Bath drafts courthouse proposal
BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - The Town of Bath drafted a proposal to the Morgan County Commissioners for possible inclusion in the new county courthouse and will deliver the proposal later this week.
At Monday's town council meeting, Councilman David Crosby, who chairs the finance committee, said the town council is interested in being included only if the town offices and the Bath police department remain together.
The town space would require 2,500 square feet at a cost of about $575,000, Crosby said. The town would have about $350,000 from selling some assets and would need about $250,000 from grants or other funding sources.
"We believe that this might be possible if there is cooperation between the county and the town," Crosby wrote in the draft.
