Mayor to represent Morgan County
BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Town of Bath Mayor Susan Webster told council members she recently was appointed to the Eastern Panhandle Transportation Authority by the Morgan County Commission. The EPTA is made up of representatives from Morgan, Berkeley and Jefferson counties.
Webster said concerns about U.S. 522, which runs through town, will be brought to the group's attention.
Webster also said that W.Va. 9 from the town to the Berkeley County line "used to be a back road but now is a major commuter road and needs to be improved." She said the state is losing tax dollars because people avoid W.Va. 9 to shop in Martinsburg, W.Va., and opt to shop in Hagerstown or Winchester, Va.
Bath Police Department's Operation Slow Down "is off and running."
