July 17, 2020

BUCKHANNON, WV: This summer, the City of Buckhannon will benefit from our relationship with West Virginia Wesleyan College, as Josh Trent, a Buckhannon native and fifth-year student in the Master of Business Administration program performs two research projects related to City facilities and operations.

First, Trent will be analyzing Riverwalk usage and conducting a survey to determine who is using the Riverwalk, how often, when, and what they would like to see improved on the trail system.

Please take the survey here:

Following the Riverwalk research, Trent will be looking at how our municipality transitioned to distance operations for City business and City Council & Utility meetings during the CoViD-19 pandemic.

The resulting report will make recommendations for what actions might improve our operations under social distancing guidelines, which in turn may inform purchases of technology and equipment that could be reimbursed with CARES Act funding.

Thank you, Josh Trent, Prof. Kim Conrad, and West Virginia Wesleyan College for partnering with the City of Buckhannon to mutually benefit students and community members!
