The Calhoun Commission will likely give approval Monday for Calhoun's E-911 addressing system to move ahead. Currently, there is a bill in the West Virginia Legislature regarding uniformity with addressing and the creation of an oversight board.

County Clerk Richard Kirby says everyone's address will be changed.

Local 911 Director Barry Pitts says plans are in place to move the county ahead with addressing. Kirby says maps with name changes are available for inspection in his office. A few road names have been changed, mostly to prevent duplication.

The Commission will give approval and complete an agreement for the Back Fork/Yellow Creek water project. The Commission recently received the final piece of funding for the project from Governor Bob Wise, a $515,000 Small Cities Block Grant. The water line extension has been on the board for several years, having faced numerous delays.

The Commission will review grant applications Monday for 2002 and finalize the Court Security Grant. The Commission will vote on a project to remodel the current Magistrate Courtroom for use by the Family Judge.

There will be a resolution to appoint a Calhoun County Coordinator for "West Virginia Watch," part of homeland security for the state.
