W.Va. Courtesy Patrol Contract Extension Sought
The operator of West Virginia's Courtesy Patrol is seeking a two-month extension of its state contract.
The Courtesy Patrol is one of nine nonprofit entities overseen by the nonprofit Citizens Conservation Corps of West Virginia.
The Register-Herald reports that the Beckley-based nonprofit's contract through the Division of Highways expired in July 2013 and has received three-month extensions since then.
Due to an oversight, the Legislature didn't appropriate money for the roadside service for the fiscal year that begins July 1. Local lawmakers say they expect the funding to be addressed in a special session before then.
Courtesy Patrol director Jennifer Douglas says the Citizens Conservation Corps of West Virginia has operated the service since it was revived in November 1998.
