Greetings from the Mayor's Office!
It looks like warm weather is here to stay and with warm weather approaching, residents will be spending more and more time outdoors. Please be mindful of trees and shrubs that may potentially block the line of sight for motorists. Additionally, please make efforts to keep lawns trimmed and clear of debris and unsightly trash. If you have done spring cleaning, the city offers an extra haul service beyond the regular refuse service if needed. You can contact us here at city hall at your convenience to schedule a pick up.
I want to take the time to say thank you to the residents of Coffman St. for their patience during recent construction of storm infrastructure. The improvements have taken longer than we would like and I know it has been difficult during the construction process. For that, I am sorry. Rest assured we are anticipating completion in the very near future and paving should be right around the corner.
If you haven’t had the chance, I encourage you to check out: www.discoverbarboursville.com and Barboursville.org for a full listing of activities in Barboursville all summer long. One of the events for the summer season is “Vineyard in the Village”, Barboursville’s inaugural food, music and wine festival. The event will be held on Saturday May 13th from 4pm – 8pm on Main Street in Cartmill Gardens. The Bob Thompson Unit, Sasha Colette and Danny Miller will provide the entertainment and there will be great food from a variety of local restaurants.
Tickets to the event can be purchased at www.eventbright.com and include wine sampling from around the world. (Including the 7 Kingdoms for all you Game of Thrones fans) Tickets are limited, so get them while you can!
As a reminder, we will have our Memorial Day program at Cartmill Gardens beginning at 10:00am. We will honor those that have served our country with the singing of our National Anthem and a special guest speaker. In the event of rain the program will be moved indoors to the Barboursville Community Center. Please make plans to join us to honor those that fought for our freedom.
As always, we invite you to attend a council meeting, send us an email, a message via Facebook or a good old fashioned letter in the mail to let us know how we are doing! We meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month at 7:30pm in the community center and you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or find the village and me on Facebook! We look forward to hearing from you!
Chris Tatum, Mayor
