HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. - Del. John Doyle on Saturday said a change to Jefferson County's annexation policy could be one of the county's only agenda items addressed during this year's regular session of the West Virginia Legislature. Because it is an election year, many politicians likely will be more concerned with giving speeches during the 60-day session than passing legislation, said Doyle, D-Jefferson. "There is a premium on posturing as opposed to production," Doyle said.

WILLIAMSPORT - Resident James T. Jewell on Monday proposed changes to the town's parking meter system. He suggested that the town issue color-coded monthly or yearly permits that people could buy instead of paying to use meters. He also recommended that the town hire two part-time meter readers, who would not receive benefits, instead of one full-time person. Jewell said the changes would help turn around a deficit in the parking meter program. "This is the only moneymaker we have," he said.

Mayor Paul N. Crampton Jr. withdrew proposed noise and loitering ordinances from the town council's agenda Monday night at the request of the Washington County sheriff, who wants prosecutors to review the proposals to see if they are enforceable. “They can't just create ordinances without running it by us to see whether it's even enforceable or not,” Sheriff Douglas W. Mullendore said in a telephone interview after the Funkstown Town Council meeting. “They can pass ordinances all day long, but if they're not enforceable, they're just a waste of paper,” he said.

Boonsboro resident Heidi Welsh said she did a study in 1993, talking to area residents who were for or against the Civil War Railroad Trail, but things have changed since then. “At that time (the representatives) did the wrong thing,” she said. “They showed up in people's backyards with survey stakes, and people felt pretty attacked.” She said that 20 years later the issue has been handled differently. “The commissioners should be commended for doing this public participation,” she said.

Joseph Kroboth III, Washington County's public works director, said there's no local, state or federal money committed to the project, which has been estimated to cost about $16 million. Some at the meeting spoke in favor of the appeal of a new avenue for healthy exercise, and the possible tourism and economic development draw that a trail might have.
