Council updated on replacement project

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Randy Watson of Thrasher Engineering told the Bath Town Council at Tuesday's meeting that 69 percent of the main line piping has been installed in the town's waterline replacement project.

Watson said bad weather prevented some work from being done, but the targeted job completion is ahead of schedule.

"In April (or) May, the job will be done," Watson said.

The contract deadline is July 24.

Watson said the contractor, Cowgirl Up, is working on Pratt and South Green streets and will move on to South Laurel Street next week.

Watson said $1,266,000 has been spent so far. The contract value is $2,089,567, he said.

Thrasher is the firm overseeing the town's water pipe replacement project.

Firm to help pay for Streetscape project

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Carl M. Freeman Associates, which purchased Coolfont Resort in late 2005, will help the town pay for the development of a master plan for the town's Streetscape project, Mayor Susan Webster said Tuesday.


Webster said Robert Marggraf, vice president of the company, told the town's Streetscape Committee "up to $120,000" would be put into the project.

She said the company will hire a consultant for the project and will pay for other consultants toward the project design.

The mayor and council members are up for election in June for a two-year term.
