The Kanawha City Council has updated their code of ordinances to be in line with state code in regards to concealed weapons. The ordinance doesn’t allow for concealed weapons unless the person holds a state permit issued under State Code 724. This update was a procedural move, and Mayor Gloria Sobek stated that there has not been an incident in Kanawha so far.
City officials continue to look over old ordinances to see if improvements need to be made and the city council felt it was in the best interests to bring their code of ordinances in line with state code.
