Club members concerned about possible move

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Morgan County Boys & Girls Club board members Gale Shade and Keith Unger and its director, Chris Risinger, told the Morgan County Commission on Friday that it would cost $180 each to rewire the 13 computers in the club's computer lab if they had to move into another part of the county-owned building.

The old school building also houses the Morgan County Health Department and the county office of the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR).

Office space will be available next month because the DHHR gave notice to the Morgan County Commission that it is moving, Shade said.

The Morgan County Boys & Girls club space is next to the Morgan County Health Department, and Shade said the health department is interested in expanding its offices.

Shade told the commission that the $10,000 grant the club received from the West Virginia Legislative Digest in 2000 was used to renovate space in the club.

Risinger said the club has a "waiting list for kids and having to move to the DHHR space doesn't add much more space."

Commissioner Tommy Swaim said the Morgan County Chapter of the Red Cross also wants space there.

"We will meet with both parties and talk about exactly what the needs are and then talk to the Red Cross to find out what they need," Commission President Glen Stotler said.
