of no maintenance, rather than from snow-related damages.

Meanwhile, the Town of Hundred will be scheduled in the near future for an audit by the West Virginia State Auditor’s Office.

In January the council sent out audit bid proposals to individual accounting offices for the years 2009 through 2011, however plans to procure an auditor have fallen through, leaving Council to contact the state auditor’s office to conduct the audit.

Lastly, Recorder Sherry Hayes wished to remind council members and interested persons that April 2 is the deadline to file for candidacy in the June 14 election. All offices are open and the filing fee is $5. For more information call 304-775-5131.
