Charles Town City Council members OK zoning for business on Mildred Street

CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. - Charles Town City Council members Tuesday night approved zoning to allow a business on Mildred Street that will have video lottery machines and food.

Operators of Sheri's Top Shelf Inc. also want to serve beer and wine, and the zoning will allow them to seek a license to serve alcohol, Mayor Peggy Smith said.

A spokeswoman for Sheri's Top Shelf Inc. said the business will be in the building where the Big Arm formerly operated at 304 N. Mildred St. The woman said she will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and there will be no "rowdiness."


Police chief, Charles Town Council discuss Jefferson Avenue building

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Charles Town Police Chief Barry Subelsky continued to talk with Charles Town City Council members Tuesday night about acquiring a building at 34 Jefferson Ave. for a new police station.

The former furniture store building is being eyed as a way to give the police department more room, and Subelsky told council members he would like to see some engineering work conducted on the Jefferson Avenue building to determine if a second story could be added.

Besides giving the police department more room, the building could be used for expanded meeting space for city public meetings, Subelsky said.

The building is for sale, Mayor Peggy Smith said.
