CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Jefferson County officials and Jefferson County Schools officials on Thursday discussed how to deal with a mix-up over how much school impact fee money to authorize for Jefferson County's new high school.

Jefferson County Schools officials had estimated that about $3.9 million in impact fees would be available, but a county official said Thursday that he would have to reject that amount because the county had only earmarked up to $3.5 million.

The Jefferson County Commission agreed to fund up to $3.5 million in impact fees and determine later how to deal with more impact fee funding for the school.

The new high school, which will be called Washington High School, is being built next to the Huntfield development south of Charles Town.
