    Clarksburg City Council approved a second reading of the ordinance to acquire the Rose Garden Theater, Thursday night.
    Clarksburg City Council met Thursday night to discuss ‘The Robinson Grand Theater', also known as the ‘Rose Garden Theater', that the city plans to acquire. 

White Hall officials, business owners, and residents came together Wednesday night to discuss an ordinance that would increase city fees.

The fee would pay for fire and police protection and a new public safety building.

The original ordinance said residents would pay an annual $35 flat rate with businesses paying 35 cents per square foot instead of the 3.5 cents they pay now.

"They thought that was a big increase, which it was. It was a big increase to them. But it got them to come to the table to discuss the situations and the needs out here," said White Hall Mayor Jesse Corley.

The town is working with businesses to find a solution.

Corley hopes a decision will be made by the next meeting on March 27.
