Town of Coeburn
Town Manager, Drew Mullins, presented Council members last week with a proposed Budget for the towns take over of the Public Works Department. When compared the towns projected budget line-item-by-line-item with VWNA current contract, the Town Manager has estimated a monthly cost to operate public works of $84,377 per month in comparison with VWNA monthly cost of $117,866, which represents a monthly savings of $33,489 per month or $401,871 per year. In addition, the Towns Public works projected budget included adding 3 part-time public works positions and a 10% contingency equaling $112,648 which may bring extra savings to the town, if not used. The town offered the VWNA employees continued employment with the town in their current capacity and eleven VWNA employees have applied and were granted positions with the town.
Message from the Town Manager

Town Manager Loretta Mays

Welcome to the Town of Coeburn online! I hope you find our site to be user friendly and informative.

Our quiet town is nestled in the hills of Southwest Virginia, just off Highway 58. Nearly 2,000 folks call Coeburn home. No matter the season, our downtown area is quaint and cozy, resembling a painting of a town long ago. The town owns and operates Lays Hardware Center for the Arts in the heart of downtown, which offers music and events for the entire family. A stop along the Crooked Road, we will also be an attraction promoted by Heartwood, the region's upcoming Artisan Center.

I am excited to be a part of a new direction for our town. We are aggressively preparing our community for growth through the recent development of a new Comprehensive Plan and a concentrated effort on updating our Subdivision and Zoning Ordinances. There is much to do in moving our town forward!

Whether you're a resident, a native, or just a passer-by, I welcome you to Coeburn - The Home of Friendly People!
