Granville Mayor Patricia ..., 12 Mar 2015 [cached]
Granville Mayor Patricia Lewis read from a prepared statement, outlining some of the projects the town has undertaken in preparation for the opening of a new home for WVU and Black Bear baseball.
Lewis said the town's police force is also preparing for the influx of traffic the new ballpark will bring prior to the construction of the interchange.

Granville Launches Riverfront Project - Morgantown Dominion Post - 7 September 2012, 7 Sept 2012 [cached]
Granville Mayor Patricia Lewis said the boat ramp will be for small motor crafts only. "This ramp won't be for anything really large. We are restricted in terms of size and depth of the water. Small fishing boats, recreational boats, Skidoos, motor crafts like that will be able to get in the water by using the ramp."
Funding for the project will come from a portion of the town's hotel/motel tax, which requires half of Granville's hotel/motel revenue be given to the Morgantown Visitors Bureau, Lewis said.
"The initial estimate on the boat ramp a few years ago was $100,000; that of course we will have engineered, we can't do that ourselves," Lewis said. "We don't have a price on the floating dock yet because we are going to phase that part in."
Over the next five years, Lewis said, the town will work to improve Riverfront Park.
"We are planning to put down gravel in the parking lot to make it more usable. We are going to install portable restrooms similar to the ones at Dorsey's Knob, and picnic tables," she said. "Those are the kinds of things we will do ourselves. Every year for five years we will do something down there until it looks like we want it to."
The town has planned to add the launching ramp and floating dock for several years, Lewis said, but various circumstances prevented officials from moving forward with the project.
"We just didn't have everything in order," she said.
Lewis said community members can also send comments to 319 Main St., Granville, WV 26534. They will be forwarded to the DEP.
[Granville, WV] Locks Resolution OK’d - Morgantown Dominion Post - 15 August 2012, 15 Aug 2012 [cached]
Granville Mayor Patricia Lewis presented council with the resolution that was offered to her by the Upper Mon River Association (UMRA), a regional organization that promotes development of the area encompassed by the drainage basin for the upper Monongahela River.
"UMRA proposed that we pass this resolution as a means of supporting local efforts to keep the Mon River's upper locks open," Lewis said. "It is to our advantage to keep the upper locks open."
Council agreed with Lewis and the resolution was passed unanimously.
Lewis and England also informed council that closing the upper locks could be problematic because if closed and not properly maintained, they could become unusable.
"That is something that needs to be considered heavily before the USACE goes forward with closing them," England said.
At its Aug. 7 meeting, Morgantown City Council approved a resolution supporting the continued use of the Upper Monongahela River locks, and the Marion County Commission passed a similar resolution Aug. 1, Lewis said.
Granville Strikes It Rich - Morgantown Dominion Post - 19 July 2009, 19 July 2009 [cached]
Its feasible to start it now," Granville Mayor Patricia Lewis said.
The first beautification efforts include creating a park neat' the old CONSOL piers. Lewis said the town council has approved preliminary plans for the park, but nothing is finalized yet.
Lewis said she hopes they can begin some initial work on the park this summer and h a v e most of the project completed within two years.
Lewis said. There is no estimate on the total cost because the project is still early in the planning stage.
She added the town should be able to do some of the work, such as paving, but other parts will still have to be put out for bid.
The river taxi is planned to go in at the park. Lewis said. But details on how it would operate ain't be finalized until the dock is completed and they have a place to dock the taxi.
The park would be the first of its kind. in this area. on that side of the Monongahela River. Lewis said it will be nice for Granville residents - and even Westover - to be able to walk to It riverside park instead of having to drive across the river for one.
Lewis admitted the number one project the city wants to complete is something else sorely needed in Granville.
Lewis said.
Granville Town Council has been turned down twice for a Transportation Efficiency Grant, Lewis said.
Lewis said she believes the town has enough of its own money to pay its 20 percent share of the total cost. Then, she said.
Lewis said the town estimates the entire sidewalk project would cost 81.5 million. That number could change. however, once they have a better idea of the condition of the storm drains.
The town will take any money they can get through the stimulus to help their sidewalks. Lewis said. If they get the full amount needed, the town would have to put up $300.000 to secure the grant. The project is so large and complex that Lewis said it will have to be bid out. If the stimulus money doesn't come through. Lewis said they will look at working on sections of Granville sidewalks as early as next summer. hinds gathered from taxes from the town center would be used. However town officials would only be able to approve the work in sections they could pay for up front. In addition to adding or repairing sidewalks, the town would also repave streets and replace storm drams. Lewis said. They could do all the work at once instead of completing a portion of paving and then having to tear it up to put in new storm drains.
Renner said she would only want to have it taken care of all at once because if they only fixed one aspect of the roads at a time, it would end up costing more money in the end.
"That's just throwing money in the garbage," Renner said.
Finding the funds The town hasn't been able to focus solely on its residents because it had to pay for support for the town center. Lewis said. She added that even though services such as an increased police presence and snow removal were needed for the center, they have benefited the residents, too.
Eleven more police officers have been hired since the center opened in 2005 and more cruisers have been purchased, Lewis said. Before the shopping center.
Lewis said this was something she told employees she would get them when the town had the money With the shopping center, she was able to fulfill her promise.
Lewis said the town doesn't plan to hire more officers or employees anytime soon because they are running out of space to house them and don't need them to run Granville.
They have been able to add so much staff because of the windfall in Business and Occupation taxes from the town center, Lewis said. The B&O taxes have increased the town's budget by nearly $2 million.
Lewis said she recalls many sleepless nights when she was trying to figure out how the town was going to be able to fund everything and provide for the residents.
Lewis said. But, residents have seen a benefit from that as well. The town now has 24-hour police protection, a second snow-plow was purchased and now they will see different beautification projects in their town.
The town center has given to us," Lewis said. "Now we can give to the residents."
Residents react Lewis admitted that some Granville residents probably feel it took a bit too long for them to see the outcome from the money gained from the shopping area, but they will soon be able to see those results.
"We told people from the beginning," Lewis said.
Lewis said the goal all along was to be able to take care of their residents.
Lewis said.
