The city of Logan has been chosen to host the fall meeting of the board of directors West Virginia Municipal League.
During a recent interview with the Logan Banner, Logan Mayor Serafino Nolletti explained the group holds four meetings a year, and this is the first time in the history of the Municipal League that a board meeting has been held in Logan. “We are really tickled to death that the League has selected Logan,” said Nolletti.
Nolletti currently holds a spot on the Municipal League’s board of directors, and he was recently joined on the board by fellow Logan Countian Mayor Jim Blevins of Man.
The West Virginia Municipal League’s website describes the organization saying, “The West Virginia Municipal League is a statewide, nonprofit, nonpartisan association of cities, towns and villages established in 1968 to assist local governments and advance the interests of the citizens who reside within. The membership includes all 232 municipalities’ population in the state.”
On Oct. 23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the board of directors of the West Virginia Municipal League will hold a meeting at the Chief Logan State Park Convention Center; however, as members of the Municipal League filter into Logan County on Oct. 22, they will be treated with a tour of the Hatfield and McCoy Trail system and visits to local businesses. A cookout will also be held at the Logan County Airport.
“We are happy to have mayors, city councilors and everybody coming to Logan. We are going to showcase what we have here at home. It’s a big deal for us, and this means a lot to me personally. As the mayor of Logan and as someone who has lived in Logan all of my life, to have all these elected officials here from across the state means a lot.”
