Town Looks To Raise Fee
At their Jan. 20 meeting Hundred Town Council approved the second reading of an ordinance that would raise police fees in the town.
The measure that would increase the fee per residence from $3 to $5 per month requires a third reading before it can be enacted.
Council discussed when the fee was last raised and decided it had to have been before 2008.
“If you’re going to have it (a police force), you’ve got to support it,” noted Mayor Charles Sine.
Also, council voted unanimously to approve Michael VanVoltenburg as their newest councilmember. He will fill the seat vacated by David Derby three months ago.
The town ran a legal ad in the Wetzel Chronicle seeking those who would like to serve on council. VanVoltenburg was the only one who expressed interest.
The next regular Hundred Town Council meeting is scheduled for Feb. 2 at 7 p.m.
