Town of Bath briefs

December 02, 2008

Stop signs, crosswalks approved

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- The intersection of Mercer and Independence streets will get four-way stop signs, Mayor Susan J. Webster said at Tuesday night's Bath Town Council meeting.

Webster said the four-way stop at the intersection was requested two years ago but was never approved by the West Virginia Department of Highways.

She met recently with DOH Safety Engineer Randy Sigley and Morgan County highway administrator John Coleman, and Sigley approved the request.  

Several crosswalks were approved by Sigley, Webster said. They will be placed at Independence and Washington streets, Congress and Washington streets, between the Country Inn and Citizens National Bank, at Ewing Street and W.Va. 9, and across U.S. 522 at the north end of town.



Town code ready for vote

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- The Town of Bath's updated codification of laws has been in the works for more than two years. 

Councilwoman Nancy Harvey, who heads the ordinance committee, said the last time a rule book was done for the town was in 1981, but pages were missing and the town used state law as a guideline. 

Harvey said Bolivar, W.Va., code was used as a foundation for the Town of Bath code. 

All the Bath laws are updated and finally together in one large book, which will be accessible in the Town Hall office, she said. 

The new code is to be adopted at the Jan. 6 council meeting.


Meter parking free for holiday

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- Town parking meters will be bagged and parking will be free from Dec. 18 to Dec. 25.

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