|R SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE fHURSDAY, MAY 18, 1978 County Saves Shepherdstown From Near Sewage Shutdown Setting a precedent for Jef- ferson County government, the County Commission on Thurs.,. May 4, granted a $53,000 Shepherdstown request that enables the town to proceed with its $2.2 million sewer project. With commitment on con- struction contracts due the following day, the project would have been scrapped, or delayed for an indeterminable period if Commission had denied funding. A delegation of Shepherdstown officials, including Mayor Charles Bosley, attended the Thursday meeting and pleaded urgency in the matter. No grant opportunities were available to the town after state refusal on Tuesday of a $100,000 Com- munity Partnership Grant, ___ - _ _ - CALL 725-9408 ANYTIME-ANY DAY 2 bedrooms - wall-to-wall car- peting - full basement.

He added that a commitment, alone, was needed, guaranteeing that money would be available in 18 months. Bosley stated that the town is under federal mandate to build the. sewage system, which is designed to serve several areas in the Shepherdstown environs, outside municipal boundaries. He added the town council's reluctance to approach Com- mission until it was necessary. The grant was awarded, Commission President J. T. Mentzer said, because the sewage system would be available to people outside Shepherdstown boundaries, the town had exhausted all possible sources of funding, and Com- mission recognized the gravity of the situation and had legal authority to provide assistance. The unanimous decision came after Commission learned it was authorized by state law to grant, but not loan, the money requested. In other action, Commission approved a petition from Sheriff Wilt for appointment of Earl Wade Hogan as conservator of the peace in Shannondale. The approval was based on recommendation from Wilt and the Shannondale Citizen's Association, and verification by William V. White, association president. Wall's Service Station, 107 E. Liberty St., Charles Town, was awarded a bid to provide gasoline and oil for Sheriff's office vehicles. Commission also voted to notify West Virginia congressman in Washington of its opposition to the Mathias- Fisher bill.
