During a time when economic decline is a national trend, one West Virginia city is being honored for its growth and development.


Fairmont was one of five cities nationally recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in Washington, D.C., with a 2010 Great American Main Street Award.


Sponsored by Chesapeake Energy, the award is a tribute to the city for its creation of effective networks of leaders who facilitate success through high-profile projects -- specifically, through the development of their Main Street commercial districts.


Fairmont City Manager Jay Rogers said Fairmont is thriving, and the community couldn't be more grateful for the national recognition of its progress and success.


We are pleased to announce that the West Virginia Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) will once again sponsor regional Retirement Planning Seminars in June 2010.

Seminars are open to all PERS members, therefore, registration will not be necessary to attend. Please note that spouses and/or beneficiaries are welcome to accompany members as well. Our PERS Manager, Lisa Trump, will provide an overview of PERS plan provisions, review benefit options and answer your questions about retirement benefits.

Senate Bill No. 4002 requires that the West Virginia Economic Zone Development Authority provide public notice of this bond.

All employer participants in PERS will see an employer contribution increase to 17% beginning July 2010. This action has been taken to help make up for the losses in investments but the increase to 17% is only expected to be in effect for one year.

Originally, the projected increase was going to be 20% but in working with the actuary and crunching the numbers, it has been decided that 17% will be adequate.

Is there going to be an employee contribution increase? The Consolidated Public Retirement Board does not have the authority to increase employee contributions, only employers'. Only the Legislature can increase employee contributions.

Do You Care About the Environment? Do You Want Your Community to be a Fiscally Responsible Leader in the Sustainability Movement? Good. This Book is for You!

From wall wart reduction to hybrid police cars to major projects like energy efficient street relighting, cities and counties all across the country are examining their energy use and carbon emissions and implementing solutions. Many are doing it because it is the right thing to do. Some are doing it as part of community wide citizen led initiatives. Others are simply trying to save money any way that makes sense.

Bottom Line Green is our attempt to honor the leading edge communities and to encour- age the rest. In local government, where the reward for risk is small, few cities or counties want to be first, but almost all want to be first to be second. For those of you who have been first – many thanks! For those of you wait- ing to be first to be second – the time is now! The trail has been blazed. Being Green and adding to the bottom line; saving the planet and saving money too is an achievable reality.

Cities across America are the bastions of Democracy. Cities are also hotbeds of innovation. They have to be. Resources never keep up with de- mand for services. In this environment of incredible mission and unbeliev- able challenge, Amazing Cities across America are making commitments to reduce their carbon footprint and even pledging to become carbon neutral. They are doing it within their existing resource allocations and doing it with a sense of urgency and true purpose.

Mike Conduff and Jim Hunt present a compelling case that it is possible to both Go Green and Save Money!
