Courthouse renovation talks continue
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Discussions about renovations of the Berkeley County Courthouse continued Wednesday as the County Commission and architect Michael Proffitt reviewed options.
The projects to tackle first include the building's outdated electrical wiring and lack of emergency exits.
"When the building was constructed, we didn't have computers, we didn't have fax machines, we didn't have copy machines, and we need to upgrade to accommodate that," said County Administrator Deborah Sheetenhelm.
At next week's commission meeting, Proffitt is expected to have plans for where hallways and walls need to be cut for more exits and a rough cost estimate for electrical upgrades.
