McMechen

Serving the citizens of our community

Welcome

McMechen is nestled in the beautiful hills in the northern panhandle of West Virginia, along the Ohio River. The city was incorporated in 1905 and named for the original settlers, William and Sidney (Johnson) McMechen.

Announcement

  

By now most of you are aware that we have a problem with the areas between 21st, 22nd and Marshall Streets. Specifically, an older drain pipe has collapsed causing residual impacts above and below ground.


We are actively working with internal technical experts to determine an appropriate repair as well as with the WVDOH, as they have leaned forward to partner with us on many of the major repairs necessary to stabilize the area. WVDOH has classified this work as an emergency action and your City Government is moving forward under a similar tempo.


We have begun the work of determining a correct technical repair and anticipate additional details within the next couple of weeks. The intent is to also have a schedule of activities to announce for everyone's awareness.


Specific to 21st St., we have determined that access may be an issue while certain repairs are being performed and have started to develop an emergency plan for an alternate/emergency route. In the meantime, please do what you can as individuals and family members to prepare yourselves personally should a delay or unforeseen mishap occur, and we have to ultimately rely on emergency measures.


If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or my staff at City Hall. More details will be forthcoming on this situation and you will be informed via a combination of efforts & ways, to include all official City messaging platforms.


The City website is the central information platform for all citizens. If receive information that is contradictory to the details provide on that site, you may consider it not official.


More details to follow. Thank you for your continued patience.
