A second reading was given on a Small Cities Block grant at the Calhoun Commission meeting last night, seeking a $250,000 grant to help bring a small manufacturing company to Calhoun County.

The grant application is being made to try and bring jobs to Calhoun County. A barrel manufacturing company has shown interest in locating in the county.

The Small Cities Block Grant program is designed to provide assistance to counties in West Virginia to address critical community development, housing and economic development needs.

The Commission passed a formal resolution naming the Grantsville Bridge "The Bernard P. Bell, Congressional Medal of Honor Winner, Memorial Bridge." Bell, the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. R. P. Bell, was a native of Calhoun in World War II. The bill naming the bridge was introduced in the West Virginia Legislature by Delegates Stemple and Givens.

A motion was passed to place the Budget Digest funds in the capital account. (SEE earlier Hur Herald story)

Richard Kirby, County Clerk, gave a report on the summer youth program. Kirby said the supervisors reported the kids this summer "are a great bunch of workers."

Approval was given to Circuit Clerk Shelia Garretson to hire Rhonda Wilson full-time and Victoria Lamont part-time.

Sharon Postalwait was appointed to a five-year term on the Mt. Zion Public Service District Board.

The Commission also paid bills, took care of erroneous tax assessments, reviewed the budget control report, and processed bonds, wills, settlements and orders.
