Office of the Mayor

Greetings from the Mayor's Office!


What a way to start off summer! Civil War Days, Yoga in the Park, Guided Trail Hikes, Scavenger Hunts, Barboursville Buckle Series, Mother’s Day Tea, Vineyard in the Village and an Outdoor Movie Night! The month of May had something for everyone and the rest of the summer months are going to be no different. Find the schedule of event at:


The Village of Barboursville’s Facebook page or the CVB Facebook Page. Thank you to all of our residents, vendors and visitors for making these events successful and many thanks to all of our sponsors. We had lots of fun and look forward to an exciting rest of the summer here in the Village. Having said that, with the increased traffic, please utilize extreme caution when traveling through the park. There will most assuredly be many picnics and activities where children will be present.


Speaking of the rest of summer you have probably noticed the construction in Sadler Field and we are excited to see the new farmer’s market pavilion completed. Once again many of our community partners have stepped up to help complete this project and we are so appreciative of our local businesses taking part in projects that will improve the quality of life for our residents. Many thanks to The Barboursville Convention and Visitors Bureau for their support of these projects as well, they have been instrumental in helping get many of these projects off the ground!


The Farmer’s Market is set to open on June 3rd and we hope you’ll go enjoy the new space as well as support the local farmers!


Many thanks to Retired Deputy Fire Chief Jerry Beckett for being the guest speaker at our Memorial Day Service. Jerry honorably served his country in the Army, his fire department job and continues to be a shining example of public service to our City and the area as a whole. Thanks should also be given to Boy Scout Troop 733, Corporal Brad Simmons, Sasha Colette and Pastor Kerry Bart for their part in helping us pay tribute to those that have paid the ultimate price for our country. To all of you reading this that have also honorably served, we thank you too!


As a reminder, you’re always invited to attend a council meeting, send us an email, a Facebook message or stop in at city hall and let us know how we are doing. Council Meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month (unless otherwise noted) at 7:30pm in the community center. You are also welcome to email me directly at: or find us on Facebook! We look forward to hearing from you!


Progress continues!
