City of Princeton

PRINCETON — As the State of West Virginia begins slowly reopening itself from restrictions imposed as a reaction to COVID-19, the city of Princeton is following the state’s guidelines.

City Manager Mike Webb said Wednesday, “We’re following the federal and state guidelines as well as the recommendations of health officials as to how we are reopening.”

As for the immediate future, he said the City Council committee meetings Wednesday and Monday’s Princeton City Council would be teleconferences. The number to call is 1-917-900-1022 with the conference ID being 745-4776.

“We encourage the public to call in during our meetings,” Webb said.

As for having in-person meetings, he said the City would follow Governor Jim Justice’s guidelines but were hoping to have a live meeting in June.

“We’re very proud of the way our citizens have conducted themselves during the crisis,” Webb said.

While city offices are still closed to the public, he added that there is a drop box for residents to place bill payments in front of the Municipal Building.

“We’re working on getting software to make bill-paying more accessible, “Webb said.
