About the Jefferson County Public Service District

The Jefferson County Public Service District was established by the Jefferson County Commission December 1, 1983 and organized exclusively for the purposes set forth in Chapter 16, Article 13A of the Code of West Virginia of 1931, as amended (the "Act".) This section of the Act allows County Commissions to create Public Service Districts outside of municipalities and to empower these Districts to take measures necessary to preserve public health, comfort and convenience to citizenry in designated territories.
