BY CHAD TURNER - Staff Writer ( , Wetzel Chronicle

The Wetzel County Commission opened bids Jan. 30 for the renovations to be made at the county's senior center in Hundred. The center was destroyed by the floods that occurred in July 28-29 of 2017.

Quality Aluminum won the right to the renovation project with a bid proposal of $147,923. The price includes labor, demolition, disposal, water heater, vent fans, plumbing, drywall, doors, building materials and whatever else will be needed to finish the project. Quality Aluminum also provided contractors licenses, as well as proof of liability insurance and a business registration certificate.

The commission also opened bids for a new law enforcement record management. The winning bid was placed by a company called In-Synch Systems in the amount of $37,240. The services provided includes evidence scanner, software, RMS help desk, RAC server, basic training, IMS support, and other assorted services. Wetzel County Sheriff Mike Koontz reviewed the bid and was satisfied with the service provider, so a motion was made to accept the bid.

The commission passed a motion allowing use of the 4-H grounds for the Back Home Appalachian Arts and Music Festival being held on June 29, 30 and July 1. The festival committee is to work with Wetzel County's Bob Sellers, to work out all of the details and arrangements. The agreement includes parking and camping but does not include use of the cabins.

A motion passed appointing Barb McAdams and Herb Jones as ballot commissioners for a two-year term. They will assist with proofing the ballots, such as checking ballot language and witnessing the draw.

The IRS standard mileage rate for 2018 has been established. It is in the amount of 54.5 cents per mile for county employees. This rate was accepted and approved by the commission.

Per the West Virginia Ethics and Open Meeting Act, agenda items for Wetzel County Commission meetings will be posted within two days prior to meetings. Requests for items requiring action should be submitted within that time frame. Meetings are usually held every Tuesday, 9:30 a.m.
