charlestown@herald-mail.com CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The Jefferson County Commission agreed Thursday to hold a public hearing Jan. 6 on a second impact fee that is being considered for the county. The hearing will be held during the commissioners' regular meeting in the Jefferson County Courthouse, although no time has been set. Impact fees are fees collected from home builders to help pay for increased public services demanded by population growth. The commissioners passed a school impact fee, which requires home builders to pay the county $7,122 for each home they build, $5,562 for every town house or duplex constructed and $4,040 for every multi-family dwelling built.

But someone in local government has to work on a long-term solution for this necessary facility. Why? Because in addition to serving a local need, the Holly Place facility actually saves the government money.
