Town asked about senior activities

CLEAR SPRING - Susan MacDonald of the Washington County Commission on Aging Inc. on Monday asked the Clear Spring Town Council whether its members knew of an organization in town that might sponsor a place for senior citizens to socialize.

Among other things, the facility, possibly a church, would provide seniors with a meal, MacDonald said.

Mayor Paul D. Hose Jr. said the council would look into the proposal.

Allegheny Power to look into streetlights

CLEAR SPRING - Clear Spring Councilman Theodore Hovermale told Mayor Paul D. Hose and the other members of the council on Monday that Allegheny Power wasn't fixing some streetlights in the community.

Hovermale said maintaining the streetlights in question is Allegheny Power's responsibility. A light on Mill Street and one at the intersection of Cumberland and Martin streets haven't worked for several months, he said.


Hovermale said Allegheny Power has failed to respond to the town's work orders to repair the lights.

David Neurohr, a spokesman for Allegheny Power, said Monday night that the company takes its streetlight accounts very seriously. Allegheny Power would look into the problem in more detail today, he said.
