KEYSER - The Keyser City Council will hear their second report from grant writer David Smarik, and talk about “dressing up” the back of the City Hall building when they meet in regular session Wednesday evening.
Smarik, whom the council contracted with in October to research, apply for and administer grants for city projects, is currently pursuing funding to study the possibility of building a new City Hall.
In the meantime, city officials have been working to spruce up the aging building and surrounding ground in order to create a more pleasant impression.
A second-hand storage trailer and some equipment was removed from the parking lot next to the building, and for Christmas, a giant Frosty the Snowman has been erected in the parking lot across the street.
Other items on the agenda for Wednesday include:
New Business:
 - Data Max - Business license/tax collections
 - Personnel manual updates
 - Personnel issues (may require an executive session)
The meeting gets underway at 6 p.m. and is open to the public.
