Office of the Mayor

Notes from Mayor Tatum


Greetings from the Mayor's office! As I write this today, there are 4 teams from Barboursville Little League that have won a state championship in their respective division and are representing our Village and the state of West Virginia in regional play all over the southeast. What a testament to the coaches, parents and volunteers of our league! Congratulations to each of these teams! West Virginia American Water continues their work on Blake St. for a replacement of a water line. This work should be complete before school starts to avoid any traffic issues for drop off and pick up of students. Many thanks to the residents in that area for their patience during this time. Many thanks to the Huntington Symphony Orchestra for bringing their show on the road to the Village of Barboursville. It was a fantas- tic evening at our park and it was a perfect opportunity to showcase our park and amphitheater. The concert with the 5th Dimension was one of the largest attended in the history of the outdoor Pops season!


Also many thanks to our employees and police department for their assistance for this event. Here's to hoping for their return visit next summer!

It will soon be time for school to start and as a reminder, please be mindful of school zones and drop off and pick up points around the village.


Even though school will be starting, there are still many activities to enjoy around our village and in the park. I invite you to visit: or and our social media pages for all of the details. As always, we invite you to give us your feedback. Send us an email, attend a council meeting, or come visit us at city hall. We want to hear from you and make our town a better place to live and work!


Progress continues!

Chris Tatum, Mayor
