Welcome to CCAWV

Our mission is to "maintain a statewide agency for the purpose of promoting the interest and general welfare of local county government through a variety of communication tools; to represent county government before the West Virginia Legislature, administrative agencies, and the federal government; to educate the public about the value and need for county programs and services; and to facilitate the exchange of problems, ideas and solutions among county officials."

The discussion included the county building permit and whether or not the amounts should be adjusted to fall more in-line with the surrounding municipal permit fees. Currently the county’s is much lower and a flat fee, without consideration of whether it’s for residential or commercial. While the commission wants permit fees to be fair, they also want to encourage building in the county and don’t want to make the permits too high. One idea suggested making the permits available online as a way to encourage more people to adhere to the requirement and more permits might be purchased. There was also discussion regarding the county floodplain permit fee and how it measured up to other counties.

The idea of putting special excess levies before the voters for special purposes was also discussed, along with new requirements for local dog breeding licenses and monitoring, mobile /modular home permits, and expanding the Wood County Drug Testing program to control county costs and increase county revenues.
