Exotic entertainment ban introduced

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Mayor Susan Webster introduced an exotic entertainment restrictions ordinance to the Bath Town Council at its Monday meeting. Webster said the ordinance is similar to the one adopted by Morgan County.

Council members had not reviewed the ordinance and decided to vote on accepting the first reading at the next council meeting on Nov. 1. Webster said the additional time will allow her to gather more information to outlaw exotic entertainment.

Chief wants street to become one-way

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Bath Police Chief Tony Lynch asked Bath Town Council members Monday to consider making Mercer Street one-way southbound from Fairfax Street to W.Va. 9.

Lynch said the narrow Mercer Street is a safety hazard when cars have to stop to allow oncoming traffic to pass. Lynch said the town has "one-way" and "do not enter" signs already available.


Financial planner to speak at town meeting

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Michael Dougherty will speak to Bath town residents today at 7 p.m. at First United Methodist Church on Green Street, Mayor Susan Webster said.

Dougherty, a financial planner with West Virginia University, will be on hand to give suggestions to the town, Webster said.

Town receives grant

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Mayor Susan Webster said Monday that the town received the Urban Forestry Cool Community Grant it applied for in August.

Next spring, the town will purchase trees that will be planted on public land along Washington Street, Webster said. The grant of $3,961 will be matched by the town in kind by supplying labor.

"Traffic causes heat and the trees will help cool down the streets," said Webster.
