“We know how important it is to keep the business of the county commission in front of the public. To insure that the public can continue to ‘attend’ our meetings, even though our office is closed to walk-in traffic, we will be using technology to make that happen,” said Stone.

Agendas for all commission meetings will continue to be posted on the commission’s website, officials said. Citizens can also call the commission office at 304-329-1805.

The commission held an emergency meeting on March 18 to go over the county’s response to the Coronavirus.
