Elkhorn City Getting Creative

With the coal industry in a slump, that results in less money coming to coal producing counties in the form of coal severance money.This is resulting in less revenue that counties had long come accustomed to receiving.It’s not only counties seeing a reduction, but many small municipalities are experiencing hardships with less coal severance monies coming into their coffers.Elkhorn City is one such municipality. Now local officials are thinking outside of the box like the ATV trail system currently in the works could produce not only jobs but much-needed revenue for the region, including a boon for Elkhorn City.
