Warsaw Town officials explore security options for Route 360 water tower

After a man almost jumped off the Route 360 water tower in War­saw, town offi­cials are look­ing for bet­ter secu­rity options. At a recent coun­cil meet­ing, Police Chief and Act­ing Town Man­ager Chris Spare said he asked Pub­lic Works Super­in­ten­dent David Woolard to look into bet­ter secu­rity around the lad­der well itself, pos­si­bly a fence, to restrict access to the lad­der that goes up the side of the water tower. Spare also said there could be grant money avail­able through the Vir­ginia Munic­i­pal League for secu­rity pur­poses. So far two esti­mates for the changes have been received, both about $14,000 for the fence.
