BUCKHANNON - At the January 19th Buckhannon City Council meeting, a letter of request from the Upshur County Board of Education for assistance in the demolition at 11 E Victoria Street was approved unanimously by Council, allowing for the authorization and execution of a letter agreement. Jeffrey Perkins, Treasurer with the Upshur County Board of Education was in attendance.

Mayor Robbie Skinner began by addressing Council:

"As you'll recall, we have approved the demolition of 9 E Victoria Street. It would be my recommendation that we go ahead and assist with 11 E Victoria Street, which is right next door - also a property that they (Upshur County Board of Education) have acquired - and that would just clean up that corner there... where you turn to go into the bus loop of the Academy school," Skinner said.

Watch the full segment, including questions and comments from councilmembers and the unanimous vote to enter the letter agreement:
