West Va. “Make It Shine” cleanup

On Saturday, April 1 and 8, the Town of Bath will be participating in the statewide cleanup “Make It Shine.” This year’s event will be headed up by councilwoman Tiffany Peace White.

All the needed materials such as bags, gloves, hauling and landfill fees will be provided, Merki said.

Volunteers can contact town hall to participate.

“Cruise-ins” get approval

The Mountain State Cruisers will be using Berkeley Springs State Park on the first Friday of each month from May to September. The dates are May 5, June 2, July 7, August 4 and September 1.

Tony Verge, the Cruisers vice president, said the organization will also hold the Father’s Day Car Show on Sunday, June 18.

The Town Council approved Verge’s request to cover the parking meters to block off the west side of Fairfax Street to accommodate these events.

Street repairs exclude Ewing

Public Works Committee chair, Councilman Rick Weber said the town streets in need of repair will not include Ewing Street until the new house that’s under construction is built. The move will avoid heavy trucks damaging any road repairs.

He said town public works employee Rodney Steiner said street repairs will be on Kent, Congress and Depot streets. The street work funding is budgeted for FY 2017-18, which begins in July, and the designated repairs will be done after July 1.

Ballot commissioners chosen for June municipal election

Two ballot commissioners were appointed by the Bath Town Council at the February 7 meeting.

Independent party member Betty Kelley and Doug Waugh, a Republican were approved unanimously as ballot commissioners for the town municipal election on June 13.

“They did a very good job in the past,” said town recorder Vince Kidwell.
