Advocacy

Championing Marion County Businesses

This division’s objectives include communicating business positions on legislative issues to elected officials, offering guidance for monitoring business legislation and serving as a liaison between government and the local business community. The MCCC works in cooperation with the small cities in Marion County to find way of improving services and reducing the costs associated with those services. It is the belief of the MCCC that we will only realize our potential by working together. The Governmental Affairs Division supports legislation covering a variety of subjects including:

  • State funding for the re-development of the 100 block in downtown Fairmont
  • The completion of a new WV State Office Complex in downtown Fairmont
  • Rail trail and riverfront enhancements supporting the North Marion area of the county and enhancements to the Rivesville riverfront.
  • The demolition of the 4th St. Bridge and continued expansion of Locust Ave.
  • Support for the WVHTC Foundation in the growth of the I-79 Technology Park
  • Support for the Marion County Development Authority and other development agencies in order to create economic development opportunities and enhancements throughout the entire county.
