And Martinsburg mayor George Karos and City Manager Mark Baldwin stopped by to talk some fun and some city business. Of course Apple Harvest is here. Both Mayor Karos and Mr. Baldwin seemed excited to see many of those festivities brought to the roundhouse this year. They also talked about the necessity to create a new wastewater treatment facility for the city. They just floated a bond for the engineering phase. They said the schedule is tight, but the city should be in compliance with new EPA regulations by the 2015 deadline.
