MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - When Martinsburg decides to participate in Berkeley County's enhanced 911 project, the City Council wants to make sure it has the last word on any street or address changes in the city, council members said last week.
The County Commission recently approved an ordinance giving 911 Director Mary Kackley the authority to change street and road names and assign addresses. The 911 upgrade will change virtually every address in the county.
The city, however, expects to retain most of its existing addresses, although there are some duplicate or similar-sounding streets that could be renamed. Some out of sequence street numbering could also be changed.
