MARTINSBURG, W.Va. ? At least one Berkeley County Commission member took offense Thursday to the wording in a zoning document, saying the public could infer that the commission would take action on something that actually lies in the hands of voters.
"I've got a problem with having a piece of paper before me that says I'm going to accept a document I've never seen," Commissioner Steven C. Teufel said.
That "piece of paper" contained a schedule of public hearings and education meetings leading up to the May 2008 vote on whether to accept zoning in the county.
The zoning proposals would be made available for public review in county offices, libraries and kiosks, according to a memo reviewed at this week's commission meeting.
