Reedsville Park pavilion to get new lights soon

REEDSVILLE — The Reedsville Park pavilion will be getting lights soon.

At the Monday night meeting council voted to purchase wiring, boxes and junction headers for the lights. Councilman Greg Burke said the project will cost under $600.

In other business, Mayor Jason Titus said town Officer Paul Rowan issued a warning to a local resident giving 10 days to clean up the property. Titus said town attorney Mark Gaydos said the warning could be issued because dumps are essential and are open.

He said the homeowners indicated they have rented a storage building and will be moving some of the items into storage.

“It may not happen in 10 days but they are working on it,” Titus said referring to the cleanup order.

Council delayed canceling a touch-a-truck event scheduled for June 20. Council members said they are having difficulties finding a bounce house vendor for the event.

“We’ll give it another couple of weeks to check on bounce houses and to see the direction the state is taking on opening up,” Titus said.

“He (Gov. Jim Justice) said parks could be open in three to six weeks,” Councilwoman Renee Stone said.

In other park related discussion, Titus said the park restroom will be ready for use as soon as its water is turned on.

The next meeting of Reedsville Council will be 6:30 p.m. May 11.
