Serving the citizens of our community
McMechen is nestled in the beautiful hills along the Ohio River in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia. The city was incorporated in 1905 and named for the original settlers; William and Sidney (Johnson) McMechen.
Dear Citizens of McMechen:
The City of McMechen is continuing to work with Governor Justice, the WV Department of Health and Human Resources and the Marshall County Health Department to minimize the risk of the Coronavirus to both citizens and employees. Utility payments and citations will only be accepted by mail or drop box. You may pay using check, money order or cash. If you do not have the exact amount when using cash, any additional amount will be applied to your account. During this time, late fees will not be applied and there will be no shut offs. Trash pickup will operate as usual. NO city employee will be permitted to enter any residents. We will do everything we can for our citizens, we must however keep our employees safe.
The City building will remain on lock down, the gym is now officially closed, and offices will be staffed as needed. All non-essential services will be postponed until further notice. Building permits, city license and B&O taxes will be conducted by phone, mail and drop box. If you need a building permit, call the city building and we can let you know the amount. It can then be left in the drop box and a permit will be mailed out, if needed, please call the city building.
According to Governor Justice’s order, all parks, playgrounds, basketball courts, shelters and public restrooms are currently closed and will remain that way until further notice.
We will continue to work with State and Local Officials and make necessary adjustments as needed. We are all going through this together, we ask for your patience during this time.
