ELKINS, W.Va. (AP) - Elkins officials say they’re grateful for funds bequeathed to city departments by a resident.
Longtime resident Mario H. Toumayan died in April 2013 at age 75. In his will, he left $62,000 each to the police and fire departments, and $10,000 to the parks department.
The departments received the money recently following the settlement of Toumayan’s estate.
Police Chief S.D. Richards tells The Inter-Mountain (https://bit.ly/1AUbW73 ) that his department will use the money to buy a vehicle and to fix several maintenance problems.
Fire Chief Tom Meader says his department will use the money to pay off loans.
