Darin Haddix, a representative of Designer Concrete and Curbing in Philippi, addressed Jane Lew Town Council regarding the floor in the Jane Lew Community Building.
Haddix presented samples of various floorings for Mayor Ruth Straley and council members, and the costs associated with them. Haddix said two types of flooring would best suit their needs, chip flooring or a metallic flooring.
Haddix said both types are easy to clean and can hold up to pooling water, including floods. The refinishing should take approximately seven days, with building rentals to resume two days after the project is completed.
The size of the building is 2,175 square feet, and 340 linear feet of rubber base. No decision was made at Tuesday evenings council meeting.
The council discussed the age on the heating and cooling units at the community building, and the possibility of replacement. Council member Phyllis Hinterer suggested looking at maintenance on the building as things that could be done this year. Straley agreed, saying the building does need refurbished.
Jane Lew Volunteer Fire Department Chief Mitch Oldaker reported they answered 279 calls for 2017.
Twenty nine were structure fires, 113 were vehicle accidents, 127 were false alarms, six were hazardous condition calls, and four were non-emergency calls. last July was the month for the highest volume of calls, according to Oldaker. He also announced that Kevin Queen was elected President of the JLVFD, who will succeed James Oldaker.
Dates for this year’s Spring Fireman’s Arts and Crafts Festival were established for April 7-8.
Council member Bed Paugh designed a flyer highlighting the Jane Lew community and what amenities are available. He said this information will come in useful as construction begins on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
A logo contest was also discussed, with the winning logo printed on the flyers. Paugh will contact the Lewis County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau regarding how to proceed further in publishing the flyers.
Jane Lew Town Council will meet again on Feb. 5, at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.,
