Name the New Street Contest


          Okay folks- we have a new street that’s been created as a consequence of our alley trade with St. Joseph’s Hospital. This new stretch is located right beside & just to the west of CVS on West Main Street.  All nominations for the new street’s name should be sent to City Hall, attention Callie Cronin-Sams, Information Coordinator, 70 East Main Street, Buckhannon, WV 26201.  Please be sure to include your name, as the ultimate winner will be recognized by City Council at City Hall.

          Lewd, vulgar, or inappropriate nominations will not be considered.  Nominations must be submitted by mailing postmarked by June 30 or received by Callie’s email at

          After June 30, a committee of Callie Cronin-Sams; Public Works Director Jerry Arnold; Finance & Adminstration Director Amby Jenkins; the mayor; & city recorder will be tasked with reviewing all nominations & preparing a list of three to five of the best names for consideration by both our residents & the Council.  We’ll hope to complete this process during July, & thereafter will put up the new street signs & recognize the winning submittal.  Our winner will receive an authentic street sign of their own along with a proclamation!  Have fun- name our new street! 

Mayor David McCauley
