Voters turn down Monroe County School bond
Over the weekend, Monroe County voters turned down a bond to build a combined new elementary and middle school in Peterstown. By an unofficial vote of 1,189 against and 609 for, the vote sinks a plan to construct a new school near Ballard, replacing Peterstown elementary and middle schools. School officials and community leaders have been working for more than two years on getting the bond referendum to voters and obtaining money from the state in the process. Of the $10 million, about $6 million would have been used for the new school, along with $16 million from the State Building Authority (SBA) and $2 million the county has already set aside. Other projects included improvements to James Monroe High School and new lighting on the outside of the Monroe County Technical Center. The Monroe County Board of Education is holding a meeting Tuesday to discuss the next step, so the $16 million doesn't go to another county in West Virginia.
Appalachian Regional Commission awards $4.4 M to five WV projects
The Appalachian Regional Commission announced this week the awarding of $4.4 million to support five West Virginia projects designed to diversify and grow the economy in areas affected by the decline of coal-mining jobs. The award for West Virginia projects was among $15.7 million in POWER (Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization) Initiative grants approved for 18 projects in seven Appalachian coal-producing states. During the past year, the ARC has distributed more than $92 million to diversify economies in 11 Appalachian states through the initiative.
