Sonya Wood presented to the commission the financial report.† The account balance for Huse is typical for this time of year, the expenses are more than the revenues.† Dale Clonch made a motion to accept the report as presented, seconded by Kay Phillips.† The financial report was approved.††
Sonya Wood updated the commission on the Angel Park.† There have been 29 bricks sold.† These will all go on the front wall.† Sonya is going to measure the front wall to see if there is a way to re-configure to add more bricks.† Hopefully over the winter more bricks will be sold.† They plan to put grey stack stone on the walls around the bricks. The project will start back up mid-March once the weather breaks.† There has already been some landscaping planted so it will bloom in the spring.†
Huse has received $220 in donations in memory of JC Blume.† Kay Phillips made a motion to spend $120 on landscaping at the Angel Park and $100 on a brick in the Angel Park with the donation money, seconded by Dale Clonch.† The motion carried.
The commission discussed the placement of member on the CD account at FCNB to replace JC Blume.† Dale Clonch made the motion to remove JC Blume and add Kay Phillips to the account, seconded by Lori Tabit.† The motion carried.†
Sonya Wood discussed with the commission that it has been brought to her attention that there are names that need to be added to the Veteranís Memorial for WWII.† She has done her research and there are names that the WV State Archives didnít have listed. When the memorial was built the names were placed on it based upon the information from the archives.† There are 29 names of soldiers that may be eligible to be listed as MIA or KIA.† These names were marked by the WV Veterans Archives as FOD, or in some cases nothing at all.† The data base didnít change their list, but stated the names found may very likely need to be added.† There is limited spacing on the memorial but there is ample room to add bricks with these names in one of the 4 designated brick areas.† We could get an 8 x 8 brick and put the same information on this brick and place in the upper right hand brick opening, designating only for additional names that were not placed at the time of original monument.††† If the contacts of this veteran would like to have the name placed on the veteranís memorial then if approved by the commission as MIA,† KIA or POW, then they could pay to have name added until there is no longer space available.† Lori Tabit made the motion to refer this back to the Veteranís Memorial Commission to suggest adding 8 x 8 bricks for any veteran that is found to be eligible to have name on the monument, but not previously on the list by WV State Archives,† select from the listings and if someone wants a name added that isnít on list they will have to pay, seconded by Kay Phillips.† The motion carried.†
The commission discussed that Jeff Smith an ex-employee of the Town of Fayetteville for 32 years passed away recently.† Sonya Wood discussed that after 32 years of service and drawing retirement from the town that he should be considered for the benefit of waving the opening and closing fee, currently at $1,100) for his burial.† The current bylaw reads that an employee must work or retire from the Town of Fayetteville.† Lori Tabit made the motion that a full-time employee for 20 years of service or if they retire from the Town of Fayetteville then the fee would be waived, Kay Phillips seconded the motion.† The motion carried.†
Sonya Wood discussed the Fall clean-up at the cemetery.† Everything is looking good but the guys will need to go around and turn the vases upside down.† She plans to do a work order and put the announcement in the paper.
There being no further business brought before the commission, the meeting was adjourned at 11:08 a.m.
