Grant will provide new heart monitors



MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The Berkeley County Commission has accepted $42,500 in money from the West Virginia Legislative Budget Digest. Officials said $40,000 will be used to provide new heart monitors for ambulances in the county.

State Sen. John Unger, D-Berkeley, worked on that grant, as well as $70,000 obtained earlier for a hazardous materials unit and a fire safety house to be taken to schools.

Another $2,500 will be used for emergency lights in the north county fire station to warn motorists when emergency vehicles are coming on to the road. It was obtained by state Del. John Overington, R-Berkeley.




MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The Berkeley County Commission has received word from the West Virginia Public Service Commission that the state PSC has approved the merger of the three water districts in Berkeley County. The idea is to provide more efficient and coordinated water service.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The Berkeley County Commission accepted about $20,000 in federal grant money and agreed to match it with up to $5,000 of their own to purchase cameras for sheriff's deputies cruisers. The money will buy four cameras. Eleven vehicles are equipped with them now.
