After many months of conversations, The City of Belmont, has received funding from Governor Justice, thru Senator Mike Azinger and the Local Economic Development Assistance Grant to start building a community/emergency shelter.  Letters, meetings, and conversations with many state representatives have taken place over the last year with Mayor Barnes trying to secure funds to build a community/emergency shelter for the City of Belmont.  Finally on December 12,2022 Mike Azinger came to City Hall and delivered a check from Governor Justice in the amount of 20,000 to Mayor Barnes. This 20,000 will help with the start of the community/emergency shelter for Belmont.
