Grand prize winner

The Town of Fayetteville was awarded the 2013 West Virginia Make it Shine

Award at the West Virginia Recycling, Litter and Solid Waste Authority’s annual

conference by the West

Virginia Rehabilitation

Environmental Action Plan (REAP), a division of the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection. Bill Lanham, Fayetteville town

superintendent, presented the grand prize award and a check for $500 for future beautification projects to Mayor James Akers at the Nov. 7 town council meeting. “(Fayetteville and the other winners) are shining examples of the great pride West Virginians take in making their communities cleaner and better places to live and work,” said Danny Haught, chief of the DEP’s REAP

program, which oversees the state’s Make It Shine efforts. REAP Coordinator Travis Cooper said Fayetteville excelled in its Keep America Beautiful program

of “Keeping Fayetteville Beautiful” in litter reduction, its ability to reduce open dumps in the Town of

Fayetteville, its many beautification projects and flower gardens,

increasing its recycling program,

and passing a dilapidated housing ordinance. For more information about the Clean Community Awards, contact Cooper at 1-800-322-5530 or by e-mail at
