Putnam County Commission to address countywide curfew proposal at Tuesday’s meeting

Feb. 09, 2009 @ 11:40 PM

WINFIELD, W.Va. — A proposal for a countywide curfew is among the items on the agenda for Tuesday’s Putnam County Commission meeting.

Sheila Martin of Parents Against Addictions and Cpl. Will Jordan of the Putnam Sheriff’s Department will approach the commission about instituting a countywide curfew law. Although some Putnam cities have curfews, countywide restrictions do not exist.

The commission also will receive an update from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department on drug prevention projects.

Other items for discussion include:

- The acquisition of land from the Department of Highways for use by the new Putnam County Animal Relief Center. The center is expected to occupy property located near Eleanor just off the Winfield bridge.

- A proposal for engineering services along with an application for funding of four Putnam water main extensions. 

- A contract for restoration work on the Hoge House Project, a historic home near the Putnam Judicial Building. Funds for the project, which includes window replacement, would be obtained through a Historic Preservation Grant.

- State budget revisions to the general county fund.

All meetings are open to the public and take place at 9 a.m. in commission chambers on the second floor of the old Putnam County Courthouse in Winfield.
