The Morgantown Fire Civil Service Commission will be administering examinations to establish the list from which vacancies on the Morgantown Fire Department will be filled.

The next time you come across a burned-out house in danger of collapse, take a moment to think about Kanawha County.

The Kanawha County Commission recently approved a $1 million demolition program to remove up to 114 uninhabitable structures, thanks in large part to the West Virginia Housing Development Fund’s Property Rescue Initiative.

Kanawha County currently allocates 100 percent of its building permit fees to demolish dilapidated structures. In order to ramp up its efforts and make this pool of funding go further, the county leveraged its demolition fund to apply for an interest-free loan through the Property Rescue Initiative.

As you are aware, businesses doing business in your municipality will begin collecting your municipal sales and use taxes in addition to the State sales and use taxes on July 1, 2017.

For businesses that only make sales from a storefront in your municipality, there will be a new, additional reporting requirement, but not much else changes for them.

For businesses that deliver products to the location of the customer, or that provided services at the customer’s location there are new compliance and reporting rules. These businesses will need to become familiar with the sourcing rules, in W. Va. Code §§ 11-15B-14, 11-15B14a and 11-15B-15, that apply to both the State sales and use taxes and to municipal sales and use taxes.
