Cabell County School Board Votes to Annex Two Schools to Huntington

HNN Staff

The Huntington East Middle School cleared a hurdle for truly following in the footsteps of its namesake. The Cabell County Board of Education voted 5-0 , Tuesday, July 21, for  the new middle school and the nearby Cabell County Career Technical Center to be part of Huntington.

Mayor Steve Williams appeared before the board to explain the benefits which include the city's police and fire services.  The board will pay just over $15,000 in municipal fees; the employees will become subject to the city's $3.00 user fee, which is $156 per year.

Approval must now clear the Huntington Planning Commission, Huntington City Council and Cabelll County Commission. Mayor Williams said the process will likely be complete in September or October.
