Citizens recommend nuisance ordinance
BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Noise and nuisance laws are lacking in Spruce Pine Hollow subdivision, and a state Senate bill allows county commissions to create laws to eliminate them, subdivision resident Marvin Miller said at Friday's Morgan County Commission meeting.
Miller said in Spruce Pine Hollow, a resident's tied dogs continuously bark until 2 a.m., another resident plays music so loud it makes dishes vibrate, and people ride dirt bikes on the subdivision's private road.
Miller requested the commissioners consider an ordinance.
"It won't be simple to put an ordinance in place, and it would be hard to enforce it," Commissioner Bob Ford said.
Miller said concerned residents met with the commission in September 2002, "and you said you would look into it," he said. Miller also said the Morgan County sheriff will support the law.
