West Virginia Commission Approves Elevator Repairs by Otis

The Harrison County Commission in West Virginia approved a payout of US$40,000 for elevator repair during a regular meeting at the end of September, The Exponent Telegraph reported. During the meeting, commissioners voted 2-1 to approve a US$40,073 contract with Otis for service and repair of the jail annex elevator. The commission can pay the sum in full upfront or pay only half of the total cost up front with a 10% increase in the price tag, according to the service and repair order. The commission president questioned the cause of the elevator issues, and the county administrator said the problem was caused by water damage and a blown transformer that was remedied in recent weeks. It is not known if the water damage was caused by roof leaks or flooding of the annex basement. The commission president voted in favor of the repairs, stating “we need an elevator,” but asked that the issues be resolved. The dissenting commissioner voted as such because he was not comfortable voting for repairs when the cause of the issue is unclear.
