Hedgesville planning meetings moved

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. - The Town of Hedgesville's planning commission will now hold their regular meetings on the third Wednesday of each month, Town Recorder Terri Miskovsky announced.

"The Town Council and Planning Commission hope this will better serve the residents and land owners of the municipality with regard to zoning and building permits," Miskovsky said. The sessions will begin at 7:30 a.m., in Naylor Hall.

The meeting had been held the day after Town Council sessions, a circumstance Miskovsky said was becoming a hardship for the council and mayoral representative on the commission to attend.
