MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Two recreational lake projects in Berkeley County have received funding, one from the County Commission and the other from the state.
On Thursday, the County Commission authorized the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks and Recreation Board to spend up to $25,000 more to finish excavation on a three-to-four-acre lake at the 137-acre Poor House Farm Park three miles west of Martinsburg.
The Commission in September approved spending $25,000 to begin excavation on the lake project. The lake will be used for fishing and other recreational activities. Parks and Recreation Board Director Steve Catlett told the Commission that the additional funding would help finish the excavating so the lake could be completed by fall.
