Clarksburg City Council held their regularly scheduled Council meeting Thursday, January 3, 2019 in Council Chambers.

Council voted unanimously Thursday evening to approve the second reading of the city ordinance that provides permanent financing for the Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center.

In addition to the second reading of the ordinance a proclamation declaring January as “United Way of Harrison County” month in Clarksburg was read by Councilman Gary Bowden and was presented to United Way Executive Director, Tina Yoke and Brock Malcom, Campaign Chairman of the United Way.
