CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Members of Charleston City Council’s finance committee will meet behind closed doors Tuesday evening to discuss possible legal action the city may take in connection with the recent water emergency.
Mayor Danny Jones said city leaders need to decide which way to go after an estimated $120,000 in tax revenue was lost because of the chemical spill that resulted in the water emergency.
The full council could discuss the issue after the finance committee meeting.
Kanawha County Delegate Meesha Poore gave her fellow House members a big thank-you Monday in connection with the crisis.
Poore said the delegates stepped forward with lots of supplies to help residents.
“The question has been answered about West Virginia,” Poore said. “What are we doing for others? And you’re helping all West Virginians and I want to say thank you,” Poore said.
