The 10-acre soccer field on the east side of U.S. 522, is being designed for one adult-size field and another larger playing field.
He said in-kind donations for grading the soccer fields are committed, and the work will begin when the weather improves.
Who directs traffic when lines go down?
BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - When power lines are being repaired, should the fire department direct traffic?
That was the question at Friday's Morgan County Commission meeting.
Morgan County officials Sheriff Ronnie McIntire, Prosecuting Attorney Debra MH McLaughlin, OES Director Dave Michael, South Morgan Fire Department Chief Mark Miller and Great Cacapon Fire Department Chief Roger Steiner were asked to discuss it.
Miller said when power lines were down on U.S. 522, the fire department waited until the power company came and removed them from the highway and determined it was safe for traffic to use the road.
He said that is what fire departments are supposed to do. Miller said the power company called the fire company back to direct traffic five hours later.
Miller said the fire department does not have the manpower to direct traffic.
He asked Sheriff McIntire if the volunteer reserves could be called instead, and the sheriff said that the reserves could direct traffic, but linemen from the highway should be there.
Commission President Glen R. Stotler said he felt that once the power company determined the power is dead, the fire company should not be needed.
McLaughlin said she will look into the legal aspects of the situation.
Stotler said he will request a follow-up meeting March 21.
