The City administration and crews daily work to address the needs of the residents of the City of St. Clairsville. Our highest priorities include: ensuring the public’s safety; providing electricity, and water and sewer utilities; and maintaining the many miles of the City’s streets and alleys.
Long-term growth prospects and the upgrade of existing City assets are the driving forces behind the City’s efforts to fund a new water reservoir. This water tank is needed to replace the 1929 elevated water tank behind the Municipal Building which is fast approaching the end of its useful life. Under review at this time is the possible replacement of the City’s water treatment plant at the earliest opportunity. Out of sight but never out of mind, City administrators also are constantly evaluating the viability of the City’s underground infrastructure. This includes budgeting, securing the design of, and planning for the upgrade of the network of pipes which serve our residents. Overseeing growth and daily construction efforts is an expanding role of the City’s administration.
As all residents are aware, our streets are in constant use, requiring snow removal in the winter, patching year round, the channeling of water for everyone’s safety, signage and guard rail decisions, as well as the near annual focus on repaving the streets in greatest need of repair.
Along with these fixed assets, the City’s staff also works to provide and maintain amenities which set St. Clairsville apart from other local communities in the Ohio Valley. We are fortunate to be able to offer for all of our residents many recreation options which include the National Road Bikeway and the Recreation Center. In addition, the City’s beautification efforts last year round through the display of flower baskets and tree planting in the downtown area, as well as the maintenance of Central Park and Halloran Park.
