I was told that some people have already started fishing at Dents run damn, then I heard that fishing is not allowed there yet. Does anyone know the truth about this ?

Well, I heard that Joe Manchin made an agreement with Consol Mines to give them a water treatment plant for the mines in exchange for the mines dam up Dents Run, for hunting and fishing for his big shot friends. Where is our water treatment plant and why are we with Fairmont. Did anyone ask the residents of Mannington what they wanted. NO, NO, NO. It was a dun deal before it went to council.

The whole water deal is pure bullshit if you ask me. City Council should have voted to have the treatment plant rebuilt instead of putting in the water lines from Fairmont and agreeing to buy water from them.
The bad news is, that Fairmont has had nothing but trouble with the system,to the point of saying that it was outdated and over 100 years old. Hell they can't even provide for their own people, let alone the rest of the county. I guess that they figured once they had the rest of the county in their pockets, they'd rebuild their water plant. IMO it was nothing but a political move (right Randy E.?) The city figured that all they had to do was buy water from Fairmont for a set rate, and charge a higher rate to the residents, that way, they didn't have to pay the expenses of having a treatment plant, and they'd just sit back and make money. Fairmont threw a wrench into their plans , when they said that they needed to expand their plant to cover the additional customers, and needed to raise the rates by..get this.. 100%!!!!!
The council almost shit their pants, because now they are holding the bag, and won't be able to make nearly as much money as they were hoping. Bad news is, now they are raising Manningtons rates to an unheard of amount. My water bill avgs.$60-$80 a month...and thats conserving...no car washing, yard watering, or even excessive laundry !! They are even considering raising it even higher. They threaten disconnections over a 3 day late $35 bill...ASSHOLES I tell ya!!!!!!
It has been nothing but a huge clusterfuck...and the next time you see Randy E. in town, thank him. He was a major decider in switching to Fairmont. Bet it had something to do with being County Commissioner !!! DICK !!!
Lets see how long it is before we are out of water, just like Fairmont has been...on several occasions......
Shit like this just really pisses me off !!!!

Yes, but Joe Manchin came up with the money to deal for that property with consol for a water plant. A water plant that we needed and they didn't have the money for. Doesn't it seem a little unfair to you people that there was money for consols water plant (and consol didn't pay for it) and no money for Mannington's water plant. It was a political thing and we got the shaft. Now they are going to bury a lot of people with their price raising and we might have to call in a higher up to check into things. If people set around and let it happen, it will. Just sit back and watch the water prices rise, and then watch who goes without water the first time they have trouble in Fairmont. Everyone in Mannington will be looking to sale and find a place away from here by the time they are done. I'm already thinking about it. Nobody can afford the utilities now.

Is Curtisville not in Marion County? I'm sure it is,so it is covered by Marion County Parks & Recreation.

A buddy of mine works for mcparc and they are out there every day, even if maybe long enough to check on the trash and put tp in the shitter.
Have you not seen the revamp theyve done with the new shrubbery and not to mention the awesome job they did on the playground and camp sites?
