Library Levy Topic of Meeting

DianaSlaughter6Diane Slaughter, chairman of the Sissonville Library Advisory Board, told the Sissonville Lions Club on September 23, 2014 that the upcoming Library Levy issue is sponsored by the Kanawha County School Board only because there are but two practical entities that can sponsor levies in Kanawha County: the school board and the county commission. She noted that all of the proceeds of the levy, if passed, will go to the library to make up for the short-fall caused by last year’s WV Supreme Court decision which stripped away the library’s portion of the county school board’s levy funds. That portion represented forty percent of the library system’s total funding and has caused such adverse actions as the reduction in staff and hours at the Sissonville Branch Library. The levy is on the ballot during the general election on November 4th.

D. Mark Kiser, chairman of the Sissonville Public Service District, told the July 22, 2014 meeting of the Sissonville Lions Club that the district has started the process of engaging a professional engineer-consultant to evaluate the district’s facilities. Built originally in 1987, the facilities are in their third decade of service. “We need to obtain an evaluation to see what needs to be upgraded before a failure occurs. While I’m sure the results will be more than we can afford, it will help us prioritize our improvement needs.”

Some 1,700 customers are served by the district, mostly residential although it also treats discharges from two landfills in the area as well as businesses and schools. The current rate is $10.25 per thousand gallons of water consumed by the customer. The average residential customer uses some 3,300 gallons per month. Continue reading
