The Huntington Municipal Development Authority will hold a special meeting at 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 16 which will include executive session discussion of the Huntington Yacht Club and Mountaineer Gas. The reason for the non-public executive session will be attorney client privilege to discuss litigation and/or pending litigation.

Previously, the Yacht Club has been the subject of negotiations pertaining to the leaking Harris Riverfront barge, which was previously known as Holderbys Landing (restaurant). City Council in November authorized turning the barge over to Superior Marine which will remove it from the dock in exchange for salvage value.

Water level and the U.S. Coast Guard have been cited as reasons for the delay in removal of the barge.

The removal of the former marina will lead to a call for redevelopment ideas for the eastern portion of Harris Riverfront Park.

In the Mountaineer Gas Company matter, HMDA has asked that gas lines be relocated so that property at Kinetic Park will not be obstructed. A suit is pending in Cabell County Circuit Court.
