MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The Berkeley County Commission Thursday approved $5,000 in funding to try and have the West Virginia Public Service Commission reconsider a decision favoring Martinsburg over the county in a utilities dispute.
The commission members voted to give $3,000 to the Opequon Service District and $2,000 to the Berkeley County Public Service Sewer District to show moral and financial support in the dispute over who will supply the Martin's Landing area with water and sewer service.
The city annexed the 13-acre tract in 1990 in a minor boundary adjustment, according to City Manager Mark Baldwin. He said the developer of the land requested the city provide sewer and water service.
