Water-pipe project nears completion

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Randy Watson of Thrasher Engineering, the firm overseeing the more than $2 million water-pipe replacement project, said the project is almost complete.

At Monday night's Bath Town Council meeting, Watson said 18,078 feet of main line piping has been installed and 191 new water meters have gone in.

He said 90 percent of the city street asphalt repairs have been completed, and since the project is nearly finished, the one-year warranty period will begin next week.

Council meetings to be held on Tuesdays

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - The Bath Town Council approved changing council meeting days from Monday to Tuesday. The time will stay the same - 5:30 p.m.


Margie McCumbee Allgyer said an ordinance must be passed and the first reading will be presented at the next meeting on July 2.

Bath Mayor Susan J. Webster said one of the reasons for the change is holiday Mondays automatically change the meetings to Tuesday, so changing the meeting day would be less confusing.

K-9 grant awarded to Bath police

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - The Bath Police Department announced Monday that its K-9 program received a $6,000 grant from State Farm Insurance.

At Monday's Bath Town Council meeting, Chief James Minton said no matching funds have to be met, and an official presentation will be made on July 24 at 2 p.m. at Luke Christie's State Farm Insurance office on U.S. 522 South.

The Town of Bath is the local government inside Berkeley Springs.
