Mayor Fetters updated those in attendance on several key initiatives that will be on the agenda for 2018. Mayor Fetters talked to the group about accomplishments during 2017 and plans for his administration for 2018. Some of the administration’s plans for 2018 include more paving of streets, additional enhancements at Veterans Memorial at Memorial Park, the new dog park, UB Odd Fellows Building in downtown Huntington, new neighborhood associations, the Etna Avenue project, eliminating blight and the cleanup at H-K Porter on Sabine Street. Fetters said, “If I have a legacy project for my time in office, it is the cleanup of the H-K Porter site. Those individuals that live in that neighborhood deserve better.”

State Senator Andy Zay, Tinisha Weigelt, Office Manager and Financial Administrator for Congressman Jim Banks’ office and several elected officials were also in attendance this morning.
